Care for mature skin: Be sure to include these tips in your 50 and 60+ beauty routine!

Over time, the skin shows the first signs of aging. The body produces less elastin and collagen (the proteins that make the skin plump and firm), making the skin appear thin and loose, and lines and wrinkles form more easily. The skin also no longer produces the same amount of moisture, so it becomes drier as you age. You’ll also notice that the skin’s pigment cells start to show in areas where you’ve suffered sun damage, causing age spots to form. This article is for all women over 50 or 60 who know that beauty comes from within, but who also want to look as good as possible. Discover how you should take care of your mature skin with us!

Not everyone needs exfoliation. Many people with sensitive skin find that they can’t at all. But for those who can, exfoliating can do wonders for the complexion: it buffers away extra dead skin cells on the epidermis and provides an even complexion and texture. Just make sure you find the right products and frequency for your skin type.

Nurture dehydrated, mature skin: Face Mask

Moisturizing masks strengthen your skin barrier. They are rich in skin-nourishing ingredients like peptides, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid, which can smooth lines and wrinkles through collagen production.

We would also like to point out that everyone is different. While the following recommendations are a good general routine, you know your skin better. So skip what you know isn’t right for you, and feel free to try a new step that you think might be just the way to go.

Facial care for mature, very dry or blemished skin: facial cleansing.

All people should ideally wash their face once a day with a gentle cleanser. Some prefer twice-daily cleansing, but these tend to be people with oily skin. For dry or sensitive skin, cleansing in the evening is sufficient . Going to bed with dirt, sebum and environmental toxins in your pores can break down the collagen in your skin.

Beautiful skin from 50 and 60: use moisturizing toner.

The facial toner is completely optional. If you are one of those people who can’t do more than the bare minimum, you should skip this step. But for those who like to indulge in their products, a moisturizing toner can provide the skin with nutrients and help balance the pH of the skin barrier after cleansing.

Anti-age face care – serum for your skin

Serums are light, thin skin care products filled with active ingredients. They usually have smaller molecules, allowing the active ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin. Here, you can address your most pressing skincare concerns with more sophistication. For example, if you have mature skin, you probably want a serum that tightens and firms the skin. While there are many, great ingredients that can support these goals, two of the best-studied ingredients are retinol and vitamin C. That’s why they’re often recommended for anti-aging skin care routines.

During the day, use a vitamin C serum, which can support collagen production, lighten dark spots, improve overall skin tone and fight free radicals. At night, opt for a retinol serum. Retinol is known to be one of the most important ingredients to fight the signs of aging. It stimulates the skin to produce collagen and elastin, which we lose as we age but are responsible for keeping the skin smooth, plump and firm. It also helps to smooth skin texture, reduce pigmentation spots and diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. These serums take time to produce results, but consistency and patience pay off.

Rich moisturizer for mature skin.

Creams and lotions are designed to moisturize. A good face cream for sensitive skin over 50 and 60 usually contains a combination of humectants, emollients and occlusive ingredients. Humectants (such as glycerin, aloe and hyaluronic acid) help draw water into the skin. Emollientia support and nourish the barrier. Occlusive ingredients seal everything in and help retain water.

Eye cream: important in the facial care routine.

Although not everyone needs one, eye creams can contain additional ingredients to meet the special needs of the eye area. The skin around the eyes is much more sensitive and also more prone to movement. Eye creams can combat these fine lines as well as dark circles, puffiness, and to some degree, bags under the eyes.

If you decide to use a facial oil, there are several ways to incorporate it into your routine: Use it during a facial massage, apply it at night, or skip the moisturizer and use the oil as a skincare step .

Don’t forget sunscreen

Sunscreen is essential, no matter how old you are or what stage of your skin care routine you’re in. There are two classes of sun protection factors: chemical and mineral.
