The most exposed areas of the body particularly the face, scalp and arms are the most likely to develop spots, dryness, wrinkles and skin cancer.
For The Best General Protection
Use sunscreen. It's cheap and available without a prescription. If men used sunscreen instead of aftershave, they'd prevent many skin problems. Use a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or 50 (preferably 50) whenever you go out in the sun.
Don't smoke. Smoking yellows the skin, dries it out and greatly increases wrinkling, especially around the mouth.
Dry, Itchy Skin
Complaints of dry skin are extremely common after age 50 for good reasons...
Less Oil. Some oil glands in the skin stop producing the oil needed for lubrication.
Winter Itch. In low-humidity areas such as the desert Southwest, and during the winter months elsewhere, water evaporates from the skin very quickly.
Overwashing. We are a nation of clean freaks. We routinely wash away the oil layer that normally acts like plastic wrap, sealing in moisture Better: Bathe every other day and don't scrub too hard. Recommendations...
Bathe, don't shower. A shower equals an infinite number of rinsings. Sloshing around in the tub removes less oil.
Don't use bath oil. Most goes down the drain. The residue will make the tub slippery encouraging a fall. Instead, step out onto an absorbent mat and apply moisturizer while your skin is still wet, sealing in water. Pat dry.
Good moisturizers: Domol, Lubriderm, Hermal, Moisturel, mineral oil and the cheapest of all Crisco solid. Crisco is great for itching, too or to remove all doubt try the above Moringa Products.
