In we older adults, skin conditions may become more numerous, and more noticeable, and our skin continues to thin and lose fat, elasticity, and moisture. Age spots seem to take up more acreage...

Has 'your' skin changed much or just slightly?

My skin has got thinner but I am on blood thinners and if I cut myself on my hands I have little feeling in them and blood goes everywhere.
I tell people it is no fun getting older.

The only change I have noticed is some dry skin on my arms that need moisturising frequently.

My facial skin shows 'my' age more than any other
area of skin on my entire body. Have had two questionable
areas frozen off, and now have several age spots on my face
as well.

Over the years, sun exposure without safety measures to
protect my skin has been the biggest contributor.

The skin on my legs and feet is much drier as I have aged.
According to my chiropodist is important to keep these areas moisturised as we age.

Keeping our dry skin moisturized sure is a positive.

Same. A small nick shaving looks like I’ve been stabbed...

Unfortunately we all are changing quicker than we want
I started using anti-age facial wipes to say Good Morning to my face ;-)
more different kind of creams for different areas... for lips I use the eye cream which is also a very delicate area
maybe you can recommend any tips which you know but we don't guys
It's interesting to get new advice to look better and feel better smile.png
