Personal Care 101: Skincare Tips for Seniors

A good skincare routine helps us maintain the youthfulness and health of our skin. With it being our body’s initial barrier from infections and disease, ensuring its vitality is very important.

For seniors, skincare is highly encouraged. As we age, our skin loses its moisture, elasticity, and natural regeneration. As such, it becomes more prone to a variety of skin diseases and problems, including dryness, eczema, and discoloration. If not treated immediately, severe effects may take place.

Help your senior loved ones meet their skincare needs by enlisting the help of Lowenhill Home Care Services, a trusted home care agency in Pennsylvania.

Our caregivers have been trained with personal care. Over the years, we made sure of their comfort and confidence through the following skincare steps:

  • Bathing no more than once a day
    Overbathing can dry out the skin, especially if the water is too hot or too cold.
  • Using mild formulation soaps
    Harsh chemicals can strip away natural oils from the skin. We only use alcohol-free formulations to maintain your loved one’s moisture.
  • Moisturizing right after bathing
    While slightly damp, we immediately use a rich moisturizer or lotion to lock in moisture within the skin.
  • Wearing comfy, soft clothing
    Clothes made of cotton, cotton/poly blends, brushed cotton, soft flannels, or fleece are helpful to prevent skin tears.
  • Hydration is important
    Drinking water is the key to better skin. People who often drink water are less likely to suffer from scars, wrinkles, and soft lines. They won’t also show as many signs of aging.

These are just some of the ways we can help your senior loved one look and feel good. With our loving care, we are determined to keep them in good shape.

Nutrition Month 2022: Celebrate a World of Flavors

Food has its way of unifying cultures all over the world. This year, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics focuses attention on healthful eating and embracing global cultures, cuisines, and inclusivity. This month also highlights the expertise and skill of registered nutritionists.

This year’s theme, “Celebrate a World of Flavors”, showcases the importance of giving a place for every culture and cuisine at the table. Through food and every culture’s unique way of nourishing themselves, we aim to “celebrate cultural heritage, traditions, recipes, as well as finding appreciation in our diversity,” says registered dietitian nutritionist Libby Mills, a national spokesperson for the Academy in Philadelphia, PA.

This Nutrition Month, everyone is encouraged to make informed food choices and develop sound eating and physical activity habits they can follow all year long. The advice of food and nutrition experts are also encouraged and should be followed to help everyone develop individualized eating and activity plans to meet health goals.
