Find the right moisturiser for your age

Find the right face cream for your age

Moisturiser is every woman’s number one skin must-have, but as you age your skin needs change. Here, our skincare experts make selecting the right face cream simple with their top recommended picks for every decade.


We all know moisturising is key to young looking skin, but picking the face cream that’s right for you and your lifestyle can be pretty confusing. Don’t worry; we’ve got your skin needs covered with our top picks for every age. 

Skincare in your 20s: Celebrity Facialist and Olay Ambassador, Anastasia Achilleos says, ‘Hydration is essential for smooth, glowing, healthy-looking skin, whilst UV protection is the single most important thing anyone can do to help their skin look younger. Applying moisturiser morning and evening should be a key part of your daily skincare routine – even in your 20s.’ For day, opt for something light yet hydrating with UV protection such as the Olay ESSENTIALS complete care SPF 30 day lotion RRP £7.72 and for night the Olay ESSENTIALS  Double Action Night Cream RRP £5.49.’

Skincare in your 30’s: Dr Sian Morris, Olay Principal Scientist says, ‘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 7x – which has a specifically designed moisturiser for both day and night.  Olay Total Effects 7x was developed to target seven signs of aging that are of most concern to women. The formula, fortified with vitamins and minerals including an exclusive VitaNiacin complex (Vitamin B3 (niacinamide), Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5), offers proven anti-ageing benefits. In addition, Total Effects 7x now also includes Green Tea Extract, a known anti-oxidant. Total Effects 7x Night, with Wheat Protein, has a firming action to help fight the signs of ageing as you sleep, making Total Effects 7x the smart choice for day to night skincare.’

Skincare in your 40’s: ‘UV protection is the single most important thing anyone can do to help their skin look younger, so look for a cream that’s both intensively hydrating and offers UV protection. Olay Regenerist SPF30 Flawless Skin Cream RRP £30.63 is a non-greasy, fast-absorbing moisturiser that helps firm the appearance of skin, whilst protecting it from UV damage, meaning that it offers all the pleasure of a cosmetic product along with high UV protection.’ comments, Dr Sian Morris, Olay Principal Scientist

I'm only 25 and have started on anti wrinkle creams.. after 3 children I feel my skin is nothing like it used to be. I use Olay anti wrinkle firm and plump cream works brilliantly but I need a good cream for around my eyes now as I always look like I have just been boxing :(
