The beauty world is ripe with ointments and potions, but knowing how to pinpoint the best anti-aging products for mature skin can take a bit of trial and error. Fret not! We’ve made the task easier for you by highlighting some of our all-time favorites.
From silky anti-aging serums to luxurious creams to retinol, we’re on a mission to help you smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles, tackle dark spots, boost hydration, and revel in a complexion that glows.
Gentle Retinol Cream
Shop IT: Hello Results Wrinkle-Reducing Daily Retinol Serum-in-Cream
We argue that it’s never too late to add retinol to your regimen. This anti-aging ingredient—a key player when it comes to skincare for mature skin—helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and visibly improves firmness.
Our formula features a blend of free and encapsulated retinol, which helps balance the anti-aging power of a retinol serum with soothing ingredients such as vitamins B5 and E.
Shop IT: Bye Bye Dullness Vitamin C Serum
Free radicals are a real drag when it comes to keeping our skin looking youthful. Long story short: They can expedite signs of aging, making us appear older than our actual years. Incorporating antioxidants, such as vitamin C, into your skincare routine can help.
Bye Bye Dullness Vitamin C Serum uses the L-ascorbic acid version of vitamin C in its formulation. In addition to defending skin from free radicals, it helps boost radiance while nourishing your skin.
Shop IT: Bye Bye Serums Hyaluronic Acid
Those laugh lines are well-earned and represent good times, but no biggie if you want to minimize their appearance. Cue hyaluronic acid, a humectant that can help visibly smooth skin for a plump, youthful appearance.
As an added bonus, you can even layer this silky serum underneath your favorite cream for improved hydration. Speaking of...
Hydrating Anti-Aging Cream
Shop IT: Confidence in a Cream Hydrating Moisturizer
Figuring out how to combat dry skin is a must when it comes to skincare for mature skin. Confidence in a Cream Hydrating Moisturizer moisturizes while also targeting other common anti-aging concerns. It helps reduce the look of fine lines and large pores, visibly brightens, and creates a smoother appearance.
We suggest pairing it with Confidence in an Eye Cream. This formula helps visibly color-correct dark circles while restoring the look of firmness and smoothness around your delicate eye area.
Luxe Neck Cream
Shop IT: Confidence in a Neck Cream Moisturizer
As we get older, our necks begin to show signs of aging, such as sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. It’s important to tend to this area, as well. A luxurious neck cream can lend to a more youthful appearance.
We like to think of Confidence in a Neck Cream Moisturizer as shapewear for your neck! It reduces the appearance of lines and creates the look of smoother and firmer skin on your neck, décolleté, and chest.
A Gentle Exfoliator
Shop IT: Hello Results Baby-Smooth Glycolic Peel + Caring Oil
As we get older, our skin surface cell turnover begins to wane. Incorporating an exfoliating product into your regimen can help reveal skin that looks radiant and feels baby-smooth. Hello Results Baby-Smooth Glycolic Peel + Caring Oil is a supremely gentle peel suitable for daily use—even if your skin’s sensitive.
For best practice, alternate it in the evenings with your retinol.
Shop IT: CC+ Cream with SPF 50+
If you’re shopping for makeup for mature skin, you’ll find a winner in IT Cosmetics’ best-selling* CC+ Cream with SPF 50+. Packed with SPF 50+ physical sunscreen, this multitasking foundation improves hydration, diffuses skin imperfections, and delivers flawless-looking coverage without feeling or looking heavy. Sunscreen is one of the best anti-aging ingredients available, and it’s wise to wear it no matter your age!
We recommend using it with our game-changing under-eye concealer, Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer. One dot of this highly pigmented product is all you need to camouflage dark circles. Plus, the formula features anti-aging skincare ingredients like peptides, vitamins, hydrolyzed collagen, and hyaluronic acid.
Complexion-Perfecting Setting Powder
Shop IT: Bye Bye Pores Pressed Setting Powder
After applying your foundation and concealer, it’s a good idea to set your makeup in place with a setting powder. Think of it as a simple investment of your time, and a way to further enhance your complexion.
Bye Bye Pores Pressed Setting Powder is one of the best makeup finds for mature skin for a few key reasons. For starters, it instantly blurs the look of pores and imperfections for more youthful-looking skin. It’s also formulated with skin-loving silk, hydrolyzed collagen, and antioxidants for some extra anti-aging TLC.
