What face cream should you be using for your age?

Everyone’s skin is unique, but as we age our skin changes too. Our skin experts recommend the best moisturisers for every decade.


Skincare in your 20s

Choose: Olay Essentials Complete Care Multi-Radiance
“Hydration is essential for smooth, glowing, healthy-looking skin, whilst UV protection is the single most important thing anyone can do to keep their skin looking younger,” says celebrity facialist and Olay ambassador Anastasia Achilleos. “Applying moisturiser morning and evening should be a key part of your daily skincare routine – even in your 20s.”

Skincare in your 30s

Choose: Olay Total Effects Feather Weight Moisturiser
“Most women in their 30s find some signs of dehydration, texture changes and wrinkles are starting to appear. When you start to see the first signs of ageing, I would recommend reaching for the best-selling Olay Total Effects,” says Olay Principal Scientist Dr Sian Morris. With SPF 15 it also starts to prevent future signs of ageing.

Skincare in your 40s

Choose: Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Cream SPF15
As your skin ages, you can usually take a richer cream than in your 20s and 30s, and this easily absorbed anti-wrinkle and lifting moisturiser is just the ticket – as well as being fuss-free and, of course, containing UV protection to prevent further damage.

Skincare in your 50s

Choose: Olay Regenerist 3-Point Moisturiser SPF30
“UV protection is the single most important thing anyone can do to help their skin look younger,” says Dr Sian Morris. “Look for a cream that’s both intensively hydrating and offers UV protection, meaning that it offers all the pleasure of a cosmetic product along with high UV protection.”

Skincare in your 60s

Choose: Olay Regenerist Age-Defying Kit
“Olay Regenerist delivers significant, measurable and noticeable anti-ageing benefits – perfect for women in their 50s,” says Beauty Recommended editor Annabel Jones. “UV protection is the single most important thing anyone can do to help their skin look younger, and Olay Regenerist is designed to hydrate and fight the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while helping protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB exposure.”

Skincare in your 70s and beyond

Choose: Olay Regenerist CC Complexion Corrector
You probably have your favourite creams by now, but have you discovered CC Cream yet? It’s good for all ages, and especially older skin. Because while foundation and powder can highlight lines and wrinkles, CC Cream just gives a natural glow. It also nourishes the skin and hides age spots. “It’s a hard-working combination of SPF15 moisturiser, anti-ageing serum and sheer foundation, so that skin is perfected both now and over time,” says Annabel Jones.?

I have had a dry skin problem around the nostrils and forehead for at least 15 years. Never found a good cream to sort it.... till now. I'm ecstatic!!! No more dry skin in those areas thanks to Olay firm and lift. Thank you Olay. After years of spending a fortune on all sorts, I finally gave you a go. Should have listened to mother, she's been using olay since it first came out. She's in her 80's now and her skin is lovely for her age. See? Mother always knows best!!!
