The Menopause & Collagen

menopause treatments at RITUAL Beauty Salons in Alton Alresford

You will have heard me talk a lot about the menopause over the past few months.

Mostly because I want to be part of the movement to break down the stigma and shame surrounding this perfectly normal and natural progression of womanhood.

And also because I know that the menopause and peri-menopause can have a dramatic effect on the aging of our skin.

But why is that?

Well you may have heard me talking about Collagen and how important it is.

Quick Recap – Collagen is a natural protein produced by the body. I like to think of it as the “scaffolding” of our skin, providing strength and structure, firmness and tone. It’s what makes our skin look plump and healthy, lifted and youthful.

Over time we produce less and less collagen, and this can lead to sagging skin, lack of firmness and tone. It’s often what we notice far earlier than fine lines or wrinkles, and it’s a giveaway of aging skin.

Generally this happens gradually but during the menopause, we get a bit of a shock.

We produce a whopping 30% less collagen in the first 5 years of the peri-menopause and menopause. 30%!

This results in an accelerated aging of the skin, as well as all of the other symptoms to contend with!

But, we have a bespoke, tailored, treatment programme of skincare and aesthetics designed to kick start collagen production, fast!
