Caring for Mature Skin: How to Protect the Skin As You Age

Caring for Mature Skin: How to Protect the Skin As You Age

As we age, our skin naturally matures, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and dryness. While it’s all a natural part of the ageing process, mature skin requires special attention and care to keep it nourished and to prevent further changes to its texture. There are specific ingredients that are ideal for ageing skin but how do you cut through the noise to find products that are tailored to your mature skin and everyday lifestyle? The list of anti-ageing products seem never-ending so we’ve compiled a list of favourite skincare essentials that you need in your daily routine

The best ingredients and products for mature skin


Peptides are a string of amino acids, which are the “building blocks” of proteins. Collagen peptides can help your body make collagen and elastin, while acting as antioxidants that help repair damage to your skin. Peptides nourish mature skin effectively and improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating collagen production. The Hunter Lab Peptide Anti-Ageing Elixir is a highly concentrated and readily absorbed serum which delivers maximum nutrient nourishment. This natural, lightweight, heavy-duty serum counters the effects of ageing and helps eradicate fine lines by promoting the regeneration of new, hydrated skin cells. It contains the highest quality essential oils to intensely hydrate and condition skin. It also fills in fine lines and wrinkles, and soothes and promotes the development of healthy new skin to combat the signs of premature ageing

The delicate skin around the eyes requires special attention, as it’s thinner and more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines. Hunter Lab’s Peptide Eye Renewal is a natural triple-action under eye concentrate crafted with peptides to address fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. It provides the key to a smooth, hydrated and youthful eye contour. Peptide Eye Renewal also works to maintain optimal hydration levels, strengthens the skin and prevents trans-epidermal water loss

Marine extracts

Marine extracts are another highly beneficial ingredient for nourishing and anti-aging mature skin. Hunter Lab’s Marine Healing Essence is a natural daily skin treatment to help reduce inflammation and free-radical stress. It’s crafted with natural oceanic actives suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The Marine Healing Essence features Microalgae, Bladderwrack and Wakame Marine Extracts to help calm, soothe and heal. Upon application the skin is instantly calm, redness is reduced, pH levels are balanced, and moisture levels significantly increased. Over time symptoms of inflammation are reduced, leaving the skin appearing even, rejuvenated and healthy

Hunter Lab’s Daily Face Fuel is natural nutrient rich daily facial moisturiser crafted with Avocado, Macadamia and Passionfruit Seed Oils to smooth, nourish without irritation and help correct skin-ageing free radicals. It includes Passion Flower and Wakame extracts to intensely hydrate and rejuvenate


Lipids are the skin’s natural fats. They act as a protective barrier that prevents the absorption of impurities and dirt, while preventing sun damage, promoting moisture retention, and aiding in healing the skin. The Hunter Lab Lipid Vitamin Body Oil contains ingredients that are abundant in lipids, including Australian Sandalwood, Kakadu Plum and Hemp Seed Oils. The oil leaves skin deeply hydrated, soothed, replenished and brightened


How to care for mature skin everyday

The appearance of your skin is affected by a variety of factors, including genetics, skincare, lifestyle, and environmental factors. In addition to using the right skincare products, a healthy lifestyle is also essential for maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin

Drinking plenty of water is essential for healthy skin of any age. When your skin is properly hydrated, it appears more plump and youthful, while dehydrated skin looks dry and dull. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day to keep your skin looking its best. Eating a diet that is rich in antioxidants and healthy fats will help maintain healthy skin. Foods that are high in antioxidants include berries, leafy greens, and nuts. Healthy fats, such as those found in fatty fish, avocados, and nuts, help to keep mature skin moisturised. Getting enough sleep is also essential for maintaining healthy skin. During sleep, your body produces collagen, a protein that helps to keep your skin firm and elastic. Without enough sleep, your body produces less collagen, which can lead to wrinkles. Aim to get seven to eight hours of sleep each night to help keep your skin looking youthful

Whilst prevention is the best course of action to delay the affects of Father Time, with mature skin we must work with what we have. Keeping the skin healthy with a consistent daily routine of skin-nourishing ingredients is the next best thing. Having glowing and hydrated skin – dry skin is more likely to show fine lines and wrinkles – will improve the look of your skin and help slow down the ageing process
