Your skin is a good indicator of your overall health and wellbeing. Fluctuating hormone levels at the menopause can play havoc with your skin, leaving it dry, dull and wrinkly. Fortunately, there are many steps you can take to help your skin look its best, whatever your stage in life.
In the Summer 2011 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, dermatologist and anti-ageing expert Dr Sam Bunting has some advice on keeping your skin looking good during and after the menopause. She covers how the menopause affects the different layers of your skin, ways to improve your skincare routine (with product examples), the benefits of trying out different procedures (e.g. dermal fillers) and how to make positive changes to your lifestyle.
“Skin is one of the first parts of the body to show signs of ageing and can leave women feeling self-conscious and lower their self-esteem,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “There’s no single way to combat these changes, but a combination approach can help. In her article, Dr Bunting has useful practical advice for women seeking to improve the appearance of their skin around the menopause.”
The Menopause Exchange is completely independent – it’s not sponsored by any companies and is funded purely by subscriptions from individuals and healthcare professionals. Other articles in the Summer 2011 issue include continuous combined HRT, herbs at the menopause and alcohol and smoking in relation to the menopause.
