Transitioning through the stages of menopause can be difficult, as hormonal acne from being a teen reappears, or all the moisture suddenly leaves your skin. We asked our SkinBase Therapists what the top SkinBase Treatments for Menopausal skin were, based on first hand experience with their own clients. Let’s take a look at what they said.

SkinBase Therapist Natalie treats her menopausal clients with both SkinBase Microdermabrasion and Collagen Lift. Read on to find out what she had to say about the two.
Regarding SkinBase Collagen Lift, Natalie said: “Well thinking about it, Collagen Lift is a great treatment for menopausal skin as women can lose 5% collagen a year during menopause. So that is a huge drop off. Skin becomes dryer and itchy because of falling oestrogen so hydration and nurturing the skin is key.”
She continued: “I would also say people are usually changing makeup around that time as mattifying makeup tends to cling to dryer skin. I’ve switched to more dewy, hydrating, illuminating foundations. In my menopausal clients I’ve noticed skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema can also get worse and one of the biggest issues I see is acne which can be awful if they’ve never suffered before. Though it is caused by fluctuating hormones, regular SkinBase Microdermabrasion sessions can help when you’re perimenopausal as it will keep it at bay.”
SkinBase Therapist Amy, from Amy Marsden Beauty and Aesthetics also highlighted Microdermabrasion and Collagen Lift as the top SkinBase Treatments for menopausal clients, saying: “microdermabrasion can help with the acne that can suddenly arrive and Collagen Lift gives that boost to skin.”
Theresa at Moorlands Beauty treats her menopausal clients with SkinBase Collagen Lift, and SkinBase IPL. These are the top treatments for menopausal clients visiting her as they allow clients to feel younger in their skin again. She said:
“Most clients who are menopausal normally have skin barrier and sensitivity issues, or hormonal abnormal hair growth so I always get them on a home-care routine first that puts their skin barrier in a happier place, then they often go onto IPL skin rejuvenation/hair removal or collagen lift as they often want their skin to make then feel younger again.”
Grainne at Devoe Beauty Clinic seconded this, saying “Collagen Lift and IPL Skin Rejuvenation and 100% the correct skincare products with the correct ingredients specifically for their skin type.”
