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 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. Below, check out our guide to skin care for those over 50 so that you can successfully take care of your mature skin.
As you age, your skin loses moisture, nutrients, and natural oils, which can result in drier skin. So, consider swapping out your 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.
If you’re in your 50s, it’s time to take a new approach to moisturizing. Since your skin loses moisture as you age, it’s a good idea to look for an ultra-hydrating moisturizer that’s formulated for mature skin, such as the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition - Golden Balm Face, Neck & Chest. This rich, luxurious balm intensely moisturizes to nourish mature skin. The rich, butter-soft balm melts into skin for nourishing comfort without tugging or pulling dry skin. Immediately, skin is hydrated. Apply it onto cleansed skin and use alone or wear under makeup. Rub the formula between your fingers, smooth the balm gently onto your face in an upward and outward motion, and smooth it from your neck to jawline, then upper chest until absorbed.
Drier skin may not be the only change you experience in your 50s—you could also start to notice sagging skin as well. Your skin’s ability to retain moisture decreases as you age, which can result in the appearance of sagging skin. So, consider using the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Day/Night Cream, which is formulated for mature, very dry skin. This decadent cream moisturizes mature skin, providing long-lasting hydration and comfort. With continued use over time, skin appears firmer. Every morning and evening, apply the moisturizer onto cleansed skin, smoothing it gently on your face in an upward and outward motion. Then, smooth it from your neck to jawline and upper chest until absorbed.
Sun protection shouldn’t stop in your 50s—it’s essential to protect your skin no matter what age you are. The last step in your skin care routine should be applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil SPF 30 is a facial oil formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen. This lightweight, non-greasy facial oil for mature skin provides long-lasting hydration, ultra-soft comfort, and a glow. Every morning, gently smooth 4-5 drops with your fingers from your nose to ears and outer eye area. Next, smooth it from your eyebrows to your hairline in an upward motion. Finally, smooth it from your neck to jawline, then upper chest until absorbed.
In addition to applying (and reapplying) a broad-spectrum sunscreen or a facial oil with broad-spectrum sunscreen as directed, there are other sun protection measures you should take as well. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), you should also limit your time in the sun and when possible and try to avoid the sun’s peak hours from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You should also add protective accessories like large sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat into your outdoor attire, as well as long sleeves and pants to cover up any exposed areas.
