The cosmetic and anti-ageing industry is big business. Yet a major culprit for the skin thinning, wrinkling, and dryness associated with ageing is the decline in hormones such as estrogen and progesterone in women, and testosterone in men. This program examines the relationship between hormones and skin properties and explores the effects of hormone replacement on some of the skin problems associated with hormonal decline.
