Hormonal changes during the menopause affect a woman's body as well as her skin's appearance. A reduction in oestrogen causes a significant decrease in the production of collage, resulting in sagging or thinning skin. In some cases, the variation of hormones can affect the skin barrier function, cause acne flares or even an increase in oil production.
Characteristics of 50s+ skin:
- Decrease in collagen and elasticity
- Sagging or thinning skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots
