Skincare can be confusing, not to mention time consuming and expensive. With so many products on the market, and new must-have ingredients to try, it can be difficult to know what products you should be using, in what order to get the best results.
Throw in menopausal skin changes and things can get even more confusing. Dryness, dullness, fine lines, spots, redness, flushing and irritation – menopausal skin can act very confused!
This is exactly what inspired us to create Living M. To remove the confusion and save you time and money with an easy-to-use skincare system made up of multi-benefit products with proven active ingredients. We co-created our skincare range with a community of perimenopausal and menopausal women to target all of their skin concerns. One of the questions we heard most often was – “what should my morning and evening routine look like?” In menopause, you need a different approach to your AM/PM routine which is why we have created the DAY AND NIGHT SET for the ultimate day to night skincare system for menopausal skin.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
Menopause can be a hormonal rollercoaster that can play havoc with our skin as well as our mood. It can be tempting to try lots of new products or add more steps to your skincare regime but this can be counter-productive and make matters worse. Skin becomes much more prone to sensitivity in menopause so the last thing you need to do is to overload your skin with a complicate skincare regime. The more products you use, the greater the risk of irritation so streamlining your skincare is a must. We’ve kept it simple with a powerhouse moisturiser duo that tackles all your menopausal skin concerns in 1 easy to use AM/PM routine.
YOU NEED MULTI-BENEFIT PRODUCTS FOR REAL RESULTS
Multi-benefit products are designed to target multiple skin concerns at the same time. They are both time and cost effective not to mention better for the environment – using less product is more sustainable and means less waste. Multi-tasking skincare products are ideal for menopausal skin which can have many and often contradictory needs. Skin can be super dry but breaking out at the same time, flushing and sensitive but in need of powerful actives to combat the effects of accelerated collagen loss. Our DAY & NIGHT SET features two expertly blended multi-benefit products designed for morning and night time use.
IN MENOPAUSE, IT’S ALL ABOUT BALANCE
Menopausal skin can seem really confused. Dry and tight on the one hand but breaking out in a way you might not have experienced since your teen years on the other. You need powerful actives that will make a real difference to your skin but won’t irritate it, it's all about balance. Products claiming 'our strongest formulation ever' aren’t what your skin needs. It's important to use products with active ingredients included at a level that is optimised for menopausal skin. Our expertly balanced formulations have been developed to complement each other perfectly for maximum results.
FOCUS ON SUPERSTAR INGREDIENTS THAT PAIR WELL
In menopause we need to look for ingredients that increase hydration, glow and collagen production. We are talking about powerful actives that will make a real difference to your skin BUT they need to be formulated at the right levels and in a way that isn’t going to cause irritation. For optimal results you need a combination of ceramides, peptides, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, retinol and niacinamide in your skincare routine.

Super A Retinol Sleep Cream is a high-performance 0.5% retinol blend designed to accelerate cell turnover for radiant, smoother, stronger skin. In menopause, we need retinol.

In menopause the retinol formulation is key. Super A Retinol Sleep Cream has been specifically designed for menopausal skin so you can enjoy all the benefits of retinol without the irritating downsides. It contains 0.5% encapsulated time-release retinol to target cells at a deeper level and minimise irritation.
