How to Have a Mature Black Skin Regimen in the New Year
Mature black skin? When it comes to you dark skin beauties, it's not always about anti aging. It's more about nurturing as you mature. For some of you, your skin will show signs of dryness. You might even see dull, gray, ashy looking skin. Then there are those of you that just need a basic regimen for maintenance. Why? Because your skin has matured very well for whatever reason.
Mature Black Skin … The Basic Skin Care Regimen
Cleansers - Without question, you’ll need to cleanse, tone and moisturize morning and night. Your cleanser will serve you best if it's cream based. Cream based cleansers tend to have No Detergents, which means your skin won’t be stripped of its natural oils.
Toners are for helping to balance out your pH level.
Moisturizers on the other hand can help reduce the chances of skin problems. Oily skin can benefit from lighter formulated moisturizers. Some even say facial lotions are better than cream moisturizers for oily skin.
If your skin is on the dry side, you'll want a rich cream based moisturizer in your regimen. Cream based moisturizers tend to have a higher oil content. This can be very beneficial for mature black skin.
Beyond the Basic Regimen for Mature Black Skin
Once you’ve got your skin care regimen on autopilot, it's time to enhance your treatments for your maturing skin. Bring on the serums, exfoliants and mask.
Serums are lighter in texture than traditional moisturizers. They penetrate deeper into your skin to deliver the active ingredients. Serums have been known to reduce the signs of fatigued looking skin.
Serums help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles AND they have the ability to help lock moisture into your skin. Known to be lightweight and notoriously highly concentrated, serums don't leave sticky residue on your face.
Exfoliation is one of those steps that helps in removing dead skin cells. As a matter of fact, regular exfoliation increases your skin’s radiance as well as its clarity. Exfoliation rids your skin of whiteheads and blackheads.
Ingredients such as activated charcoal purifies your skin helping to absorb environmental toxins. Red algae, tara fruit extract and Niacinamideon the other hand, helps guard against the damaging effects of pollution.
Masque are one of the easiest ways to get healthy looking supple skin. Facial masque can help clear up your skin. They bring moisture and hydration to dry and dehydrated skin. Want firmer skin and an even skin tone? Use a facial masque.
Mature Black Skin …
Doesn't have to be a chore to take care of. Don't fall into the trap of using what everyone else uses. Yes, you'll be able to use some products that friends and colleagues use. However, You’re your own unique universe, so treat your skin accordingly.
That’s it for this week. As Always …
