Other changes to your skin will have become visible from your late 20 to 30’s.
Prior to penning all blogs, serious research is conducted to ensure we share as much information as possible to ensure we have properly educated you and you walk away knowing you’ve learnt something.
During our research, we discovered things a lot of people may not know.
Back to our first point, dryness in your 50’s, which isn’t just limited to skin, it’s your hair and let’s get real here, your private parts too.
This is all due to menopause. Many prepare for the hot flushed and night sweats but you may not know that falling estrogen levels can also affect the health of your skin and hair, leading to dry, flaky skin and lack lustre hair.
Estrogen is what keeps everything hydrated, plump and looking young. It is when estrogen levels begin to drop the skin becomes more wrinkles and dry and in some cases itchy. After menopause, oil glands in the skin shrink and less oil is secreted.
We don’t have a quick fix for menopause but we do have some great treatments to help you fight back and protect your skin.
