The 5 Best Tinted Moisturizers For Mature Skin


As we age, our skin suffers from sun damage, collagen depletion, reduced elasticity, dullness and a host of other signs that we aren’t as young as we used to be. The cosmetic industry has developed a slew of products in the anti-aging category to help combat these issues in preventative ways. As a society we are evolving towards a more positive view of aging but that doesn’t mean we don’t want our skin to look and feel as good as possible, which is where a good tinted moisturizer comes into play.

This award-winning formula from Revlon is formulated with five anti-aging products in one to correct, protect, conceal, brighten and hydrate the skin. Clinical tests showed 97% improvement in smoothness, 94% brighter and even-toned skin and 91% improvement in fine lines and wrinkles. The product uses 20 plus anti-aging ingredients including three different peptides, vitamin C, and various natural extracts such as yeast and plankton. A broad-spectrum SPF 45 offers protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector

The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector tinted moisturizer has SPF 20 and contains active ingredients like retinol – the gold standard in the anti-aging category – as well as antioxidants and vitamins. It promises a dewy complexion and comes in six blendable shades.

Beauty Basics Mineral Sheer Tint

This hypoallergenic formula is designed to act as a foundation, sunscreen, and antioxidant lotion. The brand uses a “multi-mineral complex” that targets signs of aging. Potent mineral ingredients such as magnesium, potassium, sodium, zinc, lysine, and antioxidants including ginkgo biloba, ginseng and vitamins A and E promote skin vitality. It’s water-resistant and lightweight with SPF 20 protection.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer

Yes, another selection from Neutrogena. Like many anti-aging products, it is formulated with retinol, which targets fine lines and overall skin texture and dullness. We selected this one because it’s non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog pores making it a good choice for women who want anti-aging benefits but who also still experience hormonal acne breakouts. It also protects against sun damage with SPF 20.

Paula’s Choice Resist Super-Light Wrinkle Defence SPF 30

This tinted moisturizer from Paula’s Choice is packed with antioxidants and offers UVA & UVB protection. Some of the antioxidants include resveratrol, a plant-derived polyphenolic antioxidant that’s found in red grapes, red wine, nuts, and fruits such as blueberries and cranberries. It is thought to protect the skin’s surface while brightening the complexion and has skin-calming effects that reduce redness. It’s a mattifying mineral-based formula that will leave skin hydrated by not greasy.
