After 40-45 years, women experience a second hormonal reorganization of the body, during which almost all structures of the skin are observed atrophic processes.
The process of cell renewal is not the same as it was in adolescence, a complete cell renewal occurs in 70 days, and maybe more. Skin cells thicken, the upper layer of the epidermis becomes loose, which causes moisture to evaporate "at the speed of light."
There is also a change in collagen fibers, their destruction and decreased production, and the production of female sex hormones for estrogens is also reduced.
