經期皮膚的 Pretti5 小貼士:從油性皮膚到荷爾蒙性痤瘡

這是 time of the month again: your stomach is bloating, your emotions are swinging wildly—and to top it off, there’s a small colony of zits forming on your face.

For many women, menstrual periods are an inevitable fact of life. But when the cramps hit and you’re craving another chocolate muffin, it can be hard to manage erratic period skin. Here are our top tips for PMS skincare to keep your skin glowing all month long.

煥光柔膚精華水

Facial skin is incredibly sensitive to hormonal fluctuations, or changes in hormone levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. But while these changes are a natural part of our menstrual cycles, they can lead to ultra-greasy skin that traps dirt and bacteria.

平衡是關鍵

Removing dirt without overstripping your skin will prevent oil overproduction. Our 煥光水潤潔面乳 contains hydrating rosehip oil, while goldflower root extract in the 煥光柔膚精華水 protects against dirt and pollution.

 

問題的根源

Pesky pimples can pop up from time to time, but deep-rooted cystic acne is a different story. When dirt and dead skin cells build up, they can clog hair follicles and cause painful bumps under the skin that flare at that time of the month.

Prevention is the best remedy

Cystic acne is notoriously hard to get rid of. Nip it in the bud with the 雙重透明質酸抗氧化精華煥光修護精華油: licorice root extract fights inflammation, while squalane penetrates deep into the skin to balance oil levels.

 

In the face of fatigue

$ 820

Period fatigue is real: just as we’re more easily tired when Aunt Flo pays a visit, our skin also needs a little TLC. Stress hormones released during your cycle affect skin cell regeneration, leading to a dull, uneven skin tone. Age may be just a number, but aging skin isn’t a good look on anyone.

Catch some Z's

Re-energize period skin with an at-home spa treatment! The 煥光水潤睡眠修護面膜 combines science and TCM wisdom: vitamin B12 strengthens skin capillaries, while chamomile extract soothes irritation. Best paired with a relaxing bedtime routine and 6-8 hours of beauty sleep—though in a pinch, a 10-minute mask will also revive your glow!
