moisturisers for elderly skin

Hi, a question about elderly skin. Thankfully, my parents have had their Covid jab (70s). The nurse administering the jab told my dad that his skin is very very dry. He is a stubborn man and won't readily go to his GP. What over the counter moisturisers can I buy for him?

Retinol

Retinol – I know that this is the one thing that people say makes a big difference to your skin, but I don’t understand all the different types – what would you suggest?

Sunscreen

My mother has never put on sunscreen in her life and assures me that her leathery skin doesn’t need it at her age. I disagree as she looks like she has baked for years but I am sure she should still be putting cream on?

Bruises

My elderly parent’s skin is paper thin and he bruises very easily, is there anything you would advise I can do to look after it better?

creams

I have always used moisturiser on my whole body but as I get older should I be using a thicker cream?

Wrinkles

As I am moving into the menopauses my skin is turning into my elderly mothers – ie all wrinkly; is there anything I can do to either prevent this as seems to be happening before my eyes! Someone mentioned to look at my oestrogen levels?

skin tags

I am 68.
I seem to be developing a number of skin tags on my neck, which are very irritating.
Is there anything I can do?
