And that's where peptides come in. A secret weapon for a glowing complexion and a shortcut to slaying the skincare game during this exhilarating phase of life.

So, what's the deal with peptides? Well, they work as cheerleaders for your skin. Yay to boosted collagen production! Yay to smoother skin and less visible fine lines! 

But there’s more - peptides don't just boost collagen and fight signs of ageing. 

Did you know they’re  also masters of texture improvement? By reducing the appearance of pores, the surface of skin is less rough, more filled in and more ‘intact’ giving it more bounce and surface smoothness. 

And there’s even more to these powerhouses of perfect skin. They also give good glow, by promoting cell turnover and exfoliation for improved radiance. Hello high wattage! 

And of course it would be remiss to not mention hydration. The icing on the cake is that they attract moisture like a magnet, swooping in to save the day as menopause messes with our moisture levels. By incorporating them into your daily routine,  skin stays plump, juicy, and totally hydrated think of them as electrolytes for your skin after a gruelling workout. Or a  long refreshing drink on a hot summer day – pure bliss!

Finally (we could keep going all day on this one) peptides are like little skin superheroes with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers, quietly working to shield your skin from environmental baddies and calm down any redness or irritation that dares to show up. Menopausal skin can be a drama queen, but peptides are here to tame the chaos and restore balance.

So, how do you get in on this peptide party? Look for skincare products that are packed with these skin-loving wonders, in particular leave on formulas such as serums, creams, and masks that can get on with the job whilst you get on with yours.

Remember, consistency is key. Peptides may not work overnight but trust us, your skin will thank you with time. 

Make peptides your skincare BFFs during menopause and rock that glowing complexion like the superstar you are. Get ready to slay, gorgeous!

Like with any first meet, you grab on to a hook to start the conversation, and yes, the shirt was our cue but we quickly moved on when I asked Nicola about her work and learning of her expertise but also experience of intense spinal problems.
