Hormonal Changes

Dry skin, redness, frequent breakouts are often due to hormonal changes... 

Our In-Balance Discovery Kits help get it under control.

This estrogen decline causes an internal hormone imbalance, which is a primary contributor to skin aging which can involve many rapid skin changes.

For a woman, hormonal changes, as it relates to aging, begin between 38-42 years of age, often referred to as pre or peri-menopause. Of course, this is not a hard and fast rule. There are other reasons that changes can begin sooner or later.

Dryness: As estrogen levels decrease, women will experience increased dryness due to decreased sebum (or oil) production.

Dehydration: Our hyaluronic acid levels (which keep the skin hydrated) decrease.

Enlarged pores: Pores will appear larger due to weaker collagen and elastic tissue.

Acne: Due to hormonal changes (less estrogen and more testosterone), women may break out during peri-menopause. As testosterone becomes more out of balance, the skin oil production goes into overdrive, producing excess sebum that can clog pores.

Ultimately, pre-menopausal skin can have a little bit of everything going on and it can be confusing and frustrating whenever our skin starts to change.

Starting a good skincare routine that exfoliates, moisturizes and treats will support a vibrant aging journey.
