It’s time to talk about menopausal skin

For far too long, menopause has been a taboo word. For years, women and people with ovaries suffered in silence and shame through menopause. But now with the advancement of medicine and wellness, menopause doesn’t need to be a shameful subject.

Over half (56%) of women didn’t realise they were in the peri/menopause and almost half (49%) said the symptoms started much earlier than they were expecting.  That said, 63% had an ‘aha’ moment when they realised the symptoms they’d experienced were related to the perimenopause and it all started to make sense.

In fact, menopause is a significant and symbolic voyage in womanhood, and the start of an exciting new chapter of life. PRAI Beauty has teamed up with M&S to offer MenoGlow, a liberating new range of beauty and wellness products to use during menopause.

Top 5 skincare for menopause products

As women begin their menopause journey they will be faced with significant changes to the body’s natural chemistry. Oestrogen levels fall, leading to loss of collagen and elasticity, as well as dehydration, sagging and dullness of the skin. And of course, one can’t forget the dreaded hot flushes.

We’ve put together a list of our top 5 products from PRAI beauty to help guide you through your menopause journey.

1. MenoGlow Hot Flush Cool Fix Serum

Menopause can sometimes leave you feeling hot and bothered. Combat those dreaded hot flushes with the MenoGlow Hot Flush Cool Fix Serum, a refreshing rollerball gel. Instantly relieving and cooling hot, flushed skin, this serum can reduce signs of ageing caused by dramatic collagen loss around the time of menopause. Keep cool and roll on.
