How skin changes in our 60s and onwards

Post-menopausal skin can often appear pale, dull or lacking in vitality. Read on as we explain how your skin changes as you enter your 60s.

Thinness, dullness, paleness: 60+ skin problems

Skin texture and quality is a major concern for 60+ skin. As we age, skin starts to feel more delicate to the touch, appearing more transparent as a result of thinning within the epidermis as well as decreasing microcirculation. This can lead to skin appearing dull, tired and visibly dry.

Skin also tends to lose its youthful rosy glow, appearing paler and highlighting the appearance of dark circles and age spots. This is caused by a decrease in the number of melanocytes, responsible for skin pigmentation, as well a decrease in microcirculation as a result of thinning skin. What’s more, changes to the structure of the epidermis as we age lead to the skin becoming dehydrated and less able to retain water. This results in mature skin that’s often prone to patches of dryness or occasional flaking.


Restoring vitality to mature skin

Calcium works with the epidermis to reinforce the skin’s barrier and encourage lipid synthesis, while beeswax intensely hydrates and nourishes the skin - essential for drier mature complexions.

Also, adding a much-needed dose of rosy pigment for a healthy, rosy glow, in a velvety texture that glides onto skin for a nourishing daily treatment. Finally, IGEFYL - a form of yeast that mimics proteins found in fibroblast cells - reinforces the thickness of the epidermis while fighting against skin aging.
