Health & Beauty : Mature skin care is easy if you know how and “why”
(NC)-Younger-looking skin is important to many people – and according to an Olay survey of 6,000 women around the world, women felt their skin would look younger if they could minimize these seven signs of aging: fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin texture, uneven skin tone, skin dullness, visible pores, blotches and age spots, and skin dryness.
The rate at which our skin changes, says Olay Scientist Lauren Thaman-Hodges, is dependent to some extent on what we inherit in the first place and on how we look after it. Understanding the changes that occur in the cells and layers of the skin as we age helps us to understand why skin looks as it does, and how we can protect or alter this appearance, she explains.
- As we age, the skin’s renewal process becomes less efficient and the exfoliation of old skin cells slows down making skin feel rougher.
- The epidermis gradually gets less translucent and looks duller.
- Collagen and elastin production decreases; the skin becomes thinner and loses much of its flexibility, resulting in wrinkles.
- Cumulative sun exposure over many decades can result in blotches and age spots.

The skin around our eyes is one of the first places to show signs of aging. The skin here is very thin and delicate, and so wrinkles are more likely to form. Now you can give your eyes special attention with Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream, which contains vitaniacin, and helps give the eye area a radiant glow.
Olay Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum is an anti-aging serum with an amino-peptide complex. It works to help alter the appearance of eye skin as a skin brightener and moisturizer. It is also blended, says Olay scientist Thaman-Hodges, with cucumber extract.
