Dry Skin During Your Period? Here’s Why
As a young adult, or tween who’s inexperienced with period health, a lot of factors come into play. Not only are you getting used to your wellness routine, you’re also combatting major hormonal issues with your skin. YELLE is here to help you navigate through some of those things.
Is Your Skin Dry During Your Period? Here’s Why.
The hormonal changes our body goes through during our menstrual cycle can affect our skin in a number of ways. In the first week, as estrogen and progesterone levels decrease, testosterone levels surge. This fluctuation affects our skin’s ability to retain moisture, resulting in our skin becoming dry and dull. This can also lead to our skin feeling sensitive and easily irritated.
A daily routine that includes hydrating & exfoliating acids such Vitamin C are vital in brightening your skin, refining its texture & reducing dryness.
Below is a 4-step routine that you can follow to revitalize your skin:
