7. Combat Your Dipping Estrogen Levels
When you go through menopause your estrogen levels take a nosedive, and the new hormone imbalance affects your skin in a big way. That's why sometimes you feel like your complexion has changed seemingly overnight. 

"Reduction of estrogen levels during menopause reduces the formation of collagen and elastin. With this reduction, the normal losses of collagen and elastin aren't compensated for and a woman gets a net loss of these important components of youthful skin," Dr. Shah explains.

To help your skin through this transition period, choose a cream with lipids that will foster natural self-repair.
