Mid-life skin issues needn’t cause misery according to skin care expert, Ms Angelica Kavouni Cosmetic Surgeon.

It’s not all about super-sweats and crankiness, menopause can also cause skin havoc, with long forgotten acne break outs and rosacea (red, flushed complexion) heading the list.

For many, the menopausal process is underway in our 40’s and usually completes by our early 50’s, with hormonal skin changes becoming increasingly noticeable.

We don’t really fully understand the mechanisms of ageing and its effects on the skin but we do recognise the symptoms and, thanks to modern technology, now have many ways to slow the process, improving skin texture and elasticity.

  • Rosacea
  • Pigment problems
  • Increasing lines and wrinkles
  • Loosening skin (thanks to loss of collagen’s ‘scaffolding’)
  • Resurgence of acne

Maintaining good skin health with a robust skin care regime is vital, and
should include some kind of skin resurfacing to help cell regeneration, keep
inflammation at bay, reduce pigment and scarring and also boost collagen
stores. My patients will testify that I am a big advocate of skin peeling – and
use many different ones during the course of a week. The Mandelic Acid shown in
this clip is a good example of a ‘light’ medical grade peel that tackles all
the issues described above. Its larger molecules means that it takes it’s time
to absorbs and so causes less irritation.

The Mandelic Acid peel can be used weekly for a course of 6 weeks with frequency reducing to once every 2 months or so. *Remember to use sun block SPF30 during any skin resurfacing treatments.

Ultimately, seek advice re the skin care regime suited to you, your issues and your skin type. Menopause can be a distressing time without having the added of adult acne or rosacea. There are many options open to you and to suit your budget – both for home and/or clinic based, medical grade treatments.
