Celtic skin is less oily, so while this sounds a virtue, after we hit menopause it begins looking dryer, sooner. And what is worse, it is even more sensitive. Don’t worry… there are 3 things you can do!
First, what you will need to do is search for products that contain nourishing ingredients, which will nourish your skin and restore a number of the protective fatty layer that sebum normally supplies. Don’t worry – this is a healthy layer of skin-friendly oils which feed and protect for instance, anti inflammatory omega 3 oils and antioxidant rich botanical extracts.
Look for moisturisers that contain Argan or rosehip oil full of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Argan is going to be clarified as Argania spinosa on the tag, while rosehip will be shown as Rosa canina. The higher these things are listed, the increased percentage was used in the formulation. A nice moisturiser will feature a greater amount, so expect a matching price tag.
The next thing for Celtic skin is looking for ingredients which are soothing and calming for sensitive skin like jojoba, aloe vera, calendula, marula, rosehip or rosewater. Dry skin is stressed skin. These botanicals bring calm to your skin and let it start renewing itself.
It’s no point wrecking your skin with harsh cleansers and trusting your moisturiser will save the harm. Be gentle, through your whole skincare routine and you’ll see how your skin can heal itself when you give it the ideal ingredients.
Instead, start looking for calming herbs like lavender hydrosol, sea buckthorn, or rosewater. These are anti inflammatory and help soothe skin that’s easily irritated.
Dry skin can also be dehydrated so you want to add moisture from within and without. The sort of moisture dry skin will lap up stems from flowers, think rosewater, aloe vera and lavender distillate. These gorgeous organic ingredients bring greater moisture and make skin dewy soft. Not just that, but they’re at the ideal pH for a healthy skin.
Did you Know?
Herbal extracts when developed and processed with care, contain the life force and energetics of these plants. These premium extracts cost more to produce and are desired by artisan skin care formulators.
Other skin-friendly ingredients to watch out for during menopause are pomegranate, sea buckthorn and hyaluronic acid in addition to an affordable humectant called glycerine. (You may recall your granny’s rosewater, witch hazel and glycerine toner?)
So there you have three ideas to receive your dry skin in check. Look for nourishing omegas and fatty acids, add soothing and calming botanicals and include hydrating extracts. When you change to a gentle yet strong natural skincare regimen and healthy lifestyle, including what you eat, what you drink, your workout and exercise patterns, your dry menopausal skin will change itself. The more nourishing and moisturizing your regular, the faster you will see results.
