Pruritus (Itchy Dry Skin)

As hormone levels plummet, skin can become dry, slack, thin, and may notice more hair on face and less on scalp.

Pruritus is a dry itchy skin condition which affects many women in their menopausal stage. The good news is there are lots of natural choices to take care of the beautiful skin.

Menopause and Itchy Dry Skin – The Hormone connection

The female reproductive hormone, estrogen is responsible for triggering the body’s production of collagen and body’s oils, that keeps the skin moist and supple. During the perimenopause and menopause stage there is reduction in the estrogen levels. This results in reduction of collagen and oils which leads to dry itchy skin.
