Have Acne? Wrinkles? Find Out Why (And What to Do)
Understanding the hormonal changes your body is going through can help you keep pesky skin problems to a minimum
So, what specifically should menopausal women use? Murad recommends "products that contain essential fatty acids (like Lancôme Bienfait Multi-Vital Night, $50) and plant-derived phytoestrogens" saying that they will "help to replenish hormones that diminish with age, bringing life back to a lackluster complexion and slowing the sagging process."
He also recommends "using an eye cream with a broad based SPF during the day to protect against both UVA and UVB radiation (try Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Eye Contour Care SPF 30, $28) and a hydrating/moisturizing eye cream in the evening that contains a soy extract." (Try Refresh Me Under Eye Cream with Vitamin K, $36 or Aveeno Positively Radiant Eye Cream, $16.)
