YOU’VE NEVER BEEN MORE SE­CURE WITH YOUR VO­CA­TION OR HAD SO MUCH FREE TIME TO EX­PLORE LIFE. HOW­EVER, FOR WOMEN, THERE IS MA­JOR DRAMA PLAY­ING OUT WITH

THE ON­SET OF MENOPAUSE.

What’s im­por­tant now?

The drop in es­tro­gen causes a rapid re­duc­tion in col­la­gen, elastin con­tent and se­bum pro­duc­tion, says Jen Newell, a natur­opath spe­cial­iz­ing in holis­tic der­ma­tol­ogy at the In­te­gra­tive Health In­sti­tute in Toronto. As a re­sult, your skin can sud­denly seem thin­ner, dry and more wrin­kled.

What should you be do­ing?

Ad­dress thirsty skin with de­cent mois­tur­iz­ers that nour­ish with­out clog­ging pores. As well, you’ll want to fo­cus on coun­ter­act­ing the ef­fects of wan­ing col­la­gen and elastin with in­gre­di­ents that aim to plump loose, sag­ging skin and re­gen­er­ate new skin tis­sue.
