Before menopause, I was seen to be younger than my years, but about 3 years after menopause things started to take a drastic turn for the worse and I developed all these lines mainly on my face. When these little lines first appeared I turned to an array of facial products and facial exercises in order to save my face. Now the lines have become deep and nothing is helping, and I find it hard to look in the mirror and believe what I'm seeing. While I was exposed to some sun in the past, I don't believe I was out there as much as many and they don't look as bad as I do. I am underweight, so my natural estrogen supply has probably closed down all together. I'm not a senior yet but get all these discounts without asking. Can anyone suggest anything, or just tell me that I'm not alone and that there's some one out there with a face as old as mine has become. that may help. Thanx.
Thank you Annie, at one point in my peri pause I was taking low dose estrogen and progesterone and my cholesterol and tyglycerides shot way up so the doctor immediately took me off. However if I may say, while I was on it, it did make my face look more youthful and the lines softened and I was really pleased what it did for my face?
I noticed on the other post that they talk mostly about loose skin on the arms, what about loose skin or lines on the face?
Sweetheart, better low cholesterol than softer lines in the face. :) At least lines in the face can't make you die of a heart attack.
I'd go in for a good makeover -- colors, moisturizing makeup, and all. And especially, the thing that instantly makes most women look younger is to get rid of the hairstyle one has been wearing for the last twenty years and put oneself into the hands of a more modern stylist. Ditto fresh colors and silhouettes in the wardrobe.
It's truly not the wrinkles that make cashiers give the senior discount, it's the signals, and the biggest signal of all is the style of hair. Follow that with wardrobe and the bounce in one's step. Only after that, does anyone focus on wrinkles.
I think I'm pretty up to date with my hairstyle but I've been thinking lately I want a style with more body. Hands are another dead give away of age and mine are thin skinned with blue bulging veins. My face and hands both show my age and then some, my face is gaunt, and the lines on my face are getting deeper. Moisturizers aren't helping much.
Yes, I agree, better low cholesterol then worrying about my face, This aging thing sneaked up on me so I am still trying to get use to it, with little success.
