USE THIS: In your 50s, skin starts to get dry and dull. Not only does it lose hydration, but our skin’s natural ability to purge dead skin cells slows down. The 2-in-1 Face Wash & Scrub is a refreshing facial cleanser made with biodegradable beads that invigorate tired, lacklustre skin. Its cooling aqua and menthol formulation energises and oxygenises the skin, while cleaning and exfoliating all in one.

WEAR THIS: Sure, there’s an emotional tie to your old hoodies, but you are 50 and they’re holding back your style. Make room in your dresser for a handful of well-made jersey in neutrals like beige, grey, and olive. Knitwear comes over more grown-up with jeans and a T-shirt than a sweatshirt or hoodie.
