Menopause - we can't go around it, so we must go through it as much as it pains to say.

March 11, 2021

Menopause - we can't go around it, so we must go through it as much as it pains to say.

This one is for our Peri-menopausal and Post-menopausal ladies.

From the ladies in the Kate McIver Skin team who are not enjoying this Hellish time of Hormonal Days & Night flushes, we send our sympathy!

There are many side-effects to menopause, and unfortunately for us ladies, we can't go around it; we must go through it. 

Our hormones make their presence felt on our skin, so we thought we would share with you what we know and suggest - 

It all starts in peri-menopause, which can last for a few years this phase can be more unpredictable as you have surges of hormones and fluctuations are difficult to track and handle. When hormones fluctuate drastically, your skin can change when it experiences a drop in levels of Oestrogen.

Oestrogen plays such an essential role in your skin's wellbeing, and as it declines, your elastin and collagen will diminish too, and your skin can cause lack lustre, becoming very dull and dry skin. 

Dryness is due partly to the slowing down of sebaceous glands in the skin. The depletion of Hyaluronic Acid causes the skin to lose its capability to hold onto water, and unfortunately, it will look less plump. 

A decrease in collagen production, increased sensitivity and pigmentation are common. These skin changes might not affect you, and we hope they don't, but honestly, you will be in the minority, and you should count your blessings!

So, what can we do at Kate McIver Skin to help you remedy the side effects of menopause? 

Your focus needs to be on Hydration!

The obvious being to drink plenty of water and eat a well-balanced diet with antioxidant foods and supplements, which we recommend for everyone no matter their age. 

Regular time outdoors and physical exercise can both help to dial down stress and anxiety.  We have found as a team our Walks and Talks meeting have done us the world of good.

The power of touch and carrying out facial massage with nutrient-rich oils is a productive way of improving your self-care.  You can learn by following the expert Nicola Bellamy - The Face Fitness Choreographer Facial Massage on this link. 

You should seriously consider including into your daily routine the super hydrator, Hyaluronic Acid, and Essential oils that will help with menopausal skin locking in the Hydration. 

When your skin is adequately moisturised, it will help improve your complexion. Once your skin has a proper moisture balance, it should become smoother over time. 

Keeping your skin moisturised can also enhance skin-cell turnover and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

We are proud of the Hyaluronic Kakadu serum, which has outstanding multifunctional active ingredients for youthful, radiant skin and induces exceptional results on the skin-transforming the appearance of dull, tired and dehydrated skin.
