Why are we so anti-aging when it is a constant part of everyone’s life?
The silent yet growing stigma in maintaining one’s beauty and youthfulness, especially to women, inspired Claudine Viquiera to establish Pro Age Solutions. “What makes the menopausal journey even harder is the fact that there is no community locally that addresses the problem that women encounter,” Claudine Viquiera said. Her goal is to create a community of women in midlife to have a safe space to talk about their experiences while eradicating the taboos and stigma about perimenopause and menopause.
Going Pro Age: Roundtable Discussion
In the recent roundtable discussion held at the Marquis Events Place on August 22, 2023, industry leaders: restorative dermatologist Dra. Jean Marquez, regenerative medicine expert Dr. Joel Lopez, Veil Cosmetics’ research and development manager Mr. Jacob Park, and the one and only Cory Quirino joined Pro Age Solutions’ Chief Advocate and Founder Claudine Viquiera in a conversation about perimenopause and menopause. The roundtable discussion also started the #OwnYourAge movement which is a call to women to embrace and be proud of their age as it is a natural part of who they are.
Pro Age Solutions
Pro Age Solutions is a pioneering advocacy brand for perimenopausal and menopausal relief and overall wellness. The brand released their first product line that features skincare products formulated in Korea but are made and tested specifically for Filipina women who are experiencing skin issues due to menopause. Claudine explained that the brand started with skincare products as the skin is the most visible manifestation of the symptoms of menopause.
Menopause and the Skin
Menopause is a period in which a woman’s periods stop due to the gradual loss in ovarian follicular function and the decline of estrogen levels. Most of the women in this stage experience different symptoms, one of the most prevalent is skin issues. Some of these are: dryness and itching, wrinkles, acne, hot flashes, and melasma.
Menopause and Mental Health
Along with the skin issues, the changing hormonal levels also impact women’s mental health. On top of that, changes to their skin and their appearance can be a source of distress and may contribute to a loss of self-esteem and confidence.
The products will be available on Pro Age Solutions’ official website soon! Tune in to their social media at @proagesolutions on both Facebook and Instagram!
