Perimenopause, often referred to as menopause, can cause skin to become dry and even cause breakouts

A good skincare routine is vital at any age but what the skin needs in likely to change over time.

Speaking exclusively to GB News, an expert explained some ways to get "radiant and resilient" skin.

Nutritionist Riya Lakhani-Kanji suggested managing stress, using the right products and staying hydrated are the keys to glowing skin.

She said: "Navigating perimenopause? Your skin deserves extra TLC during this phase.

Staying hydrated can improve the appearance of the skin


"Hormonal changes can impact your skin's appearance, but with the right care, you can keep it radiant and resilient.

"During perimenopause, your skin may become drier due to hormonal shifts.

"Hydration is key to maintaining its elasticity and suppleness. Ensure you're sipping enough water throughout the day.

"Infuse your hydration routine with herbal teas like chamomile or green tea, which offer antioxidant benefits.

"Additionally, indulge in water-rich foods like cucumbers, watermelon and oranges to provide an extra dose of moisture to your skin."

With lots of beauty products on the market, knowing the best ones for your needs can be difficult.

Opting for a moisturiser enhanced with hyaluronic acid will hydrate the skin and help keep it looking youthful, Riya said.

She continued: "Choose a moisturiser enriched with ingredients like hyaluronic acid to provide intense hydration. Hyaluronic acid helps your skin retain moisture, keeping it plump and supple.

"Apply your moisturiser both morning and night to maintain hydration around the clock."

Yoga can help with stress


What you put in and on your body will affect how your skin looks. How you feel can also show on your face, so it is important to manage stress.

"Stress can take a toll on your skin's appearance," the expert added.

"Practice relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, or deep breathing to reduce stress levels.

"These practices promote healthy blood flow, support skin cell renewal, and maintain a vibrant complexion."
