If you’re not already going through it, it’s something that’ll probably be coming soon down the line.

Menopause sees hormones fluctuate in the the body, which impacts your sleep, skin, hair, mood and mouth. It can be uncomfortable and brings many changes.

Skin can become more prone to breakouts, redness and sensitivity, and the drop in oestrogen levels, – the hormone used to retain moisture – can lead to dry patches and lower levels of elasticity.

This decline in oestrogen can also lead to dry mouth, which according to Dr Vanessa Craven of Spotlight Oralcare, can increase your susceptibility to decay and cavities so staying on top of oral health is more important than ever.
