Mature Skin Types

Mature skin is generally defined as skin that is showing signs of aging. Some people’s skin show signs of aging earlier than others, while others exhibit signs of aging later. Mature skin is thinner, more fragile, and has some loss of elasticity and firmness. Other characteristics include sagging skin and uneven skin tone, such as dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

Protect your skin from the sun

The sun's harmful UV rays can accelerate skin aging, causing wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of aging. To protect your skin from the sun, dermatologists recommend:

- Seek shade during the sun's strongest hours (10 am - 2 pm).

- Cover up with clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses.

- Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every day, even on cloudy days.

Moisturize every day

As we age, our skin naturally produces less oil, which can lead to dry, itchy skin. To keep your skin looking and feeling its best, it's important to moisturize every day. Look for a moisturizer that is hydrating but non-comedogenic (won't clog pores).

Face wash routine

Wash your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser. Using harsh soaps and detergents can strip away the natural oils from your skin, leaving it dry and irritated. Instead, use a gentle cleanser that is designed for sensitive skin. Wash your face twice a day, morning and night.

Stop smoking

Smoking damages your skin and can accelerate the signs of aging. If you smoke, quitting is the best thing you can do for your skin's health.

Eat a healthy diet

A healthy diet is essential for overall health, including skin health. Make sure to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. These foods are packed with antioxidants that can help protect your skin from damage.

Get enough sleep

Sleep is when your body repairs itself and rejuvenates. When you don't get enough sleep, it shows on your face. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night.
