We all know how important it is to wear sunscreen every day, regardless of the weather and season. But it’s especially important for those going through menopause because the skin is thinner and more susceptible to damage.
In addition to applying sunscreen, applying moisturizers can help hydrate menopausal skin from the outside; but it’s also important to hydrate from the inside. Drinking eight glasses of water a day is imperative. Additionally, a diet void of essential fatty acids can cause dryness and itchiness, so load up on omega-3 fatty acid, which can be found in foods like salmon and nuts.
You may also want to consider the way you wash. The skin on both your face and body should be cleansed with cold water on a daily basis. Hot showers and steam facials are fine once in a while, but not every day, since they can dry out menopausal skin even more.
