Estrogen & You
Estrogen is a hormone produced mainly in the ovaries and plays a part in pregnancy and menopause. But did you know that estrogen plays a role in skincare as well? While many of us recognize the effects of aging on the skin, we don't necessarily associate it with estrogen deficiency. Estrogen contributes to the skin in multiple ways, such as healing wounds, responding to sun damage, skin hydration, and skin thickness. As we age, the body's ability to produce estrogen lessens, and we begin to see dry skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.
