Are you going through menopause or perimenopause and you notice your skin changing? It’s pretty common. amongst all things menopausal women have to go through, they also have to deal with the skin changes, particularly wrinkles, brown spots, jowls and dry skin. It’s not pretty…
So how does this happen? Our hormones are declining. The production of hormones like estrogen and progesterone and testosterone rapidly drop off with menopause. So you can see these changes affecting your skin. So it’s gonna be the estrogen that most predominantly affects your skin. Your body also stops making as much collagen. You lose some fat under your skin and your skin’s elasticity starts to wane, particularly lower levels of estrogen, as I have mentioned, have a big impact on your skin. Less estrogen makes you prone to thinning, sagging, and wrinkling.
So what can you? Consider replacing these lost hormones, with bioidentical hormones or HRT, or phytoestrogens, or combination of the three, whatever works best for you. I have other videos on the pros and cons of these and how they can help you.
You can also include food and supplements in your diet that help combat hormone decline. You want to drink plenty of water and make sure you’re staying hydrated. Exercise also increases blood flow to the skin and body. So make sure that you’re exercising a few times a week, getting out there for some fresh air and you wanna make sure you go chemical free. Chemicals are everywhere in skincare, makeup, and they just dry out your skin more causing more harmful damage. Make sure you’re using a 100% all natural, chemical-free products on your skin to keep your pH levels balanced and your skin moisturized.
