A woman’s ability to carry a child for 9 months and bringing a human being into this world is most definitely is a beautiful thing. Unfortunately, as the woman ages her ability to reproduce and carry children ceases and she goes into Menopause. First signs of menopause may be that her period stops and officially her menopause begins 1 year after… Menopause can bring some very challenging symptoms for women. These can vary from woman to woman. Worse even menopause can affect how your skin looks and cause the following conditions:

To help your skin we recommend skin care products that contain the following ingredients:

  • Peptides
  • Retinol
  • Ceramides
  • Vitamin C

If your skin is not used to products containing these active ingredients, we recommend not to overdue them and alternate the days of use until your skin gets used to them. If you haven’t used Retinol before and your skin is sensitive, we recommend to increase hydration for your skin using serums containing Hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. These will not only hydrate your skin, but also soothe your skin in case of redness and sensitivity.

Active ingredients in skin care products promote cellular renewal within the skin which will aid your skin in looking refreshed and more vibrant. To keep on top with your skin needs we also recommend the following:

  • Regular facials
  • Exfoliate your skin to get rid of dead skin cells
  • Wear sunscreen containing SPF50+ on a daily basis
  • Consider further anti-ageing treatments to stimulate your skin
  • Exercise regularly
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Try and get a good night’s sleep
