Our skin doesn’t stay the same forever. In fact, there are several factors that can influence both the overall appearance and condition of your skin. Changes in climate, diet, and health can all alter the skin’s natural state. For women specifically, stress, pollution, pregnancy and menopause can all cause hormonal imbalances that can lead to a variety of new skin concerns. Skinceuticals, a line of medical grade skin care carried at our clinic, has broken down some of their most effective products for dealing with hormonal changes to the skin.
Imbalances Leading to Dryness can cause the skin to feel dehydrated, dull and flaky. These imbalances may be caused during menopause, leading to the skin aging faster than before. The Skinceuticals A.G.E Interrupter is ideal for dealing with menopausal imbalances by replenishing lost moisture and reducing the look of crepiness. This advanced wrinkle treatment is packed full of active ingredients such as proxylane, blueberry extract and phytosphingosine to comfort dry skin, provide essential nourishment and visibly improve the appearance and proliferation of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture.
Imbalances caused by pregnancy may lead to changes in the skin such as loss of moisture, elasticity and increased sensitivity. The Phyto Corrective Essence Mist is designed to immediately increase hydration through ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and a phyto botanical blend of boldus leaf, cucumber, thyme, olive leaf, and rosemary extracts. These ingredients work together to soothe and calm the skin while reducing visible redness.
Imbalances caused during the menstrual cycle can lead to a ramp up in oiliness and acne. These monthly cycles can cause an increase in sebum production, causing skin to look greasy and often an increase in breakouts. The Blemish + Age Defense Acne Serum is the ideal product to help combat menstrual acne by mitigating the look of blemishes through an optimal alpha- and beta-hydroxy acid formulation. Containing 2% dioic acid, this serum is well equipped to reduce excess sebum production, decongest clogged pores and improve the appearance of blemishes, blotchiness, and uneven skin tone.
