The Importance of Skincare During Menopause

During menopause, hormone chaos can wreak havoc on your complexion. Your skin may become dryer and duller as cell regeneration slows down; blemishes won’t heal quite so quickly anymore, leaving marks lingering longer than you’d like.

Hormones can drastically alter how our skin ages and menopause is no exception. During perimenopause, a decrease in oestrogen causes changes to the complexion, such as dryness and wrinkles – making it the right time for us all to think about new skincare regimes that address this transformation!

Why is menopause skincare important?

Despite the fact that 1 in 2 menopausal women weren’t aware of its major effects on skin, many found their skincare products alone couldn’t provide them with confidence-boosting results. In honour of World Menopause Day October 2020, a special survey was conducted to explore this effect further.

Struggling with the signs of menopause? Don’t worry, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) touts many beauty benefits that can restore your skin’s former glow. However for some, this isn’t an option due to their medical history – don’t despair! Menopause skincare is here to help; simply identify what’s causing a dip in firmness and hydration levels then look out for key ingredients right at home.

What’s the Best Menopause Skincare Routine?

Here’s how your skincare routine can help address the problems that often come with this normal part of aging.

1. Cleansing

Facial cleansing is an essential element of self-care regardless of gender, age, or ethnicity. But for women experiencing menopause, it is essential.

OMNI WASH – ANTI-AGEING & EXFOLIATING GEL CLEANSER, The OMNI Wash was created to be an anti-ageing and exfoliating gel cleanser.

2. Hydration Creams and Serums

After you cleanse, it can be helpful to use targeted creams and serums to pinpoint specific problem spots. For instance, you can apply an eye revival cream to reduce the puffiness and under-eye bags that are often present during menopause.

In Conclusion
Menopause marks the end of menstruation cycles in women, but it may also mark the start of some frustrating signs of aging in the skin and hair. This is due to a loss of estrogen and collagen, which are two major components in healthy, elastic, and youthful skin.
However, using a skincare routine that implements a mild cleanser, revitalizing creams, and moisturizers can help prevent (or reverse) some of the damage.
Additionally, taking care to avoid harsh irritants or other abrasive facial cleansers can help to keep your skin looking and feeling as young as ever.
