How to Care for your Skin During Menopause

What are the effects of menopause on the skin? 

Menopause, a natural phase in every woman's life, brings about significant changes not just internally but also externally, affecting the skin in various ways. Menopause marks the end of a woman's reproductive years, and as estrogen levels decline, the skin can experience increased dryness, sensitivity, volume loss and more. 


How to care for your skin during menopause?

The hormonal changes that occur during menopause can result in impaired skin barrier function, which is the first thing we need to address. Increasing hydration and moisture in the skin through ingredients like hyaluronic acid, alpha-hydroxy acids, lipids and retinol esters will help relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of a compromised skin barrier. 

It is common to experience more fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a loss of volume in the skin during menopause. This is why we always reach for our Vitamin A Step-Up Systems to rejuvenate the skin. We also recommend introducing a peptide serum for enhanced collagen and elastin production. 

Hyperpigmentation, including melasma, is also a common concern experienced by women going through menopause. While Vitamin A and peptides improves the appearance of pigmentation, adding a targeted Vitamin C product can drastically brighten and fade dark spots in the skin. 

 Finally, stay on top of your SPF and use broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
