How To Care For Menopausal Skin..

29th April, 2019 by Kate Daniel

Here are a few ingredients to look for when choosing your skincare products…. 


One of the main effects women see on their skin following the menopause is increased dryness.

This is the result of oestrogen levels dropping during the menopause – the skin loses some ability to hold water causing dry and dull looking skin.

ADVICE: Look for ingredients containing hyaluronic acid (HA). With its ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water, hyaluronic acid is the most powerful natural moisturing ingredient known to science. Hyaluronic acid acts as the ultimate drink for your skin!

It is also beneficial to exfoliate your skin daily by using a product containing glycolic acid, as this will aid hydration and increase skin turnover to reveal a radiant and healthy complexion.


Skin also loses collagen during the menopause; studies show that women’s skin loses about 30% of its collagen during the first 5 years of menopause. After that, the decline is more gradual. As collagen diminishes, our skin loses it firmness and begins to sag, causing lines & wrinkles to appear.

ADVICE: Make sure you are using skincare products that contain retinol, peptides and vitamin C, as these ingredients increase collagen in your skin.

Many women will notice increased dark spots appearing on their faces, hands, neck, arms and chest.

Applying a skin lightening product twice a day helps to diminish these dark spots by reducing the concentration or production of melanin in the skin.

As levels of female hormones drop during the menopause, some women develop breakouts and problem skin.

ADVICE: Choose skincare products that contain salicylic acid, as this helps to clear the pores and is highly anti-inflammatory making it the number one ingredient to fight acne prone skin.

“Whatever age you are, the one skincare product that we all should be applying daily is a sunscreen as the main cause of ageing is UV damage.

Remember when it comes to skincare, consistency is key”. Andrea
