Caring For Your Skin In Menopause

Menopause is a huge change for any woman; it naturally comes with changes that appear on the skin. You may start noticing these changes as early as one year following your last menstrual period.  Your skincare regime will need a major update. You will need skincare devices in your arsenal besides skincare products.

 Here is what to know!

How Does Your Skin Change with Menopause?

The first step is knowing how your skin changes with menopause. First you must understand that every skin is different so these effects may vary from person to person. However, as the hormone levels plummet, you will notice some combination of symptoms indicating your menopausal period is here.

Some of the major changes include a lack of collagen production in the skin barrier, a loss of fat, and a drop in skin elasticity. You will notice an increase in expression lines and wrinkles. Loss of estrogen can also lead to changes such as dry skin, acne, extra facial hair, dark spots, and a myriad of other skin concerns.  But with the right care, you can ensure your skin looks its best!

SkinCare With Menopause

SPF Is Your Best Friend

Anyone who has reached the menopausal age should employ SPF in their daily skincare regime. It should be seen as a part of our daily wear. Apply a minimum SPF 30 sunscreen daily, whether you are stepping outdoors or staying indoors (UV rays are highly penetrating!). A sunscreen will help prevent dark spots, reduce the risk of skin cancer, and help fade away old age spots.

Use Mild Cleansers

During menopause, you should take special care with the agents you use for cleansing your skin. Your skin will likely turn dry, itchy, and flaky. You should avoid using abrasive soaps or harsh cleansers; instead, use gentle cleansers formulated to clean the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. You should use mild cleansers with salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or ceramides.

Use The Right Moisturizers

It is not just the cleanser you should be switching out; if you are not using a moisturizer, you best begin using one. It is what will actually help retain moisture in the skin. Falling estrogen levels equate to less moisture in the skin, which makes your skin prone to dryness and flakiness.


If you are worried strictly about acne, you can also explore skin therapies such as LED light therapy, which uses ultraviolet light to regenerate the skin from aging. You can use home devices such as AMIRO's LumoMax or Spectra get the same rejuvenating effects.

Remove Facial Hair

After menopause, you will notice a slight increase in facial hair. You will want to look for treatments that can safely and effectively remove facial hair without harming your skin barrier. An IPL treatment is a popular choice to help reduce facial hair and slow down its growth significantly. Products such as the AMIRO Icesmooth IPL device are a good choice if you seek an at-home device. The Amiro facial device uses clinic-grade IPL technology to weaken the hair follicle in the skin with a regulated temperature of 50°F, so you can enjoy painless, effortlessly flawless skin!


Dealing With Wrinkles and Loose Skin

With a major drop in collagen, you will notice your skin becoming loose, flaccid, and more prone to wrinkling. You can use an anti aging device to stimulate the facial muscle, reduce puffiness, and lift and firm the skin. The AMIRO Microcurrent LED device is an excellent choice that will help you rejuvenate, tighten, and brighten the skin. You can also glean similar benefits from an ultrasound facial, which will help smoothen wrinkles and improve skin elasticity. The AMIRO U1 is a fantastic face tightening device for ultrasound facials at home.

Final Thoughts

Menopause is a huge change. Naturally, you must begin to work with these changes. Incorporate the skincare regime changes we have enlisted above, including anti aging devices, to keep your skin looking its best - even after age 50!
