When deciding which CC creams to use for mature skin, Geller gravitates towards ones that utilize hyaluronic acid or sodium hyaluronate to repair and protect the skin barrier. “Less is more as we age, so this is a great substitute for foundation on those ‘no makeup’ makeup days,” she adds. “The moisturizing ingredients in your CC cream will ensure it won’t crease, crack, or settle into any fine lines or wrinkles.” According to Geller, CC cream should provide your skin with more benefits than a traditional foundation as it ages; a testament to the importance of the incorporation of ingredients that support healthy and beautiful mature skin.
For the best outcome, Geller recommends applying the product with the fingers and then blending outward and upward for an even complexion. “Ideally, it’s going to give me light coverage and color-correct any discoloration while also serving as a moisturizer,” Geller explains. “There’s nothing worse than a cream that will dry you out, especially for mature skin.”
