The needs of mature skin

After you turn 60, wrinkles are there to stay, but unfortunately skin ageing doesn’t necessarily stop there. The skin starts to slacken, the face’s shape keeps transforming, the epidermis thins and micro-circulation slows down. Your skin gradually becomes more delicate, loses its natural rosy glow and your complexion becomes paler. You start to look sad and tired.

Hydration continues to be the number one priority for mature skin to regain comfort and softness. But it’s also important to help your skin retrieve its glow and luminosity by exfoliating gently once a week to help kick start the skin’s micro-circulation and make it easier for the skincare to sink in. Finally, our thin and delicate skin needs to be repaired and strengthened to limit the effects of ageing.

Calcium, to help get recover density and elasticity

Calcium is one of the fundamental skin nutrients needed for the skin’s balance. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in our body: it makes up almost 2% of our body weight! It helps to reactivate cohesion between the cells, thoroughly reconstruct the epidermis, protect the upper layers of the skin and encourage the synthesis of lipids for better hydration. However, once we pass 60, our body can’t set the calcium as well as before. The result: the bone tissue is weakened and the function of the skin’s barrier is impaired.

Therefore, we need to give our epidermis a helping hand to regain its strength and create a more resistant barrier. Calcium can also benefit our body when it's applied externally! Skincare that’s rich in calcium helps to give our mature skin the nutrients that it struggles to produce in sufficient quantities. This skincare helps to replenish the density and resistance of the skin for a visibly more youthful looking appearance. That way your skin will get its daily dose of calcium to help it stay resistant, soft and naturally glowing!
