·3-min read

When it comes to the best of high street beauty, we know and love No7 skincare for providing results-driven formulas at reasonable price points. If you joined the waitlist of 37,000 people for its Line Correcting Booster Serum or remember the queue for Protect and Perfect Serum, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.

This week, No7 launched its new menopause skincare collection. The four-product range, which was created with more than 7,000 menopausal women on board, is formulated with ingredients designed to tackle the skincare concerns most associated with perimenopause and menopause and comes about as a part of the brand’s 20-year partnership with the University of Manchester.

How does menopause effect your skin?

It is no secret (to anyone who has experienced it, at least) that the years leading up to the menopause bring a rollercoaster of changes for your body and mind, but did you know that fluctuating hormone levels can also impact your skin?

As the oestrogen in your body begins to deplete, so can the collagen that keeps skin elastic and bouncy. And that's not all: as oestrogen drops, so too does production of the lipids and ceramides which help to keep moisture in place, and to protect the skin from external aggressors. As oestrogen has a naturally anti-inflammatory effect, skin also becomes less able to cope with any external aggressors which do make it past the protective barrier. As a result, skin feels stiffer, thinner and is more easily compromised, becoming extra sensitive and taking more time to repair and balance itself.

It is no surprise, then, that dryness, dullness, irritation and redness are among the most common symptoms reported by women during this time - and the effects that No7’s menopause skincare targets most keenly. From a Nourishing Overnight Cream that repairs and rehydrates as you sleep to an Instant Cooling Mist to help your skin through hot flashes, No7’s new range is formulated with revitalising extracts selected with menopause skin concerns in mind.

No7 Menopause Instant Radiance Serum
