How Your Skin Changes During Menopause
For all women, menopause is an incredibly complicated process. When your hormones change, your body starts changing: hot flashes, night sweats, dryness, mood swings, hair growth, hair loss, acne, insomnia, and more. But did you know that menopause significantly effects your skin?
The reason that menopause effects the skin is because women need estrogen to stimulate skin-smoothing collagen and oils. When menopause approaches, estrogen levels decrease, resulting in dryness and sagging of the skin, acne, and fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, with testosterone no longer masked in the women's body, some women may develop unwanted hair growth, particularly facial hair.
