Skincare Tips During Menopause: "" Presents 7 Ways to Manage Oily Skin

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 17, 2011) - Menopause can leave the skin feeling imbalanced and upset, and for some women, this means the onset of oily skin.'s latest article, "Oily Skin During Menopause: 7 Ways to Manage Symptoms," provides simple skincare tips to help women achieve a clear, balanced complexion during menopause.

When hormones fluctuate, women who once had dry skin might find themselves with oily skin that never feels quite clean. This can mean breakouts, too. Finding a cleanser that combats excess oil and shine should be the first step in balancing the complexion, but how can women find oil-controlling cleansers that are appropriate for aging skin?

After cleansing, most women have probably gotten used to applying day cream or night cream to moisturize the skin. Many people skip this step when faced with oily skin, because the skin already seems to have enough moisture on its own, although one of the most important steps in a comprehensive menopausal skincare routine is to moisturize the skin. Won't most moisturizers just clog the pores and leave the skin oilier than before?

In the teen years, many women reached for powder to cover shiny areas of their faces. But on mature skin, powder can settle into fine lines and make wrinkles look more pronounced. If women must forgo the powder, how can they control excess shine that builds up throughout the day?

Find answers to all these questions and much more on skincare during menopause, including how to make homemade scrubs and spa products, at consistently covers all skincare and beauty topics from head to toe. Check out these latest articles:
