Why is my skin so dry and itchy, and what can I do about it?
As we age, menopause and skin dryness are common. This is because decreases in estrogen mean our skin gets thinner, drier, and less elastic. It also produces less oil, making it more vulnerable to environmental damage. Skincare tips for menopausal skin are as follows: you should hydrate, use lotions with antioxidants and a high fatty acid content, apply lotions and sunscreen more often, exfoliate gently, avoid products with sulfate, and eat lot of antioxidant rich foods. Also, check your skin carefully for changes that may indicate other health issues.
