The conversation around ageing has shifted dramatically in recent months. No longer is mature skin being judged as the burden that it used to be. Instead, individuals are celebrating maturity like never before, and as fans of taking a slower approach to beauty, we couldn’t be happier!
There are so many reasons to adore your changing complexion and, as you’ll discover from our exploration of mature skin, there’s a beauty to growing older. Come celebrate with us and embrace your mature skin in all its glory!
At what age does your skin become more mature?
We often say that age is just a number, yet from the age of 35 onwards, the structure and microbiome of your skin undergoes some significant changes.
Age is however just a contributing factor in defining the point of skin maturity. The lifestyle you lead and have led in the past will have a major influence on the ageing process too, as Back to You Beauty explains:
“As we get older the metabolism of cells becomes slower. The synthesis of Collagen is reduced and dehydration creeps in. Add to this those lifestyle factors I mentioned: Stress, Illness, Medication, Smoking, Sun damage, Lack of sleep and diet and it all adds up. But how do you know if you have Mature Skin? Well for some people it is very obvious and for some of us it just creeps up!”
Developing mature skin is an entirely natural process and one that should be embraced and celebrated through skincare. While how you take care of your skin can delay the signs of premature ageing, skin maturity is inevitable. Using skincare to take care of your mature skin is, therefore, the key.
Mature skin isn’t a skin type, more of a skin condition, that should be treated with a considered skincare regime.
How do I know if I have mature skin?
Whether it seems like your skin has matured overnight or it’s been a more drawn-out process, there are several tell-tale signs, some of which are more noticeable than others.
As we age, the metabolism of our skin slows causing fibroblast activity and collagen production to decrease. This means the skin needs a little extra care to stay hydrated and radiant. Pores also tend to open more easily, whilst reduced tone and firmness, hyperpigmentation, and age spots become realities for most.
With the right skincare, however, the negatives associated with mature beauty can be alleviated, leaving you to embrace the positives.
Mature skin is after all a sign of strength, vitality and true beauty. Through age comes experience, and the way we have lived can be reflected on our skin. Teaming conscious, considered skincare with a healthy, balanced lifestyle will help you shift your mindset from anti-ageing to pro-ageing.
Should my skincare regime change as I age?
Living beautifully and ageing gracefully is our motto! As you age, your skincare routine has to evolve to help the skin deal with the changes it’s experiencing as well as prepare it for the future.
Instead of taking on the impossible task of trying to stop the natural ageing process, work your mature skin to your advantage with a revamped skincare regime.
Those delicate areas need a little extra TLC as you age. Fine lines and wrinkles become more visible due to the loosening and diminishment of the skin’s collagen reserves.
Our Perfect Eyes 3 in 1 Rejuvenating Eye Cream gives delicate under-eye areas that are prone to fine lines and wrinkles hydrating and refreshing replenishment every day. It uses antioxidants, regenerative oils and other organic ingredients to stave off dark circles, puffiness and dehydration lines.
Oestrogen levels also take a dip as we age and our skin matures. With this, your skin will need a little help repairing itself and tackling challenges, such as age spots, moisture loss, lost tone, and sagging.
Upping your skincare game with an intensive, natural serum – like our Rasayana Rejuvenating Serum – is what we recommend. Its multi-action formula works overtime to support the building blocks of the skin so you can enjoy a healthier, more youthful-looking complexion.
