Dry skin and hair loss during menopause.

After the loss of menopausal symptoms, is dry skin an important part of your reality?

This may not be one of the most serious symptoms, but it is definitely part of menopause. Hair loss is another "not so pleasant" side effect of menopause. Let us find out why this happens and how it relates to menopause.

Is it bad enough for women to sweat at night, have headaches, insomnia and irritability, but lose their hair? Is this too much? Some doctors do not believe that it is really caused by menopause or decreased female hormones.

But because it happened at about the same time, there may be some relationship, although age may also be related to this. Of course, sunlight and gravity can also cause stress on women's skin, so don't blame menopause.

Maybe 50/50? No one knows for sure, but one thing is for sure, at this age you need to stock up skin cream. Since estrogen decreases during menopause, let's take a look at some of its chemical side effects.

The collagen and elastin in the skin begin to degenerate, leading to wrinkles, which may be related to the reduction of estrogen. Their skin loses its elasticity, and in many women, the fat layer under the skin becomes thinner. This can also cause more wrinkles and skin loss of appearance.

When the skin begins to sag, wrinkles will become more obvious. Coupled with the dryness experienced by many women at this time, your skin starts to look more like your mother every day, right? Some women turn to existing creams that contain natural estrogen and progesterone ingredients.

They are not only safer than oral hormone replacement therapy, but also more direct because they can be applied to the skin. These hormone-containing skin creams are not a "magic bullet" for dry skin, but they seem to slow down the skin aging process of many women, which is definitely helpful.

When you use it, it may be a good idea to stay away from the sun or use some kind of sunscreen with a high SPF. Can you have both at the same time. Look around, because there are probably some creams that contain both ingredients. If not, apply estrogen or progesterone cream at night and sunscreen during the day!

See if you have found an effective method and continue experimenting. There are many options now, so why is the skin dry? Another skin cream that seems very popular is RetinolA, which has been around for a while and seems to be helpful for many women's skin.

These creams are based on vitamin A, and some women report smoother skin, fewer spots and wrinkles, and healthier skin. They are not cheap, but maybe worth a try. Of course, the most important thing to remember is to eat healthy food, which initially means less sugar, which is important for overall health and skin.

As we all know, water can keep the skin healthy, so don't forget these vitamins every day.
