As the years come and go, it’s probably safe to say that you’ve taken notice of how your skin has changed—but has your skin care routine changed with it? If you haven’t switched up your routine in what feels like forever, it might finally be time to start acting your age—when it comes to how you care for your complexion, that is. And we’re not just talking about using a daily facial moisturizer or face scrub a few times a week—there’s more to anti-aging skin care than that. If you’ve got mature skin, listen up! Follow these tips and tricks to help keep your skin youthful-looking.

1. WASH YOUR FACE WITH A CREAM CLEANSER

As your skin matures, it can lose moisture, nutrients, and natural oils, which can result in drier skin. So, when it comes to your facial cleanser, it’s a good idea to opt for a cream cleanser—and stay away from foaming ones, which may strip your skin too much. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser is perfect for mature skin, as it’s formulated with replenishing oils and gently yet effectively removes traces of makeup. Every morning and night, lather the cleanser into wet hands and gently massage it onto your skin. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

2. USE A SERUM

Another change you can look forward to as you age: Your skin’s cell renewal may slow down, which can result in a lack of radiance. Not fair! So, what can you do? It’s time to add a serum to your skin care routine! The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Golden Facial Serum helps to promote surface skin cell renewal and illuminate skin. After cleansing, apply the serum morning and night.

Another powerful ingredient to look out for when you’re choosing a serum is hyaluronic acid. This ultra-hydrating ingredient is a popular pick for anti-aging formulas and is often found in serums in particular, which can conveniently be layered under the rest of your products. Want to give HA a try? Apply the L'Oréal Paris RevitaLift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum onto clean skin every morning and night, then layer your favorite facial moisturizer on top.

3. USE AN EYE CREAM

In our opinion, you’re never too young to start using an eye cream, and that’s because the skin around your eyes is extra delicate and also more prone to showing signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Better yet, using a daily and nightly eye cream can help reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles under eyes, which we’re all bound to experience every once in a while. For this step in your mature skin routine, we’re partial to the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Eye Gel, which is formulated with nourishing manuka honey, oils, and antioxidants. This eye gel leaves the eye area with a more youthful-looking and refreshed appearance, so you can understand why we’re fans.

4. ALWAYS WEAR SPF

Applying a broad-spectrum SPF should be the last step in your morning skin care routine regardless of your age or skin type. Here’s why: When skin is exposed to the sun without protection, it can lead to damage—and that damage can show up on your skin as visible signs of aging like dark spots or wrinkles years later. Not cool. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends wearing an SPF of 15 or higher every day—even on cloudy days (hate to break it to you, but you can still get burned then). Make sure you apply it 15 minutes before you go outside—and remember to reapply every two hours.

5. SLATHER ON A NIGHT CREAM BEFORE YOU GO TO BED

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, your skin renews and refreshes itself while you sleep—so it’s important to apply a moisturizer before hitting the hay. Looking for something decadent? The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Day/Night Cream is formulated for mature skin with calcium and precious oils. Another great option is the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Night Balm. Whichever option you choose, apply it on cleansed skin every evening, layering it on after your serum of choice. 

6. DON’T FORGET YOUR NECK AND CHEST

If you diligently swipe on serums and moisturizers to your face every day, that’s great—but don’t neglect your neck and décolletage! They deserve some love, too—so make sure you extend your skin care routine past your jawline. The L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All Over Balm – Face/Neck/Chest/Hands is a luxurious balm formulated to replenish moisture in skin. To use, rub the balm between your fingers and smooth it gently onto your face in an upward and outward motion. Then, smooth it from your neck to jawline and upper chest until it’s absorbed.

Your skin care routine isn’t the only thing in need of adjusting as you age—your makeup routine is likely to require the same treatment. Think it might be time to overhaul your makeup routine, too? Here are 8 Makeup Tips for Women Over 50.
