Best Face Creams for Older Skin

UV Elements Tinted Broad-Spectrum SPF 44 (EltaMD)

I recommend this product since it’s not only helpful to protect the skin from UV rays (SPF 44) but also it has moisturizing effect (hyaluronic acid). The best thing I love, it comes with a beautiful board-universal tint so it can help blur fine lines, abnormal darker /lighter pigmentation, and blotchiness.

It’s practical and easy to spread (oil-free). Plus it’s OK to use for sensitive skin, so is for older and mature skin. And it’s water resistant (40 minutes).

The price is a bit expensive for sunscreen (about $34), but it’s worth a try. Just apply it one pump for the neck, one pump for the face, and (if necessary) one pump applied on the back of your hands.

Intellishade original SPF 45 (Revision Skincare)

If you’re looking for all-in-one sunscreen with anti-aging formula, this product is a good choice to start, though it costs a fortune (about $75).

It’s a tinted sunscreen, protecting your skin from UV rays while perfecting it. Its peptide ingredient would help stimulate and improve your skin collagen production. Also, it has vitamin C (antioxidants) to help ease aging spots like fine lines.

But be careful! Make sure to buy original product since there are also fake products of this. A tip, look carefully at its packaging!

Whatever your choice, sunscreen for older skin should be:

  1. Formulated with broad spectrum protection so it can protect the skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
  2. Water resistant. This is particularly important if you’re going for outdoor activities.
  3. Cream-based product to cover the skin evenly. On the other hand, avoid spray-based sunscreen!
  4. SPF at least 30 or higher.

And don’t rely only on sunscreen! It’s also important to have other best practices for more extra protection from UV rays. For examples — use sunglasses, hats, and protective clothing (if possible)!
