From adult acne to pigmentation to hair thinning, here are a few signs of menopause on skin and hair.

With menopause, a woman’s body goes through a lot of changes, which can affect their entire system – from the way they look to the way they feel and the way they sleep. While, the answer to combatting the negative impact of menopause lies in exercise, healthy eating and adequate sleep, it is important to stress on understanding how menopause works. Menopause shows prominent symptoms on skin and hair. “Skin is the largest organ of the body. And it’s the one place where health or lack of it is visible,” wrote Nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar.
