Let’s talk Menopausal Skin.
Menopause causes many changes to your skin. Your body stops making as much collagen. You lose some fat under your skin and your skin’s elasticity drops. That, combined with dryness caused by hormonal changes, can cause sagging — especially around the neck, jawline, and cheeks — and fine lines and wrinkles. As oestrogen levels fall, skin can also become very dry, slack, and thin.
“You may have also noticed the older you get, the drier your skin becomes. After menopause and as we age, our skin suffers a slowdown in oil production and cell turnover. It is key to incorporate products into your routine that have Hyaluronic Acid, to help replenish and retain cell moisture. A key ingredient for brightening a dull complexion and erasing sun spots is Vitamin C, which helps treat and fight against free radical damage that causes oxidative stress and skin ageing.” – Dr. Maryam Zamani
Best thing you can do for your skin during menopause is to incorporate products that employ humectants, emollients and occlusives, like glycerin, hyaluronic acid and ceramides.
