As soon as menopause starts, your estrogen level declines. That’s the culprit to blame for all these unwanted symptoms of menopause. As estrogen help with water retention, it makes your skin look plump and youthful. It is also responsible for promoting scalp hair growth. So in menopause, when estrogen level declines, all of its functions are lost. As a result, you will observe dry, sagging skin with general hair loss.
Menopause hits the body differently. It’s like your body starts aging faster. With the onset of menopause, it is normal to observe hair thinning and bald patches. You might also notice reduced body hair but increased facial hair. Also, your wrinkles and fine lines will be more prominent as collagen production is decreased. You will also observe age spots. With menopause, you will notice that your skin bruises easily and takes a long time for healing; this is because your skin is thinner now than before.
It is entirely normal and natural to experience these changes with your age and menopause. So don’t panic, you just need to take a little more care of your health and skin now. Eat healthy food, opt for facial massages, never forget your moisturizer and sunscreen, and you will enjoy your graceful skin.
