Mature Skin

What does it mean to have mature skin?

As we grow older, the skin's own regeneration process slows down. In fact, this "getting older" does not happen only when the first wrinkles are visible. In fact, skin ageing begins as early as the age of 25. From this point on, the skin is no longer able to retain moisture as well as before. The formation of new skin cells and the production of collagen decreases. In addition, the skin, or rather the top layer (epidermis), becomes thinner and flabbier. In most cases, the first fine wrinkles appear from the age of 30.

at what point does one speak of mature skin?

After the 40th to 50th years of age, the signs of skin ageing become clearly more visible and one refers to mature skin. Most factors for skin ageing are hereditary and therefore start sometimes earlier, and sometimes later. The skin from the age of 50 needs rich care, which provides it with a lot of moisture and tightens it. Of course, no cream makes wrinkles disappear. However, that also doesn't have to be the focus. Wrinkles are part of your face and make it look interesting. As a result, it tells its very own story.

What a care...

...from the age of 50 can do, however, is to soften wrinkles and make the skin glow again. In addition to a hereditary predisposition, today, however, external environmental influences such as fine dust pollution also cause the skin to age more quickly. And this is exactly what can be prevented with the right care.

How can I keep my skin looking younger longer?

Sun rays are a beautiful thing, however, these dangerous UV rays are not good for our skin. This is because they promote faster ageing. This can be seen very clearly, for example, in people who are often under the solarium. Often many and deep wrinkles are visible in this case. The UV rays damage your skin deeply, that is, in the connective tissue strands that are responsible for elasticity and resilience.

So if you want to keep your skin young longer, you should avoid intensive sunbathing and always apply a day cream with a sun protection factor. A healthy and balanced diet also ensures that your skin stays firmer for longer. Moreover, cigarettes and alcohol should be avoided as much as possible. It is also important to protect against negative environmental influences. Natural cosmetic creams with antioxidants help here. These are natural protection against free radicals.

What care does mature skin need?

The skin from the age of 50 needs special care that intensively nourishes and protects it. Important for the care from 50 is a mixture of moisture and lipids (fats). The eye area is something you should pay special attention to for mature skin. Whether we are laughing, sad or angry - all our emotions are expressed here and we move the eye area accordingly. This is where the first wrinkles usually form. Intensive eye care provides your skin with moisture and valuable lipids. Particularly good are ingredients that slightly plump up the skin at the same time and thus soften wrinkles. 

In fact, it does not make sense to use particularly much cream, because our skin is only able to absorb a certain amount of active ingredients. If you apply too much cream, your skin will be overprotected and react with impurities or redness. The right combination of suitable active ingredients is much more important. The best facial care for people over 50 are creams that contain Q10, collagen and antioxidants. This combination slows down the aging process of the skin.

How can I strengthen my skin from within?

To avoid premature ageing of your skin, it is necessary to strengthen the connective tissue. Various foods can contribute to this strengthening. For example, berries contain many antioxidants , vitamins, folic acid and trace elements that stimulate blood flow to the connective tissue. The same applies to oatmeal. Furthermore, Broccoli is especially good because it is full of vitamin C, which stimulates the production of collagen. Besides, make sure you always drink enough water. It makes you look plump and flushes various toxins from your body. Of course, various dietary supplements can also strengthen your skin from the inside. However, you have to look very carefully and consider which active ingredients your skin really needs. However, with a balanced diet, supplements are generally not necessary. In addition, low stress and plenty of sleep are good for youthful and radiant skin. During the night, the skin has time to regenerate. If you get too little sleep, your skin will not have enough time for this.
