If I could only do one thing for my face…

13th October 2022

Question: If you could only do one thing for your face, what would it be? It’s something I get asked surprisingly often: What’s the last thing I’d give up? Which tweakment or product or supplement is the one that makes the most difference?

Which is tricky. Not as bad as asking which of my children is my favourite, but heading that way. I love the results of so many of the things I try, or use or take.

Here’s what I’d say

So here’s my answer, and it’s not a tweakment, or skincare, nor even one of my beloved vitamin C or collagen supplements.

It’s hormone replacement – the pills and gels that I use every day to supplement what menopause has taken away (I’m 59, so I’m well through it). This is something I mentioned in the menopause ebook which you can find on the website (you can download it for free here) and I thought I should explain a bit more about why I say that.

Why would I choose hormone replacement?

Replacing the hormones in which you have become deficient will do more than any cream or serum to keep your skin in good nick. Seriously.

For sure, hormones aren’t going to relax wrinkles in the same way as toxin, or do what fillers do to replace the volume in my face that age and bone resorption are taking away, but packing oestrogen, progesterone et al back into my system reboots my collagen levels and hydration, slows down that ageing process and helps keep my skin looking great.


The all-round health benefits are massive

But the real lure of HRT is the other benefits it brings, for bone density, joint mobility and maintaining lean muscle mass, for chasing away the hot flushes, mood swings, brain fog and anxiety that so many of us experience around menopause. It makes me able to carry on feeling like myself, which is major.

The bottom line

Sure, I’d be reluctant to drop the toxin, the filler, the high-tech skincare and the supplements, but if push came to shove, the hormones would win.
