Mature skin requires your attention, but it will repay you by delaying the appearance of visible signs of aging. Find out how to care for your skin to keep it fresh and youthful for longer.
What are the characteristics of mature skin?
The aging process of the skin depends on many individual factors, but mature skin most often affects women over 45. In fact the skin begins to age already after the age of 25. In your thirties changes start taking place faster and faster and become more visible to the naked eye. Therefore, the earlier you start proper care, the longer you will enjoy your youthful appearance.
The skin in your forties requires special care, as the levels of estrogen and progesterone in the body are lowered. This, in turn, damages the walls of the blood vessels and weakens the blood supply to the skin.
Mature skin is also characterized by a lack of elasticity and dryness. The cheeks, corners of the eyes and mouth descend due to the decreased production of collagen with age. The more they slow down the skin's natural protective processes, the more nourishing and moisturizing ingredients it needs to be supplied from the outside.
Dry, sensitive and allergic skin is most affected by the lapse of time. Delicate skin has a weak protective layer, and therefore is more exposed to harmful external factors, such as solar radiation. Thus, dry skin can age up to twice as fast as its more moisturized counterpart.
How to take care of mature skin?
Avoid solar radiation.
The sun dries the skin and contributes to discoloration. Dermatologists claim that up to 80% of the signs of skin aging visible before the age of 50 are caused by the so-called photoaging. Therefore, in the summer season, remember about a cream with a high SPF factor.
Exfoliate dead skin cells regularly.
RENEW ME peeling smoothes the skin and improves its blood circulation, thus minimizing the visibility of wrinkles.
UPLIFT ME cream for mature skin firms the skin, making wrinkles shallower. In addition, moisturizing will provide you with a skin with a healthier color, more resistant to the harmful effects of the sun and pleasant to the touch.
Do a massage.
A gentle auto-massage of the face will stimulate blood circulation and make the skin elastic. It is worth using the SMOOTH ME ⠀ anti-aging and brightening serum with vitamin C, serum for this purpose, thanks to which your skin will absorb valuable nutrients. To firm the skin, make circular movements from the center of the face outwards and from the chin to the forehead. The best time to relax is in the evening, because that's when hormones are released that help rebuild the skin.
Take care of proper hydration.
Hydration of the body depends not only on the amount of water you drink, but also on your diet. You should drink at least 4 glasses of water a day, but it is equally important to eat vegetables and fruit. Varied, fresh meals rich in vitamins A, E and C, as well as selenium and zinc, support the health and appearance of the skin. If your skin is dry, avoid salty foods, coffee and tea.
