What Causes Itchy Skin During Menopause?

What Causes Itchy Skin During MenopauseHot flashes, night sweats and irregular periods are all well-known parts of the menopause experience. However, many women often experience another common but less well-known symptom: itchy skin. If you find yourself scratching, itching and feeling uncomfortable in your skin, menopause may be to blame.

During menopause, your estrogen levels begin to decline. Estrogen performs numerous functions in your body. It helps keep your bones strong, regulates your menstrual cycle and stimulates collagen production for soft, smooth skin. As menopause approaches, your skin may become dry and depleted of its natural oils, which can result in irritated, itchy skin. To make matters worse, your skin may also be struggling to keep moisture in, so even when you apply moisturizers and creams, you may still have the problem.

You can take steps to stop the itch. Taking lukewarm rather than hot showers can help your skin retain precious moisture. Use a gentle, fragrance- and dye-free cleanser, and after bathing, slather on a thick moisturizing cream to lock moisture in while your skin is still damp. You may also need to evaluate your diet and eat more essential fatty acids, which are found in eggs, walnuts and salmon. Finally, protect your skin using a high SPF sunblock on all exposed skin. An antihistamine lotion may be necessary to stop the itch for some women.

Natural supplements such as DON’T PAUSE are designed to handle the problem at its source. It uses natural ingredients to replenish your body’s natural supplies of estrogen. This can help alleviate or eliminate common menopause symptoms that are associated with declining hormone levels. DON’T PAUSE can not only help your skin stay soft, smooth and comfortable during menopause but can also combat other menopause symptoms, including those pesky hot flashes, frustrating night sweats and inconveniently irregular periods.
