A glimpse into the Private Life of Jane Atherton – Creator of Pause Hydra Creme the UK's No1 face cream for hormonally changing skin and the CEO of Phytomones Ltd.
Jane Atherton 53, founder of Phytomones Ltd skincare for Menopause
Clinical Nutritionist, Skin Therapist, best selling author of The Menopause Secret and
Lives in London and Hong Kong, married with two daughters.
My daughter Amber (myflashtrash.com)designed this beautiful piece of jewellery for my 50th birthday.
The monkey has been incorporated to represent a very special time we spent together as a family at a temple in Bali.
I love wearing tailored dresses and trousers suits, like this one from Nichole Farhi They are stylish and elegant, yet easy to wear for work.
Has to be Pause Hydra Creme, which I developed with some of the leading cosmetic scientists in the UK, to address the needs of hormonally changing skin during menopause.
It was almost 4 years in development and I am very proud to have created this unique 4 in 1 skin care treatment, which can be used as a moisturiser, serum, eyecream and neck cream all in one
Wayne and I have been together for 35 years - we have our moments, but he is the love of my life, an amazing father to our two daughters and my business partner and mentor.
I was at a trade show recently and discovered the amazing fragrances by Andrea Maack, an Icelandic artist. Coven is my favourite, so unique, people always compliment me on it.
I am lucky to spend my time in between London and Hong Kong. Walking the streets of these inspiring places, with their incredibly energy, never fails to fire up my instincts and give me confidence and strength.
When my daughters were younger we lived in Antigua for a few years. Many glorious,happy days were spent collecting tiny shells on our beach. Before we left the beautiful island we bottled a few. Two little jars of beautiful memories now sit on by bedside table, which cheer me up if I'm having a bad menopausal day.
At the moment I'm reading Nelson Mandela - long walk to freedom and of course, I keep a copy of my book The Menopause Secret on my bedside. Even though I wrote the book, I still find it an incredible reference source to quote from,especially for all of our very loyal ladies on our facebook page (facebook.com/menopauseremedies)
We have been going to The Ivy for years - their shepherds pie is still my favourite.
The staff are very attentive and the atmosphere is always busy and exciting.
There are many, but no two women's menopause are the same, so what works for one may not work for the other. However, keeping a journal and writing down your menopause journey can be helpful. This type of 'Therapy writing' is good for releasing emotions. Women are outnumbered in their own home when going through menopause and often feel lonely and that the people she loves most have no idea what she is going through. Writing things down is a great way to get things out of your system.
Knowing your not alone on this journey helps too which is why our facebook community is so strong
