Your skin is one of the first things that changes when you enter those menopausal years. Looking after yourself, let alone your skin can seem like a daunting challenge.
Your skin is likely to get drier, more vulnerable to wrinkles and fine lines during this time. You'll have the dreaded hot flashes, and acne may make an extremely unwelcome comeback. If you are looking for solutions that help combat these issues, but are unable to find ones that work for you, chances are you aren't looking in the right place.
Menopausal women can experience pigmentation issues as well. In this blog, we tackle the two most common skin hyperpigmentation issues associated with menopause and suggest products that you can use so that your skin regains its radiance.
Dealing with Hyperpigmentation in Menopause
Skin pigmentation does not only impact menopausal women. Your real skin can change at any time throughout your life. The most common issue with skin pigmentation, however, is hyperpigmentation, in which the skin darkens because the amount of melanin in that area increases.
Numerous factors, including acne scars, pregnancy, sun exposure, and particularly menopause, can cause hyperpigmentation to develop itself on the skin in different ways.
Melasma, sunspots, and acne scars are only two of the disorders that can alter your skin during and after menopause. Moreover, the thinning of your skin barrier and collagen loss, during menopause, act as accelerants towards hyperpigmentation.
Melasma in Menopause
Melasma, commonly seen as dark patches on your skin, has mostly been connected to different changes in female hormones. Melanocytes, the skin's pigment-producing cells create too much pigment resulting in the development of melasma.
The sun's ultraviolet light is responsible for stimulating your melanocytes. This means that melasma might reappear after the slightest amount of sun exposure. Hence, it is a condition that might reappear again and again. Using the right products that treat melasma is crucial to get past its seemingly never ending effect!

Acne Scars and Hyperpigmentation
Due to the increased quantity of androgens in compared to oestrogen, acne is frequently a typical occurrence during menopause. Our skin's ability to replace old cells and create new ones starts to slow as we become older. As a result, the appearance of dark patches and hyperpigmentation often becomes more pronounced with thinning skin.
