Hormonal fluctuations can wreak havoc, not just on your mood but also your skin. Bad skin can only add to the stresses of the menopause. With the help of skin science, we can help you use the right products that will help nurture your skin so you can get back to feeling more like you.
If hormone levels are actively fluctuating then you may experience oily skin, breakouts and open pores. Sudden temperature rises can also cause your face to appear flushed and red. Plummeting hormone levels result in your skin becoming dry, less firm, thin and sensitive.
Sound familiar? We’ve got the products to replenish your skin!
In menopause, skin can lose some of its ability to hold water, so skin can get dry more easily. Moisturising is key. But you also want to make sure you’re applying the right ingredients as some can actually dry your skin out.
Our top tip is to wash with a mild cleanser instead of soap!
For mature skin, soap can be too harsh and drying. Use the Buttermilk Cleanser, this nourishing milk cleanser cleans the skin without stripping it of its essential fats and microbiome.
As for moisturising, the Rejuvenating Face Cream is rich in amino acids, soy isoflavones and essential fats which help rebuild and protect the skin. Meanwhile, the Rejuvenating Face Mask is the perfect weekly pick-me-up. Rich in amino acids and honey – the latter helps draw moisture into the skin while rebuilding and protecting individual skin cells.
Loss of skin firmness
During menopause, skin can quickly lose collagen. Studies show that women’s skin loses about 30% of its collagen during the first five years of the menopause. When skin loses its firmness it begins to sag. Wrinkles that only used to show when frowning or smiling can appear more visible.
Our top tip is to apply products that are rich in amino acids. Formulated with a natural peptide complex with amino acids, our Rasayana Rejuvenating Face Serum can help rebuild your skin’s collagen and elastin.
Acne and oily breakouts are an unwelcome skin change that some women encounter during the menopause. If your current skincare routine isn’t helping, it could be time to throw out your old cleansers and creams and try something new. Organic Apoteke have created cleansers that soothe even the most stubborn skin complaints. Using natural, plant-based nutrients, you should have clearer, fresher skin in no time. No alcohol or harsh chemicals go into our products – we believe in the healing power of nature.
Our top tip is to use a gentle face cleanser. Many acne treatments are too harsh for mature skin. Our Active Face Cleanse Gel is gentle enough for all skin types – both young and mature – and can be used as part of your daily skincare routine.
