5 Ways to Care for Mature Skin
Ageing is inevitable. Whether you choose to grow old gracefully or disgracefully (we don’t judge), your skin will go through changes associated with ageing.
You may notice your skin having a duller complexion, or becoming drier, your pores may become noticeable and you may likely notice new wrinkles. This is known as mature skin and is considered to start roughly around age 35.
No two people’s experience with mature skin is the same either, a lot of internal and external factors contribute to how your mature skin presents. These can include:
Although everyone’s skin is different, there are some general things you can do to care for your mature skin that apply to most people. Read on for our top 5 tips for caring for mature skin.
1) Prevention is better than cure.
We all wish we could turn back the clock sometimes, and when it comes to mature skincare, this is no exception. Keeping sun safe and applying SPF regularly is one preventative measure you can take against premature ageing skin.
Starting a skincare routine early can also keep your skin in great condition before mature skin begins to show. It’s generally recommended that you begin integrating Q10 or Anti-Ageing products into your skincare routine from the age of 20 to prevent the formation of wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.
2) Consider the products you’re using
Products that feature Q10 are essential for appropriate maturing skin. The coenzyme Q10 is a natural active ingredient in the skin that helps prevent damage to collagen, and elastin and promotes skin cell rejuvenation, which starts decreasing from the age of 30.
Furthermore, keeping your skin healthy will always be beneficial, especially for mature skin. At sebamed, we formulate our products at a pH value of 5.5. to encourage the healthy development of the acid mantle. This supports the skin’s defence against environmental factors and drying out.
3) Hydration is key
When it comes to mature skin, hydration is key! This, again, is a great preventative measure for the development of fine lines and wrinkles. However, if you neglected hydration before it’s not too late to start now.
Using warm, not hot, water on your skin, avoiding harsh soaps and adding hydrating products to your skincare routine all contribute to hydrated skin. sebamed Anti-Ageing Wrinkle Filler can be used on the face to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles in just 28 days*. Pair this with sebamed Q10 Anti-Ageing Firming Body Lotion on the rest of your body to improve the elasticity of the skin and increase skin smoothness. Both of these products leave your skin incredibly hydrated and youthful looking.
Exfoliating mature skin is a delicate balancing game, but a very necessary step for radiant skin. When skin ages, it loses the ability to quickly shed dead skin cells which can lead to a rough, dull complexion. Because of this, it is important to regularly exfoliate. However, mature skin can be thin and delicate, therefore you should be gently exfoliating no more than twice a week.
sebamed Clear Face Gentle Scrub is the perfect addition to any mature skincare routine. Offering gentle, pore-deep exfoliation, dead skin cells are buffed away for fresh-looking skin.
5) Protecting your skin
When you’ve done so much work to care for your mature skin, you’ll want to maintain the results.
Complete your mature skincare routine with sebamed Q10 Anti-Ageing Protection Cream. Packed with refreshing Vitamin E, antioxidants and all-important Q10, this cream is the perfect finale to an expert mature skincare routine.
Although there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to mature skin, taking the appropriate steps can help you achieve your youthful skin goals. Additionally, with both Q10 and a formulation of pH 5.5, the sebamed Anti-Ageing range is specially formulated to give the best care for mature skin.
