Skin Concern: Mature Skin

What causes your skin to age?

Your skin is ageing in two ways: from the inside out and from the outside in. Scientists call these two ways intrinsic ageing and extrinsic ageing.

  • Intrinsic ageing is based on genetics (your DNA). The clock keeps ticking, no matter what you do.
  • Extrinsic ageing is based on external factors. It is the opposite of intrinsic ageing, as the time clock is under your control.

Many people don’t realise that skin age is independent of chronological age. In appearance and biology, your skin can be younger than you, or it can be older than you.

Nine extrinsic factors have a huge impact on your skin age:

  • Wrong (or lack of) appropriate skincare
  • Excessive sunlight/UV light exposure
  • Exposure to pollution
  • Climate (e.g. dry air)
  • Smoking

  • Inappropriate diet, e.g. too much sugar and processed food
  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Lack of exercise

The biggest mistakes people make when it comes to skincare:

Using a harsh cleanser
Harsh cleansers strip your skin of its natural acid mantle.

Using oil-free skincare
Use a skincare routine that replenishes oils and natural moisturising factors.

Not using a night cream
At night, your body recovers, cells are repaired and collagen is produced.

Ask yourself these questions:

If you’ve answered yes to any of the skin questions on this page, you have a skincare routine which is prematurely ageing your skin.

Transform your skin in 28 days

What do you get when you ask a PhD-qualified research scientist to develop a naturally effective skincare system?

The result is griffin+row, a synergistic blend of the purest plant extracts chosen for their antioxidant and regenerative properties. Developed from the ground up to address the visible signs of skin ageing, including dry skin and skin dehydration.

Why 28 days? – At griffin+row, we would like to give you better skin tomorrow. The reality is that there is no quick fix – transforming your skin takes time and effort, as many underlying causes need to be addressed.

Our skincare takes time to become effective, as skin cells take around 28 days to renew. Within two weeks, people will generally start to see change, but results will get even better over time. Our skincare is not a quick fix, as it supports skin’s natural functions at each level, and provides it with nutrition to slow down ageing.
