Protecting health and wellbeing is really important for mothers in their 50s who are likely to be affected by menopause. This time of life can bring a host of additional stresses, on top of juggling a busy schedule. So, you need to remember to care for yourself, especially if you’re coping with a variety of menopause symptoms.
Mother’s Day is a great reminder to take care of yourself. Because whether you’re a mum to teens, grown-up kids, or you help care for grandchildren, you deserve to look and feel your best at any age.
Here are five ways to treat yourself this Mother’s Day (and as well as being enjoyable, each of these can help address menopause symptoms). But don’t save these treats just for Mother’s Day, instead build them into your routine to ensure you feel your best throughout the year:
1: Go for a long walk
If menopause symptoms are making you feel irritable or tired, a long walk is a great way to boost your mood. Not only will you be getting physical exercise but Vitamin D from sunlight will improve your mental health too.
Exposure to sunlight also increases your levels of serotonin which in turn helps regulate mood and sleep patterns. Go alone for a peaceful walk or take the family for some quality time together.
2: Embrace your inner child
Does life sometimes feel like a non-stop routine of work and chores? Then plan something fun for the weekend. Join the kids (or grandkids) at the trampoline park, watch a feel-good children’s movie, eat popcorn or fly a kite on the beach.
3: Indulge in a long lie-in
If ever there was a time to enjoy an extra hour or two in bed, it’s Mother’s Day. Menopause can leave you feeling exhausted so take up those offers of breakfast in bed and recharge your batteries.
4: Take a luxurious bath
Do you usually jump in and out of the shower as quickly as possible so that you can plough through other tasks? Well, now’s the time to indulge with a long soak. Grab your favourite magazine, light a scented candle and let the stresses of everyday life melt away. If you’re dealing with hot flushes, you can always keep the temperature a little lower but either way, a relaxing bath is a great way to soothe the irritability caused by menopause.
5: Give your confidence a boost
If you’re a mum in your 50s (or approaching this age), you might have noticed that your appearance has changed dramatically in recent years.
You may have blamed the stress of family life but in reality, menopause could be the reason for sudden ageing. That’s because during menopause, your body’s oestrogen levels naturally decline. In turn, this causes the loss of collagen and elastin – both essential proteins in maintaining firm, healthy-looking skin. The good news is there is something you can do to address the changes you’re seeing in your skin by using a moisturising routine especially designed for menopausal skin.
Emepelle is the breakthrough skincare product clinically proven to target the root cause of ageing in skin affected by menopause.
Featuring MEP Technology®, Emepelle helps the skin act as if the oestrogen were still present. The technology stimulates the skin’s messaging system (the oestrogen receptors) encouraging your skin cells to work more efficiently.
Women who have switched to Emepelle report skin that’s firmer, brighter and more hydrated. The unique formulation is packed with effective anti-ageing ingredients including retinol, peptides, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid as well as intensive moisturisers and antioxidants.
With just two products; Emepelle Serum and Emepelle Night Cream, you get all the ingredients you need to combat the changes caused by menopause.
