Every woman endure menopause, by the time she reaches middle age. It comes with a lot of complications, and skin changes are also not spared. It is vital to know how to fight the skin changes of menopause to take right actions at the right time.
Changes Experienced: Major problems faced are hormonal changes and their declines. Ultimately, ovarian activity slows down decreasing in B-Estradiol levels. This leads to hot flashes or warmth feel under the skin, especially on face and profuse sweating. The overall experience leads to decrease in the production of estrogen and progesterone, leading to skin changes.
- Oily Skin: Testosterone production is prominent that stimulates sebaceous glands to secrete thicker sebum making skin appear oily.
- Facial Hair: Some women show development of facial hair, especially on chin.
- Sagging Skin and Wrinkles: Decrease in estrogen leads to fat redistribution. This results in skin sagging on face, neck, hands and arms.
- Elastosis: Lower estrogen levels lead to decrease in collagen and elastin in the skin dermis. UV rays destroy collagen resulting in elastosis.
- Thinning Epidermis: This leads to trans-epidermal water loss and dry skin.
- Hyperpigmentation / Age Spots: Melanin production is tampered.
How to Fight Against It
Here are some tips on how to fight the skin changes of menopause.
1. With age, skin becomes dry. Right cleanser with a creamy formula is a solution for dry skin.
2. Use heavier cream to moisten your skin. Avoid hot, long showers.
3. Skin protection from sunlight is a must. Choose a sunscreen that is from a broad-spectrum SPF30 or higher and use it regularly.
4. Due to hormonal changes, wrinkles appear, and hence you need to apply moisturizer on face, jawline and neck regularly. Use skin-care products meant to act against fine lines and sagging.
5. Face, hands and chest usually get affected with age spots. Use sunscreen every day. Those who are already affected with spots, use exfoliating products. These products help to shed dead skin cells. Toners may also help.
6. Apply moisturiser on hands too and wear gloves while doing household or yard work.
7. Eat foods with antioxidants such as brightly-coloured fruits and vegetables.
8. Soy, which is rich in isoflavones, acts like estrogen in the body.
9. Stress tends to make skin drier. Yoga, meditation, etc. helps to relax.
10. Do exercise regularly to tone your muscles.
11. Sleep well: Beauty sleep is most essential to regenerate your cells. Sleep prevents dark circles under eyes. Around 8 to 9 hours of sleep is recommended.
Hair loss is something which is pretty difficult and embarrassing to go through, is it not? So rather than going for new-fangled treatments which may or may not work, would it not be a better idea to resort to homeopathy, which has a track record that speaks for itself?
Hair loss has been treated by homeopathy quite successfully, to say the least. In order to understand how homeopathy can help hair loss, it is important to understand the hair growth cycle in a proper manner, to start with. The cycle consists of three phases, namely the anagen, the catagen and the telogen phases. During the first phase, that lasts anywhere between two to seven years, the hair begins to grow. It is immediately succeeded by the catagen phase, which can last 10 days to a fortnight. What is interesting is that during this phase, the blood supply to the person’s hair stops and the hair dies.
Then, over the course of the telogen phase, which is about two to three months long, the hair ‘rests’. What is fascinating about the process is that every single hair will undergo this, independent of the other hair. The problem of hair loss is when there is a lower amount of hair in the anagen phase, as compared to the other phases.
The medicine which is provided by homeopathy to deal with hair loss depends on the case of hair loss. This can be said to be especially true, due to the fact that homeopathy is something which is very contextual i.e. dependent from person to person.
Anaemia can be one of the reasons for a person losing hair. It’s a condition in which there is not enough iron in the body. If this is the case, the homeopathic medicine which is likely to be prescribed is Borax. However, there are others such as Cinchona Officinalis and Calcarea Phosphorica which are just as good, and may be prescribed by the doctor instead.
Sometimes, when a person experiences hair fall, it occurs only in patches and this case is medically known as alopecia areata. Fluoricum acidum may be made use of, but that is only if the patient is a person who has a short temper. Is homeopathy not fascinating? Phosphorus is not only a chemical compound which is popular in fireworks but in a certain form, it is also a pretty good cure for hair loss!
When the entire scalp loses hair, Lycopodium clavatum is the go to homeopathic medicine generally, though Sulphur may also be used.
