Self care is necessary care, let's help you care for your skin

Menstrual Cycle and Our Skin

There's no doubt the menstrual cycle affects our skin in many ways. Our hormones contributes to us getting oily skin, acne, dry skin, excessive sweating and many others. Today, let's explore the world of how our menses can affect the health of our skin.


Having acne is one of the common skin care issues which arise during the time of the month. This usually happens days before the actual menses and sometimes lasts a few days after. During those days, be particularly gentle on your face and avoid popping the pimples. You'll end up leaving black spots on your face if you keep popping them. Use Kaydua's Facial Cleanser and Facial Moisturizer every morning and evening and avoid touching your face too much. 

Excessive Sweating

Some people are likely to suffer from excessive sweating. Hormonal changes might exacerbate the issue. As much as possible, wear light cotton clothes and keep facial wipes in handy. Dab any excess sweat on your body from time to time as well.

Dry Skin

On the flip side, others experience very dry skin. This usually occurs when oestrogen levels are low. If you do have dry and sensitive skin during this period, do well to moisturize day and night with a Moisturizing Body Lotion. You might also opt for the Shea Body Oil for an all-day supple look. 

When it comes to skin care, being consistent always works. Don't neglect your skin during the entire month. Be consistent with your routine and it'll definitely pay off. In case of further skin consultation, please do not hesitate to contact us on Facebook or Instagram or via +233 596 050 073.
