How To Make Older Skin Look Dewy

As we age, our skin naturally loses some of its youthful glow and moisture. But fear not! There are plenty of ways to bring back that dewy, radiant look, no matter how many birthdays you’ve celebrated. Whether you’re dealing with dryness, fine lines, or just want to boost your skin’s overall appearance, here are some tips and tricks to make your older skin look dewy and fresh. I will include some basic tips as well as specific formulas that we have to combat the look of dryness in older skin.

Specific Products That Make Older Skin Look Dewy

Here at Avon, we have a 3-Step process that has worked wonders on many skin types. These 3 products combined work together to create a synergistic effect that is more powerful than when using individual products alone. They are:

  1. Beyond Glow 6% Vitamin C Serum: Clinically tested to improve skin radiance in 3 days. Along with ferulic acid, a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C visibly improves radiance for glowing skin.
  2. Beyond Glow Snail Mucin Complex + Niacinamide Serum: Formulated with snail mucin complex and niacinamide to visibly brighten, moisturize and retexturize for radiant, glowing skin. Creates that glass-skin look: smooth, translucent and glowing!

  3. Beyond Glow Snail Mucin Complex + Panthenol Cream: Infused with the powerhouse pairing of snail mucin complex and panthenol, this innovative formula helps lock in moisture while visibly improving texture and elasticity. (Some have found their skin requires additional moisture, so you may finish with your regular moisturizer after this third step!)

Daily Routine Tips

  1. Hydration is Key
    • Drink Water: It sounds basic, but drinking enough water every day keeps your skin hydrated from the inside out.
    • Moisturize Regularly: Opt for a rich, hydrating moisturizer. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, snail mucin and ceramides that lock in moisture.
  2. Gentle Cleansing
    • Use a gentle cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Harsh soaps and cleansers can make your skin dry and dull.
  3. Exfoliate Wisely
    • Exfoliation is crucial for removing dead skin cells and promoting new cell growth. Use a gentle exfoliant once or twice a week to keep your skin smooth and radiant.
  4. Serum and Oils
    • Incorporate a hydrating serum into your routine. Ferulic acid serums are particularly effective.
    • Facial oils can add an extra layer of moisture and help seal in your skincare products.
  5. Sun Protection
    • Never skip sunscreen. UV damage can age your skin faster than anything else. Use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher every day, rain or shine.
  6. Healthy Diet
    • Your diet plays a significant role in your skin’s health. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and proteins. Foods rich in antioxidants, like berries and leafy greens, can help protect and nourish your skin.

Makeup Tips for Dewy Skin

  1. Primer First
    • Start with a multi-peptide primer containing a peptide blend, hyaluronic acid, collagen and niacinamide to create a smooth base for your makeup. This helps to lock in moisture and gives your skin a subtle glow.
  2. Lightweight Foundation
  3. Highlight Smartly
    • Apply a liquid highlighter to the high points of your face—cheekbones, brow bones, and the bridge of your nose. Avoid glittery formulas; go for something with a natural sheen.
  4. Cream-Based Products
    • Use cream-based blushes and bronzers. They blend seamlessly into the skin and provide a natural, dewy finish.
  5. Setting Spray


Q: Can I use natural oils directly on my skin? A: Absolutely! Natural oils like vitamin C, rosehip, jojoba, and argan oil are fantastic for hydration. Just make sure to patch test to avoid any allergic reactions.

Q: Is it necessary to exfoliate even if I have sensitive skin? A: Yes, but gently. Look for exfoliants with lactic acid or enzyme-based exfoliants which are less abrasive.

Q: How often should I change my skincare routine? A: It’s good to reassess your skincare routine every season, as your skin’s needs can change with the weather.


Achieving dewy, glowing skin isn’t just a dream for the young. With the right skincare routine, diet and makeup tips, older skin can also radiate health and beauty. Remember, it’s all about hydration, gentle care, and smart product choices. So, take these tips to heart and let your inner glow shine through!
