If you’re going through hormone replacement therapy, you’re likely feeling younger and more energized. This means you need a skincare routine that keeps your skin looking as young as you feel. That being said, the skin is very sensitive, so it’s crucial to implement a regimented care routine.
Here are some simple and effective tips to help you get started:
Specific care for each skin type. In order to take care of and respect your skin, first and foremost make sure to choose products specially designed for your skin type. For example, dry skin does not have the same needs as oily skin.
Pay special attention to fragile areas. Some parts of your face (eye contour, lips, etc.) have particularly fine, fragile skin. They need specific care, especially the eye contour and the lips. These areas of your face are more sensitive and deserve special attention.
Gentle Cleansing. Taking care of sensitive skin begins with make-up removal. In order not to stress your skin and to respect its natural balance, make sure to use a pH-neutral make-up remover, specially formulated to cleanse your epidermis gently.
Eyes: a risk area. The eye contour skin is ten times finer than the skin on the rest of the face. Choose a specific routine for make-up removal in this area.
Exfoliation is indispensable. Use a suitable exfoliation treatment once or twice a week. It must be effective yet gentle and respectful. Choose a pH-neutral exfoliation product, which is perfect for smoothing and purifying the skin while respecting its natural balance.
Moisturizing is essential. The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis, 15%. In order to keep the skin well moisturized, it is important to choose daily moisturizing skin care products that balance the level of water within the skin. You may also want to use a moisturizing mask regularly, removing the excess oil with a spring water spray.
Sun protection. Whatever the season, choose daily skincare products that include solar filters. They reduce the harmful effects of the sun, which accelerates skin aging.
Watch out for external stress. Pollution, smoke, stress… All these have harmful effects on the skin. Use skincare products to protect your skin against these daily stresses before leaving the house and cleanse your skin thoroughly when you come home in the evening.
Don’t neglect the lips. As soon as you feel the need, use a restorative cream for the lips. Do not hesitate to reapply to this particularly fragile area as often as necessary.
