Beauty tip of the month

.

When women enter menopause, they experience a drop in estrogen levels, causing their skin to become more thin and dry. The oil glands begin to slow their production of natural emollients that keep the skin soft. This is the time of life when the skin becomes a less efficient barrier against irritants, allergens, and bacteria. Thinner skin is more susceptible to a type of inflammation called dermatitis and more vulnerable to trauma and infections.

All of these changes mean that for women, keeping the skin moist and hydrated is extremely important. The best way to do this is to follow some very old-fashioned advice : Apply moisturizer directly after bathing, while your skin is still damp, to lock in water.
