What does ESTROGEN do FOR AGING and YOUR SKIN?!
Many women report a sudden onset of skin aging several months after menopausal symptoms begin.
Menopause causes hypoestrogenism, accelerating age-related deterioration, which results in thinner skin, an increase in number and depth of wrinkles, increased skin dryness, and decreased skin firmness and elasticity. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been shown to increase epidermal hydration, skin elasticity, skin thickness, and also reduces skin wrinkles.
A number of studies have shown that estrogens have many important beneficial and protective roles in skin physiology.
They have been shown to accelerate wound healing while a significant number of women notice an improvement in inflammatory skin disorders such as psoriasis. Estrogens also offer protection against skin photoaging and epidemiological studies indicate that the mortality rates from both non-melanoma skin cancers and melanoma are significantly lower in women.
Many of the effects of estrogen on human skin are based on the changes that are seen in post-menopausal women, with a number of studies documenting the differences seen following menopause, although there is also a variation in skin thickness during our menstrual cycle, with skin thickness lowest at the start of the menstrual cycle, when estrogen and progesterone levels are low, which then increases with the rising levels of estrogen.
