All about bodycare > How does low estrogen affect your skin?

74% of zoomers (ages 45+) have noticed that their skin is changing with age, but many don’t understand why. In fact, a recent study showed that 31% of zoomer women are unaware that declining estrogen can be the cause of changes to their skin and only 8% are using products or therapies to specifically address the hormonal changes to their skin.

We know that our bodies change as we mature, yet our beauty and personal care routines don’t always evolve to address those changes. For women, declining estrogen levels may be experienced with age and can cause dryness, leaving skin feeling itchy and uncomfortable. The result? That go-to lotion you’ve been using for years may suddenly not have the same effect on your skin.

Here some Tips for beautifully aging skin:


 It may seem paradoxical to develop dry skin from standing under a blast of water, but a hot shower parches your skin as the water evaporates. Your skin naturally produces oil that acts as a barrier between skin and the harsh environment of the outside world. Hot water sluices this oil from your skin, stripping it of its protection and leaving it feeling dry, tight and itchy. So always think to moisturize your skin after each shower.

Moisturize Regularly

Give the skin on your entire body the special attention it deserves, but remember that not all moisturizers are created equal. Keep your skin soft and smooth with a moisturizer that targets mature skin needs.

 Enjoy a Skin-Friendly Diet

Antioxidants like vitamin A are great for your skin cells prevent wrinkles, and foods that are high in vitamin C helps to protect your skin from sun damage.

Minimize Exposure to UV Rays

Sun damage is directly linked to skin cancer, but can also cause skin pigment changes and loss of elasticity. Avoid tanning beds and use sunscreen every day.  

Cleanse Gently

Help combat adult acne from fluctuating hormones by cleaning dirt and impurities from your skin daily. Use a gentle, soap-free cleanser that won’t wash away your body’s natural oils.

Stop Smoking

The effects that nicotine has on you blood vessels can speed up the skin’s normal aging process and cause premature wrinkles.
