Mature Skin: Restore and Rejuvenate

Aging is an inevitable part of life. As we age, our skin's natural ability to regenerate new cells begin to slow down. The skin becomes thinner as less collagen and elastin are being produced. The above mentioned are all common problems with aging skin. However, that doesn't mean that glowing, radiant skin is unachievable when you are in your 50s or 60s. At Oshen Skin, we believe that healthy aging is important. We are here to hlep you find a skincare routine for aging skin that is just right for you.

Therefore, here is a gentle reminder to you that aging can be graceful when you age with confidence, value your experiences, knowledge and wisdom that you have gained over the years and rising above a youth-oriented culture. It is about embracing who you are as a person inside and out.

Key Traits of Mature Skin

Our hormone changes as we age. This is espeically true for women. Hormonal changes related to menopause can further affect the skin. Low levels of estrogen and progesterone result in noticeable drier and dull looking skin. Furthermore, the skin's ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases and the sebaceous glands start to produce less oil, which eventually lead to the skin appearing parched and dehydrated with time. The combination of the above causes the skin to feel tight, and fine lines start to appear.

Uneven skin tone and texture is also another sign of mature skin. Dryness and build of up dead skin cells and accumulated exposure to the sun causes the skin to appear rough and bumpy. We may not be able to defy the laws of biological aging, we can, however bring the best out of our skin.

How to Manage Mature Skin

Fine lines and wrinkles are always going to be a part of our aging skin. However, don't let these signs stop you from embracing your age and glowing in your skin.

Aging skin requires greater care in selecting products that can penetrate deeper into the skin. It involves incorporating active ingredients that can target deeper into the skin layers. Selecting higher quality products that are formulated for mature skin is the key to achieving healthy, glowing skin.
