Best Anti-Aging Skin Care Products for 50s

Have you been using the same skincare brands for decades? It’s time to update your regime with products that work for your skin as it is today.

In our 50s, hormones introduce all sorts of changes to the skin. Due to this, our skin can become quite dry, thin, and even sallow.

As our skin ages, we need to nourish it with richer, more emollient moisturisers and serums to hydrate, calm, and brighten the complexion.

We’ve done a round-up of the skincare you need to regain your glow. Presenting our best anti-aging skincare products for those in their 50s.

Hydration can start with the first step of your skincare routine! Treat your skin to the ultimate boost of nourishment with Medik8 Cream Cleanse. This velvety, thick cream cleanser is fortified with Shea Butter and natural Saponins to hydrate, balance, and refresh your complexion while also effortlessly dissolving makeup, impurities, and environmental pollutants. All skin types can use this cleanser, but sensitive, dry or mature skin will particularly love the extra hydration.

  • It’s important to not use anything abrasive or stripping on your skin. Opt for a gentle cleanser that removes the grime but leaves your face feeling soft and hydrated.

Nourish your skin and turn back the clock on aging skin with L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream. Using the powerful properties of the age-defying Immortelle Flower, this triple-action moisturiser minimises the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, improves elasticity and skin firmness, and delivers antioxidant protection against age-accelerating free radicals. Formulated to boost hydration levels and collagen production, this cream is perfect for aging and mature skin.

  • One of the toughest aspects of aging is seeing once-firm skin start to sag. Ensuring that your skin is properly hydrated with an effective moisturiser is a priority. But also, look for ingredients that boost collagen to add some fullness back to your skin.

Enriched with Vitamin B5, known to help with tissue repair, SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel replenishes nutrients the skin needs to feel smooth and appear young. This moisture-enhancing gel contains Hyaluronic Acid, the body’s natural hydrator, to bind moisture to the skin. Hydrating B5 Gel is recommended for use with Vitamin C treatments and will help maximise the benefits of your daily moisturizer. Especially recommended for dry, delicate, or dull skin.

  • Adding a morning serum to your anti-aging skincare routine is a must. The light texture of serums make them ideal for layering underneath your moisturiser or makeup. And serums offer the added bonus of preventing free radical damage throughout the day.

Cosmedix Opti Crystal Liquid Crystal Eye Serum is the perfect perk-up for eyes plagued by loss of volume and fine lines. Infused with Alpha-Lipoic Acid, this lightweight serum contains potent antioxidants that protect the delicate eye area from environmental damage whilst promoting the skin’s collagen and elastin reserves.

  • Your eyes deserve some attention too! The small, delicate under-eye area consists of especially thin skin that needs special treatment. Eye creams are formulated to target specific concerns like puffiness, fine lines, and dark circles.

Perfect for morning or evening use, Aspect Hydrating Mask not only provides much-needed hydration but also ensures moisture is locked in. Hyaluronic Acid is teamed with a cocktail of Olive Oil, Sunflower Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Shea Butter to strengthen and reinforce the skin, preventing moisture loss and keeping skin soft and supple. Use 1 to 2 times a week for maximum benefits. For extremely dry skin, leave on overnight or wear as a daytime moisturiser.

  • A face mask is an excellent way to add extra hydration and nutrients to your complexion. The concentrated, focussed treatment means you’re likely to see fast results.

Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair keeps skin healthy, balanced, and calm while stimulating cell turnover to leave you with fresh, youthful skin in the morning. Formulated with Microencapsulated Retinol, the treatment smooths wrinkles and fine lines while stimulating cell turnover, keeping skin fresh and youthful. As Retinol does increase the skin’s sensitivity, remember to use the treatment only at night and use a daily SPF.

  • As our skin ages and becomes thinner, it more easily absorbs ingredients that can potentially irritate the skin. Look for a night treatment that has Retinol in a lower dose (0.5% and under) to be gentle on your skin.
