Skin-Care Must-Haves for Women Over 50

Here are the best skin-care products to maintain healthy, glowing skin if you’re over 50.

Every new season and year, it’s important to take stock of your skin and its needs—especially the skin care you’re using to treat your skin. This is true at any age, but it’s important to pick skin-care products that target your specific skin concerns, including the best anti-aging products. For the over-50 set, your needs often include maintaining a glowing and vibrant complexion—one that feels smooth and plumped and reflects the luminosity and life you feel on the inside.

Here are a few skin-care tips, products and ideas to ensure that you’re making the most of your skin-care routine and skin-care products and celebrating how you look and feel.

The Good Stuff

The benefits of aging are many but are often forgotten or left unsaid thanks to a preoccupation with what’s new and young. The good news is that by age 50, you know yourself so well—gone are the self-doubts and shyness of decades past. You have a firm grasp on your passions, and you know that the people who are in your life are likely the ones you can count on. It’s a time to embrace new things and routines in a way that may have scared you earlier on. It’s a confidence you can count on. You want skin care you can count on too. With all that vivacious life, it would be a shame if your beauty routine didn’t make you feel the same way. And, lucky for you, reaching your 50s often means reaching a point where your skin-care goals are much simpler and more attainable. You need a skin-care routine that fits your lifestyle, age and concerns—one that works but also one that relies on proven ingredients and trusted science.

The Skin Stuff

It would be a lie to say your skin has stayed the same. It hasn’t—but that’s okay. Whether hormonal changes have impacted your skin, sun damage has come to the surface or you just find yourself seeing new lines and wrinkles that weren’t there before, your skin changes from year to year and from season to season no matter your age. The bright side—literally—is that there are easy ways to make your complexion look its best with just a few anti-aging skin-care picks. And taking care of your skin is the best way to make sure your joie de vivre shows up every time you smile. Focus on treating and moisturizing and you’ll find your skin starts to recapture its youthful glow.

The Skin-Care Routine

There are many products you can add to your skin-care routine to make yourself look as good as you feel, but there are three steps that are musts: treating, moisturizing and repairing.

  • Treating

Let’s be honest: Having skin concerns as you age is a real thing. Whether you’re trying to soften fine lines, combat sun spots or improve skin texture, there’s likely an issue you want to correct with your anti-aging products. The good news is L’Oréal Paris’ Cell Renewal line can treat all of your skin-care concerns. All the skin-care products help to reveal new skin while sloughing off dead and damaged cells. Use the day cream and night cream as part of your daily treatment, and make sure to incorporate L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Golden Serum, which is lightweight and immediately illuminates your skin while offering long-term benefits like increased hydration and firmer and plumper skin.

  • Moisturizing

The key to luminous, youthful-looking skin? Moisture. It’s no surprise that a dewy complexion is often the result of plenty of hydration and having the right anti-aging products in your skin-care routine. A plumped visage often goes hand in hand with a healthy visage. But it’s also a good idea to incorporate a moisturizer that is targeted to your skin—for example, an anti-aging cream. That’s why L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer is key. It’s a product you can use daily. Not only does it include heavy-hitting ingredients like peony extract (an antioxidant) and LHA (for exfoliating) but it also stimulates cell renewal and, as the name suggests, gives you that rosy pink tone synonymous with plump, youthful skin. For day, try the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Day Cream. It provides plenty of hydration in the form of glycerin while using LHA to help stimulate cell renewal and antioxidants to help prevent damage from life’s daily stressors.

  • Repairing

As mentioned above, moisturizing is key—not only to prevent dehydration in your skin but also to ensure that your skin barrier is strong enough to protect your skin from outside irritants. This is where a facial oil or balm comes into your skin-care routine. L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Multi-Purpose Honey Balm, a silky balm for mature, very dry skin, includes manuka honey and nurturing oils that strengthen the skin barrier at the same time as they nourish and moisturize. Plus, you can count on this product to help even more with cell turnover, resulting in fresh, supple skin.
