If you are over 50, you have gracefully entered the “mature skin” stage of life. What a beautiful opportunity to be thankful for what your skin has done for you up until this point and possibly reinvent the way you take care of it! Your skin’s job has been to protect you by providing a barrier to the outside damage we come up against every day: pollution, free radicals, and UV rays, just to name a few.
As we come up against these and live our lives, a few things inevitably happen. As collagen breaks down, our skin loses elastin, and as a result is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Our skin also loses moisture faster, and requires more help to stay hydrated enough to do its job properly.
Here’s our 4 flawless skin tips to keep your skin radiant and dewy at any age!
Exfoliating a couple of times every week after you cleanse will ensure that your skin can absorb any serums or creams you put on it. It will also reveal a smoother, more radiant complexion! You can exfoliate with a scrub, that physically removes dead skin cells, or with a chemical exfoliator, like our Skin Refining Enzyme Peel. This peel uses enzymes to promote the peeling process and reveal smoother skin.
Hydrate both inside and out!
If we could only choose one tip for taking care of aging skin, this would be it. Dry skin is much quicker to develop fine lines, wrinkles, and a dull complexion. Keep it plump and dewy by making sure to drink plenty of water. Lock moisture in with a luxurious cream, like our Rich Recovery Cream. Ingredients such as squalene, shea butter, and macadamia nut oil will lock in hydration and protect your skin all day long. Bonus: it protects from UV rays!
Be gentle with your eyes.
The skin around your eyes is already thinner and more delicate than the rest of your face and tends to develop fine lines first. Did you know that your eyes and lips are the first places to show signs of dehydration because the skin is thinner? Drink plenty of water to slow the signs of aging around these areas! Another great way to treat fine lines around the eyes is with a product containing hydrating ingredients such as vitamin E, natural oils, and hyaluronic acid. Our Tricare Eye Cream helps to smooth, hydrate and reverse the signs of aging.
Maximize sleep recovery.
Our skin is very active at night when it’s in its most relaxed state. Serums and moisture are more easily absorbed into the skin at night. Get the most out of your skin’s sleep recovery with products that are extra targeted to your skin’s needs. Look for products with hyaluronic acid and squalene, as well as a rich moisturizer. Our Night Recovery Serum is an excellent choice.
A consistent, high-quality skincare routine will not only keep your skin looking and feeling its best, but it also creates a smooth base for beautiful makeup!
