10 Skin Care Rules for Mature Skin 10 Skin Care Rules for Mature Skin 10 Skin Care Rules for Mature Skin

When it comes to how you behave, maturity is the gold standard. But when it comes to your skin? Well, you might not be quite as big of a fan. That’s because mature skin has its own set of concerns that typically aren’t appreciated, from sagging skin to wrinkles. The trick to embracing your aging skin the mature way is to follow certain skin care rules that will keep your complexion looking its best. Ready to care for your aging skin the right way? Below, we’re sharing 10 skin care rules for mature skin.

MATURE SKIN CARE RULE #1: WASH YOUR FACE WITH A CREAM CLEANSER

As skin matures, it can lose moisture, nutrients, and natural oils, resulting in drier skin. So, your first anti-aging skin care step should be reaching for a cream cleanser, like the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser. It’s formulated with replenishing oils to help gently yet effectively remove traces of makeup so that you can cleanse your skin without over-drying. Every morning and evening, lather the cleanser into wet hands, gently massaging it onto skin. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

MATURE SKIN CARE RULE #2: ILLUMINATE THE LOOK OF YOUR SKIN WITH SERUM

If you have mature skin and you haven’t yet added a serum to your anti-aging skin care routine, it’s time to get on it! As you age, the look of skin’s radiance can decrease. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Golden Serum is formulated with golden micro-reflectors to help illuminate the look of your complexion. Instantly, skin feels softer and appears refreshed. Apply this non-greasy, lightweight serum onto cleansed skin morning and night.

MATURE SKIN CARE RULE #3: ADD A LAYER OF HYDRATION WITH FACIAL OIL

After you apply your serum and smooth on a moisturizer for mature skin, consider using a facial oil for an extra layer of hydration. This simple step can help lock in moisture and give your skin a radiant look. Smooth a few drops onto your face slowly and deeply, using the whole surface of your hands. Immediately, skin feels nourished and appears more radiant. Bonus: Using a facial oil can be totally relaxing—you’ll feel like you’re giving yourself a mini facial right at home!

MATURE SKIN CARE RULE #4: DON’T FORGET ABOUT YOUR EYES

Ah, this is one skin care step that is often overlooked—but if you have mature skin, an eye cream is an absolute must for your anti-aging regimen. The thing is, as you age, your eye area can lose the look of vitality. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Eye Renewal Eye Cream helps hydrate the eye area immediately and diminish the appearance of dark circles, under-eye bags, and crow’s feet with continued use over time. After applying serum and/or facial oil, use your fingertips and apply a small amount of eye cream around your entire eye area. Be sure to pat gently until thoroughly absorbed.

MATURE SKIN CARE RULE #5: WEAR BROAD-SPECTRUM SUNSCREEN

We can’t stress enough how important it is to take sun protection measures. Spending prolonged periods of time in the sun without applying sunscreen can lead to visible signs of aging developing over time. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), you should wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher daily as well as reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or sweating. That’s not all for your sun protection routine, though. 

Per the FDA, you should also take other measures such as limiting your amount of time in the sun, seeking shade, and covering up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.

MATURE SKIN CARE RULE #6: USE A HYDRATING FOUNDATION

Since your skin tends to be a little more on the dry side, when applying makeup, it’s always smart to stick with hydrating formulas. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Radiant Serum Foundation with SPF 50 helps to keep skin hydrated and provides natural-looking, even coverage that won’t settle into lines. Best of all, this offering provides broad-spectrum sun protection. Call it a win-win. With the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, buff the foundation onto your skin, paying attention to the chin, neck, and hairline areas to avoid harsh lines. 

MATURE SKIN CARE RULE #7: CONCEAL DARK CIRCLES AND UNDER-EYE BAGS

To keep your skin looking as youthful and radiant as possible, masking your dark circles and under-eye bags is an absolute must. See, your eyes are usually the first spot that shows signs of aging, and adding a concealer into the mix—in combination with your eye cream—can help with that. Try the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Radiant Concealer with Hydrating Serum, which helps to hydrate and brighten the under-eye area. 

MATURE SKIN CARE RULE #8: GENTLY REMOVE MAKEUP BEFORE BED

While this skin care rule is essential for all skin types, mature skin especially can benefit from this tip. Excessive rubbing and pulling can tug the skin and cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop. And if you’re not diligent about removing makeup before bed, it can mix with dirt and oil that has built up throughout the day and lead to breakouts. Eek! Most importantly, it can prevent your nighttime anti-aging products from working their best. So, there’s no question about it, you’ll want to remove all makeup and apply your products to a clean face to keep your mature skin in proper shape. 

MATURE SKIN CARE RULE #9: APPLY A FACE MASK TWICE A WEEK

Pampering should always be on the menu! Give your skin a little extra TLC with the help of a face mask. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Face Mask steps in to refresh and renew your skin’s rosy tone, all while delivering a cooling sensation. Formulated with AHA, imperial peony, and a mineral exfoliant, this powerful gel mask instantly smooths and restores your skin. Now, that’s what we call an at-home spa experience!

MATURE SKIN CARE RULE #10: USE SEPARATE DAY AND NIGHT CREAMS

You’ve reached the end of your anti-aging skin care routine—so go ahead and pick up your moisturizer of choice. Here are two day creams to choose from:

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Day Cream: This day cream covers all the bases to hydrate and nourishes your mature skin.
