How Can I Make My Hair Look Thicker?

How Can I Make My Hair Look Thicker?

October 12, 2022

Whether your hair was a perpetual styling challenge or you were blessed with voluminous locks that effortlessly fell into place, menopause is the great equalizer. Age-related hair changes affect us all to some degree or another. Hormonal fluctuations dry out our scalps, interrupt hair growth cycles, and shrivel our follicles. In place of our robust strands grow wispy fibers that shed when we sneeze. With each passing year, this trend continues until we finally ask ourselves, “How can I thicken my hair?”

How to Soothe Itching 'Down There'

September 14, 2022

If you have a vulva, chances are you’re familiar with that wave of panic that comes when you’re in a public setting and you feel a twinge below the belt. Not wanting to be crude, you resist the urge to scratch as the twinge escalates to a full-blown itch. You steel your nerves just long enough to find a safe haven in the nearest bathroom and scratch your way to sweet relief. Vulvovaginal itching is common at all ages and life stages, but menopause takes it to a whole new level. And while our mothers and grandmothers may have resolved themselves to “just live with it,” we don’t have to! So, here’s what you should know.

How to Get Rid of Menopausal Belly Fat

How to Get Rid of Menopausal Belly Fat

September 13, 2022

90% of all women gain 12 to 15 pounds during the stages of menopause… Ouch! Weight gain around the middle aka “Belly Fat” is associated with increases in blood pressure, fasting glucose, and cardiovascular disease, so managing weight gain is no longer about vanity, it’s about longevity. 

As we age, our muscle mass decreases so we burn fewer calories, we often have more chronic stress, and we sleep less. These factors contribute to weight gain AND can make weight loss even more difficult. Fortunately, there are choices within our control to start feeling better faster. 

Here are 3 simple but powerful levers you can push to help support midlife weight loss: what you eat, when you eat, and how much you eat. You can push one, two, or all three of these levers depending on how you currently feel, how you want to feel, and how quickly you want to feel better.

How I Decided To Start My Business During Menopause

How I Decided To Start My Business During Menopause

September 12, 2022

I’m Rochelle Weitzner, the founder of PAUSE Well-Aging™, a skincare line developed to find solutions to the pain points experienced during menopause, but there’s something you should know: I knew nothing about menopause before it happened to me. I vaguely knew that menopause had to do with estrogen fluctuations and periods ceasing forever. I didn’t have any idea that there were three stages of it and that once you started menopause, you were in it for the rest of your life.

I had heard about hot flashes but had no clue what one would actually feel like… until it happened to me. During the summer of 2017, I was driving to the beach and suddenly found myself sweating. I mean really sweating. So, I cranked up the A/C and was ready to crack a joke about the heat when I noticed everyone else in the car was shivering. And then it hit me: I was 48 and this was my first hot flash.

Three women celebrating birthday with Confidence After 50

Confidence After 50

September 10, 2022

Studies have shown that many women lose confidence when they hit their 50s.  It’s argued that the physiological changes of an aging body exacerbated by a culture infatuated with youth and beauty leave the 50-year-old female insecure, alone in a house once vibrant with kids and life while the husband golfs, and the kids study at college. 

Hogwash!  I am going to very unfashionably disagree with these experts and these studies to say that for women, our 50s is when we are rocking and rolling! Decades of growth, experience, and life have made us veritable superheroes, and at 50, it is time to start enjoying those superpowers your younger self could only dream of. Let’s chart your transformation into a Rockstar decade(ish) by decade to show you why your 50th birthday is a time to open a beautiful bottle of wine and celebrate the upcoming best vintages of your life!
