Senior skin is more likely to tear and lose moisture and elasticity than younger people, which is why live-in Dallas caregivers need to take extra precautions to help care for their loved one’s skin. Choosing the right products to protect, repair, and rejuvenate aging skin can be difficult, but with the following tips and product recommendations, senior skin care can be a breeze.
Using skin lotions that are rich in vitamins A, C and E along with glycerin are key ingredients to look for. On labels, vitamin A can be listed as retinol, C as ascorbic acid and E as tocopheryl acetate. Glycerin, shea butter, petrolatum and natural oils such as almond and olive are also good ingredients to look for. On the other hand, be sure to avoid products that are highly scented or colored because those ingredients are not only unnecessary, but can cause adverse skin reactions like redness or rashes.
Making sure your senior loved one has healthy skin, like many other health virtues, starts with a proper diet. Be sure to help your loved one eat plenty of foods rich in protein such as chicken, fish, beans, and yogurt. Additionally, many seniors have difficulty drinking enough water. Staying hydrated is essential for maintaining healthy skin. A daily vitamin that contains A, C and E is also ideal for seniors as these vitamins promote skin health from the inside out.
Skin health isn’t the only important aspect of aging. As we age, our bodies and minds need regular maintenance as well. With help from Home Care Assistance of Dallas, seniors receive cognitive stimulation, emotional support, and help maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
