How to Keep Your Skin Healthy During Menopause


Menopause… just the word fills some women with dread, years before it even happens to them. Cursed hot flashes, night sweats, lethargy, mood swings… Perimenopausal symptoms can be endless! Dealing with menopausal skin isn’t easy, but there are solutions that can help. Menopause is a natural aging process and, unfortunately, there is no way women can avoid it. However, there are many things you can do to help your skin continue to be strong, healthy and vibrant.



First, some basic menopausal skin nitty gritty: As you go through menopause, three main components in our body that work together affecting the skin, start to SLOW down. These components include estrogen, collagen and peptides.

Estrogen is a hormone that starts to decrease significantly after menopause. It causes your skin to become drier, thinner and more sensitive to irritating substances. Dry, thin skin leads to wrinkles and sagging, which we all want to avoid.

Another vital element to healthy, youthful skin is a protein called collagen. It acts as a humectant, absorbing a large amount of water. As our collagen production diminishes, in turn we have less water in our skin, causing it to be drier and not as supple. Say it ain’t so! Oh, it’s so, but there are several things women can do to prevent and lessen the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.

Get your daily dose of peptides in your skincare routine! What’s peptides? Peptides are protein fragments that signal collagen production in the skin. These welcomed messengers tell the skin to build more collagen and elastin, which in turn boosts the skin’s youthful appearance.



Tips for Healthy Skin During Menopause


Anytime you are in the sun, apply SPF 30+ or higher. Continue to apply as long as you are outside.

2. Skip the long hot showers!

Instead, after a warm shower, apply a rich body lotion to the skin to lock in moisture. GINAMARIE’S Face & Body Lotion is a great choice because it is a gentle, water-based formula that contains moisture-locking ingredients, like Vitamin C, Glycerin, Aloe Vera, and Oat Kernel Extract.


Facial hydration is so important to combat the effects of menopause. Look for skincare products specifically formulated for mature skin. How do you know which ingredients to look for? Hyaluronic acid, glycerin and niacin are a few of the most powerful anti-aging ingredients. Learn more about ingredients here.

Even though what you put on your skin is very important, your lifestyle is key to healthy skin.

For example, at meals, make sure your plate looks colorful! Fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidants, like broccoli, red peppers, berries, and oranges, work wonders on you, inside and out.

Factors like smoking, alcohol, obesity, and lack of exercise will also determine the health of your skin. We all want that healthy facial glow, but avoiding unhealthy habits is more than skin deep. Keep your body strong and fit so it can last a long, long time.

Menopause happens. We cannot stop it. But, we can make getting older more graceful and gentle by having a strong skincare routine, a healthy lifestyle, and a good attitude!
