By Rebecca Booth, M.D. OB/GYN & Co-Founder VENeffect Skin Care
One of the most common things I hear in my medical practice is how hormones affect the way my patients look and feel. This is no surprise given that mood, metabolism and physical appearance are all affected daily by a woman’s hormonal status. From the teenage blemish phase to aging skin—the ebb and flow of estrogen, in particular, has a key effect on the way we look. In looking for solutions for my patients and myself, I depend on a fabulous group of molecules found in nature that mimic the good things about estrogen, but with no risk—phytoestrogens. Through diet and topical applications, these amazing molecules have numerous benefits. I love sharing this little-known secret with my patients, and it led me to write a book on hormonal balance and to develop a skin care line to address the infrequently discussed but universal challenge—hormonal vitality!
I refer to the effects of phytoestrogen as the “Venus Effect,” leading us to name our skin care line Veneffect. We created an entire line of skin care powered by phytoestrogens to inspire our skin to glow as it does at peak hormonal vitality. There is much to be gained in understanding the beauty in our hormones—and many tools to live better in that knowledge.
