Menopause is a natural phase in a woman's life, but it often comes with a host of skin issues due to hormonal changes. These can include dry, itchy skin, wrinkles, fine lines, loss of firmness, acne, skin redness, hyperpigmentation, and slower wound healing. In this article, we'll explore how menopause affects your skin and introduce a solution to these concerns – our award-winning natural face oil.
Understanding how menopause causes skin changes
Menopause triggers a hormonal rollercoaster, primarily a decline in oestrogen levels. This hormonal shift plays a pivotal role in the changes observed in menopausal skin. As oestrogen wanes, skin becomes less elastic, leading to the development of wrinkles and fine lines. The reduction in collagen production can further contribute to the loss of firmness. Additionally, declining oestrogen can result in drier skin, making it prone to itchiness. Hormonal imbalances can also exacerbate skin issues like acne, redness, and hyperpigmentation. Furthermore, slower wound healing during menopause is linked to the decreased production of essential skin-repairing proteins. With these hormonal changes in mind, it's crucial to adapt your skincare routine to address the unique needs of menopausal skin. Our award-winning face oil is tailored to provide the care and nourishment your skin craves during this transformative phase of life.

Addressing common menopausal skin concerns
Dry, itchy skin
All five botanical oils in our face oil are high in omega fatty acids, providing your skin with the moisture it craves. These oils also create a protective barrier, preventing moisture loss and keeping your skin hydrated and soft.
Wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of firmness
Hydrated skin appears plumper, reducing the visibility of fine lines. Omega fatty acids playa role in enhancing collagen production, which leads to improved skin firmness.
Acne and skin redness
If you're dealing with redness and acne-prone skin, our face oil can be a game-changer. It combines five anti-inflammatory oils that work synergistically to soothe inflammation and reduce the severity of acne breakouts.
Our face oil contains Argan oil, which has shown potential in reducing hyperpigmentation by interfering with melanin production.
Slower wound healing
Essential oils like Lavender, Frankincense, and Geranium in our face oil have cicatrisant properties that promote wound healing. Frankincense essential oil, in particular, is renowned for its ability to fade scars.
In summary, menopause can bring about a range of skin issues, but with the right skincare products like our award-winning natural face oil, you can address and alleviate these concerns.
