Notice changes in your skin during menstrual cycle? Here’s why it happens

Periods can be excruciatingly painful. But not only that, the menstrual cycle can also lead to emotional distress, mood swings, food cravings, and pattern changes in your skin.

If you too experience certain skincare issues during your periods, know that you are not alone.

Well, it’s because of hormonal change. Our skin changes during each phase of the cycle — menstruation, follicular, ovulation, or luteal phase.

What you need to do is adapt your skincare routine to the changes in your skin and prevent breakouts and irritation. Read on to know more:

Menstruation

At this time, the skin tends to become dry because of a drop in the production of progesterone and estrogen. Create a good time for ‘self-care’, using gentle moisturisers and creamy cleansers that will make your skin plumper and also hydrate it. Incorporate more hyaluronic acid and ceramides into your routine.

As the period ends, the body starts producing oestrogen. As a result, the skin becomes healthy and plump due to increased collagen production. This is the best time to test out new products and experiment more as the skin is less sensitive. However, she suggests regular application of moisturisers.

Ovulation 

This is a fertile window, while some women may glow, others may get pimples as the skin is prone to become oilier. As such, practise exfoliation or try a clay mask and clean twice every day to avoid breakouts

Luteal phase

During this phase, the release of progesterone tends to clog the pores, leading to more breakouts. Cleanse with fragrance-free washes and use non-comedogenic moisturisers and oils.
