Flawless in Flux: Unveiling the Skin Journey Through Menopause

How can the Menopause affect your skin appearance?

The menopause is a natural phase in a woman’s life that marks the end of her reproductive years. While most people are aware of the hormonal changes and potential symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes and mood swings, the impact on skin appearance is often overlooked. The hormonal fluctuations during menopause can significantly affect the skin, leading to various changes that may require attention and care. Understanding how the menopause can affect your skin can help you adapt your skincare routine and seek appropriate treatments to maintain a healthy and vibrant complexion.

Loss of Elasticity and Wrinkles

One of the primary effects of menopause on the skin is a decline in oestrogen levels. Oestrogen plays a crucial role in maintaining the production of collagen and elastin, proteins responsible for the skin’s elasticity and firmness. As oestrogen levels decrease, the skin becomes thinner and more prone to wrinkling. Fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes, mouth, and forehead, may become more noticeable.

To address this concern, it is essential to prioritise hydration and moisturisation. Look for skincare products that contain hyaluronic acid, which helps retain moisture and plump up the skin. Additionally, incorporating retinol into your skincare routine can stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. Consulting with a skincare professional at Imperial Aesthetics can provide personalised recommendations and treatments, such as facial rejuvenation procedures or dermal fillers, to restore elasticity and reduce the signs of ageing.

Dryness and Sensitivity

Menopause can also lead to changes in the skin’s moisture levels. As oestrogen declines, the skin’s natural oil production decreases, resulting in dryness and increased sensitivity. Dry skin can feel tight, itchy, and rough, and it may appear dull and lacklustre. Moreover, the loss of moisture can compromise the skin’s protective barrier, making it more susceptible to external irritants and allergens.

To combat dryness and maintain a healthy skin barrier, opt for gentle, hydrating cleansers and moisturisers. Look for ingredients like ceramides, glycerine, and natural oils, which can help replenish moisture and soothe the skin. It is also crucial to avoid harsh skincare products or excessive exfoliation, as they can further strip the skin of its natural oils. Additionally, protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays by wearing sunscreen daily is essential, as menopause can make the skin more susceptible to sun damage and pigmentation issues.

Uneven Skin Tone and Hyperpigmentation

The hormonal changes during menopause can also contribute to an uneven skin tone and the development of hyperpigmentation, such as age spots or melasma. Oestrogen helps regulate melanin production, the pigment responsible for skin colouration. When oestrogen levels decrease, melanin production can become irregular, resulting in patches of darkened skin.

To address hyperpigmentation, consider incorporating brightening ingredients into your skincare routine. Look for products containing ingredients like vitamin C, niacinamide, or kojic acid, which can help even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots. Additionally, regular exfoliation with gentle chemical exfoliants, such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), can promote cellular turnover and improve the overall texture and radiance of the skin.

HArmonyCa® hybrid filler treatment

HArmonyCa® is a revolutionary hybrid formula designed to create instant volume and boost long-term skin quality in targeted areas of the face. Combining hyaluronic acid with calcium hydroxyapatite, it’s a dual-action formula that can add immediate fullness and contour after injection and gradually stimulate collagen production for sustained results.

When HArmonyCa® fillers are injected into chosen areas of your face, you will see an immediate improvement in volume, as well as a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Filler, however, will fade over time, and repeat treatments will be needed to keep up your youthful appearance. HArmonyCa® offers a filler injection combined with calcium hydroxyapatite.
