What is Perimenopause and Menopause?
Perimenopause is the transitional period leading up to menopause, where the female body begins to make less estrogen and a series of changes begin to happen in our physiology. It can start in a woman's 40s (or even earlier) and lasts until menopause, the point when the ovaries stop releasing eggs. Menopause is diagnosed after 12 consecutive months without a menstrual period and marks the end of menstrual cycles. It's a natural biological process that has physical symptoms like hot flashes and emotional symptoms due to hormonal changes. During this time, the decrease in estrogen levels can affect health, mood, and often leads to changes in the skin's appearance and texture.
Signs and Symptoms: Recognizing Perimenopausal Skin
As our bodies experience changes in nutrient absorption, hormone production, and other systemic physiological changes, so does our skin! As we go through these changes, our skin will needs more care and attention to nutrition than ever before.
Dullness, grayness, and dryness often signal the changes experienced by skin during perimenopause. Redness and sensitivity can also be signs. Recognizing these signs allows for targeted care. Here at Beaute Nouveau, we are committed to supporting skin in every cycle of life and our formulations provide the rich nutrition and extra care that skin needs during perimenopause and menopause.

Hyaluronic Acid: Quench Your Skin's Thirst
Beaute Nouveau's Hyaluronic Elixir is like a big drink of water for your skin, perfect for the changes that come with perimenopause and menopause. It's super simple: just 1% Hyaluronic Acid, which is a magic ingredient that holds onto water like a sponge, and 99% water. This combo plumps up your skin, making it look fresh and full of life.
Hyaluronic Acid is great at pulling in water to keep your skin hydrated. But to get the most out of it, you should start with a spritz of Facial Mist before you put on the Elixir, and then lock all that moisture in with Creme Nouveau right after. This way, you make sure your skin stays hydrated and doesn't lose any precious water.
Our bodies already love Hyaluronic Acid because it's naturally found in our skin and eyes, keeping them moist and healthy. Beaute Nouveau's Elixir is all about giving your skin that natural boost, helping it to stay flexible and soft through all the stages of life.
The Revelation of Gentle Daily Exfoliation
Unveiling another well-kept secret, gentle daily exfoliation is pivotal for maintaining vibrant skin through perimenopause and menopause. Beaute Nouveau advocates ditching the abrasive exfoliators for more harmonious and tender natural fibers like Cotton and Konjac. Natural fibers lead the charge as the kindest method to daily renew your skin's surface.
Our Yuzu Oil Cleaner used nightly on Cotton Pads work together to dissolve makeup, dislodge environmental particles, and lift away dead skin cells to soften and smooth skin with minimal sensitivity. We also advocate exfoliating after moisturizing to saturate dead skin cells and allow them to lift off gently with the least amount of aggravation. The daily ritual of applying Crème Nouveau followed by gently wiping the skin with a cotton pad offers both nourishment, and a delicate polish.
We also suggest adding extra exfoliation during cleansing. Use our Konjac Sponge paired with any facial cleanser for a mild but effective exfoliation. These sponges respect your skin's pH balance and ensuring even the most sensitive complexions can benefit from daily exfoliation and the glow of health. These are so gentle they can be used on the eye area as well.
By integrating these gentle exfoliation methods, Beaute Nouveau empowers you to unveil a fresh, radiant complexion every day, ensuring that your skin care ritual is as nurturing as it is effective.
