You adapt your skincare ritual as you follow the seasons around the year. But, what about adapting it as you transition through your phases of life, such as choosing skincare for menopause?
At Pink Moon, we talk a lot about how life comes in phases, menopause being one of them. While just the thought of this time might stir up all kinds of emotions, we like to think of it as another journey that leads to a new destination. Throughout the course of this journey, you might encounter a fair share of experiences that test both your physical and emotional self. These tests give you the chance to give life to a new woman, one who upon arrival will be wiser and stronger in both body and mind.
There are ways to slide into this transition easier. First off, your mindset. How you approach or perceive this time prior to entering can affect the one you have. That means that even if you have not yet entered this phase, having overall negative thoughts may actually lead to a more uncomfortable experience.
Second, your skincare. If you have never had a ritual before, it’s never too late to start one. This is more than about applying products. By creating a ritual that’s based on your current phase, in this case skincare for menopause, you’re taking the time to connect with yourself and honoring your body’s needs. You’re recognizing that you are an ever-blossoming being, which is a celebration of you and nature’s divine cycle in itself.
Your skin reflects what’s going on inside your body. With the decrease of estrogen, the skin’s ability to repair itself begins to slow down, leading to changes such as thinning, dryness and less elasticity. Should you already have entered this phase, pay attention to your complexion and check in with yourself. Do you notice any connections between how your skin looks and how your body feels? Live this experience mindfully.
Hydration along with extra moisturizing ingredients are essential to keeping your complexion healthy and your skin barrier strong during this period. Some heroes include sunflower oil, castor oil, cocoa butter, white tea, carrot seed oil, tamanu and evening primrose. This is the time to opt for a ritual that is overall more gentle and more nourishing that won’t strip your skin of its precious natural oils.
