Aging gracefully doesn’t have to be so hard! The subtle signs of skin aging can take many ladies by surprise. Often, ladies only start to take their skin care more seriously after they notice their first wrinkles. By that time, the damage to the skin had already begun…and menopause intensifies the effects. Decreased estrogen levels can lead to a range of skin problems such as: Dry skin, dark spots and fine lines. The Science of Menopausal Skin Problems: Why Some Women Look Older Than They Really Are. The skin is made up of 3 main layers and the health of each layer affects the overall appearance of our skin. During menopause, fluctuations in estrogen levels cause each layer to deteriorate over time. Deep sagging and wrinkles? It’s probably your dermis… Common skin problems are «pigment spots» and dry, flaky skin. Why is this happening? Wrinkles and sagging skin are the result of two factors in the dermis layer:
1. Low levels of collagen. If skin were a mattress, then collagen would be the springs that support it. The more springs, the smoother the surface of the mattress. However, as we age, collagen levels drop… leading to less skin support.
2. High level of glycation. Glycation is one of the main causes of skin aging. This happens when the excess sugar we consume reacts with and binds to collagen. It’s like rust covering the springs (collagen) in a mattress (skin) and over time the springs break down resulting in uneven skin support. Low collagen levels and high glycation levels combine to cause deep wrinkles and sagging skin with age. If only more women knew about this… They could easily enjoy radiant and firm skin! Many ladies use skin care products that target the epidermis (outer skin) and a small percentage also focus on the dermis (middle layer of the skin).
However, did you know that the hypodermis layer (the base of the skin) probably has the biggest impact on skin health? Yet so few ladies pay attention to it. The hypodermis serves as the «bridge» between the skin and the major blood vessels in the body. When the hypodermis is healthy occurs:
Good regulation of nutrients in skin cells
Healthy production of own collagen and hyaluronic acid is restored.
The level of glycation is normalized.
IT IS JUST TO REPLACE THE DEFICIENCY OF COLLAGEN AND HYALURONIC ACID
