How to Take Care of Mature Skin

Posted by Opus Int. on

Your skin changes as you age. 

Apart from fine lines and wrinkles, you have to deal with blotchiness, dryness, and irritation, among many other things. 

That’s why you need to learn how to take care of mature skin. Here’s a rundown of what you need to do: 

  1. Wash Your Face Regularly

Use a mild cleanser to wash your face and rinse it with warm water. Avoid using hot water, for it’ll dry your skin further.

If you’re fond of wearing makeup, make sure to use a cleansing balm prior to help remove all the impurities.

If you want smoother skin, use an enzyme peel instead of a physical scrub. The latter is abrasive and can easily harm thinner mature skin.

  1. Moisturize Your Skin Daily

Mature skin gets drier than usual. So to keep your skin plump and youthful, make sure to moisturize your face and body daily. 

For best results, apply fragrance-free moisturizer within 3 minutes of bathing.

  1. Reduce UV Exposure

The sun (and tanning bed) are the mature skin’s worst enemy. Exposure to ultraviolet rays can lead to photoaging, which makes your skin age even faster. 

Here’s how to take care of mature skin against the sun:

  • Wear sun-protective items, such as hats, long-sleeved tops, and pants
  • Apply sunscreen with SPF 30 (or more) 15-30 minutes before going out; reapply it every two hours
  1. Eat Healthily

You are what you eat. 

Consumption of unhealthy eats - such as sugary food, processed meats, and dairy products - can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and a leathery skin texture. 

Healthy food - such as fruits and vegetables - are rich in antioxidants. They help fight the signs of skin aging, thus helping you maintain a youthful look. 

  1. Quit Smoking

It’s not too late to quit smoking, especially if you have mature skin. 

Cigarettes contain toxins that harm the skin and lead to a smoker’s face. Signs of this include:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Dullness, dryness, and sagginess
  • Leathery texture
  1. Sleep Well

Make sure to get seven (or more) hours of sleep every night. It helps your body make new collagen, which keeps your mature skin from sagging. 

And yes, it is called beauty sleep for a reason. According to WebMD, those who sleep <5 hours get more fine lines (and darker under-eye circles) than those who sleep for >7 hours!  

In a Nutshell

Mature skin tends to get dry and irritated quickly, so it needs a lot of tender loving (skin) care! 

So apart from limiting your sun exposure, eating right, and sleeping well, you need to use the best skincare products available.
