How Hormones affects Skin before, during & after your Periods

Your menstrual cycle impacts your overall body in a number of ways. From bloating to sore breasts to mood swings, your body undergoes a roller coaster every month, all thanks to the changing hormones in your body!

And if you think that your hormones show any mercy to your skin, then you already know the answer - they do not! Who are we even kidding? We all have experienced breakouts and have had ‘period pimples’ around the onset of our periods.
Reason?

I got my period
The rollercoasting levels of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone effect your skin during various stages of your menstrual cycle.

Estrogen reaches a high and low point during the cycle which causes changes in the skin impacting its texture. Similarly progesterone closed skin pores and induces sebum buildup under the skin. 

Let’s have a detailed look at the various stages of your menstrual cycle and how does it impact your skin:

1. During menstruation

The levels of estrogen and progesterone are low during the first days of your cycle. This makes your skin dry and dull. The fine lines and wrinkles become even more obvious during this stage. 

2. Follicular Phase

Estrogen starts rising slowly during the first 10-16 days of you menstrual cycle. This is the best time for your skin! It has that ‘glow’ and irritation is less. However, you might feel an emotional uplift during this phase. Testosterone levels also rise during this time and your skin has more natural oils and collagen which enhances the elasticity of your skin. 

3. Ovulation

Ovulation happens around the 14th day of your cycle. Your skin continues to glow and appears to be bright till the time testosterone and estrogen levels begin to decrease. 

4. Luteal phase

You might experience some increased oiliness before or during your period. Some women even experience bloating and swelling throughout their bodies. This happens because of water retention. 

Point being, your skin (just like your body) undergoes through a series of changes during the changing hormones.

However, you actually cannot control this process, but you definitely can make some healthy lifestyle choices to ensure that your hormonal balance is always in place.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
