Mature skin care is about managing the skin cells.
- Mature skin care is for reducing the revelations of age.
- Choosing products with soothing ingredients to smooth your skin and tighten pores.
- Stimulating only the dead cell turnover, leaving your ‘cell makeup’ undissolved.
- Plumping and toning for the sake of radiance and resilience without the toner.
Essentially, mature skin care products are designed to do what you may have always done, except with the nature of your mature skin changes addressed. But you must be more cautious than ever. Products section, this page….
What you need to know….
LIQUID CLEANSERS – You need a cleansing milk to dissolve make up, oil and impurities. You need a cleanser with a little bit of oil whether the cleanser is gel, liquid, foam or rinse-off. For mature skin care products with all the benefits of soap, you need a cleanser with a little oil behind it.
COSMETICS, NAMELY POWDER AND FOUNDATION – Even women with mature skin are better off to go without the coverup of powder or foundation which can clog pores, change the face with pigment discoloration and dry the skin. You want a skin care system that creates such beautiful skin you will feel you are better off without cosmetics overall. But whenever you want to wear foundation or powder, then you want for your mature skin the technology advanced formulas that do not clog pores, dry skin or change the evenness of your complexion.
EXFOLIATION USING CHEMICALS – Not the best idea. The ones that simply use chemicals are just dissolving the biologic ‘make up’ of your skin cells. When skin cells seem to be ‘removed’ prematurely, this is as harsh as a rough grit exfoliant. Chemical exfoliants such as Retin-A, glycolic acid and salicylic acid are not advantageous for mature skin or those who would like gorgeous mature skin when they are in that age range. Mature skin care, especially, needs a gentle scrub which will remove only the dead skin cells and deep clean your pores.
DAILY GENTLE SCRUB FOR EXFOLIATION – The most important aspect of your daily skin care is the gentle scrubbing of your face and neck. A mature skin cleansing program is often offered without the benefit of the daily exfoliation, but this leaves the pores engorged and the dead skin cells either damaged by chemicals or left on the surface. No reason for aggressive exfoliation, peels or microdermabrasion…. no reason for chemicals. No reason for mature skin to be treated harshly at all. Simply gently reveal the rich beauty.
The changes you are up against with mature skin care during the natural menopause eras. When your skin gets drier, the surface appears duller. The skin starts to lose the tautness, and lines of your expressions appear around the mouth and eyes, fine though these new lines may be. Mature skin means an increase in photoaging with the lines, unevenness and sunspots. Impurities in mature skin means blotchiness and a dense feeling.
Oh to have the velvety face of your granddaughter or teenager again. But you know, I am always admiring elderly women in their seventies, eighties and beyond who are graced with skin like fine porcelain, lovely wrinkles you want to stroke with a finger. This morning at the coffee shop, I wanted a camera, the woman’s wrinkles were so amazingly perfect.
Whether you have wrinkles or not, you want what we all do – those gracious revelations of your age. You know, you thought you had this handled, thought you chose products wisely. But now you wonder, could there be something better. Could your choices do more harm than good?
Where to Begin
Begin with prevention, just as you always have resolved. Prevention of exposure to sun. Prevention of dead skin cells layering the surface of your skin. Reversal of skin damage such as age spots, the dulling of the surface glow. You are countering for restoration of the surface texture and skin tone, countering dehydration, loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, fine lines and large pore size.
You want skin care products with ingredients like Vitamin B complex. Olive oil is often a squalane source though there are many plant derived. Squalane is a skin lipid mimicker that will create a sense of suppleness.
There is nothing complicated about antioxidants that will stop the free radical collagen destroyers from aging your skin. A topical Vitamin C source for antioxidant that will absorb into the skin surface and manage the skin cells is in the new and well-loved product Brightening C Complex.
The pitfalls of mature skin care are the ingredients.
My first attempt at mature skin care was age forty. Alpha hydroxy acid was the new ingredient hope. My premium results were whiteheads. That would mean premium clogged pores. Second attempt was an eye treatment. Three weeks into the bottle I developed an eye muscle twitch. I could feel it in there tic tic tic – tic tic. Stopped using the product, tic ceased. Some time later I met a kitchen designer with the same product and same tic. I do not need a research program to tell me I don’t want to use that product.
ESSA Natural is extremely conscious of the ingredients. If anything, over zealous in being concerned that the best ingredients are chosen for anything that goes on the body. This is considered preventative maintenance, preventative for aging skin and for health challenges.
Changes advance during the 40s and 50s and 60s
In a sentence, your skin can go from resilient and glowing to lackluster and wrinkled.
Hope is that your make choices to pounce on these changes and gain more momentum than the fine lines turning to cavernous wrinkles. But this does not happen, there is a sense of perspective and acceptance we are called to meet as women who are deeply blessed to even have lived so long as to acquire the wise-reflections of life in our wrinkles and aging skin.
During your forties, when we are spurred to develop supreme humor while dealing with the teenagers among us… while our hormones go through the tryst that borders some of us on insanity… our skin changes are primarily from those premenopausal conditions. Perhaps we are too busy to notice? Skin cells rejuvenate more slowly and the skin’s collagen starts to break down so the elastic tissue of the skin loses some elasticity.
Note ::: Peri-menopause can be affected by thyroid or can affect thyroid and natural progesterone may make a difference.
As your estrogen levels drop post-menopause – or are not counter-balanced with sufficient natural progesterone – your body is challenged to produce natural oils. Some of this is due to the reduced size of the oil glands. Drier skin results with the loss of elasticity. The eye area skin over the neck are first to show the aging… dark circles, lines, drooping or puffiness.
Somewhere between the early forties and late sixties, the humor and wisdom kicks in to salvage what is left of our physical beauty – because wisdom and humor, a gentle soul and gracious perspective are the essential making of beauty.
Beauty is more than skin deep. The skin, the wrinkles, the age spots. Those were given to use to learn more about ourselves. No doubt given to us to force us to gain the perspective of holding on loosely and for finding out resilience and gifts long stored away until the end.
But if we are going to have wrinkles of any sort, let us be glad in them. And let them be luminous.
Mature Skin Care
Mature skin care requires absence of the usual soap agents. You want products with ingredients that cleanse gently without stripping your skin’s vital, diminishing moisture. A gel cleanser that is not considerate of the effects the ingredients have on mature skin may cause dryness now when it didn’t two decades past. Over cleansing is the last thing you want to do when you are attempting to avoid the appearance of wrinkles. So you are looking for a cream cleanser or one with none of the ingredients that a younger woman is able to tolerate, even if you think your skin is getting clean by using it.
For normal mature skin…. cleansers with non-abrasive surfactants and fruit and herbal
extracts that won’t upset the skin’s protective acid mantle and Ph balance.
For mature, dry, delicate skin…. especially skin that has been exposed to harsher climates…. a lovely cleanser would be one with sweet almond oil, allantoin, silk amino acids, and soothing aloe leaf juice.
A facial for mature skin is essential. The more spa-like the better. Dry and mature complexions can feel powerful transformation with the right facial treatment. One that is renewing the intensive moisture you need, smoothing wrinkles and lines, exfoliating and nourishing. Watch the Hydracial Anti-Aging Skin Care System video here……
NEWAYS HYDRACIAL a facial for mature skincare
Mature skin care needs gentle exfoliation for radiance by increasing skin cell turnover. Some products include AHA or BHA, alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy respectively. These are acid exfoliation in the cleansers or lotions. There are also physical exfoliation products such as kernel powder from fruit stones or some grit-agent, though these are highly abrasive. A gentle scrub pad with the perfect milky cleanser for you, or a gentle scrub cleanser is simple and effective.
Aging skin does not need a toner. Unless your choose an organic and gentle toner such as cucumber or chamomile. Most toners are unnecessary anyway, especially since they are irritating and drying to sensitive mature skin.
Mature skin care needs daily sun protection. The sun can induce skin cell breakdown. You complexion will be come uneven. But this does not mean you need to take chances on questionable ingredients that may cause irritation or even the very undesirable result the ingredient is pro-offered to prevent. Such as… broad spectrum UVB to prevent sunburn-inducing exposure. And UVA for prevention of skin aging and skin cancer-inducing sun exposure.
Mature beauty care needs moisturizers. Whether your skin is oily or dry, a light, nongreasy daily moisturizer is essential. Superior anti-aging technology is now available to rehydrate and heal damaged skin. The natural moisturizer in your skin, your eyes, even your joints is hyaluronic acid, so watch for mature sin moisturizers that give forethought to this natural skin loss.

