Mature Skin is a term often used to describe ageing skin but no one ever explains what it is; more specifically how you can help it. If you’re noticing your skin is losing volume and is becoming drier than usual keep reading to see how you can help!

Mature Skin, what is it?

Mature skin is a term for older skin where the skin cell turnover rate is reducing, collagen production is slowing down and sebum secretion is lessening. Maturing skin on average begins occurring in the mid-30s but external lifestyle factors such as sun exposure, diet, environmental conditions and tobacco can also cause these changes to begin occurring as young as 25.

How can I tell if my skin is maturing?

You can often identify mature skin by noticing if your skin is:

  • Drier and finer than usual
  • Looks dull
  • More fine lines and winkles are appearing
  • Dark pigmentation and age spots are becoming more noticeable

Can I prevent my skin from maturing?

Prevention is key when it comes to mature skin. Investing in a quality skincare regime from a young age helps keep your skin health at the optimal level while also protecting against some of the  external factors mentioned above. Specific ingredients are also important to incorporate into your skin routine such as Retinol which has been found to be one of the most powerful anti-ageing ingredients. Alongside a tailored skincare routine, using daily sun protection and avoiding sun exposure will help dramatically when it comes to preventing mature skin.

How can I help my mature skin?

Although you can’t completely reverse the effects of mature skin – there is no need to worry. Simple things such as focusing on eating vitamin rich foods and hydrating your body can visibly improve your skin. Another simple way to improve your skin investing in a good skincare regime tailored to your skin.
