Women who find that their skin gets particularly dry in the wintertime may want to ask themselves if it has anything to do with the fact that they're in or nearing menopause. A recent article on winterizing your skin says that women produce less skin oil as they age and their skin can get particularly dry as a symptom of menopause.
There are many different things that women can do to care for their skin during the winter and throughout the rest of the year. Making sure to drink enough water is at the top of the list. Moisturizing the skin with appropriate creams and lotions is also important. And keeping skin from being exposed to the winter elements is important during this season.
As women age, they will find that there are a number of different symptoms of menopause that they didn't realize were going to face them. However, these symptoms don't have to be troubling. That's especially true of symptoms like dry skin which are fairly easy to remedy.
Anyone with additional concerns about their dry skin and its relation to menopause should speak to a wellness care provider about the issue.
