The transition into menopause can affect your skin. Most woman do not realize the hormone fluctuations associated perimenopause can cause a variety of skin issues.  Women are well aware of the internal changes such as hot flashes, night sweats, changes in sleep patterns, and low libido; however, even small fluctuations in hormones can cause the skin to begin to age faster.  Suddenly, women notice more fine lines and wrinkles, dry and itchy skin, and skin that has lost its brightness and glow.

Hormone changes can affect the skin in different ways depending on whether levels are either falling or imbalanced.

Falling female hormone levels Decreasing protein and collagen synthesis causes skin to lose the fatty layer underneath which would normally provide a supple and thicker foundation. This results in thinning of the skin making it more prone to wrinkles, dryness, itchiness, and sun damage.

Hormone imbalance In addition to falling hormones, some women experience a hormone imbalance where some hormones may be too high while others are too low.  This imbalance can trigger acne break outs and the appearance of brown “age spots” which can occur in previously sun exposed areas including the face, neck, arms, and chest.

Why your skin care may have lost its effectiveness? With all these changes occurring on the skin, some women find their previous skin care products are no longer working or some even develop sensitivities to products they have used for years.  For these reasons, we developed Smooth Transition Adaptive Skin Care. A new kind of skin care formulated to address the multiple, external changes in perimenopausal and menopausal skin.

Our Adaptive Skin Care is formulated with special ingredients. In addition to cleansing, moisturizing, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it also addresses skin issues associated with hormonal imbalances due to menopause including age spots, overly dry and irritated skin, reddened skin and patchy, flaky skin.

We offer a 4 product vegan regimen that includes a moisturizing day cream, a gentle, creamy cleanser, a skin perfecting elixir, and a therapeutic night cream. 

Gentle Creamy Cleanser
Our cleanser was designed to effectively remove make up and debris with sensitive skin in mind. It is a non-foaming cleanser with a light citrus scent. The highlighted ingredients of this product are grape seed extract, red clover flower, and clove oil which are immune boosting, natural antimicrobials, and powerful antioxidants.

Skin Perfecting Elixir
Our skin perfecting elixir is full of moisturizing wild oats, jojoba, and aloe to rejuvenate dry, dull skin, and improve your radiant glow.  Our elixir contains special antiaging ingredients including broccoli seed oil, which is a powerful antioxidant and a natural protectant from UV rays, and hyaluronic acid, nature’s best fine line minimizer and moisturizer. 

Moisturizing Day Cream
Our moisturizing day cream protects your skin naturally from the sun and environmental exposures while working to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Our special ingredients include watermelon and apple fruit extracts which are rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, and amino acids to protect our skin and slow the aging process and hyaluronic acid to improve skin’s elasticity and plumpness.

Therapeutic Night Cream
Every woman needs a rich, nourishing night cream to lift, tone, and perfect the skin overnight.  Organic coconut oil and hyaluronic acid are the key moisturizers in this product. Coconut oil is known for its fantastic moisturizing abilities and hyaluronic acid hydrates, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, and increases the elasticity.  Then we added a touch of daisy flower extract and dong quai to reduce redness and balance skin tone. This is the perfect recipe for balanced, moisturized skin overnight.
