Tackling Menopausal Skin Aging

Episode 230,   Oct 15, 2022, 01:19 PM

By 2025, there will be more than 1 billion women experiencing menopause in the world. That's equivalent to 12% of the entire world population of 8 billion. Although menopause impacts such a large group of the population – many women are left without the educational resources they need to learn about this new life stage and its impact on the body. 

In honor of World Menopause Day, we examine the taboo and unexpected skin changes that come with this change of life. We also offer tips and tricks to battle these changes, including the science-backed skincare brand No7 Menopause skincare line targeting the six key signs of menopausal skin aging, co-created with 7,000 menopausal women.

Menopause is a topic that society tends to shy away from, but we shouldn't. As a culture, we need more educational information about what happens to our skin as it ages, especially during menopause. The skin changes in three major ways during this transitional period. 

The first is collagen loss. Studies show that the skin experiences 30% collagen loss during the first five years of menopause. The next is dry skin. Skin loses its ability to retain water as you age, so it gets extremely dry/sensitive. And lastly, hot flashes cause aging, redness, dullness, loss of radiance, fine lines, and wrinkles.

However, there are skincare solutions on the market for women in menopause. No7 Menopause skincare collection was co-created with 7,000 menopausal women. It costs so much less than other luxe products, but it works. It's also easy to find online and in-store at your local Walgreens.

Some of our favorites from the line include the Instant Radiance Serum, which works in one week to improve the appearance of collagen-depleted skin. 

Protect & Hydrate Day Cream SPF 30 provides proven 72-hour hydration for sensitive skin, and the Nourishing Overnight Cream is packed with ceramides and peptides. The line also includes the Firm & Eye Brightening eye cream and Instant Cooling Mist to relieve hot flashes symptoms.
