Dry and itchy skin are common problems encountered with the menopause. When oestrogen levels drop, the skin is less able to retain moisture. This is because the skin’s natural hydrating mechanism weakens, as the levels of ceramides, hyaluronic acid and sebum decline. A moisturiser can help alleviate dryness and itching. Regular use of a moisturiser may also protect the skin barrier and reduce irritation.
This product is lightweight and non greasy, so all skin types can use it as an everyday moisturiser. It can be used on the face and body.
Cerave Moisturising Lotion hydrates the skin for several hours because of a unique slow-release technology. This product contains ceramides and hyaluronic acid, which may be reduced in the skin with the perimenopause and menopause.
It is non comedogenic, so it shouldn’t clog pores or aggravate acne.
