NAVIGATING THE EFFECTS OF MENOPAUSE ON THE SKIN
Menopause is as individual as a person’s own genetics when it comes to the symptoms and effects on the skin. All women going through this transformative period will experience varying degrees of skin changes as a result of the decline in estrogen and progesterone hormones.
With expert knowledge and the guidance of skin care professionals, there is a lot one can do to prepare the skin for the beauty of this new chapter. Read on to find out how to minimize the effects of menopause and give your skin exactly what it needs to be healthy looking and positively radiant.
What are the effects of Menopause on the skin?
All skin cells are shown to have receptors for estrogen and other hormones, which is an indication of the vital role these hormones play in the healthy functioning of skin. During the menopause transition, the decline of these hormones is known to shut down the hormone receptor systems in the skin, which results in the changes that women typically experience. Some of the significant skin changes experience during menopause include:
- Dryness (loss of skin, moisture, and plumpness) and impaired skin barrier function.
- Loss of volume (skin cushioning) and thinning skin
- Lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
- Acne flare-ups.
