Mature Skin: The Ingredients it Needs

Posted by Ritu Khanna on

Once you hit 30 years old, the health of your skin starts to decline. Collagen production slows down, making your plump skin sag and look gaunt. Pigmentation also starts to show up, with melasma appearing on parts of your face and sun spots coming out. While this sounds scary, the good news is that there are specific ingredients to incorporate into your skincare routine in your twenties and as you get older which promise to reduce signs of ageing. Here are the four ingredients to add to your beauty regime to help combat mature skin.

Hyaluronic Acid

Perhaps the most talked about ingredient in the past few years is hyaluronic acid. This miracle-worker is known to add instant hydration to the skin. Since one of the biggest concerns with mature skin is a lack of moisture around the eye area, applying hyaluronic acid on in the morning or before an event will do wonders to instantly plump and hydrate mature skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our Replenishing Under Eye Repair Gel Cream With Hyaluronic Acid is a lightweight under eye cream which should be applied morning and night and is a great product to apply under makeup, as it will help with creasing from concealer and powder.

Cocoa Extract

The secret to ensuring that skin stays youthful and is protected against external pollutants is making sure that you are applying antioxidants. Cocoa extract is rich in polyphenol antioxidants, which strengthen the skin’s defence against stress, UV rays, pollution, and more. It also helps soothe dry, irritated skin and helps to firm mature skin. Our Perenne Instant Hydration Nectar Dry Oil Serum is rich in cocoa extract and has a non-greasy formula which works on all skin types, including mature skin. 

Shea Butter

This ingredient works well on all ages, but specifically mature skin. Because it is rich in fatty acids and vitamin E, it helps to fill in fine lines and wrinkles and add the plumpness back into your skin, while providing a moisture barrier to lock in moisture throughout the day and night. Apply morning and night and in colder weather, apply underneath an oil for extra hydration. Try our Perenne Moisturizing Cream with Shea Butter for All Skin Types which is a light textured cream that absorbs into the skin quickly.

Mulberry Extract

One of the first signs of ageing is dull, pigmented skin. One of the ways to reduce pigmentation and brighten skin is to use mulberry extract, which is a natural and safe brightener. It helps to fade away dark spots caused by melasma and sun spots, and bring the youthful radiance back to skin. Cleansing your skin with mulberry extract is the first and most important step to reducing dark spots and dullness. Try our Perenne Hydrating Face Wash Sulphate Free for Skin Lightening, Brightening and Hydration which is a sulphate-free cleanser that works at removing dirt, dust, and oil, while brightening the complexion.
