Looking for healthy, radiant skin with a rosy glow? Take a look at our expert tips for adapting your beauty regimen in your 60s.
How does aging affect mature skin?
When we reach our 60s and beyond, our skin tends to suffer from a number of age-related concerns. These can range from cosmetic issues, including wrinkles, loss of radiance, and dark spots, to physical symptoms linked to the aging process, such as increased dryness. The epidermis becomes thinner as we age, reducing the skin’s ability to retain water. This results in pale, translucent skin that looks - and feels - drier and less elastic, as in the case of hollow cheeks or sagging around the mouth and chin area.
Skincare and makeup tips for a rosy glow
When looking to boost paler mature skin, combining small adjustments to your skincare routine can help impart a vibrant, healthy glow. Focusing on hydrating ingredients, can help restore radiance to mature skin. In addition to a daily moisturizer, facial massage can help stimulate circulation beneath the skin’s surface, improving blood flow and ‘waking up’ the complexion.
When it comes to makeup, less is more! Mature skin tends to be drier, so opt for a cream or oil-based blusher to give cheeks a rosy boost, as powder products can end up looking cakey. A small amount of highlighter or champagne-colored eyeshadow in the inner corner of the eyes and across the cheekbones will help to brighten the face. Finish with a light-reflecting lip-gloss or balm in a natural color, such as peach or rose, for a natural everyday look that radiates good health.
