When it comes to caring for your skin, we know just how much your needs can change over the years. Let’s just say, we certainly don’t perform the same routine today that we did when we were in our teens (and if you do, that’s a whole other blog post, honey). Skincare needs shift and change just like we do, and finding products that will meet your current needs is always crucial to having the right routine locked down. From cleansers to facial oils, we’re diving deep into what the ultimate skincare routine for ladies in their 50’s looks like!
Use nothing but the gentlest cleansers to start off your skincare routine.
As we age, lack of moisture in our skin can become a concern. Without adequate hydration, our skin can look and feel parched and, not to mention, not so youthful.
This is why starting off your skincare routine with a cleanser that doesn’t strip your pores is so important. Many facial cleansing products out there use harsh acids and astringents to get rid of excess oil. This is troublesome at any age, but especially for mature and aging skin that is often more delicate.
To be sure this doesn’t happen, we recommend reaching for a gentle foaming cleanser like BBE’s Peppermint Tea Tree Face Wash. It feels super soothing thanks to (you guessed it) glorious peppermint that will keep your pores feeling baby smooth.
Reach for toners that infuse moisture into the skin and diminish fine lines & wrinkles.
One step in our skincare routines that we think is totally underrated has to be applying toner. Toner tightens your pores and preps your skin for moisturizer like no other product can. And when it comes to keeping your skin looking its best, BBE’s Youth Restoration Bakuchiol Face Toner is where it’s at.
This gentle retinol alternative is a powerhouse at diminishing fine lines and helping you achieve plumper, firmer looking skin. What’s more, it is safe for even the most sensitive of skin types. Yet another reason why mature skin loves this ingredient! Simply spritz a bit after you’ve cleansed, wait a few seconds for it to dry, and you’re ready for step 3 in your beauty regimen!
Never, ever skip serum.
When it comes to fighting signs of aging and ensuring your skin is hydrated properly, serum is crucial.
You might think you don’t need a serum if you’re using a rich moisturizer, but the truth is that this extra step in your skincare routine will produce major results. Serums are loaded with more concentrated doses of the ingredients you want to reap the benefits of. This is part of the reason why you only need a few drops of it when applying. And when it comes to mature skin, adding a serum into your routine can make all the difference in keeping your skin hydrated in the long run.
For women in their 50’s, we recommend following up your toner with BBE’s Youth Restoration Bakuchiol face serum. This silky serum helps improve skin's brightness, tone, and texture while minimizing pores and diminishing fine lines. It's perfect for helping to achieve firmer, plump-looking skin using some of nature's best ingredients (think hyaluronic acid and the antioxidant-packed bilberry fruit extract!). It fights wrinkles, fine lines, evens out your skin tone, and can even ease acne if you still deal with the occasional breakout.
Not all moisturizers are created equal. Pick one that will keep your skin youthful & healthy.
Of course, the Bakuchiol serum we mentioned above pairs *perfectly* with BBE’s Youth Restoration Bakuchiol face moisturizer. It is ultra lightweight, so you won’t ever feel like you have a ton of products on your face after performing your skincare routine. Plus, it includes the moisturizing superhero that is hyaluronic acid so you can be sure fine lines & wrinkles don’t stand a chance.
And if for any reason Bakuchiol isn’t your thing, don’t worry, girlfriend. We have to give a shoutout to our tried and true Anti-Aging Face Cream that so many love. It contains nourishing jojoba oil that is loaded with Vitamins E and B, which are essential to helping you fight off damage from those pesky free radicals. What’s more, we added calming aloe vera to this formula that can help soothe any type of skin irritations. On top of all that, this option is safe for girls of all ages and skin types!
Finish off with a facial oil that will lock in all those amazing ingredients.
This next step isn’t obligatory, but will have you waking up with youthful, plump, and glowing skin in the morning – we promise!
Adding a facial oil to your nighttime skincare routine especially is an amazing way to give our complexion an added boost of Vitamins and hydration. BBE’s Balance & Restore facial oil is brimming with antioxidants, never feels oily, and sinks effortlessly into the skin. You will love how easily this product revitalizes skin, and it is a perfect option for mature complexions in need of a little pick-me-up.
There you have it, gorgeous. A skincare routine all ladies in their 50’s can count on.
