What happens to your skin and why?
According to the NHS, the official line is that you reach menopause when you have not had a period for 12 months. This tends to be between the ages of 45 and 55 but can happen earlier. Perimenopause is when you have symptoms before your periods have stopped. Symptoms can include anxiety, mood swings, brain fog and hot flushes, which can all be very overwhelming to experience.
Before we go on to discuss how menopause impacts our skin, we’d love to remind you about our Balance Being Oil and Beauty Sleep CBD Concentrate. Buy them together and save 15%! They will help press pause and create a sense of calm in the day when you can feel anxious, as well as help support a sound night’s sleep and help prevent the insomnia associated with peri/menopause. Consider them your calming tool kit.
Now onto how to care for your skin…
A drop in Oestrogen reduces the production of collagen and elastin which, as you know, are essential for keeping skin plump and cushion-y. Try our Collagen Boost Moisturiser to top-up those collagen levels and help to give your skin it’s bounce back.
A decrease in Hyaluronic Acid on the outermost layer of the skin can cause skin to become drier, rough, itchy and irritable. From our Tri-Molecular Hyaluronic Serum to our Hyaluronic Plumping Mist, we’ve got so many products to help boost those moisture levels. Be sure to add this wonder ingredient into your daily routine.
Fluctuating hormone levels can result in breakouts and acne you might normally associate with adolescence. Help keep your pores clean and clear with our BHA Exfoliating Concentrate, PHA Clarifying Mist and Congested Skin Serum. Ingredients like May Chang, Moringa and Eucalyptus will help to create a more even skin tone, and those blemishes at bay.
