A lot of things change as you get older, and your skin care routine should be one of them. Of course, change can be challenging. To make it easier to switch your skin care products and learn a new regimen, it’s always helpful to have a few beauty hacks at your disposal. That’s exactly what we’re sharing, below. Here are six hacks for mature skin to help keep your complexion looking its best no matter your age.

Mature Skin Hack #1: Choose a Cream Cleanser

As skin matures, it can lose moisture, nutrients, and natural oils—and that can result in drier skin. You might think that skipping cleansing could help you hold onto moisture, but it isn’t the best idea to skip this skin care step. Instead, opt for a cream cleanser over other types of cleanser formulas. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser, formulated with replenishing oils, helps gently yet effectively remove traces of makeup and cleanse without over-drying. Skin feels smooth and comfortable after cleansing.

Mature Skin Hack #2: Moisturize for a More Youthful Look

Think back to images of yourself from childhood. Chances are you’ll remember pictures marked by rosy cheeks. Catch a look at yourself in the mirror today, and you may notice that you’ve lost that youthful-looking flush. That’s because as you age, your skin can start to look duller. Enter the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer, which is formulated to exfoliate dead skin cell buildup from the surface of your skin and revive skin’s rosy tone. The rich, non-greasy formula smooths gently over skin to nourish it with moisture, while rosy pigments help to reveal a youthful look. Immediately, skin feels hydrated and looks smoother. With continued use over time, skin appears renewed. Every morning, smooth the moisturizer gently onto cleansed skin in circular motions. Of course, you can also use blush to help fake that rosy youthful glow.

Mature Skin Hack #3: Learn to Love Facial Oil

Besides losing your rosy flush, you may also realize that your skin is becoming drier as you age. To help with hydration, consider using a facial oil before you apply moisturizer. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Facial Oil Light is formulated with a purifying blend of essential oils. It has a weightless finish that leaves skin looking dewy and vibrant, not greasy. Immediately, skin is hydrated and looks brighter. To use, apply 4-5 drops onto the palm of your hand. With your finger, dab the oil in small dots onto cleansed skin, then gently smooth and press the oil onto your face and neck using the whole surface of your hands. You can apply this facial oil in between cleansing and moisturizing morning and night.

Mature Skin Hack #4: Take Sun Protection Seriously

Sun protection should be part of every anti-aging skin care routine or really, every skin care routine, period. According to the Food and Drug Administration, you should apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher daily as directed. Remember to reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or sweating. But your sun protection routine shouldn’t end there. You should also limit your amount of time in the sun during peak hours (that’d be between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.), seek shade, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. Shopping trip, anyone?

Mature Skin Hack #5: Say Yes to Self-Tanner

You can create the look of a bronze glow at any age with the help of self-tanner. Try the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ ProPerfect Salon Airbrush Mist Deep Natural Tan or the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ Towelettes for Body.
