The Effects of Menopause On the Skin

Aging is a completely natural process that everyone goes through at some point in their lives, and menopause is one of those big changes that comes along with getting older. 

Menopause causes some pretty massive changes to happen in your body; you’ll stop having your period, you might get hot flashes, and more. 

But a lesser-known fact about menopause is that it can also have a huge effect on your skin and its health. After all, your skin is the largest organ in your body, so it makes sense that one of the most notable periods of change would affect it in some ways.

Lots of changes happen to your skin during menopause, so let’s cover the major points, what causes them to happen, and anything you can do to mitigate the effects.

Menopausal Acne

Although most women likely left persistent acne in the past, you might find a resurgence of the condition during menopause.

One of the major causes of acne is a change in the balance of different hormonal levels.

During menopause, your body will slowly begin to produce less of the hormones estrogen and progesterone; these two hormones are associated with pregnancy and menstruation. The sudden change in levels can cause breakouts as your body is unused to having a steady supply.

Breakouts are natural during menopause, and there’s not much you can do to stop them entirely, but you can make it so they’re not as bad as they could be. Keep a consistent facial care routine with acne treatment products, and eat a healthy diet; those are the two major tips for almost all types of acne.

We’ve spoken about menopausal acne before in greater detail, too, so if you’d like to know more, be sure to read our other article.

Inability to Retain Water

Throughout menopause, your skin will slowly lose the ability to retain water. Water retention is what gives your skin its soft, dewy appearance. Without your typical water retention, your skin can also begin to look dry and feel dry.

This is because of the same hormone imbalances and changes that cause breakouts of acne. Your body gets confused at the sudden lack of something it’s used to having in spades, and it begins to behave differently to compensate.

Fièra designs products specifically for mature women, so we understand the effects of menopause on your skin, and we’ve created skincare items made to combat any undesirable effects of menopause.

Our Apple Stem Cell Cream contains Sea Buckthorn Oil along with other completely natural, vegan ingredients. Sea Buckthorn Oil is known to promote hydration and reduce redness, giving your skin back its youthful appearance!

Loss of Elasticity

Along with a reduction in its ability to hold water, your skin may also experience a loss of elasticity, which can lead to wrinkles and fine lines.

Concealer, one of the major cosmetic products used in every look, has a tendency to settle into fine lines and wrinkles throughout the day, leading to a look that’s probably not what you wanted. 

Fièra’s Luxury Concealer is designed to never settle into fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition, our concealer will actually work to correct some of the effects of aging such as redness, sun damage, dark circles, and reduced collagen levels! 

If you’re not completely satisfied, we offer full refunds. But with an overall rating of 4.6 stars with almost 6,000 reviews, we’re sure you’ll love what you see!

We offer both products featured in this article in one convenient bundle: the Fièra Smooth and Soften Set. You’ll get both amazing products (including our high-quality concealer brush) for a discount if you purchase the set, and you’ll only have to ship one item!
