WHY LED LIGHT THERAPY IS GOOD FOR PERIMENOPAUSE AND MENOPAUSAL SKIN
Understanding our bodies, hormones and the changes that occur on either side of the menopause is a challenge for all mid-life women. It is a chapter in our lives that is full of complexities, of which no small part is the effect hormones play on our skin. Yes, we’re big on breath-work and yoga. We’re also big on sleep (as well as HRT), however, the decreased production of oestrogen and progesterone has a profound effect on our skin’s physiology. Reduced oestrogen levels increase the chances of fine lines, sagging skin and loss of elasticity.
LIGHT THERAPY FOR SKIN HEALTH
To keep our skin in peak condition, LED Red (633nm) and Near-Infrared (830nm) light therapy works to regenerate collagen and elastin. With regular use, our skin looks a bit clearer, a bit fresher and our mood a bit lighter. It’s all about ageing better. LED light therapy makes a big difference on our skin, especially as hormone levels dip.
THE SCIENCE - WHY LED THERAPY CAN HELP
If you’re wondering why the OLIVIEREWILSON GLOW Mask is so good for menopausal skin, keep reading, it delivers on many fronts. The technology and science of the mask, which uses Red and Near-infrared light, has benefits for many symptoms – not only for keeping skin in check (the technology works to brighten skin, while improving elasticity and hydration) but for migraine conditions and balancing hormones too. It has an amazing calming effect on the brain, easing tension, which can be helpful for anyone who has trouble getting back to sleep in the middle of the night.
“There’s so much talk about peri-menopause and the menopause now it’s fantastic,” says founder of OLIVIEREWILSON, Catherine Wilson. “I’m all for raising awareness around the symptoms and physical issues women face before and during the menopause that include dry and flaky skin, loss of collagen and elastin, adult acne and pigmentation. LED products with the correct wavelength can treat these skincare concerns. The Red light also helps to boost your mood and feel-good hormones, alongside reducing inflammation, improving circulation, and increasing collagen production for healthy skin and a glowing complexion.”
