As we age our skin naturally produces less oil, particularly around the eye area, and so skin becomes drier and more prone to wrinkles and creases. Our Age Confidence range will be the most suitable. The Pai Life blog has further tips for all things skincare, including "At What Age Should You Start Using "Anti-Ageing" Products?".
Below is the routine we would recommend people with ageing or mature skin to start with. Once we see how your skin responds, we can start to edit, tweak or add to this.
Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser
Thoroughly cleanse the skin in the evening by applying a generous amount of cleanser, massaging gently and then remove using the Dual-Effect Sensitive Skin Cloth. Dampen the cloth and remove the cleanser with the soft terry side only if your skin is particularly hypersensitive to ensure any residue from the cleanser is removed. The cleanser is a detergent-free formula and bursting with Omega 3 and vitamins so will clean the skin thoroughly without stripping away the natural protective oils of your skin.
Lotus & Orange Blossom BioAffinity Tonic
After cleansing, spritz your face with the skin tonic restoring the exact pH and biochemical balance of healthy skin. Many people skip using a toner but it's a vital part of the routine helping to lock-in an extra layer moisture for longer as well as nourishing the skin with essential vitamins and minerals.
Echium & Amaranth Age Confidence Oil
Apply two to four drops of the Echium & Amaranth Age Confidence Facial Oil at night and massage into the skin for 5-10 minutes where possible - there are some handy massage tips provided in the product leaflet. From time to time if your skin is feeling particularly dry or dehydrated you can combine with 1 pump of your moisturizer to provide a little more hydration overnight.
Echium & Argan Eye Cream
This cream will help to reduce the appearance of dark circles, hydrate and plump up the skin around this delicate area. We would suggest using half a pump for both eyes and using your ring finger to gently massage around the orbital bone area of the eyes. This motion will help to boost circulation and get more blood flowing to this delicate area to help brighten and reduce puffiness.
Spritz over the face with the Lotus & Orange Blossom Skin Tonic. There is no need to use the cleanser again in the morning unless you feel the need to.
Echium & Macadamia Calming Day Cream
Apply 1-2 pumps of moisturizer to the skin directly after toning. This day cream is packed full of skin-nourishing ingredients including Omegas 3, 6 & 7. Innovative Black Elder extract stimulates the skin's production of Hyaluronic Acid - delivering all of the skin-quenching benefits with none of the irritation. From time to time during harsh weather conditions, for example, you can add one drop of your Echium & Amaranth Facial Oil to give your skin a boost of active ingredients and provide a little extra protection.
Kukui & Jojoba Bead Exfoliator
This is a gentle and effective mechanical exfoliator. The completely spherical jojoba wax beads will buff away dead skin cells and help to remove impurities that have built up on the skin's surface. The beads are suspended in Kukui Oil to moisturise and condition sensitive skin. Apply a small amount to dry skin and rub in a circular motion. Once the exfoliator is applied across your face, wet hands and rub exfoliator further into the skin. This should create a milky, creamy lather which can then be easily removed with a cloth.
Rosehip Rapid Radiance Mask
After exfoliating, apply this mask to dry skin and leave for about 10-15 minutes before removing with a cloth.
Our skin takes about 28 days to renew itself so for best results, try this routine consistently over 3-4 weeks before changing anything unless your skin reacts badly to a product in which case you should stop using this immediately.
