Find out more about correct daily skincare regimes for mature skin.
Each of us is different, so is our skin. Different skin types require different skin regimes so it is important to know how to look after your skin properly.
From a cosmetic point of view, the skin is classified according to several factors related to its balance: sebaceous secretion, hydration and sensitivity level. Thus, each type of skin will have its own characteristics and require different care approaches. The type of skin is determined by genetics, although it will also be affected by other factors and can change with time.
Kalahari Lifestyle Skin classification looks at overall skin health and group skin types into 5 groups:
- Mature Skin
- Premature Ageing Skin
- Dry & Dehydrated Skin
- Sensitive & Sensitised Skin
- Hyperpigmentated Skin
- Problematic Skin
Many things change with age. Although we normally speak of mature skin from the age of 35 onwards, the starting age will depend on each person’s history, as the biological age does not have to be united to the needs of the skin. With the passing of time the metabolism of the cells becomes slower.
From a certain age the skin presents specific characteristics: the amount and activity of the fibroblasts is reduced, as well as the synthesis of collagen. Also, the skin dehydrates and dries up due to the reduction of the vascularisation and sweat and sebum secretions. Mature skin will also appear thinner and dull, with an uneven skin tone. There are also disorders in the pigmentation and “age darkspots” appear.
Environmental factors such as sun exposure (including extreme warm and cold temperatures), hormonal changes, medication, chronic illnesses, tobacco, alcohol, stress and fatigue or the lack of sleep have a huge impact on mature skin.
