Anti-Aging Skincare: Routine + Treatments - Geneo

With age comes wisdom — and wrinkles. As you get older, your skin naturally changes. The body produces less collagen and sebum, making the skin thinner and prone to wrinkles and dryness. Age spots, or lentigos, show up in areas exposed to sun damage and create an uneven skin tone.

There are many options available to keep skin looking its best for as long as possible. A daily at-home skincare regimen that’s supplemented with regular spa treatments is essential to maintaining healthy, aging skin. Professional treatments become increasingly important as your skin ages because they can provide the most advanced and effective anti-aging treatments.

Treating mature skin, whether for yourself or for your skincare clients, requires careful product consideration. It’s essential to select treatments and products that won’t cause damage or require a lot of downtime, as aging skin is slower to repair itself. This article will help you understand common concerns for mature skin and how to create the best anti-aging skincare routine.

Skincare for Aging Skin

As skin ages, it’s prone to wrinkles, age spots, dryness, rough texture, hyperpigmentation, and sagginess. Maintaining a high-quality skincare routine that changes with age is the best defense against these signs of aging.

Keep in mind that aging also affects the skin on the body, not just facial skin. Adding regular body treatments and products is an important part of an effective anti-aging skincare regimen.

Anti-Aging Skincare Routine

Following a daily anti-aging routine will slow down signs of aging and treat current skin conditions. It’s important to observe changes in the skin as it ages and adapt the routine to meet new needs.

Cleanser for Aging Skin

Mature skin needs a gentle cleanser that replenishes moisture rather than strips it away. Cream- or oil-based cleansers are great options. Stay away from cleansers designed to reduce acne or exfoliate the skin since those contain specialized ingredients that can be too harsh to use regularly on mature skin.

You can also try double-cleansing, which involves washing the face with an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser like micellar water. This is especially effective for makeup wearers, as makeup is lipophilic, meaning it’s dissolved with oil rather than water.

Toner for Aging Skin

Alcohol-free toner is the best option for aging skin, as alcohol can be overly drying. While toner is an optional step in a skincare routine, you can use it twice a day to help remove any dirt or impurities left behind by your cleanser. To boost the benefits of toner, look for one that contains skin-soothing ingredients such as green tea extract, aloe vera, or colloidal oatmeal.

Anti-Aging Treatments for Mature Skin Concerns

Many daily at-home treatments are available to treat mature skin issues such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture. When looking for serums and other treatments to use at home, keep these anti-aging ingredients in mind:

  • Retinyl Palmitate: A mild form of retinol found in its natural state, which helps even skin tone and reduces sun damage
  • Willow bark: A natural form of salicylic acid used to shed dead skin cells to help even out skin texture
  • Peptides – An amino acid that stimulates the body to produce more collagen
  • Hyaluronic acid – Excellent for hydration, which helps plump the skin and makes fine lines less noticeable
  • Vitamin C – Protects from free radicals and improves the look of wrinkles and uneven texture
  • Green tea extract – A quality antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that evens skin tone

Moisturizer for Aging Skin

As you get older, your body slows production of sebum, an oil needed to keep your skin moisturized and protected from friction. This is why your skin may have become drier and feel more sensitive than it used to. Even if you struggle with oiliness, it’s still important to keep skin moisturized to maintain a strong skin barrier and reduce signs of aging.

When choosing a moisturizer for mature skin, look for products labeled “noncomedogenic,” which means they won’t clog pores. We recommend selecting three moisturizers — a light option for daytime (bonus points if it has SPF 30+); a thicker, more intensive moisturizer for nighttime use; and one for your body.

Here are some of the best moisturizer ingredients for aging skin:

  • Ceramides: Strengthens the skin barrier to keep moisture from escaping
  • Hyaluronic acid: Can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, helping hydrate and plump the skin
  • Glycerin: Another powerhouse ingredient for deep hydration
  • Niacinamide: Great for improving hyperpigmentation such as age spots

Sunscreen for Aging Skin

Nothing ages your skin faster than unprotected UV exposure. To avoid further signs of aging, it’s essential to protect your skin from sun damage every day. Mature skin benefits from a sunscreen that is moisturizing and noncomedogenic, with an SPF of at least 30. It’s also best to choose a physical sunscreen rather than a chemical one, which can be harsh on your skin. Look for zinc or titanium oxide in the active ingredients list.

Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips

Here are additional tips to help care of aging skin:

  • Prevent further sun damage by protecting skin with sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher)
  • Make sure to cleanse skin thoroughly and exfoliate gently
  • Choose products with the right ingredients (e.g., ceramides, hyaluronic acid, mild retinols, vitamin C)
  • Keep your skin hydrated from the inside out by drinking plenty of water
  • Minimize pulling on the skin while cleansing or applying makeup or skincare products
