Could Hormone Replacement Therapy Give You Softer Skin?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), also know as estrogen replacement therapy, is commonly prescribed for alleviating the side effects of menopause. Usually taken in pill form, HRT can contain just estrogen or a mix of estrogen and progesterone.

Interestingly, recent research suggests that HRT may also improve the skin's water-holding capabilities, which could lead to more supple skin and few wrinkles.

However, even though it may help with menopauses' skin changes, it could also increase the chance of discoloration.

Also included in the risks are an increased chance of breast cancer, stroke and heart disease, all of which differ depending on your health and the type of HRT.
