Dry Skin: Hormonal imbalances may bring about dryness of skin. Menopause, which causes changes in the hormonal balance of the female body, can have significant changes in the appearance of the skin. One of the first visible signs among women when they enter menopause is increasing dryness.
When I started menopause, I was amazed at how my skin seemed tired and old all of a sudden. I was not looking forward to the hot flashes and all that comes with menopause, but I was not at all prepared for the changes in my skin. And the worst part is that it seems as if though there is nothing I can do to win this race against time! —Diana W., Dallas, TX
