The great news is that you can naturally rescue your aging skin from the ravages of hormonal changes that will dramatically reduce menopause skin problems. (Honestly, that's the last thing you need when going through "The Dreaded Change" of menopause and hormones, isn't it?)

Hormonal changes during menopause don't just affect moods, sleep and temperature modulation.

Fluctuations in estrogen and progesterone levels also affect the tone and texture of the skin during menopause.

Fortunately, Nature has a Back Up Plan and
it doesn't involve injections, expensive
creams or surgery!

As you may already know, estrogen plays a major role in the growth and development of female sexual characteristics as well as in the process of reproduction.

Estrogen levels are also involved in reducing menopause symptoms, preventing skin aging, and many types of skin problems by:
  1. Preventing a decrease in skin collagen
  2. Maintaining skin moisture by increasing two types of compounds: hyaluronic acid and acid mucopolysaccharides
  3. Keeping sebum levels higher
  4. Keeping elastic fibers more limber and flexible
  5. Increasing wound healing

The impact of menopause and hormones occur when levels of estrogen begin to decrease skin collagen thins, fibers become less elastic and skin tends to become drier.

Cue the cavalry trumpets! 

Nature always works toward keeping us in balance, even when coping with the myriad of menopause symptoms and types of skin problems.  As estrogen levels decline it provides a natural, effective and totally safe back up plan.

Have you heard of phytoestrogenic compounds
(Don't worry, I can't pronounce it either.)  Suffice it to say that they play a critical role in curbing menopause skin problems as well as menopause symptoms.

Phytoestrogenic compounds are found in specific food. They mimic the reactions our own estrogen has on body systems, including the skin, helping to maintain youthful elasticity and moisture.
Some of the highest levels of phytoestrogens are found in these foods:
  • Soy
  • Flaxseed
  • Dried Prunes
  • Dates
  • Chickpeas
  • Lentils
  • Sprouts
  • Specific herbs and spices

These wonderful compounds are also found in a variety of colorful and healthy fruits and veggies, whole grains and beans.
