5 Ways to Moisturize Mature Skin 5 Ways to Moisturize Mature Skin 5 Ways to Moisturize Mature Skin

It’s common for your skin to experience more dryness as you age when compared to in years prior. This is due in part to the fact that your oil producing glands will reduce the amount of oil they create, little, by little, by little. So, even if you had previously had oily skin in your teens, 20s or 30s chances are that by age 40, your once oily skin will start to experience some dryness. And, once you are in your 50s and 60s, your mature skin may become even more dry. Dry skin can be uncomfortable and appear flaky and parched. You may also find that when your skin is dry, your existing fine lines and wrinkles appear more noticeable. Don’t let this sign of mature skin aging put a damper on your otherwise beautiful skin. Instead, try to not limit your moisturizing efforts to one face cream and look for multiple ways to nourish and hydrate dryness.


Mature skin moisturizing skin care product #1: Serum with antioxidants. Skin serums are typically lightweight – this makes them great for layering under your day or night cream – and they can contain higher concentrations of anti-aging ingredients. A serum formulated with antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin A or vitamin E can help reduces oxidative stress in your skin while delivering moisture at the same time.


Mature skin moisturizing skin care product #2: Day cream with SPF. Protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays that have the ability to not only exaggerate some existing signs of skin aging, but exacerbate skin dryness too. UV rays can cause any existing or added moisture on your skin’s surface to evaporate, leaving behind dryness and further dehydrating your mature skin. So seek shade when you can and protect your skin with a daytime moisturizer formulated with SPF broad spectrum protection.


Mature skin moisturizing skin care product #3: Night cream with retinoids. Retinoids, like pro-retinol, are derivatives of Vitamin A that can help refine the surface of your skin. While refining your mature skin’s surface, dry, dead skin cells can be loosened and removed, revealing skin that appears more bright, fresh and hydrated.


Mature skin moisturizing skin care product #4: Nourishing facial oil. Perfect for nourishing mature skin dryness, facial oil formulas can be used alone or in combination with other moisturizing skin care products. You can add a few drops of facial oil into your day or night cream or apply it as a first layer of intense hydration under your serum and face cream. You can also apply facial oil as a final layer of moisture, to act as a barrier that seals in that added hydration from your serum and creams.


Mature skin moisturizing skin care product #5: Eye cream with hyaluronic acid. The skin around your eyes can become very dry – and in turn become more likely to wrinkle and sag especially as you age. Surge this area with moisture in the morning and at night with an eye cream specifically formulated for this dry skin area. An eye cream formulated with hyaluronic acid will help dry skin in this area appear more plump and feel better hydrated for longer periods of time.


You may have to think beyond your face cream in order to truly hydrate mature skin dryness, but that’s not a problem, because thankfully there’s a bunch of moisturizing skin care products out there that can help hydrate your very dry skin.
