The Hottest Skincare for Mature Skin


It’s a fact of life, as we age, so does our body’s ability to keep up with that radiant and line-free skin we took for granted in our 20s. While we can’t turn back the clock, there are some products that will help slow down our skin’s natural aging process and make us feel our best every day. Here is a breakdown of skincare essentials and some of our favourites.

Ask any dermatologist what the secret to anti-aging skin is and they will all say “Use sunscreen”. This is likely not new to you but it is worth reminding everyone of the importance on our quest for youthful skin. There is an array of choices so find one that suits your skin type and use it religiously, every day.

The next important step is to exfoliate regularly since our skin can’t replenish itself like it use to. Whether it is a physical exfoliant scrub or topical one, this will help brighten the look of your skin. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as glycolic, citric and lactic acid are all clinically proven chemical exfoliates.

The past 10 years have seen amazing advancements in some topical products to help try to replace collagen and reduce lines and dark spots. Vitamin A or Retinoids and Vitamin C can be found in so many great products at different price points making the choice simple and effective. Serums are the powerhouse here and you can find some for both your morning and nightime routine.

Replacing the moisture our cells lose as we age will help your skin look smoother and feel younger, especially in the winter months. The best will contain glycerine and hyaluronic acid, both of which bind with water to achieve their goal. Chose a formula that works for your skin type and remember, just because you’re not a teenager anymore doesn’t mean you can’t get acne from a formula that is too heavy for your skin.

Can we guarantee that following these steps daily will make you look like you did in 1999, not a chance! But we do know that they will help you look and feel your best and hopefully slow father time down for now. If you are undecided about which products are best for your skin type and lifestyle, experts who can help you choose what is right for you can be found in the St. Vital Centre retailers mentioned below.
