Inevitable changes due to menopause take place around the age of 50 and mark a physical transition. Hormonal deficiency and the drop in estrogen during this period bring their share of symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, anxiety, but above all the cause of skin aging. To help combat skin dryness, sagging skin tissue and thinning hair, it’s time to adopt new anti-ageing routines that compensate for the effects of hormonal variations.
Skin, deep hydration
The first step is to moisturize your skin, which becomes dry, tight and sensitive due to the lack of sebum, whose role is to protect the skin’s hydrolipidic film. Lierac launches the Arkéskin program, two skin care products and a food supplement to correct the signs of menopause on the skin. Inspired by chronobiology, this care product combines a nourishing daytime bio-peptide that reactivates skin protection, a cocoa extract that restores elasticity, and hydrating and smoothing hyaluronic acid. Composed of 96% natural ingredients, its melting and refreshing texture melts on the skin to provide nutrition without any greasy effect. Find the program including the Balancing Comfort Day Cream, the Food Supplements and the Toning Melt-In Balm.
Skin health check and rebalancing
Let’s start with a real assessment of your skin, we have chosen the good advice of Dr. Pauline Burgener of the Clinic B-mediC in Lausanne, specialist in better-ageing. Thanks to a personalized method, she obtains a diagnosis as close as possible to your needs. We boost and rebalance our skin with the hydration set, a beauty innovation by Dr. Burgener Switzerland. A real cure for your skin, the set includes the Hydra-Mask Face which deeply moisturizes the skin to restore its elasticity, hyaluronic acid and collagen reinforced with aloe vera restructure the cells and fight the signs of aging. Combined with HA-Xpress serum, your skin is instantly hydrated and fine lines are reduced.
Anti-sagging and anti-ageing
Another treatment for your skin is Vichy’s Neovadiol range, specific skin care products for the peri- and post-menopausal period. A complete range that reactivates skin mechanisms such as slackening, density and wrinkles. We especially like the NEOVADIOL MENO 5 BI-SERUM, which has 5 targeted actions to restore the oval of the face, correct age spots, visibly reduce wrinkles and reconstitute surface lipids to restore the skin’s radiance.
SOS damaged feet
Let’s not forget to pamper our feet, which are too often stressed and sensitized during the menopause phase. It is not uncommon to find yourself with small cracks in your feet, the skin cracks and becomes dry in places, especially on the heels. We like Mavala’s foot care range, with a special mention for the Hydro-Repair Care for very dry, cracked feet, containing a high concentration of urea with super-moisturizing properties and a very pleasant minty fragrance.
