Looking in the mirror, I've started to wonder: Why am I reacting to products I have used plenty of times in the past? Why does my skin look dry, dull and flat? And, how could I possibly have acne now, when I didn't even have it as a teenager?
Let's not forget to mention all these scraggly billy goat hairs growing out of my chin!
I’ve always had an interest in skincare and the changes our skin goes through at different times in our lives. Now, at 52, I am looking into ingredients and products to help with menopausal skin and the changes that come with it.
With that in mind, let’s talk about what happens to your skin during menopause and what ingredients can be handy to incorporate into your routine during this period of change.
Skin Doctors Cosmeceuticals' has a new range, specifically made for skin changes that occur during menopause. The Skin Renew range is formulated with alpine rose stem cells. Alpine rose actually grows and thrives in harsh environments including high altitude dry regions and freezing temperatures. Its regenerative qualities help it thrive in stressful environments. Rose stem cells are great for our skin, as it helps keep collagen and elastin replenished. It also helps defend our skin against free radicals.
As we know, sleep is important for many reasons. Our body does its best repairing when we are asleep, allowing our cells the chance to regenerate.
The Skin Renew Restoring Sleep Balm, is not only enriched with alpine rose stem cells, but salicylic acid and lavender oil as well. It helps reduce the visible signs of skin fatigue and draws in moisture to the skin, fortifying the skin's lipid barrier.
