Today I would like to talk to you about an issue that affects many women during menopause: hormonal rosacea.

As the founder of coeur de beauté and a woman affected by rosacea myself, I would like to help you understand the effects of menopause on our skin and give you valuable care tips to keep our skin healthy and radiant

Menopause and Rosacea: A Special Connection

Menopause marks an important transition in our lives.

During menopause, we experience a continuous decline in progesterone levels in the initial phase, which is why many women experience the first symptoms of rosacea for the first time. The cause is a progesterone deficiency or estrogen dominance.

As menopause progresses, estrogen levels also decrease. Women can often experience slight relief from their rosacea symptoms because the ratio of progesterone and estrogen is balanced again.

However, estrogen plays an important role in maintaining skin elasticity and overall skin appearance. The decrease in estrogen can lead to changes in the skin, such as increased dryness and sensitivity and increased wrinkles.

Less is more!

When it comes to caring for menopausal skin with rosacea, it's important to use gentle and soothing products. Here are some recommendations that can help you take optimal care of your skin:

  • Mild cleansing: Use a mild, non-irritating cleansing lotion or gel to cleanse your skin. Make sure products are free of harsh chemicals and fragrances that could further irritate the skin.
  • Moisturizer: Choose a primarily moisturizing cream or lotion that is specifically designed for sensitive skin. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and aloe vera, which can hydrate and soothe skin.
  • Avoiding irritating substances: Avoid products with fragrances, alcohol, parabens and other potentially irritating ingredients. These can make the skin even more sensitive and worsen rosacea symptoms.
  • Sun protection: Protect your skin from harmful UV radiation by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high sun protection factor every day. Sun exposure can worsen rosacea symptoms and accelerate skin aging.
  • Managing Stress: Menopause can be associated with hormonal fluctuations and stress, which can negatively impact skin health. Look for relaxation techniques like meditation, yoga, or breathing exercises to reduce stress and support your skin.
  • Nutrition and Hydration: Eat a balanced diet rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins. Drink enough water to hydrate and support your skin from the inside out.

    Skin care is individual, and it can take some time to find the right products and routines for your menopausal skin. Be patient and experiment with different combinations to find what suits your skin best.

    Finally, I want to encourage you to love yourself and embrace your skin during menopause. The changes we experience in this phase of life are part of a natural process. With the right care and the necessary self-confidence, you can keep your skin glowing even during menopause and feel comfortable in your own skin. In this new chapter of your life, it is important to take time for self-care and focus on your health and well-being. You deserve to feel beautiful and comfortable in your skin - at any time and in any phase of life.
