Our skin matures with time and exposure to influences such as weather, environment, diet, or lifestyle. This usually turns into a skin care regime for those wanting to help control maturing skin but special care is needed more than regular skin. Here are simple points I like to follow for helping to control maturing or aging skin:
Cleansing your skin. Basic cleansing helps prepare your skin to better absorb skin care products. Remove as many foreign substances that don’t belong on your skin before caring.
Balancing skin with Rose Water or a Face Mist helps skin adjust moisture and clean deeper under the skin surface.
Serums are the key to revitalizing aging skin in the shortest possible time, depending on the absorption qualities and the body make-up of each person. The basic ingredients for all skin serums helps penetrate underneath your skin for maximum moisture. Serums are absolutely required and deserves your attention for aging skin types.
While serums provide deep penetration, moisturizers play the role of nourishing the outer epidermis by helping lock in moisture and nutrients. This makes your skin feel smoother and full of vitality to visibly reduce signs of aging skin.
The eye area is the thinnest skin on your body and is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Try to moisturize your eyes daily, preferably before bed. This helps nutrients have enough time to recover your skin while you rest.
Some people do not enjoy the greasy feel of their skin after using balms or lotions, but it is the most effective way to provide moisture to the skin. After approximately 10 minutes, the lotion will penetrate deeply into your skin and the greasy feeling will be significantly reduced. If you find the greasiness inconvenient, try gentle massage movements at bedtime to work it in. Your skin will be completely radiant the next morning.
Use products with Hyaluronic Acid or Vitamin C. Hyaluronic Acid has 300 times more water retention than Glycerin to hold in moisture and Vitamin C helps tighten and brighten your skin. These are currently the most popular ingredients for anti-aging formulas.
Protection from the sun. Sunlight is one of the largest causes for maturing skin and all those who live in tropical climates will agree. Whether tropical or non-tropical, sunscreen and proper coverings must be remembered.
Skin care for mature skin types have both similarities and differences with other skin types. However, with maturing skin types one must invest more time than the other skin types for anti-aging results. Remember, time and commitment are key to your skin care goals but especially for maturing skin types.
