What is considered mature skin?

How old is mature skin? The answer isn’t strictly defined by age. Some may exhibit the tell-tale signs of aging earlier, and some later. It all comes down to a cocktail of genetics, environment, sun exposure, sleep, diet and whether you smoke. All of these play a role in how your complexion progresses as you get older.

Functions like cell turnover and collagen production will start to slow as you age, which can manifest itself in your skin in different ways. Generally mature skin will start to become drier and flakier, while fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots become more pronounced. So, when should you start using anti-aging skincare? When the above skin concerns begin to become more noticeable and you’d like to nourish the skin with tailored products and ingredients, turn to mature skincare.

Featuring hyaluronic acid and squalane, it nourishes the under eye area helping it to look more supple, smoother and less puffy.
