Estrogen helps to keep skin hydrated, plump, and elastic. As estrogen levels decline during menopause, skin can become thinner, drier, and more wrinkled.

The most common skin changes during menopause include: * Dryness * Thinning * Wrinkles * Age spots * Acne * Sensitivity

Use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer.  Avoid harsh soaps and cleansers, which can strip your skin of its natural oils. Look for a moisturizer that is specifically designed for dry or mature skin.

Apply sunscreen every day,  even on cloudy days. Sunscreen helps to protect your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays, which can accelerate skin aging and increase your risk of skin cancer.

 Exfoliate regularly.  Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells and reveal the brighter, healthier skin underneath. Use a gentle exfoliator two to three times per week.

Get enough sleep. Sleep is essential for overall health and well-being, including skin health. Aim for seven to eight hours of sleep per night.

Manage stress.  Stress can worsen skin problems such as acne and eczema. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as exercise, yoga, or meditation.

Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.   Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can damage your skin and accelerate skin aging.
