Menopause and Perimenopause – How It Affects The Face and Why We’re Not Afraid To Talk About It

17 January 2022

Many women have neutral perceptions of menopause or perceive it as a positive experience as it offers relief from the worries of menstruation, freedom from the necessity of contraception, and increased sexual freedom. Regardless of where you stand, the stigma or taboo that was once to heavily associated with menopause and perimenopause is slowly (and thankfully) being chipped away at.

At Medical Aesthetic, we’re not afraid to talk about the hard facts of life. Afterall, menopause is inevitable and is something that we believe women should celebrate instead of suffer through. Menopause is the response, a natural way of making the physical changes necessary so we can continue to live a fulfilling and healthy life. Reframing menopause as a positive life event can help reduce the impact symptoms have on your life.

How Menopause Affects The Face

If you’re seeing visible changes in skin post-menopause or during perimenopause, you can usually blame rapidly declining levels of the hormone estrogen. Estrogen promotes water retention and plumpness in the skin. As a result, when estrogen drops, you lose some of the molecules that help keep the skin plump, moisturised and youthful looking. Collagen is another vital protein that holds the body’s tissues together, and when estrogen drops, your skin’s collagen production inevitably decreses. Loss of collagen may result in your skin losing its youthful volume and tightness.

Other Ways To Reduce The Signs Of Aging Post-Menopause

Aside from investing in some of the best skincare products available on the market, there are numerous other steps you can take to reduce the signs of ageing, some of which include:

  • Many people take collagen supplements or eat high-collagen foods like bone broth. However, keep in mind that the jury is still out on this strategy.
  • You can also manage post-menopause skin dryness with a good home care routine.
  • Sunscreen – slather it on every day, all year round. Sun protection can ward off signs of aging and prevent skin cancer.
