The Nip + Fab team recommends their favourite hydrating & plumping products
People often talk about experiencing oily skin and breakouts around the time of their period. This is a common symptom of PMS and tends to occur in the second half of your cycle when your body starts to produce more progesterone. Progesterone causes the production of oil that acts as a natural lubricant for our skin – but also clogs up pores and leads to classic “period skin”. Our activated charcoal face mask was developed to soak up that excess oil and keep your skin clear.
However, this isn’t the only issue that our cycle can throw at our skin. When our period arrives – that’s day one of our cycle – our skin can often feel dry and dull-looking, and lines or wrinkles can appear more obvious. This is because, at this point in your cycle, both sex hormones, progesterone, and estrogen are low. Estrogen spurs the production of collagen, elastin & hyaluronic acid within the body – all the good stuff that makes our skin feel plumped and glowing.
