They don’t call menopause “the change” for nothing and one of the most affected areas is going to be your skin. The good news is no more PMS – but the bad news is you’re going to have to deal with a whole new set of skin problems.
Don’t worry – you don’t have to suffer from menopausal skin and feel helpless any longer. Here are the signs to look out for and the easiest way to care for them at home.
When menopause kicks in, your skin is struggling to keep its last little bit of collagen and elastin. Since the age of 30, your skin slowly loses these compounds and menopause will kick that depletion into overdrive. This is going to lead to sagging skin all over your face and neck that will seem impossible to deal with. This is when most women start thinking about a facelift, but such extreme measures aren’t necessary to deal with sagging skin.
Instead of considering going under the knife, you can replenish collagen and elastin by using peptides on your skin. Peptides are special compounds that work to heal damaged skin and make it act younger than it is. The results of using peptides like the ones in our Repair & Release Cream are improved firmness, less sagging, and fewer wrinkles. That’s because we only use cosmeceutical peptides which are proven by science to replenish your collagen.
Dangerous Dark Spots
When menopause kicks in, your hormones are getting ready to go on a wild ride. Because of this, you’re more likely to start experiencing dark spots and age spots appearing on your face. This is due to your hormonal changes causing melasma combined with years of sun exposure. Your body and skin may be going through some unwanted changes, but you can protect your skin from dark spots and fade them safely at home.
Not too long ago, the only way to treat dark spots was with painful laser treatments that cost hundreds of dollars. We’ve come a long way since then and there are finally products that allow you to safely and easily fade dark spots at home. Instead of lasers, they use the power of antioxidants and vitamin c to fade dark pigments and even your skin tone so you look younger. Best of all, you can notice a difference in as little as 30 days of use!
Dry skin can be detrimental to your complexion and cause daily issues for you. In addition to unsightly flakes, dry skin can emphasize wrinkles and make them look worse than they really are. Dry skin is also going to cause problems when you apply makeup, causing concealer, blush, and eyeshadow to crease in your wrinkles and dryness. By combating the dry skin associated with menopausal skin, you’ll be able to keep your makeup and skin beautiful and healthy.
The most important factor when choosing how to hydrate menopausal skin is looking for a balance between science and nature. Natural ingredients like shea butter are some of the most effective for providing skin with deep hydration. In addition, scientific peptides like Matrixyl and Reproage will deliver wrinkle-fighting ingredients to every pore in your face to help achieve a more youthful look while you fight dryness.
