5 Products to Help You Take Care of Menopausal Skin

5 Products to Help You Take Care of Menopausal Skin 0

Every woman in menopause knows about the infamous hot flushes. Most are familiar with the mood swings, weight gain and night sweat, but dry skin at menopause, too? How did that happen?

Changes in your skin can start becoming noticeable a few years before menopause, usually around your 40s, but sometimes as early as your 30s. Oestrogen helps your body to produce collagen and the natural oils that keep your skin healthy. As oestrogen levels drop, skin feels drier, and often rougher to the touch. You might notice dry, flaky patches, and your overall complexion may look more dull and lacklustre.You may also experience itchy and irritated skin.
