The Skincare you need for Menopause

The Skincare you need for Menopause

All women will go through menopause, but no two experiences will be the same.

Menopause is a time in a woman’s life that is often unsettling, with a range of both physical and emotional symptoms. The average age that women go through it is 52 but menopausal symptoms can appear even at the age of 45, sometimes earlier. During menopause (which can take anywhere from 2 to 5 years to pass), estrogen levels fall while androgens stay constant – this can lead to a a whole host of unwelcome changes, such as acne not dissimilar to what you may have experienced in your teens, or wrinkles that seem as though they appeared overnight.

Let’s talk about some of the skin-related changes that come about with menopause, and what we can do about them, together! Discover 9 products to help you deal with menopause

  1. 37 Actives Extra Rich High Performance Anti-Aging Cream

    37 Actives Extra Rich High Performance Anti-Aging Cream

    Our skin doesn’t always do as it’s told, this is even more so during menopause. It’s almost guaranteed that lipid reduction in your skin will occur, resulting in the dryness often associated with menopause. This is also the time when years of sun and oxidative will finally rear its ugly head, so you may notice age spots, hyperpigmentation, dull skin and sadly, loss of firmness and wrinkles.

    Now the 37 Extreme Actives Extra Rich High Performance Anti-Aging Cream sounds a little too good to be true, but this toxin-free miracle cream, touted by dermatologists and models, really does walk the walk. It’s pricey, yes, but the unique formula is actually good enough to replace your serum, eye cream and moisturizer.

    Loaded with enough ammunition to repair wrinkles, brown spots, redness and sun damage, while providing hardworking antioxidants, collagen boosters, barrier fortifiers and moisture, this luxurious cream will deliver much-needed comfort during menopause.

    Yon-Ka Paris Skincare Emulsion Pure

    You may experience acne during menopause, which often occurs due to estrogen levels which are beginning to decrease while levels of androgen (the male hormone) stay constant. Ingest high levels of flaxseed oil where possible as it’s a great anti-inflammatory.

    Give acne the one-two punch with the addition of the Yon-Ka Paris Skincare Emulsion. This quickly penetrates the skin and leaves no residue. It’s an alcohol-free formula that will take care of stressed skin and prevent new blemishes from forming with super anti-inflammatory powers.

  3. Monu Moisture Rich Collagen Cream
    $45.00 Buy now with Skinstore US

    Monu Moisture Rich Collagen Cream

    Skin becomes thinner during menopause because of the relationship between collagen production, skin thickness, and a lack of estrogen. Cell turnover naturally slows down, and a decrease in humectants in the skin magnifies the problem of dryness.

    So in short, you’ll need a highly moisturizing cream that works in tandem with your skin to boost collagen production. Reach for MONU’s Moisture Rich Collagen Cream in this instance, which also works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    It contains essential oils rose, geranium and blackcurrant seed, as well as evening primrose oil which is sometimes associated with the alleviation of menopausal symptoms.
