Mature Skin Care – 10 Simple Steps to a Complexion to Be Proud of At 60

By Carol Engelmann

Any woman can have a lovely complexion at any age. You can’t buy it, it’s not free but you can find out how to have a perfect skin too. 10 simple steps to getting a complexion that other women would die for. For these 10 simple steps you need only 10 minutes per day. What’s important is every day, or do you think that lovely celebrities skip the night cream when its late!

Learn how to put your skin in the best light. Diminish, reduce or get rid of imperfections. Improve, pamper and protect. It’s not about how much you spend but what you know about mature skin care, anti aging products and using them to achieve a complexion to be proud of. Here’s how…

Deep Cleanse

To remove impurities and dead cells deep cleanse every night. Skin is in repair mode at night and night cream works better on skin without debris. Cleanse in the morning again with a gentle, calming cleanser to prepare skin for make up. Never, never leave your make up on overnight. Think, it could age you one week every time. Cured?


Encourage fresh new skin by exfoliating regularly. Even dry skin will benefit from gentle exfoliating once per week. Skin prone to enlarged pores around mouth and nose will need gently exfoliating 2 or even 3 times per week. Deeply cleansed pores gradually become finer and less noticeable, make up looks smoother. Makes sense doesn’t it?

Show Your Skin some Gratitude

Treat your skin to a 15 minute relaxing, rejuvenating mask once per week. It’s better if you relax but watching your favorite programme is better than dropping the treatment. A calming mask works wonders for flushed sensitive skin reducing redness and irritation. The results get better every time. To really work on enlarged pores choose a deep cleansing mask and use only on the areas around the nose and mouth. You will soon notice that your make up doesn’t settle in the pores like it used to. This kind of mask really works if you use it often enough.


Nourish your skin with anti aging day and night creams or serums, necessities for mature skin care. These are packed full with anti oxidants, vitamins and ingredients that nudge the collagen production and skin cell renewal into action. The appearance of skin can be improved tremendously by cleansing, exfoliating and then nourishing. When skin cells are fresh, hydrated and invigorated they look firm and supple. Simple isn’t it?


Protect your skin especially in winter. When it’s cold we always wear gloves to stop our hands getting chapped, red, and rough. What about the skin on our face? Never go out without least a protective layer of moisturizer on your face. You can even consider make up as extra protection for the skin in cold weather. The elements deal harshly with mature skin. If you walk, ride or work outside a lot, choose a heavier cream to protect and avoid thickening of skin and redness.

Moisturize, Moisturize

Skin’s suppleness is the result of sufficient moisture inside and out. Try to drink 8 glasses of water per day. It is the least expensive anti aging treatment and good for the whole body too. Coffee and alcohol dehydrate. So try to drink a glass of water instead sometimes. Don’t underestimate how crucial this is to mature skin care, to keep it soft and supple. Use a good anti aging moisturizer in the morning and again during the day when you freshen your make up.

Learn to cheat the tiny lines and wrinkles

Sweep away tiny lines and wrinkles in seconds. This magic comes in a precision applicator to target wrinkles, filling and sealing in moments. It requires a little practice to get it just right and then it lasts all day. A must have for every mature woman. Stunning, simple and need not be expensive. How good does it get?


Weave some magic with under eye concealer even if you think you don’t have dark circles. A yellowy based concealer applied lightly under eyes, at the outer corners and inner corners at the side of the nose brightens the whole face. With the right colours and techniques it is possible to successfully cover even the darkest of shadows. Try it and you will be amazed.

Foundation make up

Your very best friend in your mature skin care regime is the right foundation make up, when you find it. Foundation make up for mature skin is available in fluid, cream, mousse and compact forms. Fluid is fine for quick application but usually doesn’t offer the coverage that we need. A cream or mousse will cover redness and last longer. Mousse is wonderful because it disguises enlarged pores and tiny wrinkles. It needs a little practice to get right but is worth every moment invested.

Lipstick and Blusher

Youthful sparkle comes from clever choice of lipstick and blusher. Dark lipstick is harsh and makes teeth look less than white. Go for softer pinks with a creamy, moisturized texture. Use a lip brush to trace very slightly outside the natural lip line and add a dab of gloss in the centre of the bottom lip. Then smile and whisk blusher high over your cheeks… perfect.

Your skin will respond with the dewy glow you thought was gone forever. All you have to do is make these steps part of your daily regime like cleaning your teeth.

Stay on the project, be aware of new tips and techniques that could solve your problem. New ideas fit into a ten minute routine in no time! And lastly, paying attention to a balanced diet and a little exercise too, means living our lives longer and lovelier!
