Caire Beauty is a Black- and women-owned business with a line of skin-care products geared toward older women. This moisturizer doesn’t address symptoms of menopause, per se, but rather signs of aging that also occur around the time menopause does.
As we get older, the outer layer of our skin thins. Changes in connective tissue cause the skin to lose strength and elasticity, according to the MedlinePlus. Over time, exposure to sun and environmental pollutants also causes oxidative damage to the skin. According to a study published in 2021 in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, oxidative stress “can exacerbate skin pigmentation and aging, inducing changes in skin complexion homogeneity, wrinkling, sagging, dryness, and roughness.”
Among other ingredients, this face, neck, and chest moisturizer contains hydrating hyaluronic acid, as well as vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant, which can counteract some of the oxidative damage accrued through years of sun and pollutant exposure, according to the Cleveland Clinic.
