As we age our skin needs change too, so what we used to do when we were 30 might not be enough to provide proper hydration and care. This 7-Step routine for mature skin types will help you maintain a healthy complexion.
Wrinkles and fine lines are part of aging, and it is a process that we need to embrace. But your skin texture can change and it can be better by adding a bit of extra hydration and some products. It is by no means necessary to pack your routine with tons of serums and face creams.
7-Step routine for mature skin types
What a mature skin essentially needs is hydration, because wrinkles and fine lines are more noticeable in drier skin, and mature skins tend to lack proper hydration.
Step 1: Cleanse
Start your routine by using a gentle cleanser to get rid of surface grime and to unclog your pores. Make sure your cleanser is hydrating so it does not strip your skin and as a consequence exacerbate the appearance of wrinkles.
Step 2: Treat
To brighten your skin, even out your skin tone and texture, go for a hyaluronic acid-infused antiaging moisturizer.
Step 3: Even out your skin tone
Step 4: Adress your undereye skin
The skin around our eyes is very thin and it tends to wrinkle, try using a hydrating eye cream to improve the appearance of fine lines.
Step 5: Face masks
Incorporate hydra-boosting face masks to plump your complexion and give your skin an extra glow.
Step 7: Retinol
Retinol is one of the best options to combat the signs of aging. It increases collagen production, improves the skin's texture and tone, and gives back some elasticity to your skin.
Step 7: SPF
We have stated this countless times, but SPF is your best anti-aging product. It is important to apply sunscreen every day all year round.
