Menopause can bring a multitude of positive changes to your life. It can also lead to some unwelcome changes in your hair and skin health. The most common cause for this? Rapidly declining levels of estrogen. When estrogen begins decreasing in your body, you lose some of the molecules that help keep your hair and skin moisturized. Below, we get into some of the most common hair and skin changes that can be expected after menopause — and how you can remedy them.
Hair Loss & Thinning
It’s not uncommon for women to experience thinning, less-full hair during menopause. Estrogen promotes hair growth, density, and overall fullness, and it can be difficult to maintain the same hair you were used to before. A dry scalp can also contribute to such drastic changes in your hair, so you’ll want to use gentle, moisturizing products as well. An advanced hair treatment developed with Elastaplex™ Technology to maintain hair vitality, our HAIR Vibrant Scalp Treatment helps nourish and rejuvenate the scalp for noticeably longer, visibly fuller hair. Morning and night, pump two or three times onto your fingertips and gently massage into the trouble areas on the scalp for one minute until absorbed.
Dry & Sagging Skin
When estrogen production decreases, so does your skin’s collagen production — the protein responsible for your skin’s tightness, plumpness, and youthful glow. While supplements containing collagen are talked about online as a post-menopausal solution, there aren’t enough controlled studies to prove that consuming collagen will help. If you’re looking to keep skin moisturized, our Rejuvenating Facial SKIN Moisturizer contains hyaluronic acid, which helps hold in water and keep skin supple. An ultra-hydrating formula that supports the body’s natural ability to create elastin and collagen, our unique moisturizer also helps visibly reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots and protect against oxidation damage caused by free radicals. Morning and night, pump two or three times onto your fingertips and apply to your face with an upward motion — smoothing the remaining moisturizer onto your neck.
