Age brings about several changes to skin, including the appearance of wrinkles and other age-related blemishes, loss of elasticity, a shift in tone and texture, and more. Makeup’s adhesion to skin also evolves. So, even if you have applied your makeup the same way since college, there are a few things to be mindful of as you age. And no matter your age, these tips will help you feel confident and beautiful.
A good skin care routine is vital to perfect makeup application, and the best way to maintain the look, feel, and overall health of skin as you age is to keep it well-hydrated. As you get older, skin’s ability to hold on to moisture decreases, so it is best to use a thick moisturizer before putting on makeup. It helps keep skin looking supple and prevents skin care products from clogging fine lines.
Make sure the moisturizer you choose contains elements that hydrate, revitalize, and mend skin, such as glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and ceramides. In addition, everyone should use a moisturizer with sun protection factor, regardless of age or skin type.
