Makeup for Mature Skin Tips & Tricks
No matter how gracefully we age, our skin goes through changes as we get older. That's just a fact! The makeup routine you liked in your 20's and 30's may not work the same in your 40's, 50's and beyond.
Here are our top makeup tips for mature skin.
Take Care of the Skin First
Years of laughing, frowning, talking, and smiling means fine lines and wrinkles. And there's nothing wrong with that! It just means you have lived a full life and have the marks to show it. Older skin also tends to be drier as the hyaluronic acid produces less and less over the years.
To combat these natural signs of aging, you can get skin resurfacing treatments regularly and use rejuvenating skincare products. Laser resurfacing, microneedling, and chemical peels slough off the top layers of the epidermis to soften wrinkles and brighten the skin. To avoid downtime after procedures, use Oxygenetix Oxygenating Hydro-Matrix and Foundation to soothe, cool, and protect your compromised skin, and conceal signs of treatment.
Additionally, use an exfoliating product weekly to maintain an even skin tone and texture. Having a smooth canvas for your makeup will allow it to last longer and look better.
Choose the Right Foundation
In order to maintain beautiful, healthy skin as you age, it is important that your makeup routine supports your skin's health. Makeup is on your skin more than anything else and can do some damage if the wrong products are used.
Dani Kimiko Vincent, a celebrity makeup artist and founder of the beauty line Kimiko told Oprah magazine, "You want to look for a foundation that is hydrating and won't settle into fine lines."
Choose a foundation like Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation that doubles as skincare. Packed with skin-loving ingredients, Oxygenating Foundation is the ideal choice for mature skin that needs some extra love. On Oprah's lineup of "The 15 Best Foundations for Mature Skin", Oxygenating Foundation received Best for Sensitive Skin".
Use light layers to avoid cakiness
Less is more when wearing makeup, especially as we age. Wearing too much makeup can actually have the adverse effect and make the skin look weathered. To avoid cakiness start applying your foundation, bronzer, and blush in light layers. You can build upon them if you want more coverage or color, but it is much harder to take off once it is applied.
Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation is great for maturing skin since it won't sink into fine lines, and is buildable. Wait about 30 to 60 seconds in between applications and layer with a light tapping motion for the best results.
Avoid powder if at all possible. Powder on mature skin can accentuate texture and dry out the skin even more.
Many people use powder makeup to help their skin look more youthful. However, applying powder all over the face can actually age your skin faster. Powder can prevent your skin from breathing, and dry the skin which makes wrinkles worse.
Instead, use cream and liquid foundations, blushes, and bronzers! Get your Oxygenetix today for a youthful complexion and nourish your skin every day.
