How to Get Glowy Mature Skin Year Round

Every glow starts with hydration and a good skin care routine.
December 07, 2023

Glassy, dewy skin
has steadily become an aesthetic that people of all ages are trying to obtain with endless serums, face masks, cleansers and other skin care products. However, this look can be difficult to achieve for those with mature skin that tends to lose elasticity and shine over the years with lowered levels of hyaluronic acid and collagen within the skin.


That doesn’t mean you should give up and just live with dull, dehydrated skin. Not only can mature skin stay moisturized with age, but it can also replicate a dewy, glowy look with the right skin care and makeup. Discover how to get dewy, glowy mature skin with the best dewy skin care products with nourishing ingredients that target signs of aging. Keep reading to learn about what skin care and makeup routine steps you can take to get the glowing skin of your dreams. 


5 Tips to Get Glowy Mature Skin

1. Gently Cleanse Your Skin

The first step for any skin care routine, regardless of your age or skin type, is to wash your face with a good cleanser that rids the face of all impurities (dirt, oil or sweat) that may clog your pores. For glowy mature skin, you’ll want to make sure you’re thoroughly washing your face at least twice a day, with a cleanser that won’t dehydrate your skin. Pick up a face wash made specifically for mature skin, like L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Skin Care Nourishing Cream Cleanser, which deeply cleanses without stripping the face of the oils it needs for more supple skin. 


2. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

Ensuring that your skin is dewy from the inside out requires that you properly moisturize. To maximize hydration, after washing your face, add a nourishing serum like L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum before your moisturizer day and night. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that enhances moisture retention, but over time the skin produces less of it. This makes it even more important to incorporate a hyaluronic acid product into your skin care routine if you have mature skin. 

After applying a hyaluronic acid serum, follow up with a moisturizer that won’t leave any greasy residue behind — remember we’re going for glowy, not greasy. Try L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives Micro Hyaluronic Acid + Ceramides Line-Plumping Water Cream, which works for all skin types with its non-irritating formula that applies like a lightweight gel. The formulation of hyaluronic acid and ceramides plumps skin and helps reduce fine lines, for a dewy complexion.

3. Incorporate Topical Antioxidants Into Your Skin Care Routine 

Antioxidants are essential for healthy, glowing skin because they help to counteract free radicals that damage the skin, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Free radicals attack the lipids in your skin that protect it from moisture loss, leading to visible signs of aging. For a nighttime routine, use the antioxidant-rich L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Midnight Serum and L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Skin Care Cell Renewal Midnight Cream, Antioxidants as a two-step system after your cleanser. 

Both formulas are perfect for mature skin because they’re formulated with antioxidants and vitamin E, which adds intense moisture to the skin while repairing the barrier for a smoother complexion, with minimized wrinkles and fine lines. The serum offers extra nutrients with the added hyaluronic acid that firms skin and gives you a more glowing complexion. 

4. Never Forget Your Sunscreen

No matter the weather or time of year, you should always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen to keep your skin protected from the dangerous UVA and UVB rays from the sun. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, all skin types should apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or more to reduce sunburns and signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines and sun spots. 

It’s never too late to start wearing sunscreen to protect your skin from further damage. Use a lightweight sunscreen like L’Oréal Paris Bright Reveal Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Daily UV Lotion, which helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and protects skin from sun-induced signs of aging.

5. Opt for Luminous Makeup Over Matte Finishes

Achieving dewy-looking skin is not only done through skin care, but through using the right makeup products, too. When it comes to a radiant complexion, opt for a foundation or tinted moisturizer that’s lightweight and luminous, like L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Radiant Serum Foundation with SPF 50. This serum foundation is formulated with vitamin B3 and hydrating serum to ensure it moisturizes the skin. It evens the skin tone, looks dewy, but not greasy throughout the day, and doesn’t settle into fine lines — it’s perfection for mature skin. 

If you want even more glow, grab the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer. Apply it as a base under your foundation for an all-over dewy look and go a step further by gently patting a touch of glow on top of your foundation on the cheekbones and bridge of your nose.
