Why do women's skin changes at the age of 45?

Women often start having dry and dull skin at this age. This happens due to the low estrogen level in the body. Our skin has estrogen receptors, which help in the secretion of sebum. Sebum is a waxy oily substance. It protects and moisturizes the skin. It also keeps dull and dry skin young for a long time. It also helps in making collagen. This gives flexibility to the skin. That's why when the estrogen level is low, problems related to the skin start.
