On Why Growing Older Is Wonderful

by Shermaine Chua 29 Mar 2024

The 40s, 50s, and beyond bring with them a wealth of experiences and newfound freedom. It's a time when financial stability, self-confidence, and a sense of empowerment take centre stage. Instead of dreading the signs of ageing, let's celebrate the positives and embrace the beauty that comes with it.

One of the remarkable aspects of ageing is the financial stability that often accompanies it. The 40s and beyond typically mark a stage in life where most people are likely to have already established themselves in their careers and enjoy a more secure financial position. This stability allows for the pursuit of passions, travel, and indulgence in self-care, including skincare. Investing in quality skincare and treatments no longer weighs as heavily on the wallet as it used to, but rather, they become a luxurious indulgence to be enjoyed!

What’s more, with age comes the invaluable confidence to speak your mind without being bogged down by societal expectations. You care less about what others think, celebrate your mistakes as lessons learned, and unleash potentials you never knew existed.

Menopause? Just part and parcel of life

Ageing is a natural and inevitable part of life, and menopause, often considered a daunting, life-changing phase, is just another chapter in this journey that most women will have to go through. There’s the hot flashes and the mood swings and one of the most conspicuous indicators of this transition? The sudden onset of dry skin or even acne.


Menopause brings about significant changes in your skin due to hormonal changes. Hormonal changes look and feel different during the different stages of our lives. As teens going through puberty, the surge in hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone lead to an increase in sebum production, causing clogged pores and acne breakouts. As we pass through middle age and experience menopause, our hormones change in a huge way once more. In fact, menopause can be seen as puberty in reverse!

 

What happens during menopause?

During menopause, your body experiences significant hormonal fluctuations. 

  • Estrogen levels fall

The result: Your skin’s epidermis thickens, reducing sebum production to cause your skin to become drier. 

  • Androgen levels rise

The result: Acne breakout.

  • Skin cell turnover slows down

The result: Dead skin cells heap up on the surface of your skin, giving the appearance of uneven, lacklustre skin.

  • Collagen and elastin supply declines

The result: Wrinkles and fine lines form. Your skin also loses its tautness especially around the jaw and neck.

To combat these effects and enhance the positive aspects of ageing, it's essential to tailor your skincare routine to address the specific needs of menopausal skin.
