Skincare & repair for menopausal women

Did you know that 47 million women around the world start menopause each year? Menopause is triggered by hormonal changes in the ageing body, bringing with it a host of problems such as weight gain, hot flushes, anxiety, insomnia, and mood changes – not to mention the issues menopause can cause in the skin!

A great thing women can do to reduce stress levels and find their bodies’ new “normal” is to indulge in some self-care, which is often essential at this major transition in a woman’s life.

As women age, their collagen and oestrogen levels drop. In fact, their skin can lose up to 30 per cent of its collagen in the first five years of menopause. This can quickly cause dryness, wrinkles, skin sagging, and a dull complexion.

This is why many women’s skincare regime often needs to change pre- and post-menopause. This might mean switching up their everyday skincare products or looking into skin repair and rejuvenation treatments such as hydrating facials, microdermabrasion, LED light therapy, and more.

Some women then transition to a more long-term approach to managing their skin health, such as injectables to treat wrinkles, sagging skin, dark under-eye circles, and more. These treatments are best started pre-menopause, but the right treatment plan can be found for women of any age.
