Menopause and age don’t necessarily have to impact how you look
As we age we get wiser, more confident and have a better perspective of life, but unfortunately there’s also a lot of fear of aging and of “looking old”.
For women, menopause causes many skin changes because the body stops making as much collagen and the estrogen levels get lower, the fat layer under the skin diminishes and the skin’s elasticity drops. All of that plus the dryness caused by hormonal changes can cause sagging, fine lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet and lines above the upper lip.
However, there’s no need to fear because many of these skin aging effects can be relieved or even slowed down by taking care of your specific skin care needs, and with non-surgical nor invasive anti-aging treatments such as the ones we offer at Lasair Aesthetic Health in Denver.
Here are some tips to help your skin stay young and fresh:
Maintain a cleaning and hydrating routine
Cleansing is an important skin care step. As we age the key is to use a cleanser for drier skin, and use an appropriate skin moisturizer.
As we get older our skin has less natural protection against UV than when younger. So go for a broad-spectrum SPF30 or higher and make sure to apply some every day, or at least when you’ll be outdoors.
Eat an antioxidant rich diet and supplement your vitamins
Antioxidants can help make your skin stronger from the inside out. Look for brightly colored fruits and vegetables, and also make sure supplement your diet with quality vitamins in order to keep a healthy metabolic balance.
Avoid stress, work out and get your sleep
Stress may make your skin drier and more sensitive, and it can also trigger conditions like psoriasis. Practice any stress-reduction technique you like best to help you relax. Exercise is a great way to release stress, plus it also helps your skin by boosting circulation and providing extra oxygen and blood flow, which helps your skin look brighter and healthier. And last but not least, get plenty of beauty sleep to give the body the chance to regenerate and repair itself.
