Menopause brings with it hot flushes, tiredness, and mood swings. It can also bring noticeable changes to your skin, leaving it dry, lax, and thin. With the right menopausal skincare, you can give new life to your skin and start feeling like yourself again!

How Does Our Skin Change As We Get Older?

Skin ageing is natural and inevitable, although many of us dread the change that the years can bring.

As we grow older, fine lines, wrinkles and changes in pigmentation can cause our skin to lose its youthful lustre. However, accepting the changes created by the ageing process is a thing of the past! EndyMed is a brilliant treatment option that guarantees results, especially when reducing the signs of ageing as it’s particularly effective for the treatment of sagging skin.

This makes it the perfect option if you’re looking to enhance your menopausal skincare routine.

What Causes Skin to Age?

As we grow older, numerous changes happen to our bodies. But what do these changes mean for our skin? Essentially, our skin is left with much less structural integrity than it once had. Many factors can also impact the rate at which your skin ages, such as the environment you live in, exposure to UV rays, diet, exercise, sleep routine and products you use. Any damage done by failing to look after your skin, in the long run, cannot be undone with your menopausal skincare routine. Typically, you will start to notice more of the signs of ageing when you’re perimenopausal.
 
Menopause typically starts between the ages of 45 and 55, bringing with it a plethora of symptoms, as well as causing changes to your skin. During this transition period, our bodies stop making as much collagen and elastin, and our hormone levels change. The most notable changes here are that oestrogen levels and collagen production drop. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, it forms a scaffold that provides strength and structure within the body as well as giving strength and elasticity to the skin.
 
Oestrogen also plays a part in this process so this combination can prove detrimental to many. This combination of hormones and collagen changes can cause sagging, fine lines and wrinkles especially around the neck, jawline and cheeks.

Giving your skin the extra TLC it needs can boost your self-esteem and leave you feeling younger, more confident and ready to take on the world again!
 
Making a shift to focus on menopausal skincare can be challenging but by making sure you hydrate your skin, use a cleanser and moisturiser that is right for drier skin, as well as drinking enough during the day, you can support your skin through the ageing process.
Remember, you still need SPF! Look for a broad-spectrum SPF and wear it every day. Products such as EXTREME PROTECT® SPF 40 provide multilevel protection against UVA and UVB rays, as well as being specially formulated to protect the delicate skin of the face to minimise the effects of photodamage.
 
I also suggest that you consider aesthetic treatments if you’re looking to improve the overall quality of your skin. EndyMed is a unique treatment that can target a multitude of concerns to transform your skin and boost your confidence. It’s a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that brings together radiofrequency technology and microneedling to deliver stunning results. EndyMed offers an amazing solution when it comes to sagging skin, uneven texture and fine lines.
