Menopausal skin comes with its own set of challenges. Although spots and unexpected eruptions are well behind you, your skin is in store for a host of other changes.
Although the body begins to produce less collagen starting in the mid-twenties, you may not notice it until you reach menopause. That’s when you’ll see the impacts of menopausal skin. This is when the skin also begins to thin and lose elasticity. Excess dryness from hormonal changes may make fine lines and wrinkles more obvious as the skin begins to sag, especially around the neck and jaw. The good news is you can do something about it.
Skin nourishing and balancing
The key to nurturing menopausal skin is hydration. Since your oil glands aren’t producing as much oil, your skin will begin to appear much drier than before. As a result, you’ll need to change up your moisturiser to a product that is richer and creamier than you had been using. You may also need to apply moisturiser more often throughout the day.
Also look for ingredients that balance the skin – phytohormones, including soy isoflavones and DHEA. These ingredients bring balance to hormonally unbalanced skin.
