Menopause and skincare

The common culprits

I have been getting a lot of questions about skin problems just lately and have written about it in the Menopause Top 10 Explained. However, another issue of skin care is really important – what you put on it. If you count up how many different products you put on your skin on a daily basis it is quite staggering!

Shower gels/soap, shampoos, deodorants, body creams, perfume, hair products, make- up – to name but a few. (Try counting these up for yourself and prepare to be surprised!) All of these contain a whole raft of chemicals, some of them really nasty, and you are putting combinations of these on your skin day after day. The menopause puts a tremendous strain on your system generally and this can result in far more sensitive skin and the likelihood of it becoming more easily irritated. Do remember that these chemicals get absorbed into your system, straining it further.

Natural alternatives

So, what to do? Firstly, don’t just take my word for it and check it out for yourself (see www.ewg.org) If you then feel that you want to make changes, gradually introduce organic products into your beauty regime. Yes, they can be a bit more expensive but most healthshops will have good quality, affordable products and, as that ad says, ‘You are worth it’!

Why not have a look at our natural creams:

Comfrey Cream can be used as a day and night and hand cream
Echinacea Cream can be used to help maintain the condition of your skin.
Bioforce Cream can be used to soothe, soften and nourish the skin.

REMEMBER! Just because a product says it contains natural and/or organic ingredients on the label doesn’t mean to say it is 100% natural – it can still contain lots of nasties as well, so do double check the ingredient list before you buy. Manufacturers only need to put 1% organic material in the product to be able to promote it as such!

What organic products do you use within your beauty regime? I would love to hear about your favourite products.
