Self-Care During the Menopause

Self-Care During The Menopause – Tips from Jacks & Buckley – Nottingham’s Hair & Beauty Experts

As women enter their 50s there is often much to look forward to including newfound independence as children leave home, greater financial stability, lifetime friendships, and a growing confidence at work. 

However, women in their late 40s and 50s also face another layer of change – the onset of the menopause.  Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. It is a result of the gradual decline in the production of reproductive hormones, particularly oestrogen and progesterone, by the ovaries.

This hormonal shift brings about a variety of physical and emotional changes with common symptoms including hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, and changes in sleep patterns.

While menopause is a universal experience for women, the severity and duration of symptoms vary widely. The transition into menopause, known as perimenopause, can span several years, during which women may also face challenges such as bone density loss and an increased risk of cardiovascular issues. 

The good news is there is a variety of treatments that can help you through the challenges that may come with the menopausal journey.

Common Beauty Side-Effects of The Menopause

The menopause can impact the skin, hair, and overall well-being with common beauty side-effects including:

Loss of Skin Elasticity due to a reduction in oestrogen levels.
Dry Skin as the skin’s oil production levels reduce. 
Uneven Skin Tone caused by the fluctuations in hormones and thinner skin.
Thinning Hair & Hair Loss as a result of hormonal shifts
Sparse & Uneven Eyebrows may occur.
