Hair, Skin & Hormones: How to Manage Going Through “The Change” (We are talking about Menopause, y'all!)

It’s no secret that hormones play a significant role in regulating various processes in the body. Metabolism, emotions, and all of organ systems are directly impacted by hormonal changes throughout our lives. “The change” (dare I say it...menopause) is more than just hot flashes and mood swings. It can also significantly change the overall health and appearance of our hair and skin. Whether natural, chemical, or surgical, menopause (yes - the big “M”) can lead to hair loss, sensitive skin, and scalp irritations. The significant decrease in estrogen and progesterone affects the growth cycle of hair follicles, skin elasticity, and moisture levels. An increase in hormones like androgens stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce excess oil, leading to clogged pores and the development of acne or dandruff.

Hair, Skin & Hormones: How to Manage Going Through “The Change” (We are talking about Menopause, y'all!)

CONSULT A PROFESSIONAL: If you notice significant hair loss or changes to your skin, consult a medical or haircare professional to determine underlying issues and potential treatment options.


MANAGE YOUR MENOPAUSAL HAIR: A healthy diet and scalp massages are holistic approaches to hormonal hair and scalp changes. Only a doctor can prescribe hormone replacement therapy and medication to treat and prevent hair loss. ESTABLISH A CONSISTENT FACIAL CARE ROUTINE: Cleanse your skin twice a day with a gentle cleanser based on your “new” facial skin type. Follow up with oil-free moisturizers and avoid harsh scrubs that can irritate the skin. 
PROTECT YOUR SKIN: Opt for non-abrasive cleansers that won’t strip away natural oils and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Regardless of your skin type, sunscreen is a MUST for both dry and oily skin.
  • Avoid the ash by using the Organic Bath Co. Body Discovery Set. It contains four unique body butters to nourish and protect dry skin. (Choose the scent that works for your mood!)
Managing hormone-related changes in hair and skin requires a holistic approach that includes lifestyle modifications, adjusted self-care routines, and, in some cases, medical intervention. Menopausal changes manifest differently for everyone, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
