Glowy Skin Through the Cycle: Tips for Menstrual Skin Concerns

Navigating the ebbs and flows of our menstrual cycles entails dealing with the skin changes that come with hormonal fluctuations. From bothersome breakouts to sudden dryness, it's common to experience menstrual skin concerns that may impact our confidence during this time of the month. Nevertheless, by equipping yourself with the proper knowledge and adhering to a tailored skincare routine, you can maintain radiant and healthy skin throughout your entire cycle. Explore these glowy skin tips to effectively manage menstrual skin concerns and embrace a confident you.

Your Skin's Journey Through the Menstrual Cycle

Before diving into tips, it's crucial to understand why these skin concerns arise. Hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle can lead to increased sebum production, clogged pores, and inflammation, resulting in breakouts, oiliness, or dry patches.

Menstrual Phase (Days 1 to 6)

Referred to as the period phase, this period witnesses the lowest levels of estrogen and progesterone hormones. Consequently, the skin may feel dry and sensitive, accentuating the visibility of lines and wrinkles.

Follicular Phase (Days 7 to 11)

Initiating with menstruation and concluding at ovulation, the follicular phase sees a rise in estrogen levels. This surge aids in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production, fostering the growth of elastic skin cells. This stimulation enhances cell turnover, bestowing a plumper, fresher, and more youthful complexion.

Ovulation Phase (Days 12 to 16)

Before ovulation, estrogen levels peak, leading to a radiant and glowing complexion.

Luteal Phase (Days 17 to 28)

In this stage, progesterone levels escalate, prompting sebum glands to produce excess oil. This can result in acne flares preceding the onset of menstruation.

Tip 4: Use Soothing Masks to Calm Inflammation

During this time, pamper your skin with soothing face masks. Ingredients like dilo oil, passionflower extract, or sikeci oil can help calm inflammation and reduce redness. Incorporate a mask into your routine once or twice a week to give your skin that extra boost of nourishment and relaxation.

Tip 5: Mind Your Diet and Lifestyle

Ensuring healthy skin during your menstrual cycle involves more than just skincare. Your lifestyle plays a significant role in skin health. Pay attention to your diet by reducing intake of high-sugar, high-fat, and simple carbohydrate foods. Additionally, if dairy exacerbates acne, consider eliminating it from your diet for better skin results.


Navigating menstrual skin concerns doesn't have to be a daunting task.
