As we get older our skin changes as it becomes less resilient, more fragile and sensitive. Because of this it means that we need to be a little more careful about the products that we apply to it. This is true of every type of product but especially cleansers which can be quite stripping and harsh to skin. The cleansers that we always recommend as being good for older skin are always natural ones, and when we say natural we mean credible natural skincare products like Nakin’s. Good natural cleansers that contain large amounts of nourishing high quality plant ingredients will always be our choice for skincare.
At Nakin we have carefully formulated all of our cleansers to be kind and nourishing to all skin types, including mature and sensitive. This is because we use so many natural cleansing agents mixed with nutritious plant extracts to hydrate and nurture skin, while still being highly effective at the same time. We have a gorgeous collection of cleansers to suit every need and this includes the products below.
- Our Nakin Natural Anti-Ageing Cleansing Milk is a kind and comforting cleanser that hydrates and nourishes with its soft creamy formula.
- If you prefer a foaming face cleanser then our Nakin Natural Anti-Ageing Face Wash is perfect to cleanse thoroughly but without being harsh.
- Follow the milk or wash with our Natural Anti-Ageing Toner that clears any remaining traces of cleanser plus detoxes and tones.
- We also have our Natural Anti-Ageing Exfoliator which uses natural AHAs to clear, renew and smooth the complexion.
Older skin typically has more fragile and often drier textures, so choosing a cleanser that will not be too harsh is important. A gentler cleanser with moisturising ingredients is generally the best choice for older skin. Oil-based cleansers like our cleansing milk can provide deep cleansing while also keeping the skin hydrated and protected from environmental damage. Harsh detergent-based cleansers with ingredients like Sodium Lauryl Sulphate should be avoided as they can strip away natural oils, leaving skin dry and vulnerable to damage.
Nakin's cleansers contain antioxidants which are beneficial for fighting against free radicals in the environment that can cause premature ageing of skin. We have developed hydrating formulas containing hyaluronic acid which is especially helpful for restoring moisture to dry, older skin textures. A gentle exfoliating cleanser like ours is the best way to help to slough away dead skin cells and unclog pores, for a softer and smoother complexion. Choosing the right cleanser is essential for maintaining the health of older skin and preventing further damage from occurring.
No matter which type of cleanser you choose, it's important to remember that less is more when it comes to older skin. Too much cleansing can be too harsh, stripping away natural oils and leaving skin feeling dry and irritated. Cleansing twice a day using gentle circular motions should provide enough cleansing without damaging the fragile barrier of older skin. It's also essential to treat and moisturise after cleansing in order to restore hydration levels quickly and protect the skin from further damage. Choosing the right cleanser, using it correctly and moisturising properly are essential steps in maintaining healthy skin as we age.
Using a gentle exfoliating cleanser like ours will help to remove build-up of dead skin cells, helping to restore a brighter complexion and promote cell turnover. At Nakin our cleansers contain hydrating ingredients such as ceramides, hyaluronic acid and glycerin which are all so lovely for skin and help to strengthen the skin barrier. As we said, using natural ingredients can minimise the risk of irritation and this is one of the reasons we are such big fans of plant skincare.
