As we mature, our bodies become less efficient in producing collagen meaning its ability to bounce back and regenerate lessens and the prominence of lifelines and free radical damage increases. We think there is nothing more beautiful (or more a privilege) than growing to a ripe old age, however we also believe that we can slow the "signs" of ageing by choosing to live a healthy holistic lifestyle, including the products we allow our skin to absorb!
We’ve come to find some beautiful natural makeup products that dry and/or maturing skin will love! These products focus on bringing a radiant glow to the face and avoid any heavy powders or drying ingredients that may settle into fine lines on the face while working to cover, rather than enhance, the skin. Here are our top go-to’s to leave your skin looking as young as you feel!
