A woman’s skin goes through major changes after menopause when estrogen levels dip. The structure of the skin changes completely and although the top layer becomes thinner, the epidermis becomes more impenetrable. It’s essential to use the right skin products if you want to slow down the signs of aging and minimize any skin damage you already have.
If you think that anti-aging skincare products cost a fortune, you will be pleasantly surprised to discover that many products selling for under $25 on Amazon contain ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and retinol which are recommended by top dermatologists.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and it attracts and retains water to keep the skin hydrated. It promotes healthier, more supple skin. Retinol exfoliates the skin and increases collagen production. It is a powerful anti-aging tool and can make your skin look younger, brighter and more radiant.
