The dreaded M-word : Menopause. Like most things in life, menopause can be surprising, confusing, and frustrating. Why? Well, because we lack the resources and knowledge required to deal with sudden changes that are expected but not anticipated.
Menopause is as natural a process as aging ; something that cannot be eliminated but definitely managed. If you're approaching the latter years of life, you’re probably finding that your skin—and appearance—are changing far more quickly than you want. But that doesn't mean there aren’t ways to maintain youthful-looking skin as you get older!
In the recent few years, anti-aging skincare has found new standing in the beauty industry. With every product claiming to be beneficial for mature or menopausal skin, it is extremely confusing for customers to find the perfect fit.
We have put together a list of 10 of the best and cleanest skincare items that will work on your skin keeping in mind its type, age, and needs.
Do You Know What is Happening to Your Skin?
When you age, your skin transforms as a result of intrinsic or extrinsic factors. Your skin might age due to extrinsic factors like pollution, stress, and sun exposure.
On the other hand, the deterioration of collagen is one of the inherent processes that causes skin to age over time. As collagen is the protein that provides our skin strength and elasticity, long-term loss of it can make our skin look and feel older.
Your body stops producing estrogen as you enter menopause. Collagen and elastin, the two proteins necessary to keep your skin hydrated, healthy, and plump are produced by our bodies using estrogen. Hence, this sudden change in your skin’s composition results in thinning and brittle skin.
Some Signs to Look out for to Identify Menopausal Skin:
- Dry, Flaky, and Itchy Skin
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Hyperpigmentation and Dark Spots
- Acne Breakouts or Hypersensitive Skin
- Unwanted Facial Hair
