Mature skin

10 September 2022 - Skincare

A mature skin has a loss of firmness and elasticity. The skin also loses its ability to retain water and the sebum production decreases. The skin will become thinner, and dryer and lines and wrinkles will appear. Varicose veins will become more prominent and skin discolorations more permanent. 

A mature skin is a skin condition and not a skin type. 

A skin condition is caused by internal and external conditions like hormones, lifestyle, stress and exposure to UV-light. Other factors like surgeries, medicine or health issues can contribute to a change in your skin condition. You can suffer from multiple skin conditions at the same time which can change overnight. 


Characteristics of a mature skin
  • Loss of firmness and elasticity 
  • The skin loses its ability to retain water and produces less sebum 
  • The skin becomes thinner and dryer 
  • Wrinkles become more prominent 
  • Varicose veins become more visible. 
  • Hormonal changes can cause pigmentation disorders. 
    A mature skin can be subdivided in age groups: 40+ 50+ 60+ 
The skin slowly starts to mature from the age of 25. The first signs of aging appear around the eye area. Cell activity decreases, elasticity fades and discolorations become visible.
