How menopause can change your skin care strategy

Going through “The Change?”

While you’re likely seeing your doctor for those helpful hormone supplements and changing up your daily routine a bit, you may have noticed that your skin tone and texture are changing as well.

The quickest and easiest way to manage this is to see your dermatology provider or skincare expert.  In fact, come and see us and we can help you figure out your new skincare strategy as well as making recommendations for skincare products to manage your new skin type.

In the meantime, inform yourself with the menopausal skincare tips for the dreaded sagging skin due to hormonal changes…and gravity.

You may have a reduced ability to remain well hydrated, so you will need to incorporate a richer, more penetrating moisturizer in to your beauty routine to fend off sagging skin due to a lack of hydration.  Drinking plenty of water, more than you did before, will also help with this and is good for your overall health.

One other issue that can be dealt with through the use of the right products is the lack of estrogen being produced naturally by your body due to menopause. Estrogen helps to keep skin firm and youthful in its appearance. This is one of the reasons why you need to add skin firming creams, serums and lotions to your routine as your skin can start to have a more sallow, loose and dull appearance as your body changes.

You can use skin care products that are designed to hydrate, moisturize, tone and firm to work through the skin changes you will most likely notice as a result of menopause. This is important, as even though your body is experiencing a natural part of the aging process, you still want your skin to look and feel as young as ever.

Still not sure what to do?  Come and see us!  We’re here to help.
