Menopausal skin care issues can be effectively addressed with a good skin care routine and anti-aging creams so that your skin doesn't transform into a dry, wrinkled, sagging version of its former healthy, youthful appearance.
Post 40 skin has a variety of needs, particularly as pre-menopausal symptoms begin.
The sooner you start the more you will be able to prevent the acceleration of aging skin symptoms!
It's bad enough that your body has betrayed you and turned into an unexpected yet perpetual raging volcano complete with a red hot flush that slowly flows up your body to explode out the top of your head.
Of course, the hot flash inferno is accompanied by delightfully rivers of sweat that drips
and runs in a stunningly attractive lava flow throughout the day and night.
Then there's the fact that your memory has gone on strike, (or, at times, just plain gone), or the new crop of thick manly man whiskers start to sprout on the chin and upper lip, along with an unexpected game of hide and seek that you have to play with your libido.
In particular, during the onset and throughout menopause skin
tends to become much dryer. Of course, that's not too surprising given
the amount of sweating that occurs during those hot flashes and night
As beautiful plump, taut skin gradually begins to lose its moisture content and elasticity the deterioration starts. Fine lines emerge that gradually deepen into wrinkles accentuated by cavernous sagging folds that demonstrate a disconcerting tendency to jiggle when you move.
If all that isn't enough to contend with, be forewarned, acne outbreaks can return with a vengeance!
Now that your body seems to have completely morphed into an entirely different creature by transforming itself into an unsightly limp, saggy, baggy version of your former self it is time to stage your revolt!
The first strategy is to make sure that you keep yourself well hydrated by drinking more water than you think is possible.
Menopausal skin needs moisture, lots of moisture, to keep it healthy.
Yes, it means making more frequent trips to the bathroom but it is well worth it in the long run. The rule of thumb is to drink enough liquid every day, (water is best), so that the urine is fairly clear.
Seal in moisture after cleaning by using rich anti-aging creams jammed packed with nutrients, antioxidants and facial rejuvenation ingredients, repeating applications throughout the day as needed.
Misting the skin throughout the day will help keep it hydrated as well.
Next, refrain from using any facial products that contain chemicals, detergents or astringents in them because that will contribute to drying out the skin.
Using a nutrient rich toner to keep the skin clean. Washing the face once a day is sufficient for most skin types.
Exfoliating becomes a key element of any facial rejuvenation regime in order to stimulate new skin cell renewal by exfoliating away the old dead cells that collect on the surface of the skin.
Finally, it goes without saying that a critical component to menopausal skin care is sunscreen all year long. Protection against the UVA and UVB rays of the sun is a must to prevent further skin damage as well as to diminish the destruction that free radicals cause to the skin.
