We know that after the age of 45 ovarian hormone secretion begins to diminish and menstruation becomes irregular and finally stops.
Although the changes undergone by the body during menopause, at the level of blood vessels or bone density, are known, the most important of all is the change to the skin. The wrinkles deepening and facial expression lines becoming embarrassing.
The menopause and the decrease of estrogen level in the body are responsible for symptoms such as dry skin, insomnia, hot flashes and mood swings.
The decrease of lipids level and along with it the reduction of water and collagen in the body causes the skin to become dehydrated, thins and it dries faster.
The skin becomes more sensitive, no longer as smooth and moisturized as early in life.
So, how to care our mature skin and look healthier and more beautiful?
With a low elasticity the various skin changes are more visible. Although the skin drying does not present a serious medical situation, it causes discomfort and can be unsightly.
The doctors prescribe us all sorts of drugs for osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, or other side effects of this cycle of life, but they do not recommend us to also hydrate our skin or to do physical exercises.
They do not recommend treatments by feminine desire, to keep the body in top form in terms of aesthetics, but according to other criteria.
From this point of view, the first thing to do is to use nutrients (day creams and night creams) in addition to previous years.
I wholeheartedly recommend Lefery day cream for a better skin hydration and for blurring the effect of thinning.
Secondly, the skin should be also helped through a more healthy lifestyle in which the diet plays a leading role.
Eat fruits and vegetables, foods containing omega 3 (walnuts, almonds, fish, carrot), do sport, how little, and one day a week replace coffee with a cup of cocoa.
The latter contains enzymes that improve blood circulation to the skin cells, moisturizing and helping the skin to remain soft.
Dr. Mary Alison Gilchrist, specialist dermatologist, tell us why:
“It is better to go to a dermatologist for an advice than to a beautician! And lately the people have started to come in increasing number, as they have seen how they are treated. Beauty treatments are professional made while the recommendations are given by a specialist who learned dermatology so many years and who knows what the skin means and how each device acts. If I should ask a beautician which are the skin layers I do not think he can answer.”
Dr. Stephen Henry Way, obstetrics and gynecology specialist tell us:
“People do not realize how much the collagen production decreases after the age of 45-50, due to estrogen deficiency. Women who enter menopause earlier are more affected. The creams with hyaluronic acid and collagen compensate their deficit and help skin to regenerate. “
So everything is in your hands!
Using quality cosmetics take care of your skin.
With an intense hydration at least twice a day – morning and evening – we offer to our skin a huge help.
