Essential Skincare Ingredients if You're Over 50

Retinoids and bakuchiol

Vitamin A derivative retinoids can alter gene expression, promoting skin cell turnover, eliminating blocked pores, boosting collagen synthesis, and lowering discoloration.

SPF 30+

Every day, wear an SPF of 30 or higher and choose sunscreens with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are "more effective at blocking UV rays."

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a potent humectant that helps keep skin moisturized and plump. This substance has the ability to retain 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an ideal choice for combating dryness and wrinkles.

Green tea

Green tea contains natural caffeine, which helps to reduce irritation, relieve redness, and de-puff, making it an excellent component for under-eye creams.


Peptides are amino acid chains that can aid in collagen formation and skin repair. They're a great option for smoothing out wrinkles, lightening dark spots, and enhancing overall skin texture.

Vitamin C

Kakadu plum is nature's Vitamin C powerhouse, long prized for its medicinal properties and strong antioxidants, with up to 55 times the Vitamin C content of oranges.

Hydrating oils

Oils like rose hip seed oil and sunflower seed oil can help hydrate and soften skin, which is important as we age because aged skin loses moisture naturally.

Glycolic acid

Glycolic acid and other AHAs work to enhance tone and texture by accelerating cell turnover and encouraging collagen formation to reduce UV damage and dark spots.
