We’ve (all) been there? Your finely-tuned skincare routine has suddenly plateau’d. Now you look like you’re just slapping on any old cheap moisturiser, the products don’t get along any more (argh!) so what’s the answer?
Hormones (!) Pregnancy (and with it, increased HGC and progesterone), skin tags, itchy rashes, breakouts, new pigmentation, menopause, adult-onset acne…the list is pretty endless and sometimes hormones feel like those invisible dictators that just wreck our emotions, health and skin from within – when they’re out of balance. What to do? Because skincare products don’t adapt to skin changes, you’ll need to adapt your routine and switch out products.
How long has this been going on?
