Best Serums For Mature Skin


As you age, the skin care products you used when you were younger may no longer be the right ones for your skin. Aging, mature skin has its own set of needs. One product that you should consider adding to your skin care routine if you have mature skin (and you haven’t added it already) and you’re looking to combat dullness, hydrate dry skin, or stave off fine lines and wrinkles is an anti-aging serum. 

Of course, that raises the question, when it comes to mature skin, what is the best anti-aging serum for dull skin? How about the best serum for dry skin or the best wrinkle serum? Here, read all about the best anti-aging serums so you can find the right one for your aging skin concerns, as well as tips for pampering your beautiful complexion.

What Is the Best Serum for Aging Skin? 

Serums offer a concentrated amount of active ingredients, making them the ideal choice for those with mature skin who want to keep wrinkles at bay or rectify a loss of radiance. Here, we’re sharing five of the best anti-aging serums for mature skin, including our favorite face serum for wrinkles.

The Best Serum for Dry, Mature Skin

Mature skin can feel dry because it loses moisture as it ages, so if hyaluronic acid isn’t already part of your anti-aging skin care routine, we’re about to convince you that it should be. This intensely hydrating ingredient can help enhance your skin’s moisture retention. Introduce your skin to hyaluronic acid with the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which absorbs quickly to re-plump and hydrate for visibly replenished, youthful-looking skin.

The Best Serum for Dull, Mature Skin

As you age, skin can start to look less radiant because of a  decrease in its ability to retain moisture. Besides applying more moisturizer, an illuminating serum can seriously help with both. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Anti-Aging Midnight Serum is formulated with an exclusive antioxidant recovery complex that works at night when skin reaches its peak of cell renewal. Over time, you’ll see smoother and more radiant skin, as well as smoothened wrinkles. Use this pick morning and night.

The Best Serum for Wrinkles

Allow us to introduce you to one of the best wrinkle serums — the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 12% Pure Vitamin C + E + Salicylic Acid Serum. This vitamin C serum effortlessly glides onto skin to restore its radiance and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, as well as correct uneven skin tone and reduce the look of pores. The pure vitamin C combats early signs of aging, leaving the skin brighter and smoother after just a few weeks of continued use, and can be used morning and night.

The Best Serum for Deep Wrinkles

Not all wrinkles are the same. If you have deep wrinkles, you need something made to target that specific concern. The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives Night Serum, 0.3% Pure Retinol is formulated with pure retinol, which is a top dermatologist-recommended anti-aging ingredient that’s proven to help fight deep wrinkles. Immediately, skin feels moisturized with a more refined texture, and over time, wrinkles are visibly reduced. Use at night.

Editor’s tip: You don’t have to pick just one serum for you mature skins. To reap all the benefits, you can layer them. Start with your hyaluronic acid serum, then apply the retinol serum at night or the vitamin C serum on top in the morning.

The Best Serum for Dark Spots

Age spots can be another unwelcome effect of aging, but the right serum can help fade their appearance. Address dark spots with the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Glycolic Acid Serum for a more even skin tone, as the glycolic acid in the formula is a powerful resurfacing agent. After two weeks of nightly use, dark spots will be visibly improved. 

How to Use Anti-Aging Serum

Prep your skin for  serum with a cleanser, then apply an even layer of your serum of choice onto your freshly-cleansed skin. To use more than one serum, apply them starting with whichever one has the thinnest consistency, and work your way up to the thickest. Follow up with your moisturizer — try the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Day Lotion SPF 30 for the morning because it has built in sun protection.

Some serums will have an acclimation period, and this means you shouldn’t jump straight into applying it every day. In the first week, apply it twice a week. During the second week, increase to applying the serum every other night. By week three, if your skin can tolerate it, you can start nightly use.

Editor’s tip: Keep in mind, some serums can be used morning and night while others are meant to be applied only at night. Don’t play amateur derm and follow the directions for the formula you’re using.
