When you’re in your 50s, it’s important to put together a skin care routine that suits your skin’s changing needs. While you may feel as youthful and radiant as ever on the inside, you may notice that your skin feels drier and looks less bright and firm than it did when you were younger. The good news is, there are plenty of steps you can take to help keep your complexion looking gorgeous at any age. Below, we’re sharing four skin care tips for women over 50, including how to pick the best facial cleanser, face mask, moisturizer, and eye cream for your skin.
SKIN CARE TIP #1: switch to a cream FACIAL CLEANSER
As you age, your skin loses moisture, nutrients, and natural oils, which can result in drier skin. So, consider swapping out your current facial cleanser for one that has a creamy texture. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser is formulated with replenishing oils to gently yet effectively remove traces of makeup. Morning and evening, lather the cleanser into wet hands, gently massaging it onto your skin. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Immediately, skin is perfectly cleansed and feels soft, smooth, and comfortable.
SKIN CARE TIP #2: restore your rosy tone with moisturizer
If you’re in your 50s, it’s time to take a new approach to moisturizing. As skin matures, its ability to renew surface cells slows down, causing a buildup of dead cells on the surface. As a result, the natural pink tone is hidden and your complexion can become dull, losing its natural rosy tone of youth. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer is an intense daily moisturizing cream enhanced with rosy pigments to instantly revive skin’s rosy tone. Formulated with imperial peony and LHA, this daytime moisturizer gently exfoliates dull skin and revives the appearance of skin’s natural pink tone. Immediately, skin is hydrated and feels smoother, while skin appears renewed with continued use over time. Smooth it gently on clean skin in a circular motion every morning.
SKIN CARE TIP #3: add a glow-activating face mask to your routine
Slathering on a face mask isn’t just a way to relax after a long day—it can also be beneficial to your skin if you’re over 50. Make sure to look for one formulated for your skin’s specific needs, like the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Face Mask. This glow-activating face mask is formulated to instantly renew skin’s youthful rosiness in a fresh, cooling experience. Formulated with imperial peony, LHA, and a mineral exfoliant, this face mask helps slough away dull, dead skin cells from the surface for skin that looks visibly smoother. The gelee texture refreshes skin to help rejuvenate the look of a washed-out skin tone. To use, apply and leave the face mask on for five minutes, then gently massage it into your skin using light, circular motions to help exfoliate. Rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. For best results, use twice a week.
SKIN CARE TIP #4: don’t forget about eye cream
The skin around your eyes is very delicate—and because of that, it can give away your age. If you’re dealing with skin care concerns like crow’s feet or dark circles, it’s important to use an eye cream specifically designed to target them. Try the L’Oréal Paris Wrinkle Expert 55+ Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment, which is formulated to improve smoothness around the eyes with continued use over time for a more youthful appearance. It visibly reduces signs of aging around the eyes including crow’s feet and dryness. Every morning and night, apply a small amount around your entire eye area using your fingertips and smooth it gently until absorbed.
