‘Menopausal skin’ isn’t a skin type in itself; it is more helpful to think about what your skin type is like during menopause and adjust your skincare routine to sort.
As an overall approach, it is about caring for skin (rather than using harsh products) so that it looks its best – healthy and nourished, radiant and glowing. Here are our top skincare tips for menopausal skin:
Skin can often become drier during menopause, so finding a cleanser that will nourish while it cleanses is key. Willowberry Nutrient Boost Cleansing Balm is rich in vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which protect skin’s barrier function for a bright, glowing complexion. It will also help skin to feel comfortable as it cleanses.
Perimenopause and menopause usually take place during your 40s and 50s, which is when cell turnover becomes slower and can cause skin to look dull. Help to speed things up by lifting away dead skin cells with a gentle exfoliator. Willowberry PHA Liquid Exfoliator is a daily exfoliating treatment using polyhydroxy acids, which are particularly suited to more mature and dehydrated skin, as they are a great humectant and help support the collagen matrix. It can be used on all skin types, even sensitive, for a smooth, glowing complexion.
Alongside your regular moisturiser, a face oil can add radiant glow and an extra level of nourishing goodness to menopausal skin. Opt for a light face oil such as Willowberry Nutrient Boost Face Oil, to nourish skin without the oil sitting heavy on the skin. A light face oil is your saviour if you suffer from hot flushes!
Willowberry is nutritious natural skincare for grown-ups, for your best skin.
A favourite with top make-up artists, Willowberry's luxurious award-winning products protect skin’s natural barrier function, to nourish and revive grown-up skin without telling women to be 'anti-ageing'.
