Getting old is beautiful. And while we love how every small wrinkle can have its own story, we want to make sure you give your skin the best conditions to age gracefully in.
This also means enriching your routine with nourishing products that will keep your complexion smooth and bouncy while being mindful of what factors that can accelerate premature signs of aging or damage the skin. So, let’s get smarter about maturing skin together.
GOOD TO KNOW: If you’re new to vitamin A, we recommend a slow introduction of Vitamin A Treatment Cream to your routine. Start by using the product 2-3 times a week, then gradually increase use to once every day as tolerated. If your skin is on the dry side, boost your routine with our Daily Hydra Cream for a silky-soft and balanced finish.
Fulfill your skincare with our tightening, rejuvenating, and peeling Intense Peel Mask that triggers the production of new cells while counteracting premature signs of aging. To make things a bit easier, we’ve collected this strong routine in a kit on our site.
Psst... We recommend that you use sunscreen no matter your skin type or concern, but especially maturing skin should remain well-protected with broad-spectrum sun filters and nourishing antioxidants, which you can find in our sunscreens.
What is maturing skin?
Maturing skin simply refers to skin that has reached a phase where the cell turnover rate is reducing, while the skin’s oil and collagen production is simultaneously slowed down. This affects your skin’s elasticity, meaning it’ll be more prone to developing wrinkles and fine lines, whereas the lack of oil production can leave a more rough, dull, and dry surface. Luckily, there’re remedies that can help your skin bounce back.
What causes maturing skin?
Age. Simple as that. And just as we can’t stop aging, we can’t stop our skin from showing our signs of a lived life completely either. However, there’re some factors that are known to speed up the skin’s aging process. These are sun exposure, smoking, environmental conditions, pollution, stress, and a poor diet, which can all cause the changes in the skin to develop from a far too young age. Therefore, you should always evaluate whether your lifestyle is beneficial for your skin’s health, as the signs of aging are easier to prevent than reverse.
How do I treat maturing skin?
A step that can never be skipped in a routine for maturing skin (or any skin type at all) is SPF. As UV rays are one of the most prominent aging-accelerators for the skin, SPF is the holy grail of every protective routine. It’s also highly beneficial to supply your routine with retinoids/vitamin A, as these will promote the collagen production in the skin while working to smooth wrinkles and fine lines and enhance a firm and even-looking surface. Moreover, we’d always recommend lots of moisturizing and hydrating products for every skin type, but these can be especially suitable for maturing skin. This is because they’ll help keep the skin flexible and supple, and therefore less prone to develop wrinkles and a dull appearance.
Go-to ingredients for maturing skin
Vitamin A is an essential ingredient in giving your maturing skin the best care possible. This retinoid has been found to boost the skin’s collagen production and accelerate cell turnover, thereby fading signs of aging and revealing fresh skin cells to ensure a soft texture and smooth surface. The peptide argireline is also acknowledged for its ability to counteract premature signs of aging. Actually, this wrinkle-fighting ingredient has the nickname natural Botox due to its ability to effectively slow down muscle movements that lead to wrinkle formation.
