Slightly different to LED treatments for skin concerns, but I have a Homedics IPL hair removal appliance which I've been using for about a year. It works by damaging the hair follicle, meaning that hair growth is slowed and sometimes stopped all together. I've had moderate success with it. 

Definitely looking forward to seeing what light technology will do in the near future!

I just had my first tonight for a small texture issue following a dermaplaning at the weekend and I feel like all the broken blood veins in my cheeks have lessened. Oh and the texture is gone.

So sad ... another tragic suicide.  

I really feel that mental health needs to be dealt with more openly, without people feeling embarrassed about having these “issues”.  It’s an illness that can affect anyone, just like any other form of illness, yet many people feel the need to hide what they’re feeling instead of seeking help or turning to a loved one for comfort or guidance. My heart goes out to his loved ones.

   Not exactly a new idea, but something that came to mind for me recently and worked pretty well was using a good finishing powder over a tinted moisturizer, like the Hourglass Ambient powders because they do such a good job of making your skin look blurred and radiant even in daylight. I've found I can get a decent look from them and tinted moisturizer instead of going for a full or medium coverage foundation. Best of all if anyone asks what foundation you are wearing if you tell them it's just a tinted moisturizer they will often compliment you on how good your skin is (that's when I tell them it's Hourglass finishing powders, they really are worth the splurge).

    Luckily I'm not at this stage yet but things that have worked really well for my mom are raspberry leaf tea and avocados. Also with the hot flashes she finds it helpful to add an extra layer of cotton or some natural breatheable material and when she feels a heat flash coming on she just quickly takes it off.

I’m on my second Mirena IUS, my first one was inserted in 2013 to help control very heavy periods, as the Pill just wasn’t working anymore and my GP had run out of high-dose Pill options to try, and the hormones from the Pill caused irreversible discolouration on my face, which my GP wasn’t happy about (me either). The Mirena lasts for 5 years, and I had mine replaced in March last year, but on its own it doesn’t seem to have any effect on peri-menopausal symptoms, as I’m still experiencing everything I’ve listed above.

As far as I can see in the Mirena brochure that I have, the Mirena protects the uterus from the proliferative effects of oestrogen therapy, so it is prescribed for women who are taking estrogen as their Hormone Replacement Therapy.  I’ll post a pic on the photo wall of the relevant pages, for those who want to read the section about the Mirena and HRT.

I've read that it's really hard to diagnose perimenopause through blood tests due to hormonal fluctuations. I ended up chatting to my doctor and she said the symptoms sounded very much like it. Cyclical night sweats, the odd hot flash (I once fogged up alllll my car windows, haha), randomly spaced periods, never-seen-before deep and growly acne at ovulation and pre-period, and angry-beast pixie rearing her head just before p-time was all the proof I needed. Hahahahahahaha, sigh. I'm hoping I'll be done and dusted with it by 43 like my mum was.

Thank you for all the comments. I am nearly 43, having a few symptoms but blood tests did not diagnose menopause (early or normal.) So was given various vitamin supplements.  I haven't got an older female in my family to talk to about it so I appreciate reading about your experiences. 

I'm interested to know what method of contraception people with the symptoms are using, and how it helped (or not). My doctor suggested mirena to even out the dispensing of hormone. Im currently on the combined pill Brevinor and have a week off  (pill period) after 2 packets.

Hey sooz my feet get cold when my cholesterol is high, and I have sweats and cold feet if I eat too much sugar. Could be nothing in your case or the case of anyone else reading this, but maybe something to consider with those symptoms. And they all change with hormones. My cholesterol and sugar control went out of control because of my thyroid - ie hormones!

Those symptoms sound all too familiar to me! My flushes are just confined to my upper body. My feet can still be as cold as ice - it’s so weird. Also the palpitations which I had checked out a few year ago. I’m sure coffee doesn’t help those! Took me awhile to figure out that these things were all hormone related. It’s amazing how it affects your whole body. And I thought puberty was bad! Lol.

My suggestion would also be to ensure you are double cleansing, even if you’re not wearing makeup, to make sure you get rid of SPF, which makes lots of people break out. 

