For many of us, our skin care routine is like a beloved old friend—reliable, trustworthy, always there—but no matter how much we may love our routine, it needs to be adjusted now and then. Simply put: What your skin needed in its 20s is not what it wants in your 40s and certainly not what it craves in your 60s. As we age, our skin ages with us and in order to keep it looking young, fresh, and resilient, we have to change up our skin care routine. This is particularly the case during menopause, when less-active hormones can lead to a loss of skin’s lipids and surface oil. The result: Excessively dry, dull, paper-thin skin, with reduced elasticity and resistance. But, don’t throw in the towel just yet. You can restore your youthful glow after menopause, simply by freshening up your skin care routine using a few simple tricks!
Brighten the appearance of your skin tone
Dull skin is a common consequence of age, but it doesn’t have to be! While exfoliating scrubs were great to use in your younger years, now your skin requires a gentler touch. Opt for products formulated with LHA—a micro-exfoliating acid—to illuminate your skin tone. Our favorite? Idéalia Life Serum.
Up your omega fatty acids intake
You should eat a diet rich in healthy omega fatty acids—from foods like salmon, avocado, and coconut oil. Here’s another reason why omega fatty acids have bragging rights: Omega oils can be extremely beneficial for improving skin’s appearance.
Change your oil
As we age our skin loses its natural levels of moisture, so incorporating a skin care product that’s packed with hydration is key. We suggest adding an anti-aging oil concentrate like Neovadiol Magistral Elixir to your beauty arsenal to help get your skin back on track. This multi-purpose product formulated with omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids help leave your complexion super fortified, supple, smooth, and radiant looking. Its formula blend of shea butter, rice bran oil, and safflower seed oil “allow additional protection of the skin’s barrier,” adds Sarah Gora, Ph.D., medical and scientific relations leader of Vichy Canada.
What you’ll love most about Neovadiol Magistral Elixir (besides its ability to replenish your skin with those aforementioned lipids lost with age) is its versatility. Use the product as a serum (apply twice a day before your day or night moisturizer); a balm (mix one or two drops in your palm and combine with your usual moisturizer); or a mask (apply 8-10 drops to skin, leave on for 10 minutes, then wipe away excess).
