Losing hair and ageing prematurely? Check your oestrogen level

Dubai: We have all spent minutes, if not hours, in front of the mirror, pulling at the skin on our face, trying to iron out that subtle congregation of crow’s feet at the corner of our eyes, or stretching our necks to lift that visible droop around the jawline. While sun damage and stress might cross your mind as culprits behind your skin woes, oestrogen, specifically a lack of it, is probably the last factor to make it to the list. Yes, the hormone responsible for development of the female reproductive system, childbearing and regulating menstruation is a major player when it comes to skin health. Bad skin outbreaks, hair fall, hair loss are some of the side effects when an individual suffers from oestrogen deficiency. Dr Elhadi explained that low production of oestrogen by the ovaries, could result in premature menopause that could bring about a lot of fundamental changes in the health of a woman such as weak bones, bad skin and excessive hair loss. “Unfortunately, dietary and lifestyle stresses have pushed the menopausal age forward and women in their early 40s and even some in their mid to late-30s are experiencing oestrogen deficiency,” she explained.
