Taking Care of Your Skin During Menopause

Going through menopause is difficult for all manner of reasons; your complexion shouldn’t be one of them. A large proportion of women find that entering the menopause plays havoc with their skin. Fluctuating hormones can cause flare-ups of acne and exacerbate combination skin, while there seems to be a sudden increase in the number of fine lines and wrinkles staring back from the mirror. While it’s no secret that this phase of life can be challenging, we’re pleased to say that by adopting a menopause-specific skin routine and using products targeted at aging skin, you can get back to feeling like yourself in no time.


Menopause and the Face

Your face is one of the first places to show the effects of menopause, with many women experiencing acne breakouts for the first time since their teens. Often, menopause can exacerbate existing conditions too, whether it be dryness or discolouration. With this in mind here are our top 5 favourite products for acne:

Hydration

The key to caring for your skin during menopause is to treat it with extra care; using products designed specifically for aging skin.  Using a serum is a fantastic way to deeply hydrate the skin, as it can not only hydrate, but smooth fine lines and rebuild the skin’s structure. Pair this with a menopause-friendly day cream to ensure your skin is getting all the nourishment it needs to meet the day head-on. A good day moisturiser should contain an SPF, protecting your skin from any future damage. 

Utopia Skincare Anti-Wrinkle

Hydrating Day Cream 50ml

RRP £34.00

Our Price: £16.95

 

And daytime moisturisation isn’t where your skincare should stop. Investing in a good night cream allows you to get a headstart on the coming day by giving your skin everything it needs to recover and repair overnight. For example, Utopia Nourishing Night Cream encourages cell renewal and aids the skin’s outermost layer to eliminate dead cells. Two birds – one stone.


The Skin Around Your Eyes

The delicate skin surrounding the eyes is even more prone to developing fine lines and wrinkles, due to its location and fragile nature. As the skin is so thin, you should avoid using your usual face cream around the eyes, instead, choose a product which is suitably gentle. 

An allbeauty favourite, Utopia Instant Firming Eye Serum has been shown not only to reduce the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet, but to reduce dark circles and calm puffiness.


Hands, Neck and Decolletage

While most of us remember to moisturise our face daily, there are a few common areas which are missed. These left-behind areas are, unsurprisingly, the first to show the signs of aging.

The skin on our hands, neck and decolletage are exposed to the sun just as often as our face, which is why they so often succumb to discolouration, dryness and wrinkling. The decolletage and neck can also lose elasticity over time, resulting in a ‘crepe’ or ‘draped’ effect. Thankfully, products such as the Utopia Age Defying Hand, Neck and Decolletage Serum have been designed to target this exact complaint, firming, smoothing and toning these problem areas. 


And The Rest…

While the face, hands, neck and decolletage are all more obvious places for menopause symptoms to strike, that isn’t to say the rest of the body is safe. Whether it’s your knees, elbows, arms, or elsewhere, wrinkles can start to appear in all manner of places.

Utopia Skincare Anti-Wrinkle

Enriching Derma Gel 100ml

RRP £24.00

Our Price: £11.45

 

This skin is thicker than other areas of the body, so requires a moisturiser which is able to penetrate deeper. An age-specific, gel-based moisturiser, like Utopia Enriching Derma Gel can hydrate and repair large areas of skin while plumping and brightening problem zones.
