How To Age Gracefully - Skincare for Mature Skin

As we age, it is natural for our skin to show it, from fine lines & wrinkles to loss of plumpness. Aging is a beautiful thing, but glowing skin has no age limit. Skincare helps to slow the aging process in the skin, and keep your skin looking more youthful, for longer!  

Each person's aging depends on a range of factors including environmental stressors, genetics and lifestyle. There are many ways to impact the way your skin shows signs of aging including maintaining a healthy diet, avoiding smoking and also adopting a targeted skin care routine.

In this blog post, we'll be going over an ideal skincare routine for Mature skin. All skin is very different and unique, so for the BEST products for your unique skin, book a free virtual consultation for advice from one of our certified esthetician's! 

Skincare Routine For Mature Skin

Step 1: Cleanse

Use Eminence's Firm Skin Acai cleanser daily, reducing signs of aging and leaving the skin feeling firmed, vitalized, hydrated, balanced and smooth.  1-2 times a week, use an exfoliating cleanser such as the Monoi Age Corrective Exfoliating Cleanser which firms and hydrates the skin while washing away grime and impurities. Crafted with exotic monoi, this refining cleanser rejuvenates skin for a smooth and lifted appearance. It is made with Eminence's unique Natural Retinol Alternative, gentle fruit AHAs, botanical enzymes and finely ground olive seeds that work in unison to refine skin and deep clean pores for a fresh, youthful-looking complexion. 

Step 2: Tone

Tone your skin using the Neroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist, which helps you combat the appearance of sagging skin. It contains a combination of moisture-replenishing ingredients including coconut water, neroli oil and coconut milk. 

Step 3: Mask

Eminence's creamy Bamboo Age Corrective Masque minimizes the look of dry, dehydrated & aging skin. This mask is infused with a BioComplex, a booster of antioxidants, coenzyme Q10 and alpha lipoic acid to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains argan oil which is an antioxidant that softens and moisturizes skin. It also contains shea butter, a moisturizer high in triglycerides and fatty acids. 

To use, dilute a small amount of the mask with water. Apply evenly with your fingertips and leave the mask on for five to 10 minutes.

Step 4: Serums & Concentrates

Next, use your serums and concentrates. There are so many beautiful options you can find HERE. One of our favourites is the  Bamboo Firming Fluid to infuse your skin with age-defying ingredients like bamboo, coconut and a Natural Retinol Alternative. Bamboo consists of soluble and insoluble fiber, antioxidants, proteins, vitamins and minerals for firm, hydrated and stronger-looking skin. This product stole the heart of actress Katherine Heigl who said: “I started using it because I love the way it smells ... it added just enough moisture to give my skin a gorgeous dewy glow without being too oily.” Another wonderful product is the Marine Flower Peptide Concentrate, an innovative cream-gel concentrate that helps the skin look firm as well as targeting the visible signs of aging, giving your skin a revitalizing boost that reveals smooth, more supple-looking skin. 

Step 5: Eye Care

Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream is an ultra-rich eye cream that uses naturally derived plant peptides and innovative algae extracts to reduce the visible signs of aging. Suitable for use day and night, this versatile eye cream provides long-lasting hydration and visibly improves the appearance of wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles.

Step 6: Face Moisturizer 

The Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream For Face & Neck contains monoi, evening primrose oil and an Argan Stem Cell Complex to rejuvenate the look of aging skin and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. What’s interesting about this product and the Monoi Age Corrective Night Body Cream is that they are designed to refresh skin overnight. As a result, this moisturizer leaves skin looking soft and revitalized, and can even be used twice a day. 

Step 7: Sun Protection

Sun Protection is KEY to aging gracefully. When you consistently use SPF every day, regardless of the weather, you WILL notice a massive difference in your skin over time. Our favourite Sun protection routine starts with the Tizo AM Replenish Tinted SPF 40 This sunscreen is silky & applies + blends in effortlessly. Once you try it, it is hard to go back to your old SPF. Throughout the day, it is important to touch up on your SPF, which is why we LOVE the Eminence Sun Defense Minerals as an easy, on the go, touch up powder! You can throw this in your beach bag, purse, or even in your pocket. It is definitely a summer must have. Take the extra mile with sun protection by rocking a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses, approved by the Skin Cancer foundation, plus a Gigi Pip Hat. Sun protection is CRUCIAL to healthy, happy skin and we highly recommend a sun protection routine that covers all your bases!

Step 8: Body Lotion 

Replenish your skin’s moisture and enjoy a luxurious night’s sleep with this ultra-rich Monoi Age Corrective Night Body Cream. Enticing monoi unites with Eminence's exclusive Argan Stem Cell Complex to reveal softer, smoother and more youthful-looking skin, while shea butter and jojoba oil help to deeply hydrate and repair dry skin from head to toe. 

Wellness & Supplements

Beautiful skin really does start from the inside out! Keeping that glow as you age, involves lots of inner work as well. Staying hydrated, eating nutritious foods and taking your supplements! A big factor when it comes to loosing that youthful plumpness in your skin, is the loss of collagen as you age. This is why everyone should be adding Collagen into their supplement routine. Our Collagen Powder blends beautifully into smoothies, tea, water, or even in yoghurt and desserts. Another supplement that makes a massive difference on your skin as you age, is Bend's Renew & Protect. We just discussed the importance of sun protection, but did you know, that you can protect your skin from harmful UV rays with a supplement as well? The Renew & Protect Supplement has 6 powerful active ingredients, this formula goes deep to target the root cause of skin aging, resulting in healthy, dewy, more youthful skin and reduces skin sensitivity to UV-induced sunburn.
