Mature Skin Care for Menopause
Age of Menopause
If you are a woman in the age of menopause who prefers a more natural choice to your ‘anti aging’ skin care program, you will find selections to trust here on ESSA Natural.
Women in the age of menopause are as diverse in the acceptance of aging as acceptance of their bodies.
Anti Aging Beauty Products
We also have different perceptions of the results expected from mature skin care products. Which are you? You envision anti wrinkle results with sublime skin texture? Or shrug when facing the next wrinkle?
Wherever we are in acceptance, the sisterhood of women in the age of menopause accept one another. Whether others are in an anti aging war against liver spots. Or accept their collection of grey hair at fifty.
Ah, Yes, Menopause and Thinning Hair
We do not appreciate female pattern baldness either. We have no tolerance for lifeless hair, damaged, color-treated hair, dry hair, frizzy hair or hair that will not grow past the collar when we want it to grow. Or hair on the face or bosom. We ask a lot of our hair.
Wisdom Lies in the Quality of Choice. Natural or Not – We Want the Best
We are awareness that greater wisdom comes with each silver strand. So let the silver be radiant and healthy. We also know menopause can be to hair what sandpapering is to nails, so let them be strong. We know under eye circles and thinning just makes us look tired and we prefer vivacious. We know that whether we ‘decide’ to allow wrinkles or avoid them to the point of surgery and injections, we want luminous skin. We want effective products.
Mature Skin Care
If we are going to use more than olive oil and Vitamin E cream for mature skin care, we have one final choice before choosing a brand. . . .
- Abrasive innovations and questionable ingredients in our products.
- Natural mature skin care with safety-conscious ingredients that softens the age of menopause.
Natural Anti Aging Products
As women of the ‘anti aging’ era, we also support non-cruelty products, green manufacturing and natural ingredients. If not aware of the European Union guidelines, then know now that the protective arm of the European Union movement now being used as guidance for allowable ingredients in personal care has swept worldwide. Though a beginning, people and companies are becoming more aware. The European Union (EU) guidelines include bath and body, skin care and lotions. And cosmetics.
Antiaging Cosmetic Protection
For those of us who prefer cosmetics, we are in an era of skin-nourishing, cosmetic protection. This hits us like an aftershock since we are ending an era when cosmetic companies included mercury in eyelash mascara, bismuth in mineral foundation, propylene glycol in our liquid foundation. Oh, wait, those ingredients are still in most store brands and through Internet shopping. Except. . . well, we will get to that.
The fact remains that we are aware. We want safer choices than our mothers faced unaware. And we want those choices to be not only safety-conscious formulas, but exquisite quality.
The Age of Menopause: Natural Progesterone Cream and Dietary Supplements
Anti aging beauty products are not only about cosmetics, anti wrinkle serums, mature skin moisturizers or age spot lotions. Estrogen and progesterone… even dietary supplements have a profound effect on beauty. Our sleep patterns or lack thereof. Hot flashes and discomfort. Anxiety and emotional stamina. Thyroid function, cardiovascular support, osteo strength and joint health are vital beauty components.
ESSA Natural: A Focused Website for ‘Lavender Pearls’
Lavender pearls are natural in color, never bleached. Their unique, very round shape is valued more than the elongated shapes. Lavender pearls. Perhaps this sounds matronly, but the fact is when you want elegance, natural beauty, drama, then lavender pearls are quite the fitting choice.
ESSA Natural supports women in whatever extreme they want to use to soften their age of menopause. Acceptance is a key here. But this is also a place to find premium yet affordable natural anti aging beauty products that will enhance your skin care program and support your physical balance.

More thoughts including a little about me and ……
Gifts of Menopause
Wrinkles and age spots are like battle scars, some have them and some don’t. The wrinkle factor can be cultural, genetic, environmental or self-induced. Or results of questionable product ingredients. In my world, where I grew as a woman by learning to accept my plushness as a form of beauty, I can appreciate the creases of my face because I understand the diversity of beauty. I can accept where you are in your personal acceptance too.
What we do about wrinkles, age spots and fading of our skin is as diverse as what we choose to do about our body’s plushness or padding. Some struggle, some fight, some go to war, some shrug, some nod, and some revel – meaning those women who don red hats, or the occasional mature woman who threatens to dance naked in the garden.
We want our skin to radiate, no matter our age. Imagine living to ninety-seven with sweet luminous wrinkles. And why not?! Vintage autos that make it past forty are admired by all. Though I know this is debatable because the wrinkles and rust are ground out of classic vehicles.
Side note: My grandmother had the sweetest wrinkles. Of course, she had never worn perfume, lip color or rouge either. Everyone else I know likes cosmetics, at least enough to purchase them for special occasions.
Consider what you want. What do we desire for our skin care?
Again, this is cultural, familial, economically controlled, and varies on acceptance level. Some of us use olive oil or vitamin E lotion for skin care. Some prefer fine products, and some even consider cosmetic surgery and injection treatments an essential skincare regimen.
There are beauty products for lightening, brightening, thinning, circles, lines, and skin enhancement. Retention, imperfections, wrinkle guard and wrinkle remover. Dry skin, problem skin, sun-abused skin, and chemically-mistreated skin.
My beauty goals: I don’t want to itch or twitch. Yes, I once used a major brand eye cream that made me twitch after a few weeks. Stopped using it, stopped the eye twitch. Met a kitchen designer, same twitch, same product.
Me: I want refined pores and clear skin. My mother had huge pores, clogged and problematic.
Me: I want to glow. You know, that skin happy glow.
My greatest problem: I always experienced high sensitivity to cosmetics and skincare products. Cosmetic foundation caused terrible boil-like breakouts. Hair care products resulted in bumps on my scalp. Everything felt harsh. My eyes would burn the entire day if I used the wrong product for me.
I am fifty-three-ish now. A decade ago, I found skincare products which were never made with questionable ingredients. Nothing harsh, abrasive, drying, toxic. If one is only concerned with results, if one does not even care about the natural, safety conscious ingredients…. then know that these are premium, highly concentrated skincare and cosmetics. I think my favorite products are exquisite, as do women the world over. They make me glow without going to war on my complexion. And these are not my mother’s cosmetics or lotions.
My memories of beauty care products.
I remember pink lipstick samples making my eyes and complexion glow. Oh, I was so lovely at ten. My mother’s medicated skincream clogging my teenage pores. Until she caught me. The one blue glass jar of medicated beauty cream was a luxury, like my mother’s Chanel perfume. Do not touch. I remember the first grey hair I plucked at thirty-five. A loving, teasing comment from hubby that induced three decades of hair colouring. Including the semi-permanent magenta-plum which was placed in the wrong box by a prankster.
I remember the wrinkle between my eyes at thirty-seven. Thinking it was all downhill, when in fact the hill was heading up. The first bikini I wore in public at age forty anyway. The silver enhancement glistening through my dark hair now. The glow of my skin and finely-pored texture. I appreciate the youngish look of my round face. That I have understood how everything in life is simpler when based on self acceptance and positive perspective.
I remember not being able to remember. Not wanting to remember. PMSing both pre-peri and during peri-menopause. A week a month. My horrified response was turning to ask, “What was that?” Hot flashes starting at forty-one. Waking in the night soaked and anxious. Depression from thyroid malfunction. Heart spells from exhaustion. Fading eyesight that was too sudden. Finding natural progesterone cream. Relief. Adding other products that stabilized my emotional, physical and even spiritual balance.
