Embracing the Change. Navigating Menopause
As you journey into peri-menopause and menopause, you will notice many changes throughout your body.
The most prominent being the changes in overall skin health.
As estrogen levels decrease, your skin becomes gradually thinner and more dull. Menopause takes a toll on our hormone levels, specifically leading to a decline in estrogen. These changes of estrogen and progesterone can cause various symptoms that can creep up or happen quickly.
For some, skin health can be alarming with the drop of collagen levels leaving dull, grey, crepey skin on the face and the body. When this happens we lose firmness so our skin begins to sag, creating jowls and permanent lines.
Menopause and Skin
Studies show that women lose 30% of collagen during the first 5 years of menopause. Now half of this can be cared for with good skincare products, but we need to be realistic as well in that this cannot be repaired through products alone.
WEAR SKINCARE EVERYDAY
Make sure to wear broad spectrum with 30SPF or higher. Apply to face, neck, hands which are areas that are quick to show signs of aging. Our Purely Tinted Moisturizer and Skincare Cover are both products that contain non-chemical sunscreen that provides protection from harmful rays. Use them on top of your sunscreen for coverage and added protection.
MOISTURIZE MOISTURIZE MOISTURIZE
Perimenopausal or menopausal skin needs a thirst quenching skincare routine that contains hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, moringa oil, sunflower and/or avocado oil. Ingredients that deeply penetrate the skin and maintain moisture.
For mature skin, we want a gentle cleanser that does not dry out or strip nature moisture from the skin. Energize and revitalize your skin with Earth's Expert Skincare | Hawaiian Cleanser! This multi-purpose foam purifies, detoxifies, and boosts cell turnover, removing dead skin cells while soothing and treating sensitivities. Its plant-powered formula is perfect for cleansing face, body, and to use for shaving and shampoo.
Phytonutrients and Vitamin C will also plump skin and aid in collagen production. Omegas-6 acid found in sunflower seed oil will enhance the development of new skin cells, by stimulating cellular regeneration to promote elastin and collagen production. This is exactly why these ingredients are the star of the show in our Plant Therapy Collection, a line of products specifically formulated to combat the impacts of menopause on the skin.
Our Island Moisture Creme is the perfect moisturizer to top up the Plant Therapy serums as it not only deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin, but also removes dead skin cells and boosts cell turnover and collagen production.
DON'T TAN IN THE SUN OR USE TANNING BEDS
I know we all look better with a sun kissed glow. But laying out in the sun for hours or exposing your skin to the harmful rays of tanning beds accelerates aging, causing age spots, blotchy skin, and can potentially even lead to skin cancer.
People often think the more expensive the more effective. This is not always the case. There are many affordable products in the aisles of your local drugstores that have been more carefully formulated than high-end products that are heavily advertised as clean. Make sure to be a conscious consumer, read labels, and do your research before using products that may contain harsh chemicals on your skin and hair.
GIVE THE PRODUCT TIME TO WORK
Sometimes when we don’t see immediate results, we jump ship.
Give the product that you have just entered into your routine some time to work. Real results may take anywhere from 6 weeks up to 3 months to show.
Menopause does a number on my aging skin and the foundation has a wonderful feel that glides on smoothly. Used for a month and can see incremental improvement on mature skin
Definitely 5 stars Love it!
To think that a little bottle of serum could bring my skin alive again! Menopause is taking a toll on my health and my skin and within three weeks my skin was glowing. I was looking so dull. even my make up because I’m better now.
This is my final step following my Sweet Leilani cover foundation. I lightly apply the powder to my T-zone to keep my menopause shine at bay. It never cakes on top or wears off until washed off. The perfect finish to a great line of products.
I've always prioritized good skin care but after menopause it seemed nothing was working, my skin was always dry, and flat, fine lines deepened and started to appear in areas they had never been before. Then I was introduced six months ago to Sweet LeiLani Pant Therapy products. Oh, my goodness, within a week I saw a noticeable difference within a month my skin was glowing, and I looked like I had lost 10 years, the fine lines were gone and the skin was plump and hydrated. Even my friends started asking what on earth had I done? My favorite is the Roll on Eye & Lip Elixir first thing in the morning it is just amazing, takes away puffiness and really soothes and refreshes. Combined with the serums the results are just amazing. Menopausal skin officially kicked to the curb. Thank you LeiLani.
