7 Signs of Ageing Skin & How to Address Them

Signs of ageing on our skin tend to happen gradually over time, and can be exacerbated by lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking alcohol, or sun exposure. Luckily though, if you’re looking to reduce those signs, there are products that you can build into your skincare routine to help ensure that your skin is at its best and most youthful, no matter your age. We’ve rounded up the top skin concerns for mature skin, and provided some solutions to help combat these including adding in our all-star anti-ageing products to your routine.

Pinpointing the Signs of Ageing Skin

Our skin ages due to a variety of intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Extrinsic factors include environmental impacts such as drinking, smoking and sun exposure. Intrinsic elements refer simply to the ageing process that takes place naturally and thanks to our genes despite our environmental factors. As we age, our skin naturally becomes less elastic due to less collagen production and the lowered transfer of moisture from the dermis to the epidermis as our fat cells start to shrink. This time also sees our natural oil production reduce, causing drier skin.

How to Combat 7 top Ageing Skin Concerns

Luckily, there are ways to target the common signs of ageing skin. Below we’ve broken down 7 of the most common ageing skin concerns, along with ways you can target and reduce them.

1. Dull Skin

Dull skin is caused as the result of excess dead skin cells that build up on the surface of our skin over time, coupled with a decrease in cell turnover as we age. This causes our skin to lose its natural brightness and glow. Dull skin is often known as one of the first signs of ageing

Solutions:

Hydration is key in managing a dull skin tone, as well as products that boost radiance. We cover all the bases with products like our Age Perfect Cell Renewal Regenerating Night Cream and our Age Perfect Cell Renewal Revitalising Day Cream with SPF15. Both work to stimulate skin cell renewal restoring visible vitality and radiance, making skin feel more plump after only a month of use.

2. Dark Bags and Under Eye Circles

For some, dark circles are an inherited trait that they’ve lived with their whole lives. For others, it can be a sign of ageing skin. Under-eye circles can appear for a range of reasons including lack of sleep, not drinking enough water, stress, and allergies. But did you know that thinning skin under the eye can also cause dark circles? As we age our skin becomes naturally thinner, causing the blood vessels under our eyes to stand out more. Puffiness or bags can appear in skin with reduced micro-circulation.

Solutions:

Ensuring that a good eye cream is part of your beauty regime is a great way to start treating under eye concerns.  Our Age Perfect Cell Renewal Regenerating Eye Serum is enriched with black truffle extract, fermented black tea, and caffeine. It works to stimulate cell renewal under the eyes and to deflate puffy under-eyes on mature skin. It also helps with other eye-related skin concerns such as crow’s feet and crepiness.

3. Dry Flaky Skin

As we mature, our natural oil production also starts to slow down. This results in drier, flakier skin. Dry skin can also cause an array of other skin conditions including peeling, redness and sensitivity.

Solutions:

Using products with hyaluronic acid in them is a great way to restore the skin’s moisture. Concentrated serums such as the Filler Hyaluronic Acid 1.5% HA Serum  help to intensely hydrate and smooth skin surface whilst replacing moisture with 2 forms of pure Hyaluronic Acid.

4. Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Wrinkles and fine lines are a natural part of the ageing process. The first area where they tend to pop up are parts of our face where we naturally fold our skin like the corners of the eyes, on the forehead, and around the mouth. Managing your wrinkles and fine lines from an earlier age is key to ensuring that they do not become deeper over time.

Solutions:

As well as avoiding habits like smoking, excessive drinking, and sun exposure, using a powerful night serum that visibly targets anti-ageing is the way to go. Try our Revitalift Laser Pure Retinol Night Serum that visibly reduces wrinkles, even the deep ones, and improves skin clarity and texture.

5. Crow’s Feet Wrinkles 

Crow’s feet wrinkles are the small fine lines that appear over time on the corner of the eyes. The constant movement of our eyes and the thin skin in this area cause these small lines to become more noticeable, with deeper lines appearing the older we become. They are exacerbated by UV exposure and the loss of collagen as we age. If you’re bothered by your crow’s feet, there are multiple ways to address them.

Solutions:

To help reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, we recommend trying our Revitalift Filler Hyaluronic Acid Replumping Eye Cream. This formula contains the highest amount of hyaluronic acid available in our products, effectively reducing signs of ageing around the eyes for radiant skin.

6. Eleven Lines

Eleven lines are the lines that appear in between your eyebrows and above your nose, that often resemble the number 11. These can be exacerbated over time by the way your face may naturally frown. The appearance of these lines can be addressed through use of the right type of age-fighting facial moisturiser.

Solutions:

Give your skin some TLC with the Age Perfect Golden Age Re-Densifying Night Cream, designed to fight wrinkles by rehydrating the skin, redefining facial contours overnight. For the daytime, try our Golden Age Rosy Re-Densifying Day Cream for an extra kick.

7. Age Spots

Another very common ageing skin concern is age spots. Age spots are the dark spots that can begin to appear over time - especially for those that spend a lot of time outdoors in the sun. If you’re looking to avoid the onset of age spots, sun protection is key. This includes remembering to wear a broad spectrum sunscreen everyday (factor 15 or over) wearing a hat, and avoiding peak sun periods.

Solutions:

Make it easy for yourself by ensuring that your day cream or moisturiser has a SPF. Our classic Revitalift Laser SPF15 Day Cream contains SPF 15 UVA/UVB filters for broad spectrum protection to keep age spots at bay!
