Why does the glow of youth dull over time?
As we age, we shed dead skin cells at a slower rate, masking the healthy new cells underneath. Dehydration causes rough, uneven textures and more noticeable fine lines. Apart from ageing, common culprits include over-cleansing, dry, wintry weather, UV exposure and pollution.
How can we get glowing skin over 60?
The best way to restore radiance is with a targeted skincare routine. Exfoliation removes dulling buildup, while daily SPF protects from sun damage. Moisturising is, of course, a must: brightening creams and hydrating masks all go a long way to maintain that youthful rosy glow.
Brightening skincare ingredients
Here are a few skincare ingredients for glowing skin:
· Neohesperidin – A powerful antioxidant that supports cell regeneration
· Peony native cells – Rehydrates while restoring natural rosy glow
· Calcium B5 complex – Fortifies and restores skin density and tone
· Niacinamide – Reduces signs of ageing and effectively reduces dark spots
· Vitamin C – Brightens skin while combating sun damage
