Boots targets menopausal skin with new skincare range
Boots has launched a brand-new skincare range, formulated to target visible skin changes experienced during perimenopause and the menopause.
Due to changes in hormone levels as early as perimenopause, skin can become dull, dry, sensitive and experience a loss of elasticity and uneven skin tone. Priced from £9.99, the new collection is designed to help those experiencing the menopause access affordable and targeted skincare.
The Boots own-brand skin:edit range includes eight skincare products, including a cleanser, eye cream, facial cream with SPF and night cream.
Jenna Whittingham-Ward, Head of Beauty for Boots Brands & Exclusives, said: “Entering the menopause comes with its challenges, and the visible changes to skin because of hormonal changes is one that is often overlooked but can have a huge impact on your confidence.
"Boots skin:edit range has been specifically formulated to target these skin changes, with all products tested and user-trialled on real women experiencing the menopause or perimenopause. It was important to us that the range was designed with accessibility in mind, so the whole collection is affordably priced from as little as £9.99.”
From April 2022, Boots announced it would cover NHS prescriptions costs for HRT for its team members in England. Last month, Boots was independently accredited as a Menopause Friendly Employer, becoming the first health and beauty organisation to achieve this status.
