    How you Look and Feel in your 60s

      |  Jun 01, 2023

    With every new decade comes new changes to your body and mind — some more welcome than others. But by informing yourself of what’s coming, and getting to know the options out there that can help you feel good at any age, you’ll be prepared to thrive in your 60s.

    How you look


    Post menopause, your estrogen levels decline and androgen levels increase. This combination can make your skin appear thinner and even lead to acne you hadn’t seen in years. Simultaneously, the bone tissue underneath your skin begins breaking down, causing gradual volume loss.

    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.


    In your 60s, the natural oil in your scalp (sebum) diminishes, causing strands to feel dry and brittle. With hair follicles producing slower sebum, flyaways can become more noticeable without the natural oils to smooth them down.

    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. A more invasive procedure is plasma hair restoration, which uses your own blood plasma to stimulate hair follicles. There are also topical options that you can use at home to reactivate hair follicles for fuller hair.

    How you feel


    Being a “light sleeper” can often come with age. During your 60s, it might take longer to fall asleep and you might wake up more easily during the night. Postmenopausal women are also more than twice as likely to have sleep apnea than premenopausal women.

    Luckily, there are many sleep aids available, like melatonin and Ashwagandha, that can help you get a good night’s rest.

    What you might not notice

    Bone Health

    Your joints are living, active tissues that change as you get older. Typically acting as a cushion for bone movement, the cartilage and lubricating fluid inside your joints tend to wear away in your 60s, causing you to feel more stiff.

    Certain adaptogens and supplements can help balance estrogen levels and provide pain relief benefits, reducing muscle aches and pains.

    Immune System

    As you get older, your immune system ages with you, becoming slower to respond and fight off viruses. In your 60s, you might notice you get sick more easily and have a harder time recovering.
    Certain treatments can help boost your immunity throughout your 60s to help you recover faster. That, in addition to vitamins and supplements targeted at your immune system, can provide support that helps you take control of your aging, inside and out.
