Embrace your mature skin
No matter your age or skin type, it’s important that we love our skin for what it is and take care of it every day to ensure it stays healthy and fresh. The earlier you nail your skincare routine the better and this is especially true if you want to keep your skin looking youthful and plump. At RAWKANVAS, we’re all about celebrating our skin at every stage of life. We shouldn’t be trying to rewind the clock but there are simple, effective things we can be doing now to help our skin stay plump, radiant, and smooth well into the future.
Can we turn back time?
Sorry to break it to you but fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots are all a normal part of getting older. It’s a natural effect caused by the loss of moisture and elasticity our skin experiences when we age, and we shouldn’t be ashamed of it. However, there are simple things you can do now to help our skin keep that youthful feeling for longer or in some cases maybe even improve our skins texture and vitality!
One of the most important ingredients our skin needs to stay plump, soft, and wrinkle-free is collagen! Collagen is your best friend if your aim is to maintain a youthful appearance for as long as possible. It’s actually a protein found naturally in your skin that works to keep in moisture and promote elasticity. Our skin’s natural collagen levels start to decrease from your mid-to-late 20s so that’s usually a great time to start incorporating it into your skincare routine.
Other ingredients that help to moisturise and nourish mature skin include hyaluronic acid which holds up to 1,000x its weight in water to keep your skin plump and glowing, vitamin A which stimulates the production of new skin cells and vitamin E which is a powerful ingredient for reducing skin damage.
When looking for ways to help our skin feel refreshed and youthful, applying these ingredients topically is a great, low-cost way to feel an immediate impact without the need for painful and unnecessary cosmetic injections! We recommend looking for these key ingredients in products that don't hurt yourself or the earth.
Collagen from deep under the sea
Until recent times, collagen has been an ingredient traditionally sourced from animals. Luckily, there’s now a guilt-free and sustainable way to get all the benefits that comes with this powerful ingredient. In fact, research shows that seaweed collagen is more powerful than the animal source, making it the ideal choice.
Eternal: Plumping Deep Sea & Malachite Collagen Serum not only works wonders to rejuvenate your complexion and keep skin plump but it also protects your skin from nasty free radicals. The addition of vitamin C also helps to visibly brighten skin and repair any damage caused by sun exposure. Use Eternal in your daily routine before moisturiser to fully benefit from the natural skin rejuvenating benefits. You will thank us later!
All of the oils
One of the best ways to maintain that glowing, youthful complexion is to keep your skin full of moisture. Incorporating naturally occurring oils into your skincare routine on a regular basis will ensure your skin is deeply hydrated and protected from drying out during cooler months. Oils also keep your skin feeling dewy and looking hydrated which is the key to radiant, youthful skin!
Luna Vitality: Restoring Moisture Cream is an award-winning moisturiser specifically designed for mature skin. Packed full of vitamins A, E, B and D thanks to oils and naturally rich in essential fatty acids, Luna Vitality is one of our best-selling products for mature skin. We recommend incorporating this moisturiser into your daily routine, after using cleanser and toner, to achieve a plump and youthful-looking complexion.
Don’t forget your hands!
We use our hands for everything so it’s no surprise that as we age our hands are often the first areas to show signs of sun damage and loss of elasticity. Although it’s important to moisture our hands regularly to keep them feeling smooth and soft, we should also be incorporating rejuvenating ingredients that help keep our hands youthful for years to come.
Healer: Protective Hand & Nail Cream contains hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate and promote elasticity as well as co-enzyme Q10 and green coffee that help to rebuild collagen and promote the skin’s natural ability to rebuild and repair. We recommend using Healer every morning and night to protect your hands from drying out, especially during winter months, and keep them silky soft and smooth all year round.
From cleansers and toners to moisturisers and serums, mature skin can benefit from a whole range of skincare must-haves that keep you looking fresh and radiant for years to come. To view our full collection of vegan, nature-loving essentials for mature skin, click here.
