Will My Skin Improve with HRT?

Will My Skin Improve with HRT?

At Nakin we are dedicated to helping skin look its best naturally, with our award-winning anti-ageing skincare. Our skincare is designed for all ages and is great for menopause and beyond. However good our skincare routine is though there are biological changes to our skin that we cannot completely control, and especially during menopause. During perimenopause and menopause many of us will start using HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) to help to combat the symptoms of our changing hormone levels. It is a personal decision for everyone and needs to be considered with a doctor that has all of our medical history. One of the questions you might be wondering is if taking HRT will improve your skin, and the answer is yes it can.

Menopause is a time when our skin will have the biggest change of our life and skin ageing can show up quite rapidly after the menopause, especially from the decline of oestrogen. The common effects on skin are that it becomes thinner, our lines and wrinkles increase in number and depth, there is an increase in dryness, plus a decrease in elasticity and firmness. The Clinical Intervention on Aging journal found that HRT has been found to increase epidermal hydration, skin elasticity and thickness, plus reduce skin wrinkles, and enhance the content and quality of collagen. So, the answer is yes, HRT can improve the way our skin looks and feels by increasing our hormone levels.

There is also another benefit to skin that comes from the increase in energy that HRT can provide. If we feel more energetic then it naturally follows that we will spend more time looking after ourselves. There will be more energy for skincare, more time for healthy eating, and an increased likelihood of us being active. This goes on to complete the circle further as if we are feeling happy and healthy then we will probably produce less stress hormones, and all of these factors feed into the health of our whole system, including skin.

However much HRT can improve our skin it is something that is a very considered decision, as not everyone can take HRT for a variety of reasons. We hope that you have found this post useful, if you are looking to improve the way that your skin looks and feels then take a look at our natural skincare products below.
