Caring for your skin during menopause

Menopause and your skinMenopause is a time of transition and, along with a host of other changes, it can have a significant impact on your skin.

When you reach menopause, the amount of hormones in your bloodstream decreases, resulting in physical symptoms which have a number of implications. As your oestrogen levels drop you might notice your skin becoming more dry, thin, or crepey.

Your skin will also have less collagen and elastin, which means more lines, wrinkles and puffiness, and an overall decrease in skin suppleness. You even might also experience late onset acne due to increased levels of testosterone.

So, what can you do to help support your skin during this time?

It’s not all bad news: there are some amazing cosmeceutical products available which will make a real difference to your skin. I always say it’s never too late to start, and don’t ever underestimate the results you can achieve using home care.

Cosmeceuticals contain active ingredients that are designed to nurture, revitalise, and cosmetically restructure your skin.

A cosmeceutical grade home care program should include actives with proven rejuvenative benefits to assist in managing these changes. Focus on moisturising, skin plumping, regenerating the epidermis and dermis, and improving the appearance of wrinkles.

Moisturisers should be extra-nourishing with long-term moisturising benefits, able to fight dryness and reduce the appearance of surface lines and wrinkles.
