As a result of hormonal changes and lower levels of collagen production, lots of women see changes in their skin during menopause, ranging from more lines and wrinkles to pigmentation and a less ‘plump’ appearance. Some women also experience breakouts or acne. A loss of fat in the skin can also cause a loss of elasticity in the skin. Other changes might include more facial hair and dryness.
In addition to the hormonal balancing touch therapies, there are lifestyle enhancements that can also help.
- Revise your skincare routine to adapt for the changing needs of your skin
