    How you Look and Feel in your 50s

      |  Jun 02, 2023

    By the time you hit your 50s, you’re likely pretty familiar with your body and how it has changed. And it’ll continue to change in this new decade! But understanding what shifts need extra support or attention can help you age well, inside and out.

    How you look


    In your 50s, the fat underneath your skin starts to thin out, which might cause your complexion to fade and facial features to lose definition. A drop in your estrogen levels might also contribute to your skin appearing and feeling drier, which makes lines and wrinkles appear deeper.

    Treatments like dermal fillers can fill in lines and wrinkles around the mouth, nose, and eyes. And since they’re made with hyaluronic acid, they can help keep your skin plump and hydrated. Options like hormone replacement therapy can also help optimize your hormone health.


    More than half of women over 50 experience hair loss. As you get closer to menopause, the hormones stimulating hair follicles decline, and some follicles stop producing new hair altogether.

    You can promote hair growth and prevent hair loss through a few different avenues. First is through oral supplements and serums like Nutrafol or Spironolactone.  There are also treatments like plasma hair restoration, which uses your own blood plasma to stimulate hair follicles.

    How you feel

    Mental Clarity

    You might experience mental fuzziness or “brain fog” as you get older, and hormone imbalances are usually to blame. The good news is that other cognitive abilities, like moral decision-making, regulating emotions, and reading social situations, are shown to improve around this time.

    To address the first issue, there are targeted treatments and oral supplements that can help unblock your mental traffic jam and give you a clearer mind.


    Energy levels tend to drop in your 50s. This can be due to lower hormone levels as you approach menopause, but it’s also affected by changes in fitness and lifestyle. The more physically active you stay around this time, the more energy your body retains.

    In addition to physical activity, replenishing essential vitamins can also give you an energy boost and fight fatigue.

    What you might not notice


    Around age 50, your bones’ remodeling process has slowed to the point where the breakdown of old bones begins to outpace the formation of new ones. This means your bones start to lose density more quickly, especially around the time of menopause.

    Bone health is an often overlooked aspect of aging, but there are a range of treatments and supplements to help support healthy bones.


    Around middle age, your nutritional needs start to shift. The body doesn’t absorb vitamin B12 or vitamin D as well as it used to, and you require more calcium for bone mass, and more vitamin B6 to help keep red blood cells healthy and strong. A shot of vitamin B12 can boost your levels quickly and promote brain function.
