The ability of the skin to divide and renew cells decreases with age. Important skin components such as collagen fibers or elastin become weaker with age and the skin becomes less firm. The subcutaneous fat also decreases, which can lead to veins becoming more visible. The moisture content of the skin decreases with age. The production of sebum and sweat glands decreases and the skin binds less moisture. The result is drier skin with increasing wrinkling. Itchy horny layer tears with reddening and flaking are not uncommon. Overall, the skin appears dull, thinner and forms age spots (benign pigment accumulations).
Care for mature skin: A mature skin is usually also a dry skin. Mild and moisturizing cleaners with a low pH value are a good choice. Especially balms and cleansing creams with a high fat content are recommended. The job of care is to add moisture to the skin. A face oil followed by a moisturizing day cream and a rich night cream are a good combination. Since the cell division activity is particularly high at night, nutrients and vital substances can support the skin's regeneration processes particularly effectively. The skin around the eyes and the front of the neck in particular are prone to wrinkles and are happy to receive special attention.
