Aging skin skincare

What is happening to your skin as you age? 

When you age, your skin frequently changes as a consequence of intrinsic or extrinsic factors. Extrinsic factors include aspects like pollution, stress, and sun exposure. On the other hand, the deterioration of collagen is one of the inherent processes that causes skin to gradually age over time.

Collagen, being the protein that gives your skin strength and elasticity, is responsible for making your skin look and feel youthful! 

Why does collagen production reduce in our body? 

Collagen is produced by the estrogen hormone in our body. As we age, our ovaries stop the production of estrogen leading to a drastic drop in the collagen production in our body. This sudden drop and consequent hormonal changes are what lead to the seemingly frustrating changes in our skin, body, and mood. 

What can you do?

Nourishing your body with the appropriate nutrients and habits can help you restore your skin's glow . The simplest way to alleviate the visible symptoms of menopause is to adopt a non-toxic lifestyle with natural remedies and skincare that are created for women with mature skin.

Natural Remedies to Tackle Menopause 

Small changes you can make to make the menopausal journey easier!

Stack up on fruits and vegetables

Many menopause symptoms can be avoided with a diet high in fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are excellent for weight maintenance because they are relatively low in calories, making you feel full for longer. 

They might also aid in the prevention of certain illnesses, including heart disease. This is crucial because the risk of heart disease tends to rise after menopause. Age, weight increase, or possibly lower estrogen levels may be to blame for this.

Exercise regularly

Evidence backs the additional advantages of consistent exercise in  increasing metabolism and energy, having stronger bones and joints, less stress, and better quality of sleep.

In addition to improving overall health, regular exercise has been linked to lower risk of developing diseases and disorders like heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and obesity. 

Water, Water, Water

Dry skin and dryness in general is a major symptom of menopause. Loss of estrogen is the main reason for this pesky symptom. Water consumption of 8–12 glasses per day helps alleviate these symptoms.

Additionally, drinking water can lessen the bloating brought on by hormonal changes.

Avoid sugar and processed food

A diet overloaded in sugar and refined carbohydrates can cause your blood sugar to fluctuate dramatically, leaving you exhausted and agitated. This could make menopause symptoms—both physical and psychological—worse.

In particular, if processed foods are superseding the nutrients you require from a balanced meal, diets containing a lot of processed foods may have an adverse effect on bone health.

Additionally, these foods have been linked to mood swings, nightly sweats, and hot flashes. Caffeine and alcohol are examples of common triggers.

Protect your bones

Menopause-related hormonal changes can weaken bones and increase the likelihood of developing osteoporosis. Dairy items like yogurt, milk, and cheese are among the many foods that are high in calcium. Calcium is also abundant in green, leafy vegetables like kale and spinach.

Vitamin D, on the other hand, can be tricky. Sunlight is your best source of Vitamin D but is also responsible for aging skin. Foods that can help increase your Vitamin D levels include fish, eggs, and supplements rich in Vitamin D.
