Ah, Perimenopause, the transitional phase before menopause, that brings about numerous changes in a woman’s body, including significant shifts in hormone levels. Good times, am I right?!

Now while these hormonal fluctuations can impact various aspects of health, one area where the effects are particularly noticeable is the skin.

Understanding perimenopausal skin changes and discovering effective solutions (spoiler alert, incorporating a face oil into your peri/menopause skincare routine will definitely help)  can assist us navigate this stage with confidence.


Understanding Perimenopausal Skin Changes:

During perimenopause, the ovaries gradually produce less estrogen, leading to hormonal imbalances. Estrogen plays a crucial role in maintaining the skin’s moisture, elasticity and thickness. As its levels decline, the skin’s ability to retain moisture diminishes, resulting in dryness, tightness and an overall dull appearance.

Additionally, collagen and elastin, proteins responsible for maintaining skin structure and elasticity, start to decline. This loss leads to the development of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Hormonal fluctuations can also trigger increased oil production, causing acne breakouts, especially along the jawline and chin.

5 Ways Bettyquette Face Oils Can Help Your Perimenopausal Skin

1. Restoring Moisture

Our natural face oils are packed with nourishing ingredients including essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which work to replenish the skin’s moisture barrier. They help lock in hydration, combatting the dryness and tightness often experienced during perimenopause.

2. Enhancing Elasticity

Certain oils, such as rosehip seed oil and argan oil, both of which are in our nourishing night oil, Sleep On It, are rich in vitamins and antioxidants that promote collagen production and improve skin elasticity. Regular use can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helping restore a youthful complexion.

3. Balancing Oil Production

Both our face oils are non-comedengic, meaning they won’t clog your pores. In fact, they cleverly do the opposite by regulating oil production in the skin, preventing excessive sebum secretion. They provide the skin with the essential fatty acids it needs, tricking the skin into thinking it has enough oil, which can help reduce breakouts and acne flare-ups.

4. Soothing Inflammation

Perimenopausal skin may become more sensitive and prone to inflammation. Bettyquette face (and body!) oils are formulated with gentle, non active ingredients that calm irritated skin, reducing redness and inflammation.

5. Boosting Radiance

The luxurious texture and natural ingredients in our face oils provide an instant glow and luminosity to the skin. I mean, our hydrating face oil is called Get Up And Glow for a reason! Both Get Up And Glow and Sleep On It  help improve skin texture, making it appear smoother and more radiant.

Understanding the underlying causes of these changes and exploring suitable solutions, such as incorporating face oils into your skincare routine, can help alleviate the symptoms and restore your skin’s vitality.

By choosing face oils that are specifically formulated to address perimenopausal skin concerns, you can replenish moisture, improve elasticity, balance oil production, and promote a radiant complexion.
