Why am I developing acne after menopause?

Monday, August 02, 2021

 Menopause brings about a variety of changes to your skin, one of which is breakouts. You may be curious as to why this is happening and what you can do about it.

During menopause, many women experience changes in their skin. For some women, this means dry skin, age spots, or a bruising tendency. Others see a decline in estrogen levels while male hormone levels, such as testosterone, stay constant, resulting in acne breakouts.

While you may be tempted to reach for teen acne remedies, your skin may not be able to take these harsh treatments as well as it did when you were younger. Look for products that can help clear your pores without overdrying your skin, such as those containing salicylic acid. If your acne isn't responding to therapy, schedule an appointment with a dermatologist.

I am currently exploring Scotland, and I must say it's beautiful. I used to live in Ukraine, but I now reside in Glasgow due to leaving because of the war. I am discovering myself in this new country, working, wearing beautiful dresses, and making the most of life. Did I mention that I speak English, Igbo, and Russian? How are you doing today?
