Calcium - To Help Make Mature Skin More Resistant

After you turn 60, wrinkles are there to stay, but unfortunately, skin ageing does not necessarily stop at just wrinkles. The skin starts to slacken, the shape of your face keeps transforming, the epidermis thins, and micro-circulation slows down. Your skin gradually becomes more delicate, loses its natural rosy glow, and your complexion becomes paler. Your skin starts to look dull and tired.

Hydration continues to be the number one priority for mature skin to regain comfort and softness. But it is also important to help your skin retrieve its glow and luminosity. By gently exfoliating your face once a week, you can help kick start the skin's micro-circulation and make it easier for the skincare to sink in. Finally, your thin and delicate skin needs to be repaired and strengthened to limit the effects of ageing.

Calcium is one of the fundamental skin nutrients needed to maintain your skin's balance. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in your body, it makes up almost 2% of your total body weight! It helps to reactivate cohesion between the cells, thoroughly reconstruct the epidermis, protect the upper layers of the skin, and encourage the synthesis of lipids for better hydration.

However, once you pass 60, your body can't set the calcium as well as before. As a result, the bone tissue is weakened and the function of the skin's barrier is impaired. Therefore, you need to give your epidermis a helping hand to regain its strength and create a more resistant barrier. The main source of calcium for your body is your diet. Eating foods rich in calcium like dairy, seeds, and legumes give your body a healthy dose of calcium. But did you know that calcium can also benefit our body when it is applied externally.

Skincare that is rich in calcium helps to give your mature skin the nutrients that it struggles to produce in sufficient quantities. The calcium in the skincare products helps to replenish the density and resistance of the skin for a visibly more youthful looking appearance. For example, L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Moisturizing Eye Cream helps moisturise the delicate eye contour area and fights wrinkles. With regular use, the crow’s feet and wrinkles around your eyes are reduced and the skin regains firmness. The lightweight formula of the Revitalift Moisturizing Eye Cream revitalizes your skin and leaves it feeling fresh and comfortable. By using this eye cream, your skin will get its daily dose of calcium to help it stay resistant, soft, and naturally glowing!
