Ways to Keep Your Skin Glowing Even After Menopause
In order to look youthful even after your menopause, the best way is to focus on activities that would build collagen and elastic fibers in your skin. Here is what you can do!
Scrub it out
One of the best ways you can enhance the collagen levels in your skin is by scrubbing them regularly. Once the outer layer of the skin is shed, the deeper layers of the skin automatically get the signal to become more active. Choose gentle and good scrubs and avoid over scrubbing, especially when you have a sensitive skin. Stick to twice a week. If you have an oily and tough skin, gentle daily scrub might be okay.
Get hold of creams that build collagen
Grab all those creams that would help your skin build collagen. This will make your skin glow and make you look youthful. It is highly recommended to go for vitamin creams. Renova/ Tazorac/ Tretinoin are a few good names you can reply upon. There are also proof that vitamin C serums enhance the production of collagen. Further, alpha and beta hydroxy acids do wonders in building collagen as well.
Building collagen through lasers
Yes, you read that right! Lasers could also help in building collagen, especially longwave lasers. Intense pulse light devices (IPLs) with photo-rejuvenation send signals to skin instructing it to build more collagen. You won’t get to see the results almost instantly. However, five monthly treatments can have visible results.
Keep your skin well hydrated
Water does more good to your skin than anything else! Your skin is more prone to dryness after menopause and this is when you need to keep your skin hydrated all the more. Use steeply hydrating moisturizers and sensitive skin cleaners to avoid dryness. This would also avoid your skin from looking dull, wrinkled and crinkled.
Boost the production of hyaluronic acid
In order to get youthful skin, look for products with glycolic acid. This will enhance the levels of hyaluronic acid in your skin, thus making you look young.
Whatever you do, stay happy and embrace the change. With a little bit of hard work, you can manage to look young and dynamic forever.
