The role of Collagen in combatting menopausal skin changes

The role of Collagen in combatting menopausal skin changes

Ah, menopause! That time in a woman's life when she might start to notice her reflection in the mirror begin to change — skin seems to have forgotten its youthful springiness, and fine lines creep in as if they'd been planning their arrival for years. 

Menopause is a significant phase in a woman's life, marking the end of her menstrual cycles. It's a natural stage of life, but it's also a period that comes with its own set of challenges, especially for the skin. The culprit? A significant drop in oestrogen levels, leading to decreased collagen production, the very protein that keeps our skin looking firm, plump, and, dare we say, youthful.

Collagen: The secret weapon against menopausal skin changes

There's a secret weapon in the battle against menopausal skin changes, and that's collagen supplements. With a little help from science and the natural goodness of collagen, you can give your skin the boost it needs to face menopause head-on, with confidence and grace. Simone Thomas Wellness is here to guide you through this journey with our specially designed collagen supplements, tailored to support your skin's health during this transformative phase.

Understanding menopausal skin changes

Menopause marks a natural transition in the ageing process, typically happening from age 45 to 55, characterised by a drop in oestrogen levels and signalling the end of menstrual periods. This period brings hormonal fluctuations leading to symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, dry skin, or acne-like rashes. The phase leading up to menopause, known as perimenopause, can also present similar experiences. If menopause is causing your skin to breakout, discover more about how our supplements can treat acne.

Here's where collagen supplements come into play. Think of them as your skin's new best friends - ready to replenish what menopause tries to take away.

Did you know that women can lose around 30% of their collagen in the first 5 years of menopause?

Collagen supplements can help boost your body's collagen levels, improving skin elasticity, hydration, and overall appearance.

I started to use SkinQuencher and after three weeks the rash has gone and my skin is looking fabulous. I would just like to say that this supplement is one of the best out there” - Fiona

How to take the SkinQuencher supplement

Simone Thomas Wellness believes that the key to maintaining your health and beauty starts from within.

Firstly, timing is important. You want to take your collagen supplements either:

  • First thing in the morning

  • Last thing at night on an empty stomach

  • One hour after you have finished your meal.

It is also beneficial to take collagen supplements an hour before you exercise to help you to boost your performance during exercise. This can help speed up your recovery time and increase your performance.
