THE MENOPAUSE & YOUR SKIN
Women can experience different skin changes during perimenopause & the menopause which increases the chance of getting wrinkles.
Menopause & sun protection
Sun protection is a must for all skin types as part of your daily skin care, the younger you start using it the better quality your skin will be as you age.
Tancream gives you HIGH protection with SPF50 (the SPF prevents burning) with an ULTRA 5-star UVA protection (prevents premature ageing)
The drop in oestrogen causes lack of collagen production, which slows down as we age. Women in menopause lose 30% of their collagen in the first five years it then decreases around 2% per year.
The skin becomes thin & has a saggy appearance so we need to try and increase collagen production.
Menopause & the best products to use
Two great products are:-
Tancream daily moisturiser with SPF50, 5-star UV, instant bronzer & a natural graduals self-tan for face & body
The skin is also much more susceptible to sun damage so wearing an SPF 50 as part of your daily morning moisturiser is essential. Tancream is the perfect product, it not only gives you SPF 50, 5 star UVA sun protection but it also gives you an instant colour on application which evens out the skin tone & a natural gradual self-tan that leaves you with a healthy glow.
Deborah Hirzel Miss Classic British Isles has worn SPF 50 for 20 years and says it has definitely helped her skin – she now uses Tancream to give her the protection & the glow.

Menopause & exercise
Exercise is also very important for skin health as it trains muscle development which stimulates collagen production. It also prevents atrophy which causes skin sagging – try Nina Lancaster Busy Women Fitness on Facebook she has a wide range of different classes to join as well as Pilates and sofa workouts.

Menopause & Oily skin
This menopause skin change occurs because oestrogen levels decrease and natural testosterone levels are no longer masked. This imbalance causes the testosterone hormone in our bodies to stimulate extra oil production.
If you do have a menopause skin change to oily skin, it is not all bad – women with oily skin don’t get as many wrinkles.
If you experience oily skin, you may also experience menopause acne which typically occurs because, when oestrogen levels drop, androgen levels remain the same. Tancream is perfect as it allows the skin to breathe & protects your skin – it is also Dermatology endorsed & clinically proven to prevent premature ageing.

Menopause & Sensitive skin
Menopause and sensitive skin can suddenly occur, reduced oestrogen levels are linked to high pH levels which cause skin sensitivity.
Make sure you moisturise regular with a non-fragranced product and one that allows your skin to breathe.
Tancream is the perfect product to use as it is fragrance free and glides easily on the skin
Menopause & dry skin
This occurs because of the oestrogen levels dropping which decreases collagen production and an increase in pH levels.
Low collagen levels mean that our skin won’t produce as much natural oil, so it will become dry and flaky.
Tancream is the perfect product to use as a daily moisturiser as it is very hydrating, scientifically proven & dermatology endorsed
