Your Guide to Taking Care of Mature Skin Your Guide to Taking Care of Mature Skin Your Guide to Taking Care of Mature Skin

As the years come and go, it’s probably safe to say that you’ve taken notice of how your skin has changed. But if you haven’t switched up your skin care routine in what feels like forever, it might finally be time to start acting your age—well, when it comes to how you care for your complexion, that is. 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 you’re cleansing your skin, it’s a good idea to opt for a creamy cleanser—and stay away from foaming ones, which may be too stripping. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Facial Cream Cleanser is 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 can 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, protect against free radical damage, and illuminate skin. After cleansing, apply the serum. You can use it morning and night.

3. Add a Facial Oil to Your Routine

You know how you’ve been hearing about facial oil everywhere these days? Well, there’s a good reason for that, as it can be nourishing. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil is formulated for mature skin with a blend of eight essential oils to help replenish skin and restore your glow. (Yep: As your skin matures and becomes drier thanks to the loss of moisture, it can start to look dull.) To use, put four to five drops of the facial oil into your palm, then use your fingers to gently dab it onto cleansed skin in small dots. Smooth the facial oil slowly over your entire face, from nose to ears, eyebrows to hairline, and neck to jawline.

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 15 or higher every day—even on cloudy days (hate it 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 repairs itself while you sleep—so it’s important to apply a moisturizer before hitting the sack. 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. At night, apply it to cleansed skin, layering it on after serum. 

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 chest! 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 Golden Balm Face, Neck, & Chest is a luxurious balm formulated for mature, very dry skin. To use, rub the balm between your fingers and smooth it gently on your face in an upward and outward motion. Then, smooth it from your neck to jawline and upper chest until it’s absorbed.
