- From your mid-twenties onwards, actively seek skincare with anti-ageing ingredients. Dermatologists say this is when they begin to see women for cosmetic procedures.
- Avoid potent skin treatments if you’re in the 60-plus age group because your skin is thinner and more fragile, so there’s the increased chance of a reaction.
- Older skin needs gentle nourishment to keep it supple and conditioned. The Nellie Tier range, created by two Kiwi women in their sixties, is ideal. Try the Face Cream $38, a blend of oils, vitamins and vegetable extracts, or La’Bonic’s Pure Rose Repair Cream $55, based on organic rose oil. My mature-skinned tester loved it.
