How would you describe mature skin?
Changes occur in our skin, as we grow older and can cause our skin to change appearance and the actions it performs. This can include lower collagen production, slower renewal and rejuvenation of the skin, reduced cell activity and damage from UV radiation and tends to lack moisture and elasticity. With the right skin care you can maintain your youthful appearance for longer, by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
How can you best care for mature skin?
Even though we cannot halt the ageing process we can use specific products that will help our skin look hydrated, healthy and youthful for longer.
Cleanse: Use a creamy moisturising cleanser to protect your skin barrier, as the drier your skin the more vulnerable it is to damage. We suggest you use our cucumber cleanser as it combines almond oil which creates a protective layer on the skin, grape seed extract which will boost collagen in the skin to keep it firm, supple and moisturised and rosemary leaf extract which is packed full of nutrients and antioxidants that give it anti-ageing properties.
Tone: After cleansing apply an alcohol free toning gel to immediately revive, rehydrate and refresh your skin. We always recommend our hydrating toning gel that is packed full of organic and natural gels, extracts and oils to soothe, heal and regenerate your skin. It combines calendula extract, which is beneficial for dry and damaged skin while protecting the skin from premature aging and thinning of the skin, sweet orange essential oil to boost the development of collagen to help your skin stay firm, supple and moisturised and green tea extract which is a strong antioxidant that protects the skin from the damaging effect of free radicals and can actually decrease wrinkles and also makes you look younger.
Hydrate: When choosing your face cream it is important to find a natural cream that is packed full of natural and organic ingredients that will keep your skin hydrated and protected while lessening the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. We recommend our Rose Restore Cream, as it is packed full of beneficial oils, extracts and butters. These beneficial natural ingredients include; almond oil and shea nut butter which creates a protective layer on the skin, Jojoba oil which helps create a more youthful appearance, grape seed extract which helps your skin stay firm, supple and moisturized and carrot infused oil which is a must have oil for healthy skin.
Extra Love & Care: Our skin needs a little extra care and love every so often so that is why we always suggest using nutritious rose hip oil. Rose hip oil is renowned for its anti-ageing properties and healing abilities, as it is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamin and antioxidants that are essential for skin health. Every night after cleansing, massage this beautiful oil into your skin to help combat the signs of ageing.
Squirt a small amount of cucumber cleanser into wet hands and apply it to your face in a circular motion, making sure each spot gets covered. Keep massaging in a circular motion for thirty seconds to a minute. Then rinse off with warm water and pat dry with a towel, making sure you don’t rub your face, as this can encourage wrinkles and irritate the skin.
Then smooth a small amount of toner onto face and neck, wait 30 seconds and then use a small amount of our rose restore cream; rub cream in your hands first to bring it to skin temperature, this will encourage absorption and then apply the natural cream in a firm but gentle pressing motion. Apply more cream to the affected areas.
