11 Tips To Help Manage Period Breakouts

If you're someone who suffers from breakouts during your period, you know how frustrating and inconvenient it can be, especially during a time when you may already be feeling hormonal and emotional. Not only do you have to deal with the physical discomfort of blemishes, but you may also feel self-conscious and distressed about your appearance. Whether you're dealing with pimples on your face, chest, or back, there is hope. With some simple skincare tips and lifestyle changes, you can manage and even prevent breakouts during your period and enjoy your smooth, beautiful, glowing skin any time of the month. Here's our top eleven tips to help you keep your skin at its best during your menstruation.

Keep your skin clean

During your period, it's important to keep your skin clean to prevent breakouts. Wash your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser, like Joatinga Gentle Cleanser, and warm water, and be sure to remove all makeup before going to bed. Avoid using harsh or drying cleansers, as these can strip your skin of its natural oils and make breakouts worse.

Use acne-fighting products

Look for products that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, which can help to unclog pores and kill acne-causing bacteria. These products are most effective when used consistently and in conjunction with a good skincare routine.

Exfoliate regularly

Exfoliating your skin can help remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, which can prevent breakouts. Look for an exfoliator with gentle ingredients, and use it a few times a week to keep your skin clear. Depil Brazil offers several effective and nourishing exfoliants that work for all skin types.

Avoid touching your face

Your hands can transfer bacteria and oil to your face, which can cause breakouts. Try to avoid touching your face throughout the day, and be sure to wash your hands before applying skincare products or touching your face.

Eat a healthy diet

What you eat can have a big impact on your skin, so it's important to eat a healthy diet during your period. Choose foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals, and avoid sugary and processed foods that can cause inflammation and breakouts.

Get enough sleep

During your period, it’s important to get enough rest to allow your body to repair and regenerate. Aim for at least 7-9 hours of sleep per night to help keep your skin looking its best.

Manage stress

Stress can contribute to breakouts, so it’s important to find ways to manage your stress levels during your period. This may include practicing relaxation techniques such as meditation or deep breathing, or finding healthy ways to cope with stress, such as exercise or talking to a trusted friend or family member.

Drink plenty of water

Staying hydrated is crucial for maintaining healthy skin, so be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. It is recommended that you drink at least eight cups of water, or incorporate water-rich foods like watermelon and cucumber to your meals.

Clean your sheets and pillowcases

It’s a good idea to wash your sheets and pillowcases at least once a week to remove sweat, oil, and bacteria that can build up over time. If you have particularly oily or acne-prone skin, you may want to wash them more frequently. Your bedding can harbor bacteria from your hair and skin that can lead to breakouts.

Avoid picking or squeezing your pimples

It can be tempting to try to squeeze or pick at your pimples, but this can actually make your breakouts worse. Instead, use acne-fighting products and let them work their magic to reduce your breakouts.

Avoid wearing heavy makeup

During your period, it’s a good idea to avoid wearing heavy makeup, as this can further clog your pores and contribute to breakouts. If you do wear makeup, be sure to remove it before bed and use a gentle, non-comedogenic makeup remover. Joatinga Gentle Cleanser can also effectively remove any makeup left behind.

By following these tips, you can help to reduce and prevent breakouts during your period, allowing you to feel confident and comfortable in your own skin. Remember to be patient, as it may take time to see results, but with the right skincare routine and lifestyle habits, you can achieve healthy, clear skin throughout your menstrual cycle. If you have major skin challenges or concerns, it is always a good idea to consult with a dermatologist or skincare expert for relevant, and professional advice on the best products and techniques for your skin type.
