As we age hormone levels change which can have an effect on your skin.

.

Perimenopause starts off in the early 40s and it's a good idea to get ahead of it with skincare, supplements and nutrition.

Incorporating vitamin C night creams is very beneficial when experiencing perimenopause. Stabilised vitamin C can only be used at night on the skin as it reacts with sunlight. Sothys detoxifying resurfacing night cream is amazing, and the closest thing to a facial in a night cream.

Vitamin C is a powerful ingredient to fight against environmental issues and helps build protection within the skin from free radicals. Our skin can't produce collagen without vitamin C so it is a must-have ingredient if you're looking to boost and safeguard collagen levels for anti-ageing.

Vitamin C can help boost your hydration long-term also, and there is a link between the drop of estrogen and the lack of skin hydration during perimenopause. Keep hydrated from the inside out, again it's important to be ahead of the symptoms and try to minimise them rather than trying to cure an issue. If you are allowing yourself to get dehydrated and are gasping for water it may lead to increased hot sweats and extreme dehydrated of the skin.

Some key ingredients to look out for when choosing the correct skincare products include:

* Green tea extract in creams may slow down the signs of ageing and reduce sagging skin and wrinkles.

* Hyaluronic acid enhances the skin's ability to retain moisture and smooth skin.

* Peptides stimulate collagen production.

* Retinol (Vitamin A) boosts the amount of collagen your body makes and plumps up your skin.

The award-winning Kingdom Pride in Kerry festival is back next week and Killarney will take centre stage.

Kingdom Pride will be celebrated in towns all across the county from July 17 to 21.

The organisation’s flagship Party in the Park event will be held again in Killarney House and Gardens, following the Pride march in the town centre on July 20.

This year, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, Kingdom Pride in Kerry is inviting the people of Kerry to come to show their unity by bringing Palestinian flags and kites to the march, and to the Party in the Park.

“Pride is a protest for human rights all over the world. Here in the Kingdom, we have been so lucky to receive tremendous community support from our allies and supporters, and we see the struggle for liberation of all peoples as a united cause,” said Daniel Quirke, chairperson of the organising committee.

“Our events have always welcomed everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, religion, or nationality. We truly believe that together we can create positive change through caring for and loving one another. This year is no exception, and we look forward to helping to highlight the Palestinian cause, and to bringing people together to keep generating positive change for all people.”

Events will take place in Cahersiveen, Listowel, Killorglin, Tralee and Dingle, and include an Irish comedy night with Áine Gallagher, an Irish-language movie screening, yoga, sea swimming, poetry and storytelling, bowling, pitch and putt, a lively drag night at the INEC, and plenty more for people of all ages.

“We do our best to keep tickets as low-cost as possible, and we have lots of events that are totally free to attend. It is important to us that people can share Pride with us, regardless of income. Especially with the rise of the cost of living putting a strain on people’s pockets.” added the chairperson.
