YOUR INNER BODY IS AS IMPORTANT AS YOUR OUTER BODY
Menopause, Hormone Therapy & Aging Skin
Growing up in the sixties, I got married very young and had my children quite soon after marriage. My body was supple and strong, naturally. As I aged my skin needed more attention. I would moisturize my outer body every day, to keep it fresh and hydrated. I worked out regularly, took dance classes and felt in really good shape.
My inner body was another issue. I went into menopause at 43. Very soon thereafter I noticed that my inner body started to dry up, I was mortified. Dr. Greene said to me “Honey, women are like prunes, as the fruit ages it dries up, just like us”. So out of desperation I went on hormone replacement therapy.
After 10 years of HRT, I chose to go off. Not only did that affect my inner body, it also made my outer body that much drier. I suddenly had two problems.
