The Anti-Aging Moisturizing Guide

Discover the best anti-aging cream for your mature skin with this foolproof selection of moisturizers that fight wrinkles, dark spots and skin-barrier issues.

Perhaps you remember the good old days when your complexion was smooth, supple and radiant (if perhaps a tad blemish-prone) and you would gladly accept a pimple or two if you could get it back. But as our skin ages, issues like loss of firmness, dark spots, dryness and even increased sensitivity can be standard fare—and they progress with each year that passes. Your defence? The best anti-aging cream for your unique concerns. Whether you want an overall anti-aging fix, assistance with dark spots or a barrier repair cream that will treat sensitive skin and signs of aging, here’s a map to the best wrinkle cream for you (plus a few extra goodies to help you on your quest for smooth, supple, radiant skin at any age).

If you need maximum support…

Got every aging concern in the book? Like a professional skin treatment in your beauty cupboard, L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR Day Moisturizer is an intensive multi-action day cream that targets three main signs of aging: wrinkles, loss of firmness and loss of elasticity. Smooth it over your face, jawline and neck each morning and watch it work over time to repair fine lines, firm up your skin and restore elasticity with active ingredients that include hyaluronic acid (which increases skin hydration for more plumpness) and ProXylane (another skin plumper that supports the production of collagen and elastin, both of which are necessary building blocks for a youthful complexion).

Pair it with…

Stay within the Revitalift family with a cleanser and toner that will gently remove makeup and soften the skin, a fast-absorbing serum with additional hyaluronic acid and an eye cream that smooths and lifts the eye area.

Your buys: L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Face Cleanser & Toner, L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR Hyaluronic Acid Serum and L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR Eye Cream.

If you need brightening…

Your best bet is to use a treatment (say, a brightening serum, mask or night cream) that targets dark spots and then an anti-wrinkle cream with sun protection during the day. Using daily SPF is the best way to prevent new spots from forming and to maintain the progress you make with brightening treatments. Try L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR Day Moisturizer SPF 20, which not only plumps the skin and restores elasticity with hyaluronic acid and ProXylane but also provides broad-spectrum sun protection against the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays.

Pair it with…

Choose an exfoliating cleanser that contains glycolic acid to fade dark spots. Next, apply a vitamin C serum to improve radiance, and then dab on an eye cream that brightens and smooths dark circles.

Your buys: L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Face Cleanser & Toner, L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR Vitamin C Serum and L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Tone Eye Cream.

If you have sensitive skin…

Your skin barrier is likely compromised if you deal with sensitive skin, which means you need a gentle anti-aging moisturizer that will repair the barrier to improve moisture retention. Recognized by the Canadian Dermatology Association, the best wrinkle cream for your sensitive skin is L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Cicacream Day & Night Moisturizer. It contains Centella asiatica (tiger grass) to replenish your skin’s moisture barrier and pro-retinol to visibly reduce wrinkles. It’s been allergy tested and is completely free of potentially irritating parabens, dyes and fragrance, plus it’s non-comedogenic so it won’t clog your pores.

Pair it with…

Look for a soothing cleansing milk or cream that’s specifically formulated for sensitive skin, and then add a hydrating, firming serum that won’t irritate. Pat the skin around your eyes with a barrier-repairing cream specifically formulated for the delicate eye area.

Your buys: L’Oréal Paris Fine Flowers Cleansing Milk, L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Hydrating Smoothing Serum and L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Cicacream Eye Cream.

With your best anti-aging moisturizer and an arsenal of skincare products designed to treat your skin’s specific needs, you’ll look and feel like your best self each and every day.
