How does menopause impact your skin?
Oestrogen is an essential ingredient in maintaining healthy skin. It activates oestrogen receptors in key skin cells, stimulating the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to promote healthy skin and a vibrant looking appearance.
As oestrogen levels decrease during menopause, the skin loses a large amount of collagen over a short space of time.
- 30% loss of skin’s collagen within the first five years of menopause.
- 1% loss of skin’s collagen in each subsequent year.
- 1% decline in skin thickness in each postmenopausal year.
This is the reason why as you approach and go through menopause, you’ll probably notice some big changes to your skin. Increased dryness, sagging, dullness, more wrinkles; it’s all normal. There is a lot you can do to support both your health & your skin during this time .
