50 is the new 40 – The Bare Beauty Guide

Facing the Big Challenge

Welcome to your 50s! This era brings its own unique set of beauty challenges, primarily driven by menopause. Menopause is like an uninvited guest that makes a grand, undeniable entrance, leaving traces of its presence on your skin, body, and even your mind. Often manifesting itself in drier, thinner skin, a softening jawline, and the emergence of sagging cheeks – menopause tends to leave its mark.

Here is the Bare Beauty guide to help you through managing these changes gracefully and effectively.

Unlocking the Hormonal Harmony

A vital key to navigating these changes lies in hormonal balance. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) has shown to be a beacon of relief against the tidal waves caused by oestrogen deficiency. By reintroducing essential hormones such as oestrogen, progesterone, and even a dash of testosterone, the unpleasant symptoms like brain fog, joint aches, and hot flushes can be kept at bay. Not to mention a possible skin revival, marked by enhanced collagen production and moisture retention, making the face appear firmer and smoother. It’s like pressing the refresh button, allowing your skin and body to reclaim its vibrancy and health.

Supporting Your Pelvic Floor

Bladder function may be affected in your 50’s, leading to discomfort and inconvenience. A women’s body is expected to cope with so much from childbirth through to menopause and if the bladder is compromised during childbirth and not addressed when Menopause hits everything is magnified. Innovations like @Emsella and @Plevipower Biofeedback stand as pillars of strength in managing these changes. Emsella, a non-invasive treatment, works wonders by using electromagnetic energy to stimulate and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, improving urinary control. Plevipower Biofeedback offers a unique training method to enhance pelvic floor muscle strength, aiding in better bladder management. The combination of an Emsella course and learning how to do a proper Kegel with the aid of Plevipower Biofeedback is a winning combination

Tailoring Your Treatment

Choosing a treatment plan that resonates with your unique concerns is paramount. Finding a therapist who you can openly discuss your needs with is the first step towards curating a personalized skincare and treatment plan. This approach allows you to focus on specific issues and address them effectively rather than being overwhelmed by the overarching term ‘menopause’.

 Cultivating a Skincare Sanctuary

 A solid skincare routine can be your best friend during this transition. Equip your beauty arsenal with potent Vitamin C serums, hydrating moisturizers, and essential sunscreens for the day. Night-time calls for the powerful action of retinoids and peptide serums to pamper your skin while you rest. Products don’t necessarily have to be labelled ‘for menopause’. It’s more about addressing specific needs like dryness with hydrating serums and ceramide-rich moisturizers.

Navigating the ‘Menopause Face’ Maze

When it comes to tweakments, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s a journey of exploring what works best for your skin at this moment, from hyaluronic-acid based treatments for dry skin, collagen-boosters for firmness, to lasers for tackling pigmentation.

Crafting the Best Version of Your 50+ Self

Here’s a peek into some treatments that can be part of your beauty exploration:

For Dry Skin: Consider hyaluronic acid-based treatments such as Profhilo or Sunekos Skin boosters to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin.

For Slack Skin and Sagging Faces: Treatments such as microneedling, radiofrequency microneedling, and collagen-boosters can be your allies in achieving firmer and tighter skin.

For Jowls and Double Chins: Explore options like fat-dissolving injections for more defined facial contours.

For Pigmentation: Lasers or intense pulsed light treatments can help in achieving a smoother, more even-toned complexion. The amazing @NeoGen Plasma facial will soon be making an appearance @ Bare Beauty, and this targets skin resurfacing, skin tightening, skin regeneration, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, pigmentation and sun damage.

For Frown Lines: Botox and other wrinkle-relaxing injections can be game-changers in softening the appearance of lines. If you go down this route it’s imperative, you do your research and find the right qualified therapist. Don’t go for the cheapest option go for the quality.

For a Hollow Face: Fillers, when used subtly and expertly, can help in enhancing the natural contours of your face, giving it a more youthful appearance. Ditto the above for finding the right therapist.

Remember, the 50s are all about embracing change with grace and exploring treatments that resonate with your unique beauty needs. At Bare Beauty, we believe in supporting your journey to be the most radiant version of yourself, offering guidance tailored just for you! 🌿✨
