Are you in Your 50′s? Expert Skincare Advice From Louise Thomas-Minns
What’s going on:
The Menopause. There is a sharp decrease in oestrogen which weakens the collagen and elastin fibres, our skins scaffolding, which causes the skin to lose skin tone. Now more than ever, your skin will need Collagen boosting ingredients & oil based moisturisers due to the decline in hydration. Ensure daily amounts of Essential fats, from your diet are being obtained from sources such as Oily Fish, Walnuts, Chia & Flax seeds.
Rosacea, which is a chronic vascular skin disorder that affects about 1 in 10 people, could now be at its worst. A complex condition which has no definitive cause at present, the redness & inflammatory lesions in the skin can be quite noticeable. Reach for ingredients like Chamomile, Aloe Vera, Blue Azulene and White tea, which can help to keep symptoms at bay.
