By Womaness Editors 3-Minute Read
When you're going through menopause, it's natural for your skin to feel drier thanks to lower estrogen levels. The changes in your hormones can also make your skin more sensitive to cosmetics and other skincare products. But no need to fret; these seven beauty tips will help you deal with menopausal skin and keep it radiant and healthy!
1. Hydrate more than ever
Smooth skin is possible as you go through menopause; it just requires a little more commitment and the right products. Take on fine lines and crepey skin by hydrating morning and night with safe, natural products designed for menopausal skin, like the skincare line from Womaness.
2. Sleep with a silk or satin pillowcase
Sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase is an easy way to help your hair and skin hold moisture. The result is shinier hair and smoother skin, plus a more luxurious sleeping experience.
3. Pamper your neck and décolleté
Many women neglect caring for their neck in their younger years—but it’s never too late to start. This area can be challenging to target, which is why we recommend using a firming roll-on cream like Let’s Neck that is designed for the neck specifically.
4. Protect from the sun
Sun exposure is the number one reason for skin damage and wrinkles for most women. Use face sunscreen with SPF 45+ every morning. A smart hack: you can also apply sunscreen on your hands to protect them from spots and lines.
5. Care for your body the way you care for your face
You have skin on more than just your face, right? So don’t neglect it—find a body moisturizer with high-quality ingredients (we love The Works body cream) and apply liberally and often. We like mixing bronzer in ours for an even brighter glow!
6. Wear breathable clothes (and underwear)
Wearing breathable cottons is great for quick recovery from hot flashes and keeping pH levels balanced down there so you feel as sexy as ever.
7. Have a strategy for cooling down
Being drenched in sweat from a hot flash is probably not the kind of shimmer that you’re looking for. Keeping a cooling (and naturally deodorizing) spray like Gone in a Hot Flash in your bag can help you keep your cool anytime, anywhere.
"Don’t let age change you. Change the way you age."
We know that menopause can be challenging (we’ve lived it firsthand!), but there’s also a lot to celebrate during this time of life. Take a moment to reflect on all you accomplished: you raised a family, built a career, nurtured relationships. Now it’s time to focus on YOU.
Womaness was created by women for women so that menopause symptoms don’t get in the way of you thriving as much as ever. With innovative products and a dose of unapologetic menopositivity, we’re here to help you take the “pause” out of menopause and feel fabulous from head to toe (and everywhere in between).
Hot flashes, dry skin, and low libido during menopause can be optional with the proper support. But embracing yourself in this stage of life is required! While other companies try to help you reverse aging, we don’t think aging is something to be ashamed of in the first place. Embrace yourself for exactly where you are in this phase of life by shopping our collection of hormone-free solutions for skincare, sleep, and sex today.
At Womaness, we believe women in menopause are just getting started. Our skincare, supplements, and sex products exist so you can take on menopause—and stay as unstoppable as you’ve always been.
