Many of us have made it through menopause and survived (not necessarily unscathed)!
Women's bodies sure do go through a lot of changes, when we hit certain ages. It is NOT FUN!
All kinds of things change.
In my experience - I NOW have a few more random aches and pains for what appears to be NO reason. Today I may be fine and tomorrow my hand may hurt - no rhyme or reason! My hair grays faster (that may be age) - but it also grows much faster! It also grows in places I don't want it!!! Then again it has stopped growing at all in other places. My skin seems to be thinner, but I try to keep it nourished.
So many changes.
In the past year or year and a half my face has started getting blemishes - just like my teen years! I never had what I would call acne - but I did get blemishes from time to time.
I have tried everything. I have used aloe soap, black coal tar soap, Neutrogena soap - Aloe Vera gel, Witch Hazel - getting sun - not getting sun - you name it. I even changed make-up brands and types - not that I wear it much. I cut things out of my diet.
I finally found what completely takes care of the problem (totally by accident). I have to use it daily, but it does keep my face clear!
This stuff works like magic. It only takes a little bit - but it sure does help. I would never have thought that lotion would be a cure for blemishes.
So yes, here I am in my mid 60's and I feel like I am going through puberty again!!!! It has been crazy. Our body chemistry changes over the years and I guess maybe the PH of our skin changes as well.
I am lucky, that a very simple thing is a fix for me.
I just wanted to share in case someone is having this problem or any other skin condition due to menopause or post menopause.
Don't give up. Sometimes we happen upon a simple fix - and can thankfully avoid tests or doctors (and hormones in my case).
Do you have any remedies for menopause problems?
I am sure we would all appreciate any hints we can get!
