Hormonal Aging

A Skin Care Tip from BI Resident Skin Diva, Sherilyn Rhymes

Hormones cause significant changes in the skin; however, there are specific ingredients that will address each of these changes.  The skin becomes more fragile, making it drier and more dehydrated and the barrier function becomes impaired.  Diminished estrogen causes the skin to lose tone.  Increased testosterone causes facial hair and breakouts. The solution:  Use products that contain active ingredients that redensify fragile skin (Padina Pavonica stimulates calcium production & water reservoirs), alleviate dry skin (Soy & Wild Yam), hydrate and restore barrier function (Collaxyl stimulates water reservoirs & the skin repair process). Products must also contain ingredients that mimic the action of estrogen (Iris Florentina) in the skin to preserve the tone and regulate the extra testosterone, thus decreasing facial hair and hormonal breakouts. Consult with your Esthetician to select the products best suited for you. If you don’t have an Esthetician, or have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will be glad to help you.
