Menopause

Our experts deep dive into the world of menopause to help remedy signs of hormone decline

Shop Wellness

A long under-represented concern in beauty, the mystery of menopause and its notoriously “hard-to-treat” symptoms should not be mistaken for a lack of attention. Known in China as the ‘Second Spring’, this spell of hormone decline may come with its challenges, but these gems of expertise from our beauty and wellness professionals will help set you a smooth road to pastures new…

“Menopause is characterised by oestrogen decline, a really important hormone in women's health. Less oestrogen circulation means that the body blocks the production of certain hormones being delivered to key parts of the body resulting in a decline in sleep, dry and dull skin, low mood and emotional imbalances.”
Winder Ton, Head Nutritionist - anatomē

Hot Flushes

Lower hormone levels send the body’s temperature controls out of whack, meaning unexpected and unwelcome heat surges can become frequent. While prevention proves a challenge, forming a relief ritual and seeking out the right ingredients will help you relinquish control.

“Soya isoflavones and primrose oil can help regulate body temprature – two key ingredients in our Women's Menosupport + Renewal supplements.”
Winder Ton, Head Nutritionist - anatomē

“Hot, sensitive skin needs cooling, lightweight skin care that won’t irritate and cause further flushing. A hydrating serum is a god-send for skin that feels like it’s on fire.”
Arabella Preston, Co-founder - Votary

“Look for ingredients which reduce flash redness, like cold pressed meadowfoam seed oil, a highly antioxidant skin anti-inflammatory, and calming wild rose – both in The Midnight Miracle.”

Mood

As the body adjusts to oestrogen and progesterone decline, mood and energy levels can fluctuate. Recognising this link opens up space for prevention – and equilibrium can be gained by working the right supplements into your routine.

“Constant mood swings, anxiousness and a restless mind can be balanced by the intake of certain adaptogens including ashwagandha, rhodiola rosea and ginseng. Adaptogens help to regulate stress and promote balance and calm within the body.“
Winder Ton, Head Nutritionist - anatomē

“The essential vitamins in MOOD, including B vitamins and 100% RDA of vitamin D, aid the metabolism of serotonin, dopamine and melatonin to help stabilise your mood.“
Jules Miller, Founder – The Nue Co.

Sleep

Most common in the perimenopausal stage, disruptions in the natural sleep-wake cycle care only exacerbated by other menopause symptoms. Help alleviate insomnia, sleep apnea and low quality rest with a pre-bed ritual that aids the body’s circadian rhythm.

“On average, 6 in 10 women experience disturbed sleep, so it's important to establish a mindful bedtime routine. A calming breathing practice will soothe the nervous system, and applying topical essential oils to key sensory points will bring a sense of inner peace to the mind prior to sleep.”
Winder Ton, Head Nutritionist - anatomē

“In combination with the hormonal changes you are experiencing, poor sleep can rapidly accelerate the ageing process as your skin doesn’t get the opportunity to go into ‘rest and repair’ mode.”
Arabella Preston, Co-founder - Votary

SLEEP DROPS help you fall asleep and stay asleep without drowsiness the next morning. Valerian root and passionflower induce a sense of tranquillity, while catnip and chamomile work together to aid sleep.”
Jules Miller, Founder – The Nue Co.

Skin

The close link between hormones and skin means the complexion is prone to changes. In this case, it’s time to tweak your repertoire – think hero products tailored towards dullness, dryness, breakouts or lipid loss, and a skin-loving superfood diet.

“Dry and dull skin are also very common during menopause. Eating plenty of omega-rich foods like avocado, oily fish and whole nuts will support skin health.”
Winder Ton, Head Nutritionist - anatomē

“Loss of collagen is rapid in the first two years after menopause, and your skin will suffer significant lipid loss too. This results in dry, fragile skin that is more prone to sensitivity and redness.”
Arabella Preston, Co-founder - Votary

“Make sure the skin care products you use are rich and deeply moisturizing, and invest in a cleansing balm – it will really help to nourish and rejuvenate your skin.”
Winder Ton, Head Nutritionist - anatomē

“Use regenerating products containing essential fatty acids for lines, stimulating collagen and firming skin. They are all skin-beautifying nutrient goldmines, and some of them are structurally very similar to the sebum our skin produces – an ideal skin food.”
