Get rid of your menopausal symptoms, naturally!

Wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, dull, and itchy skin - you’re probably noticing all these changes in your skin as you age. After all, these changes are normal as you age, right? 

Well, yes. However, if you're a woman entering your 40s or 50s, chances are you are discovering that your skin—and appearance—are changing much more abruptly than you anticipated.  But that doesn't mean you cannot keep your skin healthy and glowing as you age! 

Let's examine the effects of menopause on the skin in more detail, as well as what women may do to tackle these new skincare, especially itchy and dry skin!

How Does Your Skin Change During Menopause?

Typically, your skin changes because of two factors as your age: Extrinsic or External factors and Intrinsic or Internal factors. 

Extrinsic factors like sun exposure, pollution and stress can lead to aging of your skin as time goes on. However, taking care of your skin by incorporating antioxidant treatments can help slow down the aging process. 

Intrinsic factors, on the other hand, is a normal process that takes place as collagen in the skin depletes over time. Collagen is the key component of the connective tissue that gives skin its strength and flexibility. We lose 1% of our collagen every year till menopause.

Switching to Organic and Clean skincare that is formulated for women with mature skin  is the best way to deal with the visible signs of menopause. If you want to know more about why Empress Naturals is the perfect fit for your skin, don't forget to read our Buyer’s Guide

Dealing with Dry and Itchy Skin due to Menopause

As your skin ages and the collagen production decreases, the estrogen levels in your blood reduce. Estrogen is responsible for the plumpness and water retention in your skin. Hence, a drop in estrogen levels can make your skin dry and brittle. 

Sudden changes in your skin because of menopause can feel like an unwelcome shock. Afterall, nobody wants their skin to look and feel dull, dry, and itchy. But you do not need to worry. Luckily, there are changes that you can bring into your routine to re-nourish and hydrate your skin and impart that ageless glow from within!

What can you do? 

  • Opt for gentle cleansers : ​​Your skin could get drier if you use too harsh of a cleanser on it. In order to avoid further drying, make sure you're using a moderate, non-foaming cleanser. Choose creamy cleansers that aid in protecting your skin's barrier rather than weakening it. We love Buffalo Gals’ Daily Glow Cleanser with Argan Oil!
  • Upgrade your moisturizing game: It is crucial to use moisturizing products that return the hydration back to your skin. Opt for products that have clean, sustainable ingredients, especially Rosehip Seed Oil. With its emollient properties, Rosehip Seed Oil encourages the production of estrogen in your body allowing for better water retention and eliminating dry skin. 

Get rid of Breakouts and Acne due to Menopause

Acne, breakouts, and rashes are also a very real symptom of menopause cause by the lack of hydration and subsequent dry skin. 

Pimples and blemishes are often a common occurrence that might appear due to the higher presence of androgens in comparison to estrogen. As we age, our skin's capacity to shed old cells and regenerate new ones slows down. This is the ideal mix for infection and clogged pores. 

What can you do? 

  • Check the suitability of ingredients: Every skin type is different. Make sure you use products that your skin is comfortable with so as to avoid sudden breakouts or rashes. Patch test every new product on your skin or wrist to ensure suitability of ingredients on your skin. 
  • Incorporate gentle anti-inflammatories into your skincare: Clean ingredients like Rosehip Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Geranium Oil and so many more soothe and calm your skin to help prevent acne and breakouts. Packed with antioxidants, these oils serve as anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating agents that help increase your skin’s cell turnover.
