Look better during the menopause

During menopause you also notice that your skin is different. This is due to hormonal changes. For example, estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. This can cause sensitive skin, itching, hyperpigmentation and dryness. This therefore requires a different skincare routine. It is especially important that the skin is brought back into balance.

Menopause

You've been feeling different for a while now. Perhaps you're experiencing mood swings, disrupted sleep, or alternating hot flashes. The transition, also known as menopause, is a natural phase in a woman's life where the menstrual cycle gradually comes to an end. However, the initial signs of the transition can appear earlier, often during perimenopause, which starts a few years before menopause.  

Skin changes during the menopause

Maybe not the first thing that comes to mind with menopause, but alongside the familiar symptoms, skin changes are also one of the early signs of menopause. This is mainly due to alterations in your hormonal balance. Estrogen, in particular, plays a crucial role in skin transformation. During menopause, the level of this female hormone significantly decreases, unfortunately impacting the skin's condition. The reduction in estrogen production results in thinner skin and a loss of firmness. Why does this happen? Estrogen is responsible for stimulating the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, essential elements that keep the skin firm and resilient. As a consequence, the skin becomes thinner and loses its natural firmness, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Moreover, the decreased estrogen production can cause a change in the skin's texture. Some women experience dryness and a lack of vitality, often accompanied by discomfort such as itching and irritation. Additionally, the diminished estrogen can affect the skin's natural protective barrier, making it more sensitive to external factors such as sunlight and pollution. 

Skincare during the menopause 

Effective skincare during menopause is crucial to rebalance the skin when hormonal levels fluctuate. Soothing skincare products calm the skin and aid in its recovery. Additionally, the use of Retinol2ndG products is a must when collagen production decreases due to the decline in estrogen in the body. Why? Retinol2ndG, a second-generation retinol, has a proven effect on the skin. Retinol2ndG can safely penetrate through various skin layers and work at the cellular level. It stimulates skin cells to renew faster and promotes the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, Retinol2ndG can improve skin texture, even out skin tone, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Skincare routine during and after the menopause 

  1. Cleanse the skin with the Amazing cleansing balm. This calms and soothes the skin. 
  2. Apply the Retinol2ndG serum for intensive repair. 
  3. For the eye area, use the Retinol2ndG eye rescue. This eye cream enhances blood circulation, reduces fine lines, and gives a radiant look to the eyes.
  4. Next, use a few drops of Balance oil, or mix it with your cream. This oil balances and protects the skin.  
  5. Apply Retinol2ndG cream. This fine cream promotes skin recovery and provides intensive nourishment.  
  6. Finally, apply a layer of Sun multi protection SPF50 to protect your skin from UVA, UVB and photo-aging.
