Let’s talk maturing skin. It may be inevitable, but we think it’s beautiful too. Because our skin tells a story about who we are and where we’ve been over the years – from entering exciting new chapters to growing stronger and wiser... it endures so much in life just as we do! So, this isn’t an article trying to rewind the clock... we’re here to help you love your skin, feel confident in your skin and take the time to care for your skin as it matures.
So, what’s the best way to achieve healthy and happy-looking skin as we mature? Ingredients to renew, brighten, hydrate and protect.
Let’s take a look at the top three ingredients to nail these skin goals! From assisting to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, loss of collagen and elasticity, dryness, pigmentation, sun damage and more...
Retinol (vitamin A)
Skin goal: Renew
Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A, a powerhouse vitamin that works to help boost collagen and elastin production, reduce cellular ageing, regulate sebum production, stabilise pigment and much more. It causes your skin to speed up its normal cell-turnover process, meaning that it will shed skin cells more quickly, revealing younger cells, inevitably assisting fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and even breakouts. We recommend:
Skin goal: Brighten and protect
Vitamin C is the wonder woman of skin brightening. As well as brightening the skin, it assists with hyperpigmentation, skin redness and inflammation, while also acting as a shield against pollutants and sun damage. This vitamin also acts as an antioxidant to counteract and protect your skin against free radical damage. We recommend:
- Eternal: Plumping Deep Sea & Malachite Collagen Serum
- The Foundation: Flawless Retinol & Vitamin C Lotion
The Limelight: Brightening Probiotic Lotion
Skin goal: Hydrate
Hyaluronic acid is one of the best ingredients to reduce the signs of maturing – purely for its immediate hydrating and plumping effects. Thirsty skin, just like anything that’s alive and thirsty, shrivels up. Hence, fine lines and wrinkles. What really makes hyaluronic acid a standout ingredient is its ability to hold a large amount of water – just one gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to six litres of water – which is why it’s one of the most powerful ingredients for hydration!
Tip: Always remember to apply your products containing hyaluronic acid to already moistened skin. Spritz with water or our Harmony: Radiance Boosting Toner. Get to know all about this method here.
- The Limelight: Brightening Probiotic Lotion
