It’s well known that estrogen, the key female hormone, keeps the female reproductive system healthy and functioning throughout a woman’s reproductive years. Also, estrogen plays a key role in anti-aging by keeping skin soft, firm and supple by encouraging the production of collagen, the elastic fibers that provide skin with its structural support. At menopause, estrogen levels drop sharply–and women see and feel some drastic skin changes. Fortunately, there now are many scientifically tested ingredients that can both reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore the skin’s luster and softness to its pre-menopausal, youthful look and feel.
The fountain of youth
Estrogen is a powerhouse within the female body. It brings on puberty, regulates the menstrual cycle, preserves bone density, keeps hair full and healthy, maintains body temperature and helps regulate cholesterol levels. It also helps the skin produce collagen.
