How do I take care of my mature skin?
Aging skin is the result of both internal and external factors and can result in wrinkles, sun spots, and dark circles under the eyes. Luckily, we have the best anti aging products available to help you care for your mature skin. Read on to find out more for mature skin.
When you were younger, it’s unlikely that you gave too much thought to your skin care routine and how it could affect you later on in life. When we are filled with the glow and blissful state of being that comes with youth, we tend to not let a little bit of sunburn put us off spending the day in the pool or at the beach.
While an anti-aging routine may not have been part of the plans all those years ago, it’s clear now that everything you have done in your life has left some sort of impression on your skin. We also have to accept the inevitable skin changes that come about with aging; wrinkles, sagging, thinning, and dryness are all part and parcel of growing older. Hormones also play a big part in the character that is added to our skin as we age.
While it’s impossible to stop the aging process or completely undo the damage to your skin, the great news is that we know how you can look after your mature skin. By paying just a little more attention to your skin care routine and lifestyle, you can nourish and soothe your skin until it is glowing once more.
1. The signs of mature skin
Before investing in the most expensive mature skin care products, it’s important to understand what mature skin looks like. Knowing what your skin is going through is essential to finding the best anti-aging skin care routine for your face.
By age 50, hormonal changes due to menopause cause the fibroblast matrix to become thin and fragile, impeding the skin’s ability to protect itself during the day, and reenergize itself at night—resulting in slackening, wrinkles, dullness, dryness, and an uneven skin tone.
Here are some signs that your skin can be considered mature:
- Skin that has become dry and fine
- Dehydrated skin
- Dull skin
- Visible lack of tone and firmness
- Deeper wrinkles
- Wide pores
- Age spots/dark spots/hyperpigmentation
2. Beauty routines for mature skin
Luckily, anti-aging skin care has improved remarkably over the last couple of years and you can now use the best anti-aging skin care products to get your glow back. It’s important to have a comprehensive skin care regimen that takes extra good care of your mature skin. What is the best skin care for aging skin? See more below.
Everyday replenishing moisturizer
Your skin care routine shouldn’t be reserved for special occasions; it must become an aspect of your daily morning habits. The core foundation of an effective anti-aging skin care regimen is having the best anti-aging face cream in your repertoire that moisturizes and replenishes your face every day, such as Clarins Super Restorative Day Cream. Apply the cream to cleansed skin during the day. The super power behind this anti-aging cream is organic Harungana extract, which is the base of all our powerful anti-aging products in Clarins’ Super Restorative Routine Range.
Add some of our Super Restorative Treatment Essence for when your skin feels extra tired. This energizing essence is the perfect skin care foundation for mature skin. It gently exfoliates with Hibiscus Flower acids and Harungana extract to help your skin look more smooth, refined, and soft - leaving it looking radiant and feeling refreshed for the best anti-aging cream in your cupboard.
Skin firming lotion while you sleep
The best anti aging night cream will do the work for you while you sleep. The Super Restorative Night Cream will help you wake up fresh and glowing, with skin that feels ultimately replenished.
Anti aging serum
Our Double Serum and Super Restorative Remodelling Serum are the best anti aging serums to add to your skin care routine. Best used in the morning, the Double Serum has the power of two serums packed into one. It has 21 plant extracts, including Turmeric, to boost your face’s radiance. You’ll feel more youthful and fresh in just a few short days. For a nighttime skin treat, the Super Restorative Remodelling Serum is powered by plant science to visibly lift, and promote a youthful-looking complexion.
Exfoliating your skin has a plethora of benefits. It can boost circulation and brighten your skin, while cleansing and purifying pores. Keep in mind, however, that you shouldn’t exfoliate too often, around one to three times a week is ideal. Removing dead skin cells is an essential aspect of any good anti-aging routine, and you should reach for a product like the One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract.
Don’t forget about your neck and hands
The skin around your neck and eyes are particularly susceptible to the signs of aging because the skin is extra thin and is often exposed to the sun. Ensure that you take advantage of a good anti-aging hand cream for the tops of your hands.
Clarins’ Super Restorative Décolleté and Neck Concentrate is powerfully replenishing and filled with organic Harungana and Montpellier Rock-rose extracts.
To complete your routine, add Total Eye Lift, specially designed for the eye area.
3. Protect your skin
Protect your skin from the risk of premature aging by using a cream containing an SPF every single day, whatever the weather. Try the Clarins UV+ SPF 50 Anti Pollution Sunscreen. This multi-protection cream helps to decrease the risk of premature signs of aging from harmful external factors.
Remember that lifestyle plays a big role too
Even if you use the best skin firming cream daily and an excellent serum at night - lifestyle cannot be undone by beauty products completely. The importance of sleep, hydration and exercise cannot be overstated when it comes to looking after mature skin.
Your skin is trying to repair itself while you sleep and you’ll give it a much-needed boost with good quality sleep. Of course, the amount of sleep everyone needs varies from person to person, but it’s essential to try to wake up and go to sleep at the same time every day, and to avoid caffeine later in the day too.
Exercise is also important for healthy, rejuvenated skin. Regular exercise, even if that’s just walking, helps your circulation and gets much needed oxygen to your skin. Exercise can also help stimulate oil production in your skin, to improve its smoothness.
Of course, getting enough water is absolutely essential when it comes to the health of your skin, particularly as you mature. Hydration helps to maintain your skin’s elasticity, which helps with the signs of aging.
