Skin You Love!
Is your skin less firm than it used to be? Are you noticing pigmentation and dryness? If you’re over 40 then your skin could be reacting to the hormonal changes that are naturally occurring in the body at this time of life.
After some 35 years of menstruation, the oestrogen level declines, which triggers menopause. There are 3 stages to menopause:
- Perimenopause begins several years before menopause with the ovaries gradually producing less oestrogen. This usually starts after the age of 40 however it can start in the 30s or even earlier. Perimenopause lasts up until menopause when the ovaries stop releasing eggs.
- Menopause is the second stage and is official when you have not had a period for a year.
- Post menopause is the period of life after the menopause.
Menopause naturally brings about numerous changes to the female body such as hot flushes, lack of concentration, insomnia, anxiety, loss of bone density, dry skin and hair loss to name a few! So, what about the skin? Well it is important to note that the oestrogen secreted by the ovaries plays a protective role for the skin so the natural changes that occur during menopause can have a major impact.
Changes you may notice are dryness, loss of density and thickness, loss of elasticity, irritation and bruises, pigmentation and slow wound healing. With the reduction of oestrogen, the skin’s ability to produce collagen also declines. This means skin loses its firmness, it becomes thinner, starts to sag and wrinkles become more pronounced.
How can we help You?
GERnétic has recently launched Vital Transfer to treat and support menopausal skin.
A key ingredient used in Vital Transfer is Genistein. This is a phyto-oestrogen found in soy, clover and hops with a structure that mimics oestrogen. It behaves as an anti-oxidant, an anti-inflammatory as well as a collagen producer. With its low molecular weight, Genistein can easily penetrate the skin. As a potent anti-oxidant, Genistein protects against free radical damage. The phyto-oestrogens enable the skin cells to begin producing collagen and elastin again. Skin is able to repair itself and the look and feel of the skin improves.
The perfect addition to Vital Transfer to firm and tone the skin is GERnétic’s Marine Ger Lift. The marine compounds in Ger Lift are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and peptides, which assist cells to produce more collagen and elastin. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles diminishes and skin feels firm and nourished.
This Duo will boost and transform menopausal and ageing skin and you can reclaim skin you truly love.
