1. Olay's Touch of Sunshine, £10.60
Not everyone wants to apply foundation every day. If you want a moisturiser to combat the signs of ageing, provide some protection from the sun, and give your skin a healthy glow, try Olay's Touch of Sunshine. It comes in three different shades, so you can choose how dark you want to go, and is a multi-tasking bargain at just £10.60.

2. La Roche Posay Rosaliac AR Intense Localised Anti-Redness Intensive Serum, £18.26
Many women are susceptible to rosacea post-menopause, particularly in cold weather. If redness is a problem for you, try La Roche-Posay Rosaliac AR Intense. Used twice a day on problem areas, it helps to soothe angry and uncomfortable skin. The formula contains Ambophenol, a powerful vegetable extract rich in polyphenols to reduce the size of blood vessels and strengthen their walls, and Neurosensine, a soothing active ingredient to reduce appearance of redness.

3. Ren Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift, £31.05
Most women over 50 know how ageing dark circles, puffiness and crow's feet can be. While surgery is the only permanent solution, Ren Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift does a good job of brightening the eye area and temporarily improving the appearance of eye bags. Tap a small amount into the skin (no rubbing) after you have applied makeup.

4. Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips, £22
No matter how good your skincare routine, there are some instant give-aways of age: sun spots on the hands, a wrinkled neck and thinning lips to name but three. Luckily, today's beauty products can make a difference without the need for invasive procedures. If you have thin lips but don't like the idea of injectable fillers, try Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips. It instantly plumps lips to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. While you'll feel a tingle, it doesn't give a nasty sting like some of its rivals.

5. Darphin Jasmine Aromatic Care, £52.82
Skin tends to get thinner and dryer with age. If your complexion could do with a boost, try Darphin Jasmine Aromatic Care. The nourishing facial oil is specially designed for mature skins. Apply five drops to the skin in the evening, and it promises that you'll wake up to softer and plumper skin.