I haven’t worn foundation this year due to travelling so much. I’m thinking I’ll just pick up a tinted moisturiser instead when I got Mecca to pick up my loop box on Wednesday.

Oh no! My skin is normal / oily but tends Oiler in the summer with the humidity (yay face sweat) so I’m strict about my routine - I allllways double cleanse - oil cleanse at night (I’m using the Body Shop Camomile Butter) taken off with a hot-as-poss facecloth (washed after very use) and follow with Micellar Cleanser, and in the morning it’s Ethique In Your Face then Micellar Cleanser again. Then it’s a straight-from-fridge spritz of Mario badescu spray, and then a moisturiser or serum. I find lighter moisturiser  enough in summer - using Skinfood Nourishing  moisturiser atm. I don’t use sun cream on my face, rather I use a spray block like Neutrogena Beach. Currently using an Aveeno one I got in Hawaii - not sure if it’s out here.

i don’t touch my face unless I’m cleaning it, wah bedding more often (pillowcases 2-3 times a week) and that all helps.

interestingly since giving up PPD dye my skin seems to have reacted by clearing up! 

I do still I’ll wear makeup - my foundation is an absolute dream in the heat and I’m obsessed. I used Too Faced Peach Perfect topped with a bit of powder (Mecca Life Proof or Nyx illuminating - the rainbow one) and set with Glamglow glowsetter. Base stays put even in this heat.

Hi ladies! Omg my skin is playing up so much with this hot weather, it looks horrible and spotty! I can't seem to calm it down no matter what I use. Does anyone else get this problem in hot weather?

I began with a strange symptom at 35, my fingers and palms would flush bright red and hot (on both hands) for absolutely no reason, just like having a hot flush but limited to my hands.  I chatted to my GP and he just shrugged it off, saying it’s nothing to worry about. This was around the same time that the crazy mood swings started. 

I also get a crawling feeling under my skin, not so much during the day, but at night, especially across my lower rib cage. Some nights it’s so bad that I wake up scratching in a semi-conscious state. Falling asleep or staying asleep has also become more difficult. 

Then the actual hot flushes and night sweats started. The horribly intense, pulsating heat that starts under my sternum and radiates outwards, spreading within seconds to the rest of my body, causing me to strip off all unnecessary layers of clothing, before suddenly disappearing as quickly as it began.

The latest symptom that started last month ... heart palpitations.  These are not fun. I know my Mom got these during perimenopause, as she always used to tell us when it happened, just in case it developed into something worse and we needed to call for medical assistance. It doesn’t last long, usually only a second or two, but it feels like my heart is skipping a beat or trying to jump out of my chest, or like I’m having a full on panic attack, and before I can even say anything to hubby, it’s gone and everything is back to normal. 

I’m just sharing these here, in case anyone else reading this thread is going through something similar and doesn’t have a family member they can talk to either.  I knew that the whole process can take around 8-10 years for some people (others less, a few unlucky ones, more), so not really any bad news there.

Ahhh, “personal summer”, I love that one! Mine is “my internal combustion system”. My back gets incredibly hot when driving, sitting on the sofa etc. I bought the cat a pet cooling pad before Xmas and stole it off him lol. 

I’m not sure 40 would be considered early peri menopause as that whole process can take up to ten years! (No what you just wanted to hear) Looking back I certainly noticed changes in my late 30s. I also went through a few years of cystic acne which I ended up having to take roaccutane to get rid of.

Thanks for sharing, worldofsooziewong. 

I’d love to be able to discuss this with my Mom, but sadly all I have are very vague memories of her going through early perimenopause when I was in my teens and early 20s (my Mom would have been between 40 and 48 during those years). She passed away at age 53, I was only 28 at the time, and discussing menopause or perimenopause was not something that crossed our minds back then.  My (younger) sister and I have tried to get hold of any medical records, but that ended up being a waste of time as 11 years down the line, her GP has retired and her medical files have either been archived somewhere or destroyed. 

