Menopause is a natural phase in the life of every female over 40 and has many effects all over the body. In terms of the skin, menopause leads to wrinkles, dark circles, acne, dryness, itchiness, hot flashes and many other processes all because of hormonal changes within the body. The good thing is that you are not alone. We all want to slow down the signs of aging and lessen the effects of menopause to maintain youthful skin for as long as possible.
It’s so important to treat your skin with products that will actually work before, during and after menopause. Emepelle is a new world-leading skincare brand for menopause skin that uses technologically advanced ingredients to help your skin look beautifully radiant and youthful. This article will give you the low-down on all things Emepelle and provide some useful anti-aging tips.
What is Emepelle?
Emepelle is a breakthrough and world-leading skin innovation designed to restore the natural radiance of perimenopause and menopause skin. As the first menopause skin to use MEP technology, Emepelle could revolutionise your skin within 4-8 weeks!
During perimenopause and menopause, women experience Estrogen Deficient Skin (EDS).
After the age of 20, estrogen levels fall every year and with it falls elastin, collagen and moisture levels. Estrogen is a crucial hormone in maintaining healthy and vibrant skin because it activates estrogen receptors in skin cells to produce elastin and collagen, and to increase cell turnover, which gives the appearance of plump and youthful-looking skin.
Within the first 5 years of menopause, skin collagen levels decrease by 30%.
In each subsequent year of menopause, skin collagen levels decrease by 1%.
In each postmenopausal year, skin thickness declines by 1%.
EDS decreases defence against oxidative stress, which means that collagen production decreases and skin becomes thinner, leading to increased wrinkling, decreased elasticity and decreased moisture.
Because of thinner and drier skin, dark blood vessels beneath the skin become more visible, which leads to the formation of dark circles under the eyes. This is worsened by dehydration (drink more water) and sun overexposure (wear a strong SPF).
Emepelle is the best treatment for under eye circles because it has a soothing effect to reduce swelling and shrink dilated blood vessels. It also moisturises under the eyes gently to increase plumpness and reduce the sinking effect that can occur under the eyes. Make sure to also get enough sleep (6-8 hours recommended every night) and you can try applying a cold compress under the eyes to stimulate blood circulation – put a spoon in the freezer overnight and press the back of the spoon gently into the skin after you wake up, it’ll make you look and feel rejuvenated and awake!
Taking supplements, eating a diet rich in nutrients and vitamins, exercising and drinking a lot of water are all essential for women during menopause. However, these factors are not enough to alone conquer the effects that menopause can have on the skin. Adding Emepelle to your skincare routine will have a whole host of clinically-proven results – leaving the skin hydrated, brighter and firmer.
What is MEP technology in skincare?
Methyl estradiolpropanoate (MEP) is a non-hormonal estrogen receptor stimulator used as an active ingredient in Emepelle’s products.
It’s the first innovation in the world to non-hormonally counter the effects of EDS in perimenopause and menopause skin.
MEP has estrogen-like effects, which helps to fight against EDS, but is metabolised in the blood into an inactive compound, which means it does not have the side effects of estrogen. Basically, MEP is a natural way to tackle the root problem of menopause – diminished estrogen levels – and is safe for everyone to use.
The benefits of MEP technology
MEP technology is clinically proven as an anti-aging solution to deliver these results after 14 weeks:
- Increase in hydration by 54%
- Increase in luminosity by 39%
- Increase in firmness by 19%
Due to the accelerated aging effects of menopause on the skin, we need stronger and more intense products to penetrate deep into the skin and increase elasticity and collagen. MEP is the best anti-aging treatment because it has been scientifically formulated as a menopause treatment.
MEP goes to the root cause of menopause – a fall in estrogen levels – and naturally restores imbalances in a natural and non-invasive manner.
Emepelle is the only anti-aging cream to use MEP technology to rejuvenate, restore and rebalance the skin.
Emepelle combines MEP with advanced cosmeceutical ingredients like retinol, peptides, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid to reduce the effects of aging and menopause.
Can you use the Emepelle serum and cream together?
Yes, you can absolutely use the serum and cream together!
Emepelle comes in the form of a serum and a night cream. For best results, Emepelle recommends combining both products. Emepelle Serum can be used every morning and night, and Emepelle Night Cream can be used every night, following the serum.
