I love secret beauty tricks that really work. Using estrogen on my face is one of them. I use a cream called Estrace. It is only available by prescription. I have it because, as a post-menopausal woman, my private area is less “youthful” (If this is TMI – skip ahead to the next paragraph) It is dryer, takes longer to become aroused, and the interior walls are thinning. So my Gynochologist prescribed Estrace to apply on and in, to help plump and moisten things up, down there.
Where else can I use plumping and moistening? Oh yeah, my face! I had already read about the potential cosmetic benefits of using an estrogen cream on my face. I had to do some research (using reputable sources, not just a “google” search source) and found that there is indeed evidence that applying an estrogen cream about three days a week does help diminish fine lines and thicken skin. It works – I use it.
I would be terribly remiss though, if I did not mention that there is evidence that estrogen can increase chances of some cancers. Further, I don’t truly know what detrimental effects using estrogen topically in such a way may have. So this is somewhat risky. If you have any questions, contact your doctor or dermatologist.
Thus far, I have been happy with the effects of using the cream above and below.
