It’s no secret that as we grow older, our skin starts to change. Visible signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, and puffy eyes become more apparent. In addition, our skin tone and texture diminishes.
Skin can become more fragile as we age due to the thinning of the epidermis, which is the surface layer of the skin. Establishing a daily skin care regimen for your mature skin is important if you wish to combat these problems and maintain a more youthful appearance.
Start with a Cleanser
Cleansers are designed to remove dirt, oil, and other debris from the face. They also help reduce the presence of impurities like dead skin cells, bacteria, and viruses. When used as directed, a good cleanser can help refresh the skin and prevent the formation of clogged pores.
For mature skin, we recommend: Hyaluronic Cleanser with Argassential
Follow Up with a Toner
Toners offer several important functions. First, they remove any dirt and impurities left over from cleansing. Next, they help close your pores to reduce the penetration of impurities. Some toners also contain other ingredients designed to help protect and hydrate the skin, such as vitamins and antioxidants.
For mature skin, we recommend: Hyaluronic Toner with Glycoderm
Rehydrate with a Moisturizer
Moisturizer is an essential component of any effective skin care regimen. Moisturizers not only soothe dry skin and preventing flaking, but they also make fine lines and wrinkles less noticeable by filling creases in the skin. Using a daily moisturizer also helps replace lost oils, slows down the evaporation of moisture, and creates a protective layer against environmental impurities.
For mature skin, we recommend: Hyaluronic Moisturizer with Argeriline and Kojic Acid
Plump and Firm with an Eye Cream
Eye creams are formulated to use specifically in the eye area, making them a more effective and safe option. A good eye cream can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce dark circles and puffiness, and plump and firm the delicate skin around the eyes.
For mature skin, we recommend: Elastifirm Eye Cream
Slather on Sunscreen
No matter your age or the condition of our skin, sunscreen is a must. Sunscreen protects the skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. It also helps prevent painful sunburns, as well as other common skin issues like dark spots, discoloration, sagginess, and leathery skin.
For mature skin, we recommend: Clear Defence SPF 45 with Broad Spectrum
Treat with a Serum
Serums are an important step in the daily skin care regimen that many people neglect. Serums contain active ingredients that help restore cell growth by delivering powerful antioxidants to the skin. They can also help brighten the skin, reduce fine lines and improve texture, skin density, and firmness.
For mature skin, we recommend: Fibroblast Growth Factor Serum
Use Prescription Creams
If you are bothered with brown spots and pigmentation, you can also consider adding skin lightening creams in your skin care routine. Skin lightening creams with 4% hyroquinone is a safe and clinically-proven product that blocks melanin production which causes pigmentation.
Using prescription skin lightening creams can help lighten and even out your skin tone. However, this can only be used with a prescription and supervision from an experienced aesthetic doctor.
If you have mature skin, re-examine your skin care regimen to see if you could make any improvements. The right combination of anti-aging products can make a drastic difference in the overall look, feel, and condition of your mature skin.
