As we age, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid levels decrease. The density of the skin changes and its hydration diminishes. This cutaneous aging causes the appearance of wrinkles. Skin loses its firmness and radiance. The oval of the face becomes slack and the eye contour becomes wrinkled. To slow down this process and take care of your mature skin, you need to give it special attention. Moisturizing, nourishing and stimulating cell renewal are the key words in your new anti-aging skin care routine. At what age do we talk about mature skin? What beauty steps should you take to care for mature skin? Here are our tips for preserving the beauty of your skin after 50.
What is the age for mature skin?
There is no specific age at which we talk about mature skin? Skin aging, marked by a deficit in hyaluronic acid and collagen and a slowdown in cell renewal, varies from person to person. There are many factors that come into play. A woman's skin, generally thinner than a man's skin, will be marked earlier by wrinkles and the effects of aging. Sun, tobacco, pollution, lack of sleep and hormonal deficiencies can also accelerate skin aging. In general, it is customary to speak of mature skin from the age of 50, the age that corresponds more or less to the onset of menopause.
What beauty routine to take care of mature skin?
Taking care of mature skin means adopting a ritual that targets the hydration of the epidermis, the protection of the skin barrier and cellular renewal. Let's see in detail what this routine for mature skin looks like.
Your mature skin routine begins with cleansing your face and neck.This beauty routine should be accompanied by gentle formulas that strengthen the skin barrier and preserve your skin's moisture. Depending on your preference, you can choose a micellar water, a cleansing milk or a cleansing foam. Not forgetting the tonic lotion that removes the remaining impurities from the skin and prepares it to receive the anti-aging care: the serum and the cream.
Perfectly cleansed, your skin is more receptive to the anti-aging serum which helps reduce the effects of skin aging by boosting the effectiveness of your mature skin care product, whether it is a day or night treatment. Highly concentrated in powerful active ingredients, an anti-aging serum is used in very small quantities: 2 to 3 drops mixed with your usual dose of the skin care cream.
At this stage of your beauty routine, you should apply a facial care product specially formulated to nourish and/or moisturize mature skin. Prioritize an anti-aging cream rich in hyaluronic acid, retinol and vitamin C to promote cell renewal.
To combat skin aging and plump up the most fragile areas of the face, your mature skin routine will be more effective if you include a lip and eye contour cream. This targeted treatment fights against wrinkles and skin slackening to restore the beauty of your lips and the radiance of your eyes. A scrub followed by a smoothing mask is also part of the secrets of a successful mature skin routine.
At regular intervals, your skin needs to be exfoliated to activate microcirculation and boost cell renewal. This step prepares the skin for the application of subsequent treatments such as a mature skin mask for "thirsty" skin. The result? The oval of the face becomes firmer, the complexion rediscovers its radiance, fine lines and wrinkles fade.
Tips for beautiful skin after 50
To reinforce the action of anti-aging skin care, treat yourself to a few minutes of self-massage of the face and neck daily. Using your fingertips, make circular movements, moving down from the chin to the base of the neck. Continue the process, gently tapping the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and lips. To activate microcirculation, gently massage your face, starting from the chin towards the temples. Finish your massage with some facial exercises. Working the mimetic muscles contributes to the firmness of the facial skin and the reduction of expression lines.
Beyond the mature skin routine, certain rules and precautions can help you keep your skin looking good after 50. Starting with the right gestures to adopt in the sun. UVA, UVB, blue light and infrared rays cause premature skin aging, loss of radiance, increased wrinkles and even the appearance of brown spots. To maintain beautiful skin after age 50 without giving up the sun, don't hesitate to apply a sun care cream for the face, paying special attention to the eye contour and neck. Prefer sun care products composed of natural ingredients such as hyaluronic acid or retinol and high SPF protection.
