Understanding the Needs of Menopausal Skin & Reviving One’s Youthfulness
Menopause is widely considered a dreadful and fearful stage of a woman’s life that makes her compelled to feel old and as they say, ‘past her prime’. It is a horrid feeling that most women struggle with in their late 40s and early 50s. Their bodies start undergoing unexplainable and bizarre changes. Not only do they experience physical symptoms of this change, but it also effects their emotional health.
Hot flushes, lack of sleep, and erratic menstrual cycles are just one of the few symptoms that lead them to believe they are no longer youthful and as radiant as they once used to be. As a woman lives through her menopause during her forties, fifties and sixties, several hormonal changes take place in her body, and they affect her skin far more than any other body organ.
These hormonal changes not only bring about mood-related changes, but they also lower the body’s oestrogen levels, which decreases the production of sebum. Now, sebum is basically a naturally occurring lipid that provides the skin its natural oily coverage that prevents dryness and dullness. So, in the absence of natural sebum, women often tend to experience dullness of complexion, lack of radiance and signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
There was a time when menopausal woman weren’t catered to by the skincare and beauty industry, but those times are long gone. Today, modern medical and cosmetic science has given birth to countless products and treatments that can help you revive your youthfulness and feel young and radiant once again. There are several products that can help you maintain the radiance and beauty of your skin to revive your confidence and steer you through the difficult phases of menopause.
Remember, being old is actually nothing more than just a state of mind and a woman just has to get past these dilemmas and societal standards of beauty to revive her confidence, and feel young again. You will only get old when you want to get old, and as long as you are determined to stay fit, eat healthy and look after your skin, nothing can deprive you of your youthfulness.
