Tackling Perimenopause/Menopause

Everything you need to know about changes that happen to your skin during menopause?

1. What changes happen to skin during menopause? When a woman is experiencing menopause, she may notice a shallowed look to her cheeks and skin and facial hair around the lower half of the face. This is caused by a drop-in estrogen due to hormonal fluctuations during menopause and also a decrease in collagen and elastin production, which contributes to the deeper wrinkles and lackluster appearance often seen in the later stages of life. Thinned skin, loss of elasticity and increased skin sensitivity also often occur during this time. (Product recommendations are included in the Resurgence range)

2. Are there any skin conditions or changes that typically signal the perimenopause and likewise are there any changes in their skin care routine that a woman could implement or ingredients to look out for in skin care products?

As women approach the menopausal years, they are dealing with the full court press from all three types of ageing: genetic ageing, environmental ageing and now hormonal ageing too. It’s everything they dealt with in their 20s and 30s - fine lines, shallow wrinkles, sun damage and sagging - with hormonal ageing coming into play; even women blessed with great genes will now start to see genetic and hormonal ageing.

Hormonal ageing comes as a result of the gradual shift in your hormone profile and symptoms include a loss of elasticity, medium to deep wrinkles, dry and thinning skin with a dull or lacklustre tone. Acne will either be long gone or women may experience adult on-set acne as part of their hormonal ageing symptoms. Look for products that fight multiple signs of ageing in one step. You may want to target firmness, wrinkles, loss of collagen, dehydration and breakouts all in one go. Other factors commonly experienced are age spots and uneven skin tone on face hands and chest caused from environmental damage and hormonal changes.

3. Which Murad products are best suited for women during and post menopause?

Murad’s Resurgence line, was the first comprehensive line of products developed specifically to address the signs of hormonal aging. Resurgence formulas contain breakthrough technology that delivers essential fatty acids and plant-derived phytoestrogens to help replenish essential hormones that diminish with age and includes the Retinol Youth Renewal range which enhances collagen synthesis, firms and plumps skin, increases cell turnover and brightens the skin. Swertia flower extract also boosts skins resilience and increases epidermal thickness improving the appearance of thinner more fragile skins.
