Perimenopause skin care explained

Perimenopause skin care explained

As the perimenopause leads you into a new phase of life, the best way to support your skin is with a gently nourishing routine that is tailored to your skin’s specific needs during this time. You can assess this simply by looking at you skin closely in the mirror and working out your skin’s condition and what it help it needs.

As we navigate changing hormone levels, we may notice our skin behaving differently. While some women experience very little change, for others breakouts may become an issue, skin may become more sensitive and prone to irritation, and dryness is a common concern.

While it can be tempting to turn to extreme products and treatments in a bid to get your skin back on track, this can end up upsetting the delicate balance of your complexion further.

Here are our top tips for perimenopause skin care:

Daily routine for perimenopausal skin
Keeping things simple with a good basic daily routine is the best foundation on which to care for your skin. Get into good habits of cleansing and nourishing day and night, to provide perimenopausal skin with the regular reassurance of a calming skincare routine.

Hydration for perimenopausal skin
Boost skin’s hydration levels at the cleansing stage as well as when moisturising. Willowberry Nutrient Boost Cleansing Balm does a good job at this, nourishes and hydrates as it melts away dirt, make-up and eye make-up.

Gentle exfoliation for perimenopausal skin
Using harsh skincare products that strip the skin of essential nutrients can cause the skin’s delicate barrier to become compromised. While we all love the glow that regular exfoliation brings, overly stringent exfoliating with harsh exfoliating acids is a common mistake that can leave skin sensitised and irritated. Instead opt for a PHA Exfoliator, which is gentle on skin and can be used daily to help keep skin smooth. Willowberry PHA Liquid Exfoliator protects skin whilst leaving it smooth, brightened, hydrated and radiant. It can even be used on sensitive skin.


Willowberry is nutritious natural skincare for grown-ups, for your best skin.
