Best Skin Care Tips For Aging Black Skin

Best Skin Care Tips For Aging Black Skin | Buttah Skin by Dorion Renaud |  Black Owned Skincare

We’ve all heard the phrase “Black Don’t Crack.” While we generally agree with this, it’s more appropriate to add a footnote to the statement that reads “Black Won’t Crack (if you take care of it).” Melanin rich skin has different needs as it gains more experience.

In your 20s, you probably hated that your skin would become oily minutes after having washed your face. Now, you may find that your skin feels tight and dry when you wake up in the morning. We’ve compiled a list of the top 3 best skincare tips and products for aging African American skin to ensure you continue to age backwards.  



As you age, the oil producing glands that kept you oily in your teens, 20s, and 30s start to retire early and don’t produce the amount of oil they used to. Many facial cleansers on the market can over cleanse your skin, stripping away the skin’s natural lipid barrier and natural oils. Those natural oils are nature's way of making sure your Black doesn’t crack.




A gentle but cleansing face wash will help clean the skin but keep those natural oils in place. You’ve probably been cleansing with a face wash that leaves your skin squeaky clean. Do yourself a favor and toss it in the trash. You don’t need a squeaky clean feeling on your face after you’ve cleansed. Overcleansing will cause your skin to constantly look and feel dry.  

Keep your skin naturally in balance with the Buttah Skin Gentle Face Wash. You’ll notice that your skin will look and feel less dry and irritated.



Vitamin C serums work wonders on our skin. Serums are like a shot of healing nutrients and antioxidants for the skin. If you suffer from dry, dull skin then you need this.




A potent dose of vitamin c and hyaluronic acid are like the Peaches and Herb of skincare. The vitamin c works to exfoliate dry, dead, and dull cells off the top layer of your skin, and reduces the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid delivers a tall drink of water to your more than likely dehydrated skin. The combination of these ingredients in Buttah Skin's Vitamin C Serum will help to rewind the clock. You may find yourself getting carded again (wink). 






 After you wash your face and apply a skin brightening Vitamin C serum, you need to seal in the hydration with a heavier moisturizer. As you age, your skincare needs a bit of extra to help keep the moisture in. Extra doesn’t have to mean a fancy moisturizer with ingredients you can’t pronounce. We like to keep it simple with Shea butter. It’s made from a single ingredient and sourced directly from Ghana. 



Some of our favorite celebrities over 50 like the beautiful Angela Bassett and our dynamic First Lady — Michelle Obama — credit their well preserved skin to exercise. It helps to improve blood circulation which makes sure that essential nutrients and vitamins are flowing to our skin, hair and nails. Just 30 minutes per day is all you need. Call up your girlfriend and catch up on a walk. 



Buttah’s Complete Skin Kit takes the guesswork out of skincare. Our line was formulated exclusively for melanin rich skin tones of all shades and ages.
