Start your mature skincare journey by investing in these affordable moisturisers

Yes, you still need a moisturiser.

Your skin is constantly changing throughout your life, and it can be hard to keep updating your skincare routine.

As you mature, Adore Beauty cites three changes you will notice.

The rate your skin can exfoliate, and turnover cells will slow (which is why it’s essential to invest in a chemical exfoliator), as will your natural oil and sebum production (so, fewer pimples).

Finally, your skin’s collagen and structural proteins will harden and take longer to make.

Because your skin is making fewer oils, you’ll need a moisturiser more than ever to replenish and hydrate.

However, you can’t rely on a moisturiser to do all the work.

A chemical exfoliator will take you even closer to your skin goals, as will investing in serums filled with Vitamin A, Retinol, Alpha-Hydroxy Acids, and Vitamin C.

Even though it can sound like a lot navigating the world of serums, moisturisers are more straightforward and don’t have to be complicated – as long as it hydrates, it’s doing its job.

Here are nine products by renowned brands that will change your mature skin.
