In 10 years we have come across more than 50,000 women who have gone through Menopause and its side- effects. It is a natural biological process through which every woman on this planet goes through
Menopause comes with some pros – it stops the Menstrual cycle, no more fussing with tampons or pads, no worry about leakage and cramps but it also has some cons -Hot flashes, fatigue and your SKIN issues. Not every woman is prepared for this natural phenomenon.
Menopause marks the end of the menstrual cycle. In menopause, ovaries stop producing estrogen, a hormone that regulates the menstrual cycle. Estrogen plays a very important role in skin complexion. When levels of hormone decrease, concerns like dryness, dullness, prone to ageing signs, skin collagen decreases which makes skin saggy and loose giving aged look to the skin.
This makes middle-aged women stuck and asking questions from themselves- What’s going on with the skin? Why is my skin getting thinner and older?
We get plenty of calls, emails and messages asking what we can do to get back youthful and glowing skin? Is it possible that we can reverse signs of ageing? And many more
The answer to all this is very simple – WE ALL CAN AGE GRACEFULLY IF WE JUST FOLLOW FIVE BASIC STEPS BELOW
1. Hydrate, Hydrate and Hydrate
Estrogen helps to maintain skin barrier function which prevents water loss and keeps the skin plumper and supple. You feel that all products have stopped working but actually, your skin requires more hydration.
Our clinically proven products have shown amazing results on clients’ skin with ages between 40-50.
Our doctors suggest that the right day and night regime is very important to maintain skin texture and moisture as per our age. Our experts believe, only a personalised and professional consultation can accurately assess your skin and health concerns
2. Use brightening skin ingredients for blemishes/dark spots
If you are at menopausal age and facing dark spots on your face or other areas which are exposed to sun damage, you need to consult your doctor to rule out melasma, pigmentation, blemishes or skin discolouration and sun damage. To combat these concerns and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin, Our dermatologists recommend incorporating ingredients like vitamin A, C and E into your routine.
3. Protect your skin
Power protection from sun harmful UV rays is extremely important the moment you start noticing the signs of getting older. Also, the collagen of your skin breaks down and makes your skin saggy and loose. If your skin is already damaged, it will make it even worse. Our dermatologists recommend SPF 50.
4. Avoid acne triggers
Acne could reappear after the age of Forty, as the hormone androgen during this age can cause acne. Once we attained puberty completely this acne clears out with time, but YES…!!! It could reappear again but best – like eating foods causing acne such as refined carbs, processed food, dairy or fried not washing face, using wrong products on the skin.
5. Maintain a healthy lifestyle
- Drink plenty of water
- Eat water-rich fruits and vegetables
- Add antioxidants and good fats in your diet to nourish the skin from within skin diet
- Exercise regularly and load up on skin-loving foods like green vegetables, nuts, fruits and seeds.
