What is mature skin and how can we care for it?

We’ve all heard the term ‘mature skin’ thrown around and although we may think we know exactly what it is, there’s actually a lot more to it. Here’s what you need to know about taking care of mature skin with our range of products.

What is it?

When your skin starts to lose it elasticity, become more fragile and develop wrinkles and lines as you get older, it’s considered mature skin.

Mature skin is not a skin type - you’ll probably have oily, dry or combination skin even as it matures, but there’s no specific age when skin is classified as mature. Factors like genetics, lifestyle and the environment can affect how and when your skin ages, however, as we grow older, most of us will experience changes in our skin that fall into this category.

Signs of mature skin

Everyone’s skin ages differently, but common changes people experience as they grow older include:

  • Dryness and itchiness
  • Thinning
  • Age spots and wrinkles
  • Slower healing and recovery

 

It’s a good idea to make a note of these changes as they happen and update your skincare routine accordingly.

 

Caring for mature skin

 

Since mature skin isn’t a skin type but more of a concern, the effects of ageing on the skin can exacerbate existing skin issues you have or create new ones, which is why it’s important to deal with the signs of mature skin as they occur.

If puffiness, fine lines or wrinkles are among your mature skin concerns, our Manuka Natural Eye Concentrate can give you the relief you need. The unique blend of UMF 15+ Manuka honey and bisabolol helps protect, heal and reduce puffiness, while Hyaluronic acid helps minimise fine lines and wrinkles. The Seabuckthorn oil, which is rich in vitamins, carotene and phytosterols helps stimulate healthy cell renewal - keeping your skin young and vibrant.

To restore lost moisture, diminish the signs of ageing and restore your skin after a long day, treat yourself to our nourishing Restorative Rich Night creme. It hydrates with powerful UMF15 Manuka Honey and Hyaluronic acid, while the Vitamin A helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. We’ve also combined this cream with powerful botanical extracts, which assist in restoring your skin’s natural mantle.

Manuka honey has been used to treat scars, fine lines and other skin conditions for years. Now, you can feed your skin the goodness of this natural antioxidant and other vitamins and minerals to help you maintain that glow and elasticity, no matter your age. While mature skin can be delicate and difficult to take care of, Apicare is giving you one less thing to worry about.
