If anyone knows the best skin-care products for women over 50, it’s celebrities. They have access to basically every luxury skin-care option and expert on the planet, so if they say something is good, you can trust that it’s meeting pretty high standards. Aging is finally being more embraced in our society, but at the same time, there’s still pressure on women in the public eye to look young forever. Which is also why stars know how to keep their skin healthy and radiant—something there’s nothing wrong with wanting, no matter your age.
That’s why we rounded up this list of the best skin-care products for women over 50, recommended straight from stars with glowing, gorgeous skin themselves.
A few things to keep in mind: “At this point, reduction in skin quality, meaning your skin’s thickness, amount of collagen, and volume, becomes apparent,” says NYC dermatologist Heidi Waldorf, M.D. Skin in our 50s is also typically drier (and has less of a natural glow) due to hormonal shifts and a decrease in oil. This is why moisturizing and antiaging skin-care ingredients are paramount. NYC dermatologist Jeannette Graf, M.D., also recommends “looking for creams containing retinol as well as those with hydrolyzed collagen and peptides”—particularly for the more delicate skin around your eyes.
With those basics down, read on for the face oil Laura Dern says is like a face-lift, the serum Viola Davis can’t get enough of, and the night cream Jennifer Aniston’s sworn by for decades.
