As we mature in age, unfortunately, most of the structures and functions of our body components become less ideal. Nowhere are those age-related changes easily seen as on our skin. Your skin regenerates itself to replenish dead cells occurring as normal sequence of body growth and development (apoptosis). This natural function of skin diminishes with age. As the most external body organ, the skin is our mirror for viewing progression and effects of age.
Besides dryness, other notable skin changes commonly seen in adults as they age include: wrinkles, prominent expression lines, dull complexion, rough texture, uneven tone, visible pores, hyperpigmented & discolored spots, stretch marks, saggy skin folds around the face due to loss of subcutaneous fat, thinning of outermost skin layer (epidermis), fragile and easily bruised skin, benign skin outgrowths and skin cancer. The appearance and severity of these skin changes depend on factors such as heredity, lifestyle, diet and personal habits. Smoking is known to produce free radicals that can cause skin damage linked to early appearance of wrinkles. Dry and aging skin can also be attributed to excessive alcohol drinking. Exposure to sunlight’s harmful UV radiations can cause skin damage, premature skin aging (photoaging) and skin cancer.
Skin dryness is a constant source of worry for mature-age people. Loss of sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin as we age and reduced production of oily secretion (sebum) from these glands is the main cause of dry skin in mature age. Loss of sweat glands also contribute to dryness of mature skin. The water in sweat and oil in sebum provide the skin natural hydration and moisturization. Dry mature skin is usually itchy and easily cracks. Making things worse is loss of skin elasticity and density which makes the skin less effective as a barrier against germs and irritants. This increases the likelihood of irritation, inflammation and infection.
Since aging is a progressive and unavoidable process, you can neither stop your body from aging nor halt the associated skin changes. You can, however, apply conventional wisdom and skincare products to delay and reduce some of these changes. We have high quality natural skincare products specially formulated to help you address the worrisome cosmetic problems of dry mature skin.

To maximize the benefits of our high-performing mature skincare products and take care of various mature skin problems, here are some helpful DIY actions and skincare routine:
