As women age and approach menopause, our oestrogen levels naturally decline, having a major effect on the body and an impact on our skin - the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid drops. As a result, skin loses its bounce and firmness.
Skin expert Deborah Mitchell explains why CACI is a ‘firm favourite’ of hers:
Skin needs stimulation to stay looking young. Jowls are such an age give away. This is where my love of CACI microcurrent kicks in – hyperlinks to CACI signature non-surgical facial toning and jowl lift
CACI’s Wrinkle Comb technology also helps to stimulate collagen (a needle-free alternative to dermal fillers) giving skin a more youthful glow. The unique handset transmits high frequency electrical stimulation simultaneously with LED light, which stimulates an increase in elastin and the production of collagen. Hyperlink to technology
Look for peptides in your skincare - peptides are great for menopausal skin as they will stimulate collagen production and boost the skin’s elasticity. Hyperlink to Skincare
CACI Tip: When applied topically to the skin, peptides in our skin care act as messengers, triggering skin cells to perform specific functions, building collagen and elastin, helping to revitalise skin and make it stronger and more resilient.
Aside from professional treatments, a regular firming facial massage, as part of an at home routine, can play a big part to help lift the skin.
CACI Tip: Hold the flats of your thumbs together, starting under the chin from the centre, moving outwards in opposite directions in one swift firm motion towards the bottom corners of the ears, hold for four to six seconds. Repeat three times, in the morning or evening.
Outside factors can also speed up ageing, such as too much sun and alcohol. Moderate your alcohol intake. CACI Tip: Alcohol (red wine in particular) can exacerbate common menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes.
Rest and quality sleep (7-8 hours a night) is essential for keeping healthy and glowing.
