How To Avoid Period-related Acne

Premenstrual acne happens due to the hormonal changes taking place during the entire month. These changes cause the oil secretion to increase just prior to menstruation. This kind of acne flare-ups begin 7-10 days before menstruation and eases out with the onset of the cycle. Women do not seem to outgrow premenstrual acne, and it typically does not lessen on its own. However, prevention is the key.

Key pointers for preventing acne:

  1. Follow a good skin care routine.
  2. Use a clay mask twice weekly 7-10 days prior to menstruation as this will help control the break-outs.
  3. Use a medicated soap during bathing to control acne over the body areas.
  4. Avoid oil massages during this period.
  5. Go for an in-clinic oil control treatment that helps regulate the sebaceous glands seven days prior to menstruation.
  6. Eat a well-balanced diet rich in omega-3 that helps reduce these flare-ups.
  7. If the flare-ups are very bad, consult your doctor/cosmetologist who may prescribe another medication to control this problem.
