Catering to the Unique Needs of Menopausal Skin
To achieve a radiant and balanced complexion during menopause, active ingredients are key. Pestle and Mortar’s Superstar Retinoid Night Oil and Vitamin C 2 Phase Serum offer a revitalizing AM/PM treatment routine. Designed to refine skin tone, reduce signs of ageing, and deliver noticeable brightness, these products harness the rejuvenating and anti-ageing effects of Vitamin C and retinol.
Menopause often causes dryness and loss of skin elasticity. Pure Hyaluronic Acid, a silky-smooth hydration powerhouse that locks in moisture and reduces fine lines and wrinkles, ensures mature skin remains plump and hydrated. The brand’s flagship product is the ultimate multi-tasker for mature skin – treatment, hydrator, and primer all-in-one.
Hormonal Spot Care
Hormonal changes during menopause can sometimes lead to unexpected breakouts. Pestle & Mortar’s latest innovation, The Spot Dots, are ultra-thin hydrocolloid patches enriched with salicylic acid and tea tree oil, designed to neutralise blemishes overnight while simultaneously healing damaged skin.
Dry & Sensitive Skin
During menopause, dry and sensitive skin is another common symptom that occurs due to the skin’s loss of estrogen. Which means you need to be extra careful about what you’re using on it. Avoid comedogenic creams and products containing ingredients that clog pores—these include but are not limited to: parabens, mineral oil, alcohol, lanolin and cocoa butter. Some people also find that fragranced skincare products cause irritation during this time of life. Making a few tweaks in your skincare routine can help minimise the excessive dryness and other symptoms associated with menopausal and perimenopausal skin.
