How to treat perimenopausal skin

Peri-menopause typically starts in your mid-40s and refers to the time when periods start to become more irregular. This can last anywhere from 4 to 8 years, and can come with a variety of symptoms, including acne. 

Thought you left acne behind in your teens? For many, acne can be a part of life long after turning 20, especially during perimenopause. During this time, hormone levels fluctuate (remember those days of intense mood swings when you were 15?) which can trigger hormonal acne.

The Science

It all lies in the wonderful molecules that are known as hormones. Whilst they’re often attributed solely to stroppy teens, hormones are chemical messengers made by our bodies to help coordinate bodily functions. From metabolism to growth and development, hormones play a key part. 

When someone enters perimenopause, there is a drop in oestrogen levels and a rise in testosterone. Alongside acne and dryness, many women notice increased sensitivity, redness and flushing

The Skin

The entire By Sarah London range is designed for stressed, sensitive skin, putting high-quality ingredients at the top of our priority list. Our Hero Facial Oil is blended with organic Sweet Almond, Pumpkin Seed, Argan and Vitamin E so you can relax knowing that this bottle of goodness is going to soothe your skin whilst restoring any lost moisture. 

Hot flushes got you feeling down? Our Reviver Hydrating Mist is perfect for on-the-go nourishment and refreshment to cool you down whilst replenishing your skin’s microbiome. Formulated with Desert Rose Moisture Retention Complex, proven to boost the skin’s moisture levels by 71% in just 24 hours, it's the perfect companion to keep in your bag when travelling around.

Banish the breakouts

Adult acne can be a real confidence-knock to many of us and the last thing we need when having to deal with everything else going on around us. All we ask is that you keep the harsh exfoliators and treatments at the back of the bathroom cupboard. These can be incredibly irritating to your already sensitive skin, making the problem even worse.

Instead, try our Ally Blemish Recovery Oil, designed to soothe inflamed skin whilst zapping spots. The powers come from our carefully selected organic plant oils that repair and strengthen the skin barrier to rebalance your skin. The upcycled Hemp Seed Oil contains 52% more antioxidants than non-upcycled hemp seeds, combating cell damage and aiding in skin recovery. 

We know that this time can be incredibly stressful, and the last thing you want is to spend hours on the internet trying to find sensitive skincare products that are going to work with your skin, rather than against it. That’s why we created our Menopause Balancing Bundle, curated to rebalance, restore, and revive skin that’s going through perimenopause and menopause. The best part? By purchasing the bundle, you’ll save 17% compared to purchasing the products individually. What can we say - you deserved a treat. 

Time to go show off your gorgeous skin…or just send a picture to your best friend because you really just need some peace and quiet. We don’t blame you!
