We whole-heartedly believe that aging is a wonderful thing, and an absolute privilege for us all, yet we also understand the desire to look our most phenomenal while we age. While it might seem like those wrinkles might be popping up faster than you can count, there are a plethora of ways you can incorporate natural ingredients into your skincare routine to age gorgeously and gracefully.
Throughout our lives, different environmental conditions and our ways of life can impact our skin health and aging process in a negative way from sun damage, pollution, UV exposure, environmental toxins, and more.
The result? We lose those ever-important proteins like collagen that keep our skin snappy, bright, and fortified -- leading to fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and slower healing. And we don’t want that!
Worry not (as that could cause some more wrinkles), we have just the set of sensational natural ingredients that can work magic on your aging or damaged skin or help to keep your skin healthy and looking youthful longer!
What Are the Best Natural Ingredients For Mature Skin?
Kakadu Plum Extract For Mature Skin
Vitamin C is a biggie for protecting our skin and keeping it looking snappy and happy for years to come. This antioxidant is an important coenzyme to the production of collagen, the building block of our bodies and the paramount protein for keeping us and our skin healthy. So keeping collagen levels high as we age is like finding the fountain of youth.
Kakadu plum extract, found in our Firming Day Cream, has the highest natural concentration of vitamin C found in nature. This wonder ingredient helps to stimulate collagen production, improve skin cell reproduction, and defend our dermal barrier against those nasty free-radicals that can destroy our collagen.
Rosehip Oil For Mature Skin
As mentioned above, collagen is the key for sustaining and improving skin health and appearance as we age. One micronutrient that is marvelous for enhancing collagen levels is vitamin A, also known as retinol, which works its magic by supporting the skin’s immune function better than all others. Think of it as your skin’s best friend that helps fend off dermal bullies like bacteria and free-radicals to uplift skin cell regeneration and boost collagen production.
And which ingredient is packed with vitamin A? Rosehip oil. Rich with vitamin A and other nutritional compounds, rosehip oil is one of the skincare superheroes that can turn back time on aging skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and minimise sun damage and hyperpigmentation. And that’s exactly why we chose it as a key ingredient in our Collagen Restore skincare products specifically formulated to revitalise aging skin.
East Cape Mānuka Oil For Mature Skin
Many of our skin challenges as we age can be traced back to how healthy and protected our largest organ of our body is. And defending it against so many different environmental factors can be difficult. So incorporating a versatile natural ingredient that can fight bad skin bacteria while improving overall skin health and defenses is essential to looking and feeling magnificent.
That ingredient is East Cape mānuka essential oil, our hero ingredient in all of our science-backed skincare products. That’s because East Cape mānuka essential oil is the world’s most powerful anti-bacterial essential oil, and the density of beta-triketones give it unparalleled anti-bacterial abilities.
This synergistic anti-bacterial, antioxidant, and anti-aging natural oil uplifts and fortifies your skin, promotes cell and tissue regeneration, beats back even the worst bad skin bacteria, and even shields against UV rays.
SPF For Mature Skin
While we love those sunny days of summer or bright shimmering slopes during winter, New Zealand is synonymous with sun damage due to our thin Ozone layer and intense UV exposure. So the faster we implement SPF into our skincare routine, the faster we slow down the collagen-reducing effects of the sun. Yes, please!
SPF, though not always found naturally, is key to preventing skin damage and helping your skin to keep looking great for longer. UV-A and UV-B rays cause damage to our skin and dermal layers, drying them out, burning, disrupting collagen production, derailing skin cell regeneration, and is a leading cause of skin cancer. Which is the exact reason that the motto of slip, slop, slap and wrap exists!
While implementing ingredients like mānuka oil, rosehip oil, and kakadu plum extract are some of the best natural ingredients for aging skin, SPF is a must in your skincare routine to prevent serious UV damage and skin complications down the road!
