FAQs

Q: Since starting menopause, my skin has been much more sensitive and often appears red. Layering my face with thick foundation doesn’t help conceal the inflammation. Any tips?

A: To even out redness, apply a green-tinted corrective lotion in the morning. Avene Professional Diroseal Anti-Redness Skincare Lotion is ideal for calming redness in sensitive skin types.

Q: I have really sensitive skin, but would like to make a simple exfoliating mask that won’t trigger a reaction. Any tips?

A: According to Dr. Ellen Marmur, professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center, you can make a simple skin-brightening mask by blending equal parts avocado and yogurt with a bit of honey. How will it improve skin? The avocado layers skin with healthy fats to lock in hydration while the yogurt boasts lactic acid to mildly exfoliate. Lastly, the touch of honey will target and eliminate blemish-causing bacteria.

Q: My eleven-year-old daughter recently developed her first few pimples on her chin. Should we start a treatment right away or wait to see if the condition worsens?

A: Even your daughter’s acne is mild, it’s a good idea to treat the problem as soon as possible. Make sure that your daughter washes her face daily with a mild cleanser that contains benzoyl peroxide. If the condition worsens, consider seeing a dermatologist.

Q: How do I know if it’s really acne I’m dealing with during menopause and not some other skin condition?

A: If your acne treatment products aren’t working or seem to make your skin worse, you could definitely be dealing with a skin condition that isn’t actually acne at all. Rosacea is very similar to acne and the two are often confused. Symptoms like redness, flushed skin, tiny red bumps and overall irritated skin might mean rosacea, so see a doctor to be sure.
