Skin becomes dull with age
Skin changes in a variety of ways as you age, but this one affects your skin’s glow the most. Over time, skin loses its density, becoming thin to the point that it almost appears translucent. One reason for this is related to microcirculation, which is the circulation of blood through tiny capillaries that brings oxygen and nutrients to cells. As we age, that microcirculation slows down, reducing the number of nutrients being delivered to the skin while also making it more difficult for cells to eliminate toxins. The skin’s ability to renew itself also slows down. The biggest visible effect of this? Your skin starts to lose its rosy colour, making it look like you have dull skin when you feel anything but.
Choose the best anti-aging skincare for mature skin
Having a proper skincare routine is important at any age, but it can have even more of an impact as skin matures. If this is an area in your personal care that you’ve neglected, don’t ever feel like it’s too late to start.
One product everyone needs in their skincare routine is a moisturizer. Finding the best anti-aging moisturizer for mature skin depends on your skin’s specific needs, and there are several options that will do exactly what you need to get glowing skin. Those with mature skin may experience dehydration, a condition that’s different from dry skin. While dry skin is a skin type with symptoms like flakiness and itching, dehydrated skin is more of a temporary condition caused by things like lack of sleep, not drinking enough water and, yes, aging. The good news is that, unlike dry skin, dehydrated skin is easy to treat with the best anti-aging skincare, and that starts with your anti-aging moisturizer. L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer is our best moisturizer for mature skin. It’s formulated with exfoliating LHA and Imperial Peony extract to instantly boost rosy radiance and hydrate your skin without feeling greasy. The result? Your natural flush is boosted, and your skin looks firmer and feels smoother. And if fragrance sensitivity is an issue, get all the skincare benefits of the original formula in a fragrance-free version: L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Day Cream Fragrance-Free.
When caring for mature skin, it’s important to give extra care and attention to the eye area. Skin here is not only thinner than it is on the rest of your face but it’s also some of the hardest working, making expressions every time you smile, laugh, frown, raise an eyebrow or even blink. Sluggish microcirculation is even more visible around the eyes, resulting in shadows, puffy under eyes and a tired appearance. Tend to this delicate area with L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Eye Contour Cream. The impressive formula of this anti-aging eye cream has five benefits in one cream, tackling under eye dark circles, fine lines, under eye bags, puffy eyes and crepey lids. A bright and refreshed look comes courtesy of the wonder exfoliant LHA.
Boost the microcirculation of your face to get glowing skin
Now that you’re using the right anti-aging skincare products to give your mature skin a glowing finish, did you know that how you apply your skincare products can maximize their radiance-enhancing effects? Yes, there are techniques that you can use to manually boost blood and lymph microcirculation, making dull skin a thing of the past. Incorporating some simple massage techniques into your skincare application is not only effective but also feels good. Start by performing circular massages all over your face, gently lifting upwards, and then gently tap the skin with your fingertips. You can do this while applying your anti-aging moisturizer. Your skin will thank you for this extra effort, and you’ll be rewarded with glowing skin. Who said mature skin has to be dull?
