With age and the onset of menopause, cell metabolism slows down, which accentuates the skin’s aging process. Our skin changes and requires different care. The skin then becomes “mature”. But how do you know if your customer has mature skin? What are its characteristics?
WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF MATURE SKIN?
First of all, mature skin is undernourished and beginning to lose its vitality. It is dry and uncomfortable because of a decline in the production of sebum, ceramides, and other skin lipids. It thins and becomes more sensitive to external aggression.
Mature skin also becomes gradually more affected by the passing years. Radiance fades, wrinkles emerge, firmness vanishes, the lines on the face begin to deepen, and age spots start to appear. The skin becomes devitalized.
So, if you want to recognize mature skin, glance at your face and ask yourself four simple questions that will help you determine your skin maturity:
1. “Do I have any established wrinkles?” If you have established wrinkles, your skin is showing one of the first signs of maturity.
2. “Can I see through my skin to any tiny veins?” If veins are visible, your skin has thinned as a result of aging.
3. “Has my face contour lost definition?” If your face has lost definition, your skin has lost firmness and may have started to sag like most mature skin.
4. “Do I have any dark spots?” If dark spots are visible, your skin may have age spots appearing after years of sun exposure.
If you answer yes to these questions, then your skin may be defined as mature and needs specific products to maintain and enhance it. The good news is that there are steps you can take to help improve the look of mature skin.
HOW DO YOU ENHANCE THE APPEARANCE OF MATURE SKIN?
When caring for mature skin, it’s important to use products with nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol, niacinamide, peptides, and antioxidants such as green tea extract and resveratrol. These ingredients can help reduce wrinkles while also providing hydration and protection from environmental aggressors like pollution and UV rays. It’s also important to use products with sunscreen in them so you can protect your skin from further damage caused by the sun’s rays.
