Mature skin is generally defined as skin that is showing signs of ageing. People 40 and over are usually considered to have mature skin, but this is a broad definition - some people’s skin shows signs of ageing earlier, while others exhibit them later.
Mature skin is the result of the passage of time on our bodies’ biggest organ, while external factors also play a part.
Chronological ageing is the body’s natural response to growing older. Photoaging, however, is the result of sun and free radicals damage that accelerate the ageing process, particularly in exposed areas, such as the face and arms.
Over time, harmful UV rays and environmental factors damage skin cells, and skin that has been exposed to them is more likely to mature sooner.
