As the years go by, we might notice our skin isn’t as radiant as it used to be. While this is a natural part of getting older, there are some ways you can bring back your skin’s healthy glow. Here’s how.
What is mature skin?
Mature skin is a broad term, but it’s connected to skin which displays signs we usually associate with ageing- such as fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dullness and so on. Your genetics, lifestyle, environmental and other factors can contribute to such changes at any age.
If you’ve noticed your skin isn’t as radiant as it used to be, it’s important to find out why. Lifestyle factors such as drinking alcohol, smoking and falling asleep with make-up on, can lead to dullness and dryness over time. Have a look at which unhealthy habits may be affecting your skin’s radiance, and take small steps daily to replace them with healthier habits.
Daily care for brighter skin
Skin naturally starts to lose its ability to renew and repair itself with time. This natural process of ageing can lead to dullness- but you can minimise this by creating a daily skincare routine for yourself.
Your routine will depend on your skin type, but there are some basics it should include.
Ideally, you should start off with a gentle cleanser such as our Manuka Natural Creamy Cleanser, which nourishes and tones in one step.
Next step is a serum to even out skin tone and improve the appearance of dark marks. The Manuka Natural Even Brighter Serum contains a natural skin brightener called Giga White- perfect for treating dark spots, skin discolourations and sun damaged skin.
After you’ve used your serum, it’s time to moisturise. There are many moisturisers on the market, so it’s best to use one that addresses your unique mature skin concerns. Our Saving Face Moisturiser is specially formulated with Macadamia Nut oil, which is perfect for moisturising mature skin. This moisturiser also contains UMF15+ Manuka Honey- a soothing anti-inflammatory that assists with hydrating and enhancing your skin’s natural cell renewal.
Finish off your routine with a broad-spectrum SPF to ensure your skin is protected from UVA and UVB rays which cause dullness. We recommend the Manuka Natural Sun Protect mineral sunscreen.
Even if you adopt one healthier habit today, you’re already on the path to brighter, youthful looking skin. Mature skin can be radiant, and you deserve to show the world your true glow. Give yourself the gift of healthy skin today!
