It’s not just your skin that gets dry during menopause, hormone changes can leave hair feeling more parched than the Sahara. And that translates to frizzy, fluffy and puffy - not adjectives we ever want used to describe our hair.
During the menopause, your skin can feel drier than a very long January. Why? Oestrogen levels drop and it’s this hormone that’s responsible for producing skin-smoothing collagen and hydrating oils. How to help?
Dry, tired skin - thank you menopause - is the last thing you need when you’re dealing with all the other symptoms. Yet as you enter your menopause years, chances are your skin has changed but your foundation probably hasn’t.
Fine. Good when it comes to weather, not so good when it comes to your hair. So the news that during the menopause we’re likely to suffer with hair thinning (as androgen levels drop) is hardly thrilling. But if you are seeing hair that’s lost body then there is good news.
