What does the term “mature skin” mean?
The term mature skin is generally used for the age group around and after the menopause. The actual age is genetically different person by person, usually beginning at 45-55 years. Mature skin is mostly dry, lacking grease and is water deficient, even if it was more greasy at a young age. Old truth in beauty care: the way you treat yourself and care for our skin in your 30s and 40s, it will definitely impact the appearance of your skin, and can delay the aging symptoms. It is interesting – and also the wise justice of nature – that the skin which is most problematic, greasy and full of pimples trends to grow older much slower than the originally dry, fat- and water-deficient skin would.
The elasticity and tightness of the skin generally decreases with age. While nearly 97% of the body of a fetus is water, this is 75% when you are a baby, the adult body only contains 55% of water. Body aging is a natural process that, unfortunately, cannot be prevented, but it can be delayed!
At the age of 50 – What changes do you need to make in your skin care?
Let’s have a closer look at what changes can occur to our skin around the menopause. Individual symptoms can be rather different, as they depend to a great extent on the type of skin we had, how and what we used for taking care of it, and the lifestyle we have been pursuing.
- decreased sebum production, resulting in a drier, looser skin
- reduced ability of the cell to retain moisture
- loosened collagen-elastin fibroblast system, that reduces elasticity and tightness of skin
- the enzymes that are responsible for detaching dead hornea cells are getting tired, causing the skin to become rough and faded
- the balance of the protective lipid barrier layer of the skin is worn, thanks to that skin sensitivity, redness may occur
- peeling and erythema may also appear,
- shortages of moisture in deepar layers of the skin would stimulate the creation of deeper wrinkles
- malfunction of dye formation can bring up pigment spots on the face, or on the hands
No wrinkles at the age of 50 – What can we do at home?
According to my experience, most of these symptoms can be delayed or reversed with appropriate treatment. It is important to note that our advices relate to the symptoms of natural skin aging, assuming a healthy body. In many cases marks would alos appear on the skin of the back, face or hands as the side effects of medications or medical treatement. For example, increased cornea formation or abnormal pigmentation should be treated by a specialist!
- Facial Cleansing: – The first and most important step in maintaining the beauty of your skin is to use tenzid-containing cleansing milk and moisturizing toner for gentle cleansing. I do not recommend soap, as it dries skin further via reduced sebum production.
- Regular Scrubing: Mandatory for ages 40 and over, with this practice we revive and refresh our skin. Use fruit acids, hibiscus, peeling products containing enzymes, such as Herbsgarden Hibiscus Facial Scrub.
Creams, Serums: Use creams suitable and appropriate for your age and skin! Even though a cosmetic has worked well for the past 10 years, it is worth considering to choose a different skin-regenerating cream for mature skin that is more nutrient and active. In any case, carefully check the composition of cosmetics, apply only lubricate natural cosmetics made from pure ingredients. Make sure to buy from a reliable manufacturer. Use serum with liposome-encapsulated skin-repairing creams, which also contain ceramides. Liposomes help active ingredients get absorbed at deeper layers, that can strengthen the skin’s structure and enhance its vitality. Serums rich in antioxidants, Q10, carotenoids, should also be incorporated into your skin care routine. Our strongest anti-wrinkle products are the members of the Jasmine product line, and we also recommend Timeless Beauty Cream, which is a favorite of our beloved actress, Papadimitriu Athina.
- Lifestyle: Much More Attention to Diet and Exercise!
- Drink more herbal teas, rosehips, clear water. It is worth measuring your daily water intake, as your body is less and less likely to signal dehydration with thirst. One of the main causes of wrinkling is the lack of water, inside and outside!
- Let’s spend more time outdoors, be active in gardening or walking.
- Sun Protection: The use of sun protection becomes obligatory on a daily basis to reduce appearing and spreading of pigmentation spots on your skin.
- Beautician: Regular cosmetic massages help you keep the skin tight, turn to a professional who works with chemical-free cosmetic products also rich in natural ingredients. A good specialist, passing the right ingredients deeper, can rejuvenate your face for years.
It is proven by scientific experiments that good-hearted, optimistic, positive people lend to have less wrinkles than their pessimistic, negative-minded counterparts. Our facial expression, tension and relaxation of our facial muscles also play a major role in the condition of our skin. Everyday stress also “sits” on our face, so whenever we can we should regularly have a massage, relax, walk in nature, on the riverside, at the lake. Let’s find something positive every day that we can be grateful for. Inner beauty leaves a glittering impression on our face as well.
