With age comes maturity and wisdom but also a whole load of skin problems too. We know everything in life has it’s pros and cons but what if just this once, everything was a pro? Well, with the right skincare routine, you can make your skin look decades younger. Our anti-ageing top tips can help you with all sorts of mature skin problems, from fine lines and wrinkles to hyperpigmentation and uneven skin textures.
One of the most common signs of ageing is when your skin begins to sag. Firm and tight skin is commonplace with youth, so the best thing to help defy the appearance of ageing is to choose good skin tightening products. Effective skin firming treatments are those that encourage cell renewal, boost hydration levels, support elastin and collagen production as well as conditioning and protecting the skin with active antioxidants and peptides.

Another common problem that arises in mature skin is that cell turnover rates begin to slow down, which results in a build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. This build-up leads to skin looking dull and lacklustre at best or rough, course and uneven at worst. To help smooth and brighten skin, you’ll need a face exfoliator that thoroughly stimulates cell renewal.

Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin cells that produce melanin are damaged and thus begin to arbitrarily and uncontrollably produce excessive melanin pigment and distribute it unevenly on the skin. This is common in mature skin as years of sun exposure and consequent sun damage is a primary cause for hyperpigmentation. Although, hormones, pregnancy, medication and skin trauma (i.e. acne scars) can also be a cause of skin pigmentation. Nonetheless, the anti-ageing products you need for this skin condition are skin pigmentation treatments that inhibit melanin formation but also act as an exfoliator to brighten the skin and target existing pigmentation.
