It’s time for some real talk—as we age, lower levels of estrogen have a big impact on skin. In fact, it’s estimated that up to one third of our dermal collagen—what keeps skin plump and supple—is lost in the first five years after menopause begins. However, changes to the skin are just one of 34 common symptoms associated with menopause. For 80% of menopausal women, this includes sweat-inducing hot flashes. Luckily, we’ve hand-picked our favorite beauty products to help combat these and other common side-effects of menopause to keep you looking (and feeling!) calm, cool, and collected.
Science Meets Skincare
This year, 50 million American women will reach a menopausal age. So it's no surprise that we’re frequently asked about skincare solutions for menopausal women. Many skincare solutions are formulated for women who are treating early signs of aging. But the major shift in hormones that occurs during menopause requires a more targeted solution.
KORRES White Pine Meno-Reverse™ Volumizing Serum-In-Moisturizer uses powerful white pine derived from the oldest living trees in Europe, to activate new protein production, promote skin elasticity, and reduce wrinkles. Nourishing abyssinia oil and natural peptides reduce sagging for firmer, plumper skin after just seven days—clinically proven!
For targeted age spot and wrinkle treatment, reach for KORRES White Pine Meno-Reverse™ Deep Wrinkle, Plumping + Age Spot Concentrate. The powerful cream formula can be used daily to plump deep wrinkles, improve age spots, and minimize pores. The innovative formula is specifically designed for menopausal and post-menopausal skin for results you can really see.
Work It Out
When it comes to tech-savvy beauty tools, nothing catches our eye quite like this rose gold Skin Gym Beauty Lifter Vibrating T-Bar. Like the name suggests—Skin Gym beauty roller and skincare devices act like a workout for your skin, giving you a more lifted, contoured, and revived appearance. This ultra-sleek beauty tool uses innovative sonic vibration technology to gently massage facial muscles and stimulate skin for added radiance. The dynamic T shape fits effortlessly into hard-to-reach contours to ease facial tension and firm skin in just minutes.
When we’re tired, the delicate skin around the eyes is often a dead giveaway that we’re not getting a full eight (seven? Read six.) hours of sleep. Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench™ Hydrogel Eye Patches instantly hydrate and revive dull, tired eyes. Each power-packed patch contains ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid, collagen, and marshmallow root to smooth and plump the skin around the eyes. The gel-like texture provides an instant cooling effect while caffeine helps eyes look wide awake—even if you’re not.
Set, Refresh, Repeat
It’s not often we’re able to say a product has ties to royalty, but Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir is one such product. Inspired by Queen Isabelle of Hungary's coveted elixir of youth, this multitasking mist is packed with skin-loving ingredients to tone, set makeup, and boost radiance. Whether you're experiencing hot flashes or just out and about on a hot day, heat and sweat can cause makeup to smudge.. This ultra-fine mist weightlessly nourishes skin, locks makeup in place, and acts like a “refresh button” throughout the day to keep you looking and feeling your very best.
