Going through menopause? Then, you might want to consider changing up your beauty routine to include hormone-balancing anti-aging products.
According to board-certified dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman, “When a woman goes through menopause, her body produces a lower amount of estrogen that can affect every organ of the body, including skin.” This results in dry skin, sagging skin, acne, and wrinkles. So, what’s a gal to do? “A few simple tricks and treatments will help undo these menopause symptoms and make your skin look smoother and younger,” she says.
From day creams to intensive serums to treatments specifically formulated for menopausal skin, we’ll share the best beauty products for menopausal skin.
1. Isdin Isdinceutics Flavo-C Ultraglican Ampoules
As we age and go through menopause, the skin starts to lose radiance and elasticity. To combat this, Engelman suggests incorporating Isdin Isdinceutics Flavo-C Ultraglican Ampoules ($102) into your daily regimen. Formulated with 5% L-ascorbic acid — a naturally occurring form of vitamin C — the everyday antioxidant works to combat early signs of aging and promote a more youthful-looking complexion. What’s more? As a powerful anti-ager, the antioxidant can improve hyaluronic acid production and stimulate the skin’s cell growth, resulting in natural moisture production from within.
2. Vichy Neovadiol Compensating Complex Menopausal Replenishing Care
The next time you’re at your local drugstore, browse the beauty aisle for an anti-aging day cream that is made specifically with menopausal skin in mind. Enriched with the brand’s exclusive breakthrough Compensating Complex, Vichy Neovadiol Compensating Complex Menopausal Replenishing Care ($55) works in conjunction with a high-dose of pro-xylane to target and treat fundamental signs of menopause on the skin. The results? Ultra hydrated skin that appears plumper, firmer, and more radiant upon application.
