Growing older is a fact of life, but did you know that you can have ‘mature skin’ while still in your 20’s or 30’s? Mature skin doesn’t mean old but is more a reflection of your lifestyle and habits. Smoking, a bad diet and even stress can all take their toll on the skin; making it lose its glow and youthful elasticity.
If you feel your skin isn’t acting its age there are things you can do to help rejuvenate it. A quick and simple fix is to stay well-hydrated; the better hydrated your skin is the less noticeable wrinkles and lines will be. It is also important as you get older to adapt your skin care routine accordingly. If you are still using an antibacterial face wash to fight acne well into your 30’s then you probably need to update your routine to reflect what is currently going on with your skin. A weekly facial scrub or deep cleansing mask is great for mature skins, helping to remove dead skin cells and leaving behind a softer, smoother, more youthful complexion.
And remember, whatever you choose to apply to your face, apply to your neck, décolletage and if possible the back of your hands as well. These areas can be a real giveaway in determining a person’s age as they often show signs of age too, so they shouldn’t be ignored.
You can easily make up your own naturally therapeutic face masks and scrubs with just a few simple ingredients.
Our delicately fragranced Aloe Vera & Rose Gel makes an ideal base for either of these facial treatments. It is suitable for all skin types but is especially beneficial for dry, sensitive or mature skins.
Aloe Vera is a natural skincare product in itself, helping to balance the skin’s natural hydration levels and to restore a more youthful skin texture and tone. We’ve blended this ultra-hydrating gel base with pure Rose essential oil, which is well regarded in aromatherapy for its soothing, calming and restorative effect on the skin.
Our Rose Gel is light, non-greasy, and beautifully packaged in a 250ml Retro Jar, making it an ideal gift (larger sizes are available).
The gel can be used alone to moisturise the skin or can be applied as a simple hydrating face mask. It can also be blended with other ingredients such as clays and exfoliants to create your own therapeutic face masks, scrubs and a whole host of other skin nurturing blends (See our recipe tab for details on how to make an hydrating and soothing facial mask).
