The best skin of your life may well be ahead of you. Sure, with each passing decade, you face fresh challenges in your quest for a radiant complexion: There are the newfound crow's feet in your 40s, the postmenopausal dryness in your 50s, and the sagging that sets in by your 60s. But the right products and procedures will prepare you to meet these challenges head-on.

"These days, it's perfectly reasonable to expect your skin to get better as you age — no matter what the date on your driver's license," says Dr. Ranella Hirsch, president of the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery and a cosmetic dermatologist in Cambridge, Mass.
Still, knowing what's right for you — from the most potent creams to the latest lasers — can be confusing. That's where this decade-by-decade guide comes in. It's filled with everything you need to know, including exactly what to use when. Follow along and your skin's future will look very bright.


Choose an eye cream with caffeine to help make dark circles less noticeable. In Your 40s and 50s

Image
By your 30s, some signs of aging will start to show up on your skin, so choose products that fight back against the signs of age. Opt for a facial moisturizer that's lightweight and intensive to correct dry patches and refresh your skin's glow. A moisturizer will also improve the texture of your skin, which may start to get rough spots as you progress through your 30s. Many women in their 30s have dark circles under their eyes: Choose an eye cream with caffeine to help make dark circles less noticeable.
In Your 40s and 50s
Your skin will get increasingly thinner as you age, and even good skin will start to show signs of aging during your 40s and 50s, especially around your mouth and eyes. Resist the urge to use a heavy-duty moisturizer, which will only make your skin greasy; instead, opt for a lightweight lotion with antioxidants to prevent age spots and promote glow. At night, use a face cream with retinol, which refreshes the top layer of your skin and helps fill in wrinkle…

Weight Loss Tips: Make Healthy Lifestyle Changes

Image
In addition to your food and eating-related choices, you can also support your weight loss and dieting efforts by making healthy lifestyle choices.
Get plenty of sleep. Lack of sleep has been shown to have a direct link to hunger, overeating, and weight gain. Exhaustion also impairs your judgment, which can lead to poor food choices. Aim for around 8 hours of quality sleep a night.
Turn off the TV. You actually burn less calories watching television than you do sleeping! If you simply can’t miss your favorite shows, get a little workout in while watching. Do easy exercises like squats, sit-ups, jogging in place, or using resistance bands or hand weights.Get plenty of exercise. Exercise is a dieter’s best friend. It not only burns calories, but can actually improve your resting metabolism. No time for a long workout? Research shows that three 10-minute spurts of exercise per day are just as good as one 30-minute workout. Take the stairs instead of the elevator or park in the back of th…

4 Step Skin Care

Image
Perhaps you regularly experience late nights studying or entertaining, or you’re occasionally up with a sick child. Daily shower aside, if you find yourself with limited time to get beautified in the morning the following is a must-do regimen before starting your day. In order to apply the proper product you must know your skin type – oily, normal/combination, dry, sensitive or sun damaged. 
Cleanse: The key here is simplicity.  Find a good cleanser that works well with your skin, avoiding bar soaps as they tend to be drying.  Take care not to over-cleanse (nightly should be sufficient). In the morning, a lukewarm water rinse is enough to remove excess oils from last night’s moisturizing. 
Exfoliate: Use a gentle scrub with tiny grains to remove the top layer of dead skin cells that dull the complexion.  This will keep skin glowing year-round. 
Moisturize: Your skin will tell you how much to moisturize; when it’s tight, it needs hydration.  Be careful not to over moisturize or you may clog …

Dr. Terry Dubrow knows how to de-age your skin — and his tips aren't what you think a top California doctor might tell us.

He says that you can eat almost anything and should get a little sun.

Yesterday, the star of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" talked to us about how early and how often to do plastic surgery.

Today, he takes on a slew of your most asked skin care and skin de-aging questions:



Q: How much Botox is too much? Yesterday, you said that Botox for the ladies of the OC is like getting your nails done.

A: "In the OC, people don't want their faces to move. At the first sign of moving, they want more Botox. I have women who want it every three months. I say to go five or six months. Get a little movement back in your face, which is completely fine. Then go in and do a little touch up. I recommend that twice a year with the Botox is enough."

Q: I get a lot of letters from women over 40 who suffer from adult acne. Any suggestions for them?

A: …
