As estrogen decreases, the production of melanin slows down. Melanin is used to protect the skin. With a reduction of melanin in our skin it may appear to be paler. Without the extra production of this protection we may be more prone to “age spots” or hyperpigmented areas on the skin where we have had sun exposure in the past.
A proper zinc oxide sunblock should also be used to protect your skin from further sun damage.
As the estrogen levels decrease in woman the testosterone levels continue to stimulate the production of sebum (oil) resulting in oilier skin thus leading to the possibility of adult acne.
