Your skin is a good time capsule. It carries a memory of all the journeys you've made...
So, it’s important to know what’s going on with your skin – and how to help it look its best.
That's what I want to focus on today: I want to help you understand the 4 biggest problems of mature skin and make sure your skin is getting what it needs.
As we age, the collagen in our skin starts to break down and elasticity decreases, which means that skin issues can arise...
The changes that our skin goes through depend on a number of factors like genes, lifestyle, habits and hormones.
Here are 4 of the most common mature skin problems that you need to pay attention to.
Hormone levels changing, stress and the not so healthy sugar cravings can lead to unpredictable breakouts.
Stress can rise your cortisol levels, which can increase inflammation, oil production and you may find yourself eating unhealthier...
Using Bakuchiol can help you counter blemishes and at the same time stimulate collagen to firm up saggy skin and improve lines and wrinkles, and give your skin a boost of antioxidants.
Dry skin can be a real struggle; I know what that's like!
Especially when you've tried so many methods and nothing has worked...
When estrogen levels drop, skin feels thinner, blotchy, and just doesn't have a "glow" anymore.
Then, with fall and the colder months just around the corner, you've a recipe for a desert complexion.
Going for a moisturiser that has a rich, nourishing formula will relieve dry, stressed skin and promote radiance.
More sensitive skin
Sensitive skin is often caused by a damaged or weakened protective barrier, which we've talked about many times in past emails.
That's why choosing the right cleanser and moisturiser is so important, especially if your skin is sensitive or has become more sensitive.
Some cleansers can really dry out your skin and damage your skin barrier.
Moisturisers are next in line:
To have a healthy and strong skin barrier, you need to choose moisturisers that support the function of the skin barrier.
Looking at the ingredients before buying a moisturiser is important because many creams contain irritating chemicals
that contribute to the dryness and sensitization of the skin that comes with age.
Try our Prebiotic Moisturising Cream, which contains a powerful prebiotic complex, organic Rosa Damascena oil and rosehip oil to strengthen the function of your skin barrier.
More pronounced wrinkles
Wrinkles don’t come only due to age, but also due to too much sun damage over the years.
However, it’s never too late to start using sunscreen and rejuvenating products… and why not one product that can do both!
Our recently launched Antarctic Sun Defence sunscreen combines both high protection factor of 50 and a rejuvenating peptide that heals existing sun damage.
After I told you about these 4 main mature skin problems, let’s finish the email for today with something slightly more optimistic.
Despite the struggles that come with skin aging, it’s undoubtedly a privilege to get older.
Plus, as we get older, we get to have more time to take care of ourselves and our skin!
