What are the best products to use for menopausal skin?
Are you struggling to understand your skin during menopause? Menopause is the natural cessation of a woman’s menstrual cycle. While we might not be able to stop this from happening, we can help to prevent the hormonal changes it has on our skin. Here are our best practices for treating menopausal skin.
How Your Skin Changes During Menopause
Your body can change in many ways during this stage in our lives, however here are some of the possible effects it can have on our skin:
- Loss of collagen
- Weaker skin barrier
How to Restore Collagen Production
Collagen is a key component of any skincare routine as it promotes the appearance of strong, youthful skin. As we age and especially during menopause our collagen production slows which can then lead to skin sagging and loss of elasticity. Collagen is a staple ingredient when it comes to skin barrier repair.
Our Collagen Intense Radiance Activator Serum is infused with brightening and illuminating signature ingredients contributing towards visibly radiant and healthy skin.
Why You Should Be Introducing Retinol Into Your Skincare
It’s never too late to introduce retinol into your skincare routine. If it is your first time using retinol we recommend slowly introducing it into your routine. Start with using it 2-3 times a week and complementing it with hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and niacinamide.
Our Hi-Retinol Restoring and Lifting Serum is infused with powerful regenerating ingredients for flawless skin. It helps to treat oily, overworked, and weakened skin. While also combating hyperpigmentation by encouraging cell turnover.
Why It Is Important To Keep Your Skin Hydrated During Menopause
Your Oestrogen levels can fall during and after menopause which can result in dryness, redness, sensitivity, and lack of skin firmness. A key ingredient to look out for is Hyaluronic Acid. With its humectant properties, Hyaluronic Acid helps to lock moisture into the skin. It can hold up to 1000 times its molecular weight in water, penetrating deep into the skin to ensure that even the base layers stay hydrated.
Our Supreme Hyaluronic Anti-Oxidising DUO Moisturiser, delivers a concentrated blend of actives ingredients, including Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba Oil and Avocado Oil. The moisturiser aims to penetrate deep into the skin, helping to hydrate, retain moisture and instantly improve the appearance of fine-lines and wrinkles. Making it the best skincare product for dry skin.
Do I Need To Wear SPF Everyday?
YES! Our number one skincare tip is to apply SPF every single day, even in the colder months but this is even more important when dealing with menopausal skin. During menopause skin cancer and precancerous growths become more common. Continuous use of SPF can also reduce age spots and prevent wrinkles.
