Older people and skin: Challenging perceptions
from British Journal of Nursing via PubMed
In this article, we set out to challenge perceptions about older people and skin. We examine current portrayals of older people and skin, both in the media and in the nursing literature. We describe the "normal" process of skin aging and highlight the importance of maintaining skin integrity and effective barrier function for health and well being, particularly in older people.
