Skin Aging: Understanding the Process To Better Slow It Down
Skin aging is reflected in various signs such as loosening of the skin, more pronounced wrinkles, sometimes pigmentation spots and a dull complexion. It is due to intrinsic factors such as a decrease in the rate of cell renewal, a change in the composition of the dermis and the molecules that make it up (hyaluronic acid, collagen, etc.) and the melting of fatty and muscular tissue that no longer plays its supporting role.
Nevertheless, extrinsic factors that depend on lifestyle choices can greatly accelerate the process (poor diet, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, sun exposure, stress, lack of sleep, etc.). However, even if it is an irreversible phenomenon, it is possible to improve one's lifestyle to slow down skin aging and/or to adapt one's skin care routine in this sense.
Mature Skin: What Skin Care Routine To Use in the Morning?
In the morning, the main objective is to help the skin fight against external aggressions and oxidative stress that accelerate skin aging.
To do this, start your day by applying our moisturizing cleansing milk with hyaluronic acid and chamomile extract. Enriched with moisturizing active ingredients, this cleansing milk eliminates impurities without drying the skin. It emulsifies on contact with water into a fine foam. Massage this product into the face and rinse. After that, apply the radiance face serum, highly concentrated in vitamin C (11%). It gives a real radiance boost to dull and tired complexions. This treatment also contains 3% Albizia Julibrissin extract. This plant of Asian origin restores vitality to the skin. Together, these ingredients help slow down the process of photoaging.
Alternatively, you may prefer the Firming and Radiance Complex, which is concentrated in antioxidant ingredients. This serum offers a preventive and corrective action against the appearance of the signs of aging. With this product, the epidermis is toned, and the complexion is even and luminous.
Note: Don't forget to protect your skin every morning with a broad spectrum sun protection. The sun's UV rays generate numerous free radicals that damage the skin's healthy molecules, accelerating its aging process.
Mature Skin: What Skin Care Routine To Use in the Evening?
In the evening, it is recommended to use anti-aging active ingredients (retinol, bakuchiol, etc...) that will stimulate collagen production during the night. Hydration is also essential because skin that is lacking in water will tend to show more fine lines.
Whatever your skin type, removing makeup is essential. Apply makeup remover oil directly to your face until all makeup is removed.
Then cleanse your skin with our moisturizing Palmarosa cleanser. This soap is made by cold saponification, a process that allows the vegetable oils to retain their moisturizing and soothing properties. The moisturizing cleansing milk can also be used to wash the face. It contains moisturizing active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and chamomile extract, which is ideal for cleansing the skin while respecting its balance. Indeed, with age, the skin produces less sebum and thus tends to dry out. This cleansing care allows the skin to get rid of all the impurities accumulated on its surface without compromising the skin barrier.
Once your skin is clean and dry, apply our wrinkle and fine line serum formulated with 0.3% retinol. This product prevents skin loosening by stimulating the synthesis of collagen and elastin. As retinol is sensitizing, its use is not recommended for sensitive and sensitive skin. If this is the case, choose the antioxidant serum instead. It illuminates and unifies the complexion, helps fight against skin aging and firms the skin. It contains 3% ferulic acid and 3% resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant that acts preventively (prevents the formation of free radicals) and subsequently (neutralizes existing free radicals). You can also opt for bakuchiol serum, a natural compound similar to retinol. It has a similar effect to retinol. In fact, studies have shown that bakuchiol stimulates collagen production. The difference is that it is less irritating, resulting in less tingling and flaking.
Finish your evening routine with our nopal tightening botanical blend. This night serum helps firm skin with the toning and regenerating actions of 7 botanical extracts, including immortelle essential oil. Alternatively, choose rosehip vegetable oil at the end of your routine. If you prefer to use prickly pear oil, it regenerates and firms the skin. It is cold-pressed from organically grown prickly pear seeds.
