Skin changes associated with menopause



The start of menopause also signals changes for your skin. The drop in estrogen results in the loss of skin elasticity and reduced collagen production (causing the skin to appear "looser"), which leads to drier skin and increased wrinkles. If you're going through menopause, you may want to adapt your skin care routine and choose products that are specifically formulated for mature skin. Increasingly, more women are opting for a more subtle, non-invasive approach to dealing with age-related skin changes to achieve a revitalized appearance. There is no one magical product available, but rather, a combination of lifestyle changes (such as a balanced diet, exercise and stress reduction) and a regimented skin care program that includes twice-daily cleansing and the regular use of enriched moisturizers will help you to successfully navigate this prime time in your life. Depending on your needs and skin type, look for products that contain UV filtering agents, nourishing vitamins, antioxidants, botanicals, exfoliants, and intensely hydrating ingredients that can help you to minimize the look of fine lines by improving the texture and balancing skin tone.
