There are many forms of skin ageing that occur naturally and gradually throughout our lives, but a key trigger of this is the decrease in the hormones oestrogen and progesterone that occurs as we approach menopause. As they decline, our natural ageing accelerates, with a reduction in collagen production, loss of volume, firmness as well as overall glow and vitality.
Early menopause or the ‘peri-menopause’ can be anywhere between a 3-5 year period leading up to the menopause, when you may begin to notice the above signs in your skin. Some Orveda clients also report almost ‘teen’ concerns with their skin as hormones are disrupted, causing blemishes and changes in skin sensitivity.
To support your skin through this life chapter, we recommend the following routine:
