As we age, our skin becomes thinner, naturally loses its ability to retain moisture and collagen, and elastin becomes damaged. Three factors play into these changes: chronological aging, environmental and sun damage, and for women, loss of estrogen after menopause. Which is why it’s more important than ever in these decades of our life, to give our skin what it needs.
Here’s our top recommendations for skin in it’s 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and beyond.
The most important thing for aging skin is to make sure it’s getting enough moisture. Look for hydrating powerhouse ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, found in our Gold Moisturiser and Gold Eye Serum, and Vitamin E, found in our Hydrating Milk which is packed full of Almond, Jojoba and Green Tea to intensely nourish the skin.
Incorporate more Vitamin C into your routine
Vitamin C is the ingredient powerhouse in skincare. Also known as ascorbic acid it is a potent antioxidant, meaning it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals, it also inhibits melanin production in the skin, which helps to lighten hyperpigmentation and brown spots, even out skin tone, and enhance skin radiance. Our Organic Baobab Oil has seven times more Vitamin C than oranges, and is stuffed with vitamin A, B and C and omega, 3, 6 & 9. After cleansing, apply a few drops to face & neck daily or as needed. A lifeline for dehydrated and maturing skin.
Use targeted support
In addition to our overall face care, as skin ages it’s important to provide target support to areas that need it, or show more visible signs of ageing.
For eyes - Our Biocellulose Eye and Mouth Patches help banish puffiness, dark circles and enhance skins firmness.
For hands – Our hands show signs of ageing more rapidly than other areas, so nourishing them with our bestselling Fig & Vanilla Hand Wash and Hand Cream will help to keep them smooth and supple.
For décolletage – Often overlooked, this area can be prone to lines, dryness and pigmentation. Our Organic Rosehip Oil can help to renew skin cells, lighten discolouration and protect skin with a plethora of antioxidants.
One final note….
Here at Natural Spa Factory, we don’t believe in anti-ageing, and instead like to focus on healthy ageing. Whatever stage of life you’re in, we believe the most important factor is to love the skin you’re in!