I do remember her commenting on the “personal summer”, her term for a hot flush.  She’d suddenly open a window in the middle of winter and grab a wooden hand-held fan to madly fan herself, while saying, “Don’t mind me, I’m just having a personal summer”.  I now have one of those little fans next to my chair, it was a party favour from a friend’s Japanese’s themed celebration.

I haven’t tried this particular supplement but I am more than comfortable talking about menopause and my own experiences in a public space. The whole process seems so shrouded in mystery because no one talks about it. Even my own (female) doctor refers to it as ‘the change’! We need to talk more about it and not be ashamed about going through a natural process. There are so many weird symptoms that are completely unexpected - especially as no one talks about it. I was being driven crazy by a sensation of insects crawling through my hair until my mother said to look it up on the internet as she had the same symptom. It’s good to check in with your own mother as your menopause experience is likely to be similar to hers. 

I did use Remifemin for awhile and it worked really well for a few months then stopped working for me. I’ve found that the hot flushes are cyclical for me. They’ll drive me mad, almost hourly, for a few weeks then stop altogether. Only to start again. They seem to be becoming less intense each time though now, thankfully.  Best things to help with these are a fan, facial mists and dressing in layers, in natural fabrics. I’ve found that overall I run a lot hotter than I used to. I used to be someone who always felt the cold, now I even have my classroom windows open in winter lol. My poor students are all sitting shivering in their puffer jackets whilst in in short sleeves saying “is it just me or is it hot in here?” lol. 

Overall though it seems to be a very long process and I will be very glad when it’s finally over!

I guess my Best Buy (although I may have started using it in 2017?) would be Mecca’s To Save Face sunscreen. I’ve always hated using sunscreen on my face but this just feels like lovely skincare, and is also a good primer under makeup. I now finally wear sunscreen every day because of it.  

Worst buy for me was definitely Heimish Cleans All balm. After using it for about a month, my eyes had a severe allergic reaction to it. The pharmacist told me to never, ever use it again!

I'm absolutely loving the Mario Badescu Face Sprays. They have been a godsend in this heat especially at work where we have no air conditioning and the only fan I have is a tiny USB one that fits onto my computer. I'm especially loving the Lavender and Chamomile one. 

Also I'm obsessed with Soap & Glory Motherpucker Lip Plumper. Not a fan of the taste or smell but that product does amazing things for your lips.

Have any of you ladies tried (or are currently using) the Martin & Pleasance Harmony Menopause supplement, and wouldn’t mind sharing your opinion on whether it worked for you or not?  I found a few mixed reviews about it, and it’s not a brand listed in the BR Directory.  

I’ve been using the NuWoman 30+ supplement for the past 5 years, and that worked fine for me in helping to deal with PMS and hormonal mood swings, but as my 40th birthday lurks on the very near horizon, I’m starting to experience other hormonal changes, and the 30+ supplement just doesn’t seem to be working as well anymore.  Unfortunately, early menopause is genetic, so the night sweats and hot flushes have already begun, along with increased irritability. 

I understand that some women feel uncomfortable talking about menopause, so if you’re not happy about sharing your opinion about the supplement on this open forum, please feel free to contact me privately via Instagram or Facebook, the links to my social media pages can be found on my BR profile. Thanks.

Supergoop! Eye Cream spf 37. I'm actually sad that the online store I bought this from doesn't sell this brand anymore because it's so nice and light, non-irritating, has a mineral spf and the highest spf for the eye area in an eye cream that I have come across. I'm gonna hunt around for an online store that sells this brand and will ship it to Youshop once I use up my spf eyecreams from Origins.

    Origins Dr. Andrew WEIL  Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion. This isn't a lotion but a toner, I actually pulled this out when my skin was in recovery from the rash I mentioned earlier but it burned. It burns if I use it on skin after having hayfever, so I wouldn't recommend it for sensitive skin despite the claims. It also smells very strong and masculine like it was unscented but targeted at men. It's fine on my skin if my skin is normal and doesn't have any irritation but this line was supposed to be for sensitive skin. Luckily, this wasn't something I paid for but a gwp.
