Life can be demanding. Our normal day is filled with lots of potential stressors – work, finances, personal relationships. To make matters worse, you’re never really “unplugged,” because technological advancements ensure that you’re constantly connected, robbing you of the precious “downtime” you need to rejuvenate.
Stress affects our lives in a lot of different ways, physically and mentally. While many of those negative effects are well-known – weight gain, sleep problems, heart disease, depression, etc. – you may not realize that it’s also wreaking havoc on your skin.
Stress can manifest itself as blemishes, hives, rashes, fever blisters and premature aging. The good news is that you can control stress by managing your response to it.
Menopause. It can start when you’re in your forties, or wait until your late fifties. It will often surprise you with a hot flash, or creep in at midnight when you can’t sleep or have little interest in sex. It also, often, coincides with other major life challenges.
On a physiological level, menopause involves the loss of estrogen, a critical component to healthy skin. Skin becomes more prone to sun damage, age spots, and thinning. But that’s not all.
Because estrogen stimulates fat deposits, without it, weight redistributes itself, often in the waist or thighs and buttocks. Wrinkles appear and breasts begin to sag.
Additionally, while estrogen levels drop, androgens such as testosterone stay constant and can trigger facial hair and blemishes reminiscent of your teen years.
What can you expect to happen during menopause? See the stages below.