Serums are lightweight formulas designed to nourish, protect and hydrate the skin. They combine a high dose of a few powerhouse ingredients to counter specific skin concerns, which in the case of Emepelle, is dryness, itchiness, wrinkles, fine lines, dullness (the list goes on).
Creams are heavier than serums and have the main function of locking moisture into the skin.
As we age our skin becomes drier and less bright because of changes in hormones and decreased oil production, which means that moisturising creams become an ever more important step in our skincare routines. Moisturising creams should be applied on top of serums to lock in moisture, brighten the complexion and make wrinkles less obvious in appearance.
It’s best to use serums and creams together to ensure the skin stays hydrated, allowing your products to work most efficiently. Creams alone are not enough to counter the effects of aging and to prevent wrinkles from forming.
Moisturising is also very important in reducing the appearance of forehead wrinkles.
How to use Emepelle Serum
Emepelle Serum is the best treatment to reduce wrinkles on the face, jaw and neck areas. It’s a silky, lightweight, fast-absorbing all-in-one serum which makes it ideal to wear under makeup.
Emepelle Serum combines MEP technology with active ingredients to increase skin luminosity, hydration, firmness, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The ingredients of the Emepelle Serum are as follows:
MEP technology 1%: Restores the natural function of Estrogen Deficient Skin.
Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Ferulic Acid: A blend of antioxidants for powerful free-radical defence. It assists fibroblasts in the production of collagen, protects vitamin A against oxidation, assists the conversion of vitamin E back to its active form to prevent melanin formation.
Niacinamide 4%: This increases cell turnover which stimulates the production of collagen, boosts barrier functions and evens skin tone and texture. It also provides antioxidant protection against environmental stressors like sunlight and pollution, which can damage thin and sensitive menopause skin.
Peptides: A blend of active peptides to combat oxidative stress and help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
Hyaluronic acid: This is a glycosaminoglycan that is naturally found in your skin. It binds to water and carries it into the skin to preserve hydration and give a plumped complexion. When the skin is hydrated, fine lines and wrinkles appear diminished and therefore the skin looks and feels smoother and more even.
To incorporate the Emepelle Serum into your skincare routine, you can use it in the morning and at night as your serum – after cleansing and before moisturiser. Follow with an SPF (so important with anti-aging!) in the morning and the Emepelle Night Cream in the evening.
Dispense 1-2 pumps of the serum into your hands and apply to the face and neck with light upward sweeping motions. Finish by gently sweeping the remainder of the serum around the eye area for eye wrinkles.
Tested by leading dermatologists, the Emepelle Serum has proven anti-aging effects within 4-8 weeks of use. These include the reduction of dark circles under the eyes, reduced wrinkles and increased radiance.
How to use Emepelle Night Cream
Emepelle Night Cream is a luxurious cream product to be used every night after cleansing and after the Emepelle Serum, for best results.
This cream is the most advanced anti-aging skincare product of our time.
The ingredients of Emepelle Night Cream are as follows:
MEP Technology 2%: Restores the natural function of EDS.
Retinol: Boosts the amount of collagen the body produces and plumps out skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves skin tone and colour and reduces mottled patches. Retinol makes the skin more sensitive to sun exposure, which is why it’s found most commonly in night creams.
Niacinamide 8%: This increases cell turnover which stimulates the production of collagen, boosts barrier functions and evens skin tone and texture. It also provides antioxidant protection against environmental stressors like sunlight and pollution, which can damage thin and sensitive menopause skin.
3 types of peptides: a blend of active peptides combats oxidative stress and help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
Hyaluronic acid: This is a glycosaminoglycan that is naturally found in your skin and it’s able to bind water and carry it into the skin to preserve hydration and give you a plumped complexion.
Shea butter, grape seed oil and apricot kernel oil hydrate the skin and improve the skin's moisture barrier.
Emepelle Night Cream is proven to improve hydration, brightness and firmness within 4-8 weeks of use every night.
Apply to cleansed skin. Use the little spoon provided to measure a pea-sized amount of the cream and apply it to the face and neck with light upward sweeping motions. After use, rinse the spoon under warm water.
