Menopausal Skin in Autumn, everything you need to know

Share This Post

As we age, our skin undergoes changes, particularly during menopause. The drop in oestrogen levels leads to thinner, dryer and less elastic skin, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. As the Autumn season ticks by, the changing weather poses new challenges for Menopausal Skin. In this blog, we will discuss everything you need to know to keep your skin healthy and glowing during the Autumn season.

Hydration is Key

As the temperature drops, and heaters come on, the air inside becomes dryer, robbing your skin of moisture, leading to dryness, flakiness, and itching. Therefore, it becomes imperative to stay hydrated from within by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

Besides water, hydrate your skin by using a hydrating moisturiser or Hyaluronic Acid. Our Pharmagrade Hyaluronic Acid contains pure ingredients help to lock in moisture and keep your skin soft and supple through the season.

Beware of Sun Damage

The UV rays of the sun are present even in Autumn, and their effects can be more harmful on menopausal skin. As oestrogen levels drop, the skin becomes thinner, making it more susceptible to sun damage. Exposure to UV rays causes sunspots, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. Therefore, it is essential to wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, even on cloudy days.

Nourish Your Skin with Antioxidants

Antioxidants are the superheroes of skincare; they fight off free radicals that cause skin damage and premature aging. Eating foods rich in antioxidants like berries, leafy greens and nuts is beneficial for overall skincare. Incorporating antioxidant-rich skincare products like serums, moisturisers and oils can further protect and nourish your skin.

Exfoliate Gently

With age, the skin’s natural exfoliation process slows down, leading to a build-up of dead skin cells, resulting in dullness, dryness, and clogged pores. While exfoliating is essential, it should be gentle especially when dealing with menopausal skin. Harsh scrubs can cause micro-tears in the skin, increasing sensitivity and inflammation. Exfoliate with a gentle exfoliator such as our Oxygen Face Polish. Clinically formulated with Oxylastil®, oxygenating your skin cells while natural Jojoba beads gently exfoliate, Polycol Moisturising Complex softens and limits moisture loss and helps cells to retain water while Vitamin E protects the skin.

Maintain a Healthy Skincare Routine

Finally, maintaining a daily skincare routine tailored to your skin’s needs is essential for combatting menopausal skin issues. This doesn’t need to be compilated, your routine should work for you! Look for sophisticated skincare that offer multiple benefits for your skin type. The essentials are, a soothing cleanser, a gentle exfoliator and a moisturiser, preferably one with SPF!

Incorporate serums specific to your skin concerns to really boost your skincare! Our Skin Booster Shots are perfect to tackle redness, dull skin or defend against daily pollution, simply mix a couple of drops into your usual moisturiser.

As menopausal women, our skincare needs change with the changing seasons. By incorporating hydrating moisturisers, antioxidants, gentle exfoliants and maintaining a healthy skincare routine, we can keep our skin healthy and glowing during Autumn and well into Winter. Remember to nourish your skin from within by eating a healthy diet and drinking enough water. Always consult with your dermatologist to tailor your skincare routine to your skin’s specific needs.