There are preferred topical antioxidants.

Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Oil… or orange oil which provides vitamin C to protect against the elements. Retinyl Palmitate… a form of vitamin A with a small molecular structure capable of penetrating into the skin.

Mature Skin Care Products
Neways Face and Body Care for Women’s Mature Skin Care
Introducing Neways hydrating, nourishing natural skin care products for maturing skin…..
Neways addresses all the factors for gently cleansed skin. Products correspond with fading skin, retention, aging discolorations, lines, circles, wrinkles, significantly-sized pores, mature dry skin, mature skin exposed to harsh elements, and delicate sensitive skin.
If you feel you need a foundation or powder, mature skin care is especially more effective when used nourishing, light diffusing TrueTouch™ Color Cosmetics which are fragrance free and do not contain questionable or potentially harmful ingredients. I definitely suggest the Neways natural mature skin care products. Select the products most appropriate for your skin type
Remember to question your hair care as well. Maturing women not only find their skin radiance diminishes, but their hair color loses its vibrancy.
Is it due to aging? Health? Abuse by coloring products? Build up of heavy metals and sebum around the hair shaft? Residue from your current shampoo and conditioner, or styling products. Thinning hair. Sparse hair. Lifeless hair. These can be a result of health challenges, hard water, product stressors or aging.
Natural Progesterone Cream
A product one would not consider for mature women’s hair and skin care products is the natural progesterone cream. But there are definite benefits healthwise and beauty associated when a woman’s progesterone is not all she needs.
Neways Endau Harmonizing Cream offers true and natural progesterone without soy, red clover or parabens. Your skin can be radiant again because you are receiving the effects of a progesterone that may have diminished considerably with age or thyroid challenges.
I think these are the mature best skin care products for women’s skin that is facing changes. Neways is an industry-leading company that refused to use questionable ingredients from their beginning, nearly thirty years ago. Their technology is always being developed to maintain their high standards for safe and effective personal care products.
