Truth In Aging’s Real Beauty At Any Age Report is our new annual survey of our devoted members, and we are overwhelmed by the responses that have been flooding in. I am amazed by your candor, optimism and self-belief. It seems the Truth In Aging community truly knows itself to be beautiful at any age. We’ll be sharing results and trends for all age groups over the coming weeks, starting now with skincare concerns for 50-somethings and up.
76% of 50-somethings told us that sagging skin is their top concern, as did 79% of 60-somethings. Well, at 54, I can relate to that. I don’t obsess too much about wrinkles, but the slightest indication of a drooping jowl will have me running for help. And, so it seems, sagging is the most prominent sign of aging for all of us.
Don’t reach for the retinol or AHAs. They will thin and dry out the skin with overuse and over time will exacerbate the issue. Moisturizing offers only temporary respite and, in fact, over-moisturizing can drag older skin even more, as well as blocking pores.
Medik8 Firewall ($145 in the shop) first impressed me four years ago, and it still impresses to this day (and not just me — the feedback from the Truth In Aging community has been super positive). Medik8 Firewall combines some potent anti-agers, including copper peptides, matrixyl 3000, liprochroman-6 and niacinamide. It comes in a snazzy, dual chamber bottle so that the copper is mixed with the other actives just before application.

By our 50s, concerns about fine lines have given way to wrinkles. Turns out 66% of 50-somethings cited wrinkles as their second major skin concern as did 70% of 60-somethings.
