When you hit menopause, your body goes through many changes. At Front Range Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, we offer world-class facelift procedures to help you keep your youthful appearance. Once you get a facelift from us, there are some great things you can do to keep your skin healthy and strong. In today’s blog, we’re going to share them!
Clean it gently
- Menopause sometimes brings acne and oily skin; sometimes it brings dry skin. Either way, make sure you’re cleaning it gently. Avoid soap-based products, because they will eliminate your skin’s moisture and make it red. If you have oil skin, go for a oil-free foaming cleanser. If your skin is dry, find a good oil-based cleanser that can preserve your skin’s moisture.
Moisturize with antioxidants
- When shopping for a moisturizer, look for brands that include powerful antioxidants like green tea, vitamin C, and vitamin A. Whether you have oily skin or dry skin, you need to moisturize with antioxidants.
- We recommend you exfoliate every day. If your skin is sensitive, try every other day. Try to avoid scrubs that may tear your skin. Instead, go for chemical exfoliators that will do the job without ripping into your skin. Exfoliating will get rid of acne, dullness, fine lines, and dryness.
- We know you’ve been told to wear sunscreen since forever, but it’s more important now than ever. Your skin is thinning, which makes it vulnerable to sunburn. We recommend you use at least SPF 30 sunscreen all year to protect your skin.
