Today it's time to get real, Dealing with that time of the month, is never pleasant, and yet your skin decides to hate you too. However, I am here to be your fairy skin mother and tell you there is a light at the end of the period. Here are ways to prevent and treat hormonal skin during that time of the month!
Grabbing PMS by the T*ts
Okay, so its the week before and PMS is starting to creep up on you with little signs that aunt flo is coming to ruin your cute panties and your skin. But do not worry you can handle her.
The hormone levels in your skin change and you produce more oil during this time, so to help prevent a painful breakout you are going to begin to unclog those pores and remove excess oil before it becomes an issue.
There are ways you can do this, either us an exfoliating face wash ( a gentle one ), Use a toner or use a facemask with charcoal in to help restore balance to your skin.
Avoid The Chocolate
Sorry hunnies, but sugary foods are a no go during this time, your skin is the biggest giveaway to your diet and an increase in sugar will make you more likely to get breakouts.
Don't Pick or Pop!
I know how tempting it is to pick or pop breakouts when they happen but hormonal breakouts are a whole league of their own, don't touch them!
They will show no mercy when it comes to scarring you skin so I recommend sticking an acne patch over them ( Primark K-Pop Acne Patches are AMAZE) and let it ride it's course. If they are painful or becoming noticeable then use a treatment on them to give them a little push to go away. I use the acne patches during the day and the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion at night and that gives them the eviction they need.
Hydration, Hydration, Hydration
The most obvious but most important step of them all is making sure your body and skin are hydrated, I don't just mean water. I mean facial sprays, moisturizer and Conditioner.
I don't know about you but my whole body just shrivels up when I get PMS and everywhere becomes dry. I use the Mario Badescu Rose Water Spray religiously to hydrate and soothe my skin. I also take my period as a reminder to do a hair mask and really amp up the self care. Because you deserve it the most during this time.
Have any hacks or tips on how to survive that time of the month?
