Menopause Acne - Causes and Treatments

Menopause Acne - Causes and Treatments

Menopause is a transformative period in a woman’s life, symbolising the end of her reproductive years. While it brings about various changes in the body, one of the most unexpected and challenging aspects for many women is menopause acne. We understand the distress that a change in your skin can cause. As understanding our skin is important with how to tackle any conditions, let’s look at the causes of menopause acne.


Understanding Menopause Acne

Menopause acne, also known as hormonal acne, is a skin condition that often emerges during perimenopause and postmenopause. It occurs due to shifts in hormone levels and in particular a decrease in oestrogen and progesterone, coupled with the relative stability of hormones like testosterone. This hormonal imbalance can lead to an array of skin problems, with acne being a common occurrence.

Causes of Menopause Acne

Hormonal Imbalance:

The decrease in oestrogen levels compared to androgens, or male sex hormones, can result in increased oil production and clogged pores, which are the primary contributors to acne breakouts.

Collagen Depletion:

Menopause is accompanied by a decrease in collagen production, making the skin thinner and less elastic. This can make it more susceptible to irritation and acne development.


The menopause transition can often be a stressful time for many women. Stress triggers the release of hormones that stimulate oil production, exacerbating acne.

Skincare Changes:

As women age, their skincare needs change. Using products that are too harsh or not suitable for their evolving skin can worsen acne problems.
