Unfortunately, we can’t stop time, so there’s little we can do about getting older. Even though you may feel you have the same energy level as you did when you were in your 20’s or 30’s, sadly the same can’t be said of your skin.
As we age, our skin loses its elastic tissue which can result in it developing a dull appearance and feeling weak and thin. So, what can you do to help your skin maintain a glowing complexion as you mature? Let’s find out...
Why it’s important to give extra love to your skin as you age
Every day your skin is at the mercy of environmental aggressors and irritants like sun exposure, pollution and the stresses that life brings. The process of ageing also has a noticeable effect on your skin. Most notably, the elastin and collagen in your skin reduce, leading your skin to lose its elasticity. Also, the skin’s epidermis - its natural barrier - thins leaving your skin more prone to damage from external factors.
The visible skins of ageing include dry and dehydrated skin, wrinkles, a loss of firmness, pigmentation and the development of fine lines.
To help bring a glow back to your maturing skin you need the right products:
