Embrace Menopause with Confidence: SBC Skincare's Guide to a Comfortable Transition

Menopause is a natural phase in a woman's life, but it can bring along various challenges and changes. From hormonal fluctuations to skin and body concerns. Find the perfect products and routines that make you feel fabulous and unstoppable!

What are the stages of menopause? 

Menopause isn't a sudden event but a gradual process consisting of three stages:

  1. Peri-menopause: This is the phase leading up to menopause when hormonal changes begin. Women may experience irregular periods, hot flashes, and mood swings.
  2. Menopause: Menopause is officially recognised when a woman goes without a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months. Typically, menopause happens around age 51.
  3. Post-menopause: This is the name given to the time after you haven’t had a period for a year. During this stage, menopausal symptoms, such as hot flushes, may get better.
