After reaching the age of twenty-five, the complexion of many women begins to change. The first wrinkles appear, hyperpigmentation is more visible and skin becomes less firm. However, much depends on how we care for it, because the right care can significantly delay the aging process. In this article you will learn more about caring for mature skin.
Proper application of face cream
This is a very important issue, because a lot depends on how you apply the cream on your face. It should not be spread violently over the skin, but gently patted. This way we stimulate blood vessels to work, which helps in maintaining firmness of the complexion. Remember also to apply the cream in the direction corresponding to the location of muscles, so in the case of eye cream it will be from the inner to the outer corner.
Protect your skin from the sun!
Often people do not realize how negatively the sun affects their complexion. Harmful ultraviolet rays cause the skin to age much faster and at a higher rate. So it’s a good idea to apply an SPF sunscreen every morning. Even if you do not plan to leave the house, you should do it, because the sun’s rays get through the window panes.
Remember to cleanse your face thoroughly
Cleansing is the most important part of skin care at any age. Mature skin especially needs it, because only through thorough and regular cleansing will the ingredients of cosmetics be able to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. If you wear makeup every day, make sure to remove it thoroughly every evening, and then wash your face twice with a gel. If you don’t wear makeup, skip the makeup removal step.
Scrubbing and Masking Can Help
Regular facial skin exfoliation is also very important at any age. Mature skin is weakened, so it is especially important to stimulate it. Perform it at least once a week. We especially recommend using an enzymatic scrub. After this procedure, when the skin is cleansed, it is worth applying a mask. Its active ingredients should be well absorbed. It is best to reach for a nourishing or moisturizing mask. A good way to do this is to use a sheet mask.
Do not forget about lipids
In caring for mature skin it is very important to replenish lipids. Choose such creams and serums, which have them in their composition. It is worth to visit a cosmetologist in order to choose such cosmetics.
Try not to touch your face
This is also a rule that should be followed at any age. Touching causes the transfer of impurities from the hands to the face. This results in pimples that can turn into scars. In mature age, scars form more frequently and are more difficult to get rid of.
