Did you know … As the men in your life age, they will become more masculine-looking … and so will you.

DermRF_Categories_DidKnowAcross cultures, men historically have looked for women with clear skin, high-arched eyebrows, full lips and a cherubic face. These qualities, recognized as beautifully feminine, are the physical features associated with women at peak fertility.

We’ve all heard it said that men look more distinguished as they age, that they become more masculine in appearance. The unfortunate reality is that women do, too. Over time, our facial features begin to lose the defining characteristics that the human brain recognizes as feminine. Because of a decline in feminizing hormones as we age, our faces become more angular, our eyebrows flatten, facial hair grows and lips thin. In the 1900s, when our life expectancy was forty-seven, these changes came at a time when we were more prepared to accept them. Today, that’s just the halfway mark, which means we need to deal with the hormonal complications of menopause when we’re feeling far from old.

Fortunately, there are options, such as hormone replacement therapy (HRT), to help us stay looking and feeling great. HRT can keep skin juicy by preserving collagen, reduce the risk of heart attack and osteoporosis, keep the brain sharp and lessen hair growth on the face. Consult with your doctor to learn more about the medical advantages and disadvantages, and if HRT is a suitable option for you.

Whether you’re 18 or 81, the desire to be desirable never goes away. Be proactively involved in your health and well-being to get ahead of the game when it comes to managing the impact of hormones on your appearance.
