Aging is something that most people can’t reconcile with, particularly with regard to the deterioration of personal looks and appearance. Most of us dread the imminent wrinkles, under eye bags, and the tired looks that aging brings with it.

Then how can we age gracefully? Simple. By keeping our skin in top shape with preventive skincare, and by accepting our bodily changes calmly. 

Anti aging skincare is a booming industry with skincare and cosmetic products, that promise youthful looks, flooding the counters of beauty stores. But how does one know which product will really work? And which one will be safe to use?

Here we discuss what the common signs of skin aging are, and also get to know how to select the best anti aging cream.

What is Skin Aging?


With age, our skin cell turnover process, or the rate at which new skin cells replace the old ones, slows down. Collagen production reduces too, and as a result, dead skin cells stay on the surface of the skin longer, making it look dull and leathery. 

The following signs of aging show up on the skin from the time we cross our thirties:

  • Age spots or sun spots

  • Dry or dehydrated skin, dull skin

  • Fine lines, wrinkles

  • Sagging skin due to loss of elastin

  • Under eye puffiness and dark circles

  • Thinning of the epidermis leading to creases and furrows on the face

Certain factors like sun damage, oxidative stress, pollution, unhealthy eating, smoking, too much alcohol consumption speed up aging, and cause premature wrinkles and dark circles.

Men’s skin ages at a slightly lower rate than that of women’s, but once the process starts, there is faster degeneration. Wrinkles and frown lines become deeply entrenched, and skin looks dull, tired and sagging. 

Mature skin needs a detailed anti aging skincare routine to keep away these signs of aging.

Skincare Tips for Mature Skin


From the time we enter middle-age, our skin starts losing moisture and there is lesser collagen and sebum production. Chemical laden cosmetic products are a strict no-no, as matured skin needs careful handling and natural skincare.

The following steps would be beneficial:

  • It is best to avoid soaps that disturb the skin’s natural pH balance, and switch to gentle face cleansers that protect the skin’s barrier from dehydration.

  • Using a chemical exfoliant to exfoliate skin is better for mature skin. Exfoliants with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) like glycolic and lactic acid are effective.

  • An anti aging cream with Vitamin C or Vitamin A derivatives works well in providing antioxidant protection, and helps in increasing collagen production.

  • Skin dehydration needs to be combated with extensive deep moisturizing. Since skin produces lesser sebum than earlier, humectants like Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerine are effective.

  • Never venture outdoors without protecting skin from possible UV damage. A sunscreen lotion or moisturizer, with SPF of 30 or more, is a must while going out during daytime.

Kiehl’s, the trusted name in skincare solutions, has an excellent anti aging cream  - Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream, that is loaded with Copper PCA and  Calcium PCA. This fortifying anti-wrinkle face cream helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while helping to smoothen rough and dull skin.  It also increases skin elasticity and strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier.

There is something special for men too. Kiehl’s Age Defender Moisturizer is the best men’s anti aging cream, formulated with Linseed Extract and Caffeine. It is a safe solution, enriched with vitamin C and E, that can tackle the loss of elasticity and the appearance of fine lines, and moisturize to add a healthy glow to dull skin.

With age, our skin needs more care. It helps to select the best anti aging creams to pamper and nourish mature skin. Skin that is looked after, looks younger!
