How to get glowing skin at 50

Mature skin has specific needs. It's less dense, less flexible, thinner and drier, so try these everyday anti-ageing tips for a beautiful, glowing face.

Always deep cleanse

The furrows of mature skin can collect impurities such as the daily environmental pollutants we come up against or make-up. These suffocate the skin, leading to oxydisation and an uneven texture. Even if you're not wearing make-up, it's essential to cleanse morning and evening. Rich textures, such as a cleansing oil, will add lipids to nourish and rebalance the weakened skin barrier. testtest

Choose the right routine

From serums to day creams, eye contour treatments to night creams, use beauty products that contain lipids and antioxidants, plus active ingredients that will help tackle wrinkles and blemishes. Oh, and don't forget an SPF of at least 30. Nourished, plumped and replenished, your skin will immediately glow. 

Treat yourself to a massage

Massage your face when applying your creams, using upward movements to relax facial muscles, fill out wrinkles and boost circulation. Facial massages improve the production of antioxidant molecules and boost oxygenation. The result? Deeper penetration of your cream's active ingredients followed by peachy, smooth skin. 

Hydration, hydration, hydration

Dehydrated skin is dull, rough and tired-looking. This is especially true for mature skin, because dehydration can exacerbate the signs of ageing that are already there. Drink at least 1.5 litres of water a day to help flush out toxins and hydrate the skin, so your face will appear softer and more supple. 

Eat your fruit and veg

Consumed as juice to boost nutritional intake, fruit and veg are the best route to glowing mature skin. Strawberries, oranges and peppers are rich in vitamin C, which helps to thicken the epidermis. Green leafy vegetables and almonds provide vitamin E, a natural source of retinol which is essential for healthy skin. And mango, pumpkin and tomato offer vitamin A, a powerful antioxidant.
