Why Do We Get Period acne?
Do you have annoying breakouts around your time of the month? We all know how annoying that can be! There is a reason behind why it happens and how you may be able to help control it.
Why do I break out around my period?
Estrogen and progesterone levels fall right before your period. Sebum, an oily fluid that lubricates your skin, may be secreted in greater amounts as a result. Too much might cause breakouts and blocked pores. Hormones can also stimulate the development of acne-causing bacteria and skin irritation.
How can I prevent acne during my period?
According to flo.health, acne can be managed by eating a balanced diet and keeping a healthy weight before your period. Try consuming a lot of foods high in zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, and vitamins A and E while maintaining a low glycemic index diet. Seafood, cheese, almonds, and spinach all contain them.
How long does period acne typically last?
Premenstrual outbreaks are common in those who have acne. Before the period's beginning, acne typically appears and lasts for around 10 days. Once the period begins, the acne normally goes away.
