Menopause and Skin Changes – Simple Treatments for Menopausal Skin

by Laura Ramirez on July 12, 2011

Menopause and skin changes often go hand in hand, much to the dismay of mature women. The loss of protective female hormones that protect the heart and build healthy bones and skin, can often mean dryness, wrinkling, thinning, rashes and even the return of pimples. Couple this with hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, sugar cravings and other menopause symptoms and you have a recipe for depression.

Menopause and skin changes can be alleviated with the right products.

When women talk about going through “the change,” hot flashes and mood swings take most of the punches. What’s conveniently left out? The fact that menopause takes a serious toll on your skin. But just because your cycle’s a-changin’ doesn’t mean you have to say ta-ta to healthy, even skin.

Having menopause symptoms? Treat menopausal skin and maintain a healthy, even complexion throughout menopause.

What can a woman do to alleviate the problems associated with menopause and skin changes? Take an inside-out approach. This means supplementation as well as using creams or products to treat your particular set of symptoms.

Using inexpensive over the counter products is often beneficial. Products for teenage skin can soothe away menopausal acne.

To minimize wrinkles and fine lines try products that are made with vitamin C serum. Retin-A is also helpful for women who can tolerate it. If you get a rash from it, try a lower dose solution. The use of alpha hydroxy acids has also been shown to lead to smoother skin.

Including omega-3 fatty acids in your diet is an effective way to nourish your skin from the inside out. Make sure that you stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.
