We ask ourselves many questions about mature skin. What characteristics does it have? When do we begin to treat it? How to know if my skin is mature? From what age is it considered mature skin? In this post you will solve all your doubts about mature skin and its characteristics and care.
My skin, my history
We are what we have lived, experienced, shared. As we grow older we add up experiences, events… and all of this reflects on our skin. Each wrinkle reflects a unique event.
Mature skin: what happened to my skin?
Many things change. With the passing of the years the metabolism of the cells becomes slower. From a certain age the skin presents specific characteristics: the amount and activity of the fibroblasts is reduced, as well as the synthesis of collagen. Also, the skin dehydrates and dries up due to the reduction of the vascularisation and sweat and sebum secretions. There are also disorders in the pigmentation and “age darkspots” appear.
All of this added to the exogenous factors that affect and deteriorate daily the skin: sun, tobacco, diet, exterior environment, etc. produce an aged face.
How to identify mature skin?
- Drier and finer skin.
- Lack of luminosity.
- Flaccidity, lack of tone and firmness.
- Deep wrinkles.
- Pallid or yellowy colour.
- Open pores.
- Hyperpigmentation and age darkspots.
At what age do we speak of mature skin?
Although we normally speak of mature skin from the age of 35 onwards, the starting age will depend on each person’s history, as the biological age does not have to be united to the needs of the skin. In the ageing of the dermis intervene both endogenous factors (genetically programmed ageing) and exogenous factors (external agents, lifestyle, emotions, environment). Our face reflects our history.
They come at a price…
- Hormone changes.
- Exposure to environmental factors like the sun, cold or air.
- Ailments, chronic illnesses and their medication.
- Fatigue, lack of sleep.
- Toxins like tobacco and alcohol.
- Sedentary life.
How to restore mature skin?
The ideal to prevent skin ageing is to begin the care at an early age, go to the aesthetics centre regularly and take the necessary precautions: protection against the sun, healthy lifestyle, diet… all of this will help to “prevent” premature ageing, as well as showing off pretty, healthy skin in the long term.
The spirit is maintained youthful and dynamic, but the face inevitably begins to change. It is essential to adopt a positive attitude towards the signs of ageing. The most important thing after a certain age is not want to look younger, but to show your age with elegance, optimism and naturalness.
It is materially impossible to have a skin of 20 years after a certain age, so you have to pamper your skin with a global anti-ageing treatment that keeps the face healthy, supple and with life that preserves the beauty. It should solve the problems that mature skin presents:
– Provide comfort and hydration for dry and tight skin.
– Protect and strengthen the skin against environmental aggression.
– Stimulate the process of skin regeneration and recover firmness.
– Provide luminosity and correct and reduce darkspots.
– Smooth existing wrinkles.
