As we age, decreases in estrogen mean our skin gets thinner, drier, and less elastic. It also produces less oil, making it more vulnerable to environmental damage. To protect your skin, you should hydrate, use lotions with anti-oxidants and a high fatty acid content, apply lotions and sun screen more often, exfoliate gently, avoid products with sulfate, and eat lot of anti-oxidant foods. Also, check your skin carefully for changes that may indicate other health issues.
Additionally, our HealthFix membership allows clients to work one on one with a Menopause Coach to create a personalized menopause plan. These plans look at holistic lifestyle approaches to combating symptoms.
