10 Beauty Essentials for Mature Skin
Aging skin is a fact of life, but with the right beauty essentials in your routine we can battle the negative effects that age causes to our skin. Some common effects of aging our skin include the loss of elasticity, increased dryness, puffy eyes, dark circles, and line and wrinkles. I am sharing 10 beauty essentials for your beauty routine for aging skin.
A beauty routine with the right beauty products is essential to fighting fine lines, wrinkles, dry skin, and loss of elasticity and moisture. Here are 10 beauty essentials to add to your routine.
Daily pollutants, makeup, and excess oil and bacteria can cause our skin to look dull, break-out, and even cause wrinkles. It’s important to use a gentle cleanser daily to remove makeup and excess oil from your face.
Try the Kate Somerville Gentle Daily Wash cleanser. This delicate gel cleanser calms and conditions skin with rich botanicals and subtle notes of lavender.
Exfoliating is key for any beauty routine, but especially for mature or aging skin. Use an exfoliator to promote surface cell turnover to instantly unveil skin that’s brighter, more vibrant and even-toned.
I love the The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. This 10-minute, exfoliating facial uses a combined 30-percent AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and two-percent BHA (beta hydroxy acid) to help fight visible blemishes and improve the look of skin texture and radiance.
A serum has a high concentration of vitamins to nourish your skin. It will make your moisturizer more effective, improving your skin over time. Apply a serum before your moisturizer at night for fresh skin in the morning.
The Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum is a blend of Okinawa red algae and hyaluronic acid to sooth and firm skin in need of hydration. t contains an antiaging complex of sonically extracted whole plant green tea, rice bran oil, and red algae—a trio of moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients that helps fight free radicals that age the skin.

5. Targeted Eye Cream
The skin around the eye area is especially sensitive and thinner, causing it to be more prone to fine lines, or crow’s feet. As we get older, under-eye bags and dark circles can also become more pronounced. A targeted eye cream is essential to your beauty routine to maintain elasticity and firmness and reduce puffiness around the eye area.
I love the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. It’s a lightweight, refreshing eye cream that smooths fine lines with a 26-hour burst of moisture, boosts elasticity, and increases the resilience of the skin for flawless makeup application.
6. Lip Mask
Lips are a frequently neglected area of our face. The last of elasticity and collagen in the lips can lead to thinning, dry lips. A nourishing overnight lip mask soothes and moisturizes while you sleep for smoother and more supple lips.
The Laneage Lip Sleeping Mask has a softening balm texture that closely adheres to lips for quick absorption. This mask is enriched with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture and active ingredients. A generous layer of this soothing mask at bedtime helps reduce flakiness so you can wake up to lips that feel refreshed, supple, and soft to the touch.
A retinol is important for mature and aging skin. Retinol’s are proven effective in fighting wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin tone and should be in any beauty routine, especially if you consider yourself to have aging skin.
I really like Paula’s Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment Lotion. The light lotion formula is supplemented with nourishing licorice extract, oat extract and other soothing plant extracts to calm skin and ease redness, allowing your skin to look and feel younger, firmer and more radiant.
8. Neck Cream
The neck is a highly neglected area, but just as prone to wrinkles and sagging due to the thinner and more delicate skin in this area. You should treat your neck as your face, and use a targeted anti-aging cream for the neck area.
The StriVectin-TL™ Tightening Neck Cream Plus combines everything you need for a youthful-looking neck and décolletage. This highly-rated neck cream tightens and firms the neck and corrects the look of uneven tone and texture on the décolletage while smoothing horizontal neck lines. It also helps improve elasticity and provides lift, smoothes crepey skin and helps even skin tone.
With so many different types of masks, you can find one for any of your skin needs. I like to use a firming treatment mask to tighten and lift for more youthful-looking skin.
GLAMGLOW GRAVITYMUD™ Firming Treatment Mask is a mud-based, peel-off face mask designed to tighten the appearance of skin. Your skin will be left with a defined and radiant look.
There’s is nothing better for aging skin than to prevent wrinkles to begin with. The biggest cause of damaged, wrinkle skin is exposure to the sun. A daily sunscreen every morning will significantly prevent wrinkles and premature aging.
I am really loving the brand Supergoop! Try the Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40. This sunscreen is a weightless, colorless, scentless, oil-free formula for your face that smoothes the appearance of pores. I use this under my makeup as a primer and it helps to grip my makeup in place.
