Facial routine to combat signs of menopause
Women at the onset of menopause, between 45-50 years old( sometimes before or after ) experience many physiological changes due to progressive hormonal oscillations. Estrogen and progesterone levels decrease during menopause.
The figure changes , with an increase of the adipose component and increases blood flow in the face and neck , which from here comes the hot flashes as it increases the body temperature.
The skin also undergoes important changes during menopause. Early aging is experienced.
The lack of estrogen causes a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that are part of the cell matrix that supports the skin , providing firmness and consistency. This loss gives the skin a drier, brittle, and finer appearance, leading to wrinkles, expression lines, and skin sagging.
During menopause , although we relate it to adolescence, oily skin may appear, as testosterone stimulates the sebaceous glands to secrete sebum and giving the appearance of oily skin.
Also, during menopause we find less nutrients and oxygen available in the layers of the epidermis. This constitutes a thinning of this , causing a decrease in cell renewal and retention of skin water . The skin is less hydrated giving a dry skin look.
As we get older we also find more spots on the skin. Estrogens exert a regulating effect of melanin. In the areas of the skin that have been more exposed to the sun, the synthesis of melanin increases causing the appearance of spots.
But do not panic , wearing certain lifestyles and applying cosmetics in your facial routine that provide the elements that are altered during menopause, we can act to reduce skin aging.
