After menopause, hormonal changes can lead to a variety of skin issues, including dryness, loss of elasticity, and increased sensitivity. A tailored skincare routine can help:
Opt for a hydrating, sulfate-free cleanser that will clean your skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
Use a serum rich in antioxidants like vitamin C to protect your skin from environmental damage and to brighten your complexion.
Choose a moisturizer that's rich in hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, and make sure it includes broad-spectrum SPF of at least 30.
Use an eye cream that targets your specific concerns, whether it's dark circles, puffiness, or crow's feet.
Start with an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup and sunscreen, followed by your gentle cleanser to clean the skin.
At night, opt for a serum that addresses your specific concerns. Retinol can be effective for anti-aging.
Use a richer moisturizer at night to deeply hydrate your skin and help it repair itself while you sleep.
Apply your eye cream again in the evening to nourish the delicate skin around your eyes.
Exfoliate your skin 1-2 times a week with a gentle scrub or chemical exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and improve skin texture.
Use a hydrating or anti-aging face mask once a week for an extra boost of moisture and nutrients.
