IS MENOPAUSE MAKING MY SKIN DRY? YOU ASK AND WE LISTEN

I love Vaginal Renewal Complex and find it to be so soothing. Sometimes I use it on my face and neck.  Could you create a product specifically for the face?”

….and we did!  For the last 6 months, we have been working on an amazing new addition to Grohen Technologies line of products. INTENSIVE FACIAL REVITALIZER COMPLEX was created specially to be used to help restore a healthier looking face and minimize the fine lines and wrinkles.

I have been using IFRC for about three months and I must say my skin looks great!!  Some of my friends even noticed the difference.  I have always taken very good care of my skin.  I use pure oil when moisturizing by body, and after seeing the incredible results of Intensive Facial Revitalizer Complex, I felt, once again, compelled to bring this new innovation to the public.

For me, as I aged, I noticed that my skin became much drier and flakey.  I am not a big advocate of moisturizing with water based crèmes,

we put on or in our bodies is so important. Coming from the cosmetic manufacturing industry, we all used parabens to preserve our products. But by the late 1990’s, a lot of buzz was being spread about the dangers surrounding parabens in skin care as well as color cosmetics. Methylparaben ,ethylparen, propylparaben, and butylparaben were commonly used. Parabens are synthetic preservatives that are being used in personal care, but also food and pharmaceuticals; allowing for longevity of the product and to meet FDA regulations.

What’s so great about cucumbers……well:
1. Cucumbers come in all shapes and sizes.
2. They never lose their shape
3. And they’re cool and smooth

Why is this on a menopausal blog?
…Because, after menopause the vagina tightens and shortens, resulting in
painful intercourse.
So painful in fact, that the thought of intercourse can make a woman cringe.
I recently attended a sex conference in San Diego (this was a legitimate course folks). Nothing kinky.

After using many different over the counter products to help eliminate vaginal dryness, I realized that it was a quick fix and they simply did not work. Most directed women to use their product on the outside of the vagina as a lubricant.  I found them to be cold, slimy or greasy, and simply made me feel uncomfortable.  They were all re-usable and I felt that could produce a contamination and I simply did not want to use that on my private area.

Have you ever looked at the ingredients on these over the counter products, such as Replens, Poise, K-Y Jelly and Astroglide?
