What is a mature skin?

When you grow older, your skin may deteriorate in a number of ways. Wrinkles are the most well known (and there is a dedicated page about them with specific recommendations), your skin can suffer from discoloration, dryness, sagging and possibly thread veins in the cheeks.

Essential for ageing and mature skins

Aromatherapy treatments, and creams made with essential oils, can help to minimize all of these problems.

Stimulate skin rejuvenation

The epidermis (outer layer of the skin) mostly contains dead cells. The health of your skin actually depends to a large extent on the new cells constantly growing beneath it, which are going to replace the dead cell when they fall or are removed by massage/cleaning. The renewal rate usually slows with age. Therefore, essential oils that stimulate healthy new cell growth are important to counteract this. The best one are Neroli and Lavender. Both are equally suitable for older skins.

Dry skin

Ageing skins have a tendency to become less oily. That why women and men who were complaining that their skin was too oily in youth, are happy to preserve a young looking skin much longer. This is due to the fact that the production of sebum (which lubricates the skin) is at its peak in adolescence, and slowly declines thereafter.

Massage with such oils as Geranium, Jasmine, Neroli or Rose. Dilute them in a rich carrier oil such as sweet almond oil, which is good for dry skin. This will restore this natural balance and boost production of sebum. See the dry skin page for more information.

Dullness and crepey texture

Texture of the skin also changes when ageing. To counteract this, several essential oils are useful.

Frankincense and Sandalwood are very good oils for the treatment of older skins. Patchouli can be good too if you like its rather strong smell. Any of these three oils will help to counteract the dullness and crepey texture. You can use them at the same time as the oils for dry skin if you suffer from both conditions.

Thread veins

Thread veins are actually broken capillaries, and can be an issue for older women. Two essential oils can help: Chamomile and Rose.

However, it can take several months of daily application before real improvement is seen. Therefore you can use them in massage oils, but the most recommended solution is to add them in creams or lotions that you apply to your skin daily, as they really must be used very regularly to have any effect.

It is best to alternate these two oils rather than use both together all the time. The treatment indeed has to be continued for a long time, and it is better to change every few weeks the oil used, to avoid that the body get used to one oil and stop to react.
