Mature Skin


What distinguishes Mature Skin?

Cell division constantly creates new cells, all of which are an identical copy of their predecessors. Normally, the split happens once a month. With age, however, the connective tissue fibers of the skin begin to break down, and the renewal of the cell slows down until at some point it can no longer divide and dies. You can read more about this below.

More about Mature Skin


Even though it feels like we’re just becoming an adult at 25, it’s also around that age that the first signs of aging start to become apparent on the surface of the skin.

As we age, the metabolism of our cells slows down, and our collagen production decreases. Collagen is actually a protein found in the extracellular matrix that provides structure to many parts of your body (including skin!), serving as one of the main building blocks for your bones, skin, hair, connective tissues, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. As the most abundant protein in the human body (one-third of the body’s protein), collagen is basically the substance that holds you together.


The aging process causes collagen levels to deplete naturally over time. A person’s biological age does not have to be united to the needs of the skin, but around 25 years the skin’s structure can already begin to change. Changes in your skin as you age are normal (and beautiful), but there are ways to bolster your skin’s healthy suppleness and integrate routines that are supportive of well-aging.

How to identify mature skin

Fine lines, loss of integrity and reduced skin structure affect every skin type sooner or later. Supportive skin care aims to preserve the skin’s elasticity and resilience, for as long as possible. Here are a few signs of mature skin:

  • Fine lines

  • Wrinkles

  • Sun spots & pigmentations

  • Thinner and less elastic skin

The fact that the body’s own production for maintaining connective tissue is decreasing does not inevitably mean that one is powerless against skin aging. Ingredients in skin care products that resemble the body's own "building blocks" are in fact processed by the human organism as if it had produced them itself.

Wild Leaves Tips & Tricks

Making the right choices inside and out is key to good skin. We can recommend not only applying skincare topically, but integrating our Adaptogen Drinks into your daily routine.

Timelessness is different from agelessness. 90% of how our skin ages is actually within your control and natural skincare (along with diet, lifestyle, and environment) can prevent some of the effects of aging. But the goal is to be timeless and not forever 21. Fine lines, loss of integrity and reduced skin structure affect every skin type sooner or later.

You'll want to customize your skincare routine based on your skin type. You either have dry, oily, combination, or normal skin: It’s important to balance the skin according to your skin type before and after you have reached the mature skin stage.

Moisture-binding ingredients: Just like dry skin, mature skin also benefits from moisture-binding ingredients that support the skin’s overall structure.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids: For mature skin, we like to recommend intensifying the renewing moisturizer with a few drops of wild rose oil in the evening. Supportive alpha-linoleic acid-containing oils help the skin to loosen pigmentation knots so that age and pigmentation spots fade.

Physical stimulation: Not only skincare, but also massages, face shaper treatments, and other applications stimulate collagen synthesis.

Daily UV protection: UV rays are a major contributor to photoaging (skin aging), destroying the skin's collagen structures and promoting wrinkles.
