How to protect your skin from the effects of hormonal aging

How to protect your skin from hormonal aging
As women age, their wisdom and confidence may grow, but the same cannot be said of their hormone levels. Many women are not aware of the impact that menopause has on their hormone levels, and in turn, their skin.
During menopause, the ovaries begin to stop producing the hormone estrogen, which causes collagen levels to decrease. Estrogen naturally stimulates and boosts collagen production. Collagen promotes skin thickness and elasticity and gives the skin its firmness, fullness, and structure. In the first five years after menopause, the skin loses up to 30% of its collagen.
Decreased estrogen leads to decreased collagen levels
Decreasing collagen levels lead to diminished skin strength and elasticity. The body’s ability to repair and replace collagen diminishes as estrogen levels decrease. This causes accentuated wrinkles to develop, particularly on the forehead, eyes, and mouth. You lose some fat under your skin and your skin’s elasticity decreases. That combined with dryness causes sagging that is particularly visible around the cheeks, jawline, and neck. Hyaluronic acid and oil production also drops, which causes dryness.
What Can Be Done to Combat Waning Estrogen Levels?

Experts believe that the effects menopause has on the skin can be minimized if women act in advance by beginning a comprehensive maintenance program in their early thirties. Following a strict skincare regimen can keep your skin hydrated and younger-looking for longer by boosting collagen and increasing skin cell turnover.
There are many things you can do to minimize the effect of hormonal aging during and after menopause. Avoid anything that decreases collagen levels, such as smoking, poor nutrition, stress, and poor hydration. Wear sunscreen with minimum SPF 30 daily to protect your skin and help prevent new wrinkles from forming.

Cleansing your skin is an important part of your skincare routine, but your skin gets drier as you age, so it’s important to use a hydrating cleanser that doesn’t strip moisture away. After you wash your face, apply a rich moisturizer while your skin is still damp to boost hydration. In addition, apply a collagen mask two to three times per week to deeply hydrate your skin and brighten your complexion. Eat antioxidant- and water-rich fruits and vegetables. A nutritious diet can fight the breakdown and weakening of collagen.
Avoid taking long, hot showers to prevent your skin from drying out. You should also aim to get plenty of sleep and to exercise on a regular basis in order to combat the effects of hormonal aging. Drink a collagen beauty drink on a regular basis to make your skin stronger from the inside out. The benefits of collagen drinks include the following:

  • Increased skin elasticity and hydration
  • Firmer and fuller skin
  • Smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stronger hair and nails
Using the right products can help defend the skin from hormonal aging. Collagen beauty supplements replenish lost collagen and reduce the signs of aging.

If you’ve searched for anti-aging solutions at any point in the last few years, you’ve likely come across some sort of collagen product promising smoother, firmer skin. Like kale was the powerhouse health staple in the early 2000s, collagen is the new “it” ingredient—particularly in the skincare world. That’s because collagen is to skin like calcium is to your bones or vitamin C is for immunity. Why? A whopping 75% to 80% of our skin is made up of collagen , and it lays the groundwork for youthful, uplifted, firm and bouncy skin.

But here’s the thing—consuming any food source or supplement containing collagen won’t bestow the results you can see and feel. People are flocking toward bone broth and collagen powders without considering one crucial factor: the collagen’s ability to actually reach the skin and effect visible change once it’s consumed. You see, collagen molecules in their natural state are too large to be digested and absorbed—and they’re certainly not getting to the skin.

In simple terms, your body can’t deliver regular collagen to where it needs to be. What you need to look for is a very specific type of collagen with excellent bioavailability; in other words, you need collagen that actually enters your body’s circulation system so it can effectively work its magic.

Most of us take sleep for granted as sleeping is a basic human need, like breathing, eating, or drinking water.  You've probably heard it a thousand times, from your mom to your doctor, why it's important to have quality sleep as it will affect the way you look, feel, and perform throughout the day. 

Getting sufficient sleep is vital to your health and well-being, as the body works to repair and restore itself while you sleep. If you don’t get enough sleep, you secrete fewer hormones and slow down the body’s repair  processes. Unfortunately, many of us lead busy, over scheduled lives and don't get the amount of sleep time we need each night. We probably won't even notice the difference until the signs of aging shows up on our skin, hair and body.

Chronic sleep deprivation has been linked to cancer, diabetes, obesity, immune deficiency and most recently, it has been scientifically proven that can also result in premature aging.

To understand how and why lack of sleep has such a significant impact on our body, it's important to understand what happens when we sleep.

I grew up just outside of San Francisco. We lived in a nice cul-de-sac of newly constructed homes. I remember being in 3rd grade moving away from our smaller, older home in the Sunset district known for its side-by-side houses and fog.

To me, the other families around us seemed to be normal and happy—young families creating lives together.

Two girls who went to the same elementary school as my brothers and I lived a few houses away with their parents. From the outside, their lives seemed perfectly happy. They went to school just like us. Their parents would wave to us as we drove by and would stop by if we were outside and talk with my parents.

Then it all changed. We would hear arguing once in a while. Then the arguing became more frequent and more intense. Eventually, we stopped seeing the father doing normal household chores like taking out the garbage or washing the cars. Word spread that the parents had separated and gotten divorced.

Overnight, their mother looked like she had aged 10 years. What was once jet black hair had gone gray. What was once a youthful glow in her skin became a shade of drab.

How did she age so quickly? How was this possible? This was one of my first memories seeing stress drain the youth out of someone’s appearance.

Now that we got that out of the way, what causes this rapid aging?
