Posted By May
As we grow and mature, our body inevitably needs more care than usual. Eternal beauty moves and adapts with you all throughout your life milestones, so here we help you look into the signs of aging and various ways to age gracefully with time.

Signs of Aging

Ageing skin will usually have these tendencies that one ought to keep an eye out for in time:

  • Skin is more prone to dryness, wrinkles, blotches & dark spots
  • Less oil & sweat secretion
  • Less clearer skin (skin tags, warts, etc.)
  • Slower repair/healing
  • More prone to skin disorders
  • Eyes tend to change color, get crow's feet, become sunken and have more pronounced eyebags 

8 Best Skincare Tips for Mature Skin

These changes may seem daunting, but there are lifestyle habits that we can adopt to age more gracefully and slow/prevent those signs of aging.

Here are some great and practical skincare advice for mature skin from the American Association of Dermatology:

  1. Don't use bar soap. To reduce chances of skin irritation and dryness, instead use a gentle, creamy, fragrance-free cleanser or emollient.

Cream Wash

  2. Use a gentle, soft cloth to wash your skin. When you hit 60s and up, it's time to avoid using a buff puff or bath brush that can irritate mature skin.
