Faced with dry skin, a thinned epidermis, deeper wrinkles, skin laxity, loss of volume in the face, and dark spots, you may be wondering how to care for your skin when you reach menopause.

Hydration is the key to perfectly healthy mature skin. With our special menopausal moisturising ritual, discover our tips and advice on gracefully dealing with this crucial step in the lives of women.

Our special menopausal moisturising ritual for naturally beautiful mature skin

As you approach menopause, your female hormones will retire. Oestrogen and progesterone will no longer stimulate your skin cells like fibroblasts, which are involved in the production of hyaluronic acid (a molecule that captures and retains water in the dermis), collagen and elastin (fibres which give the skin its tone and elasticity).

In short, your skin will suffer from dryness, one of the leading causes of the thinning of the epidermis, the development of wrinkles, and skin laxity.

What’s the solution? Adopt a special menopausal beauty and moisturising routine to restore balanced water levels in the skin of your face and body.

Gently cleanse your face

In the morning, clean your skin with a mild product that preserves your skin’s barrier, which protects it against external aggressors and maintains its hydration.

Micellar water enriched with plant extracts will eliminate impurities from the surface of your skin while providing a cool, soothing sensation.

Apply a serum to optimise the action of your anti-ageing cream

Once it is perfectly clean, your skin will be ready to receive the serum which will increase the effectiveness of your anti-ageing treatment.

Rich in active ingredients, this product, specially formulated for menopausal skin, regenerates and protects the epidermis, brightens the complexion, and smooths wrinkles and the texture of your skin.

Moisturise your skin with a special cream for menopause

Every day, apply a facial treatment and body cream, specially formulated to hydrate mature or menopausal skin.

Opt for products containing hyaluronic acid, essential fatty acids, vitamin A and/or trace elements.

To boost the results of your treatments, don’t hesitate to repeat this process in the evening.

Exfoliate your dry or dull skin

Use a scrub on your skin, on a regular basis. Once you have gently removed the dead cells that accumulate on the outer layer of the epidermis, your skin will be ready to receive your beauty treatments.

Pamper your skin with targeted treatments

To fight dryness in your skin and plump up certain parts of your face which are particularly sensitive to the effects of menopause, don’t hesitate to complete your routine with a targeted treatment, beginning with a lifting, wrinkle-fighting product specially designed for the skin around your eyes or lips.

To hydrate your dry skin deep down, opt for a refreshing mask with essential oils once or twice a week.

Protect your skin from the sun

Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and opt for high SPF sun protection to avoid further accentuating dryness and ageing in your skin.

Take advantage of this to also protect your hair, which are likewise subjected to the effects of menopause.

Hydrate your skin through a balanced diet

To combat the symptoms of menopause and ensure good skin hydration, supplement your beauty routine with a balanced diet.

Drink plenty of water and enjoy organic food rich in water like fruit and vegetables.

Stock up on:

⦁ vitamin A to hydrate yourself from the inside and help your skin synthesise collagen (egg yolks and fish liver oil)
⦁ vitamin C, known for its effects on wrinkles and a radiant complexion (citrus fruit and broccoli)
⦁ vitamin E, which slows the ageing of your cells and preserves your skin’s hydration and elasticity (sunflower oil, olive oil and wheat germ oil).
