If there is something that affects and worries most of the celebrities that we interview each month in People en español, it is the pimples or acne that appear to many during the period. We turned to our expert skin collaborator, Dr. Campos, who has also treated the skin of many of them, to explain why this happens and what ingredients and type of products you should use to solve the problem.
The key to keeping the matter at bay? Just as your hormone levels change throughout the 28 days that your menstrual cycle lasts, your skincare routine also has to change on those days, according to the expert.
"Use products with alpha hydroxides, which are products with a high content of salicylic acid or glycolic acid during the week prior to the period," he recommends for those days when estrogen levels drop and testosterone and progesterone levels rise, which can make you notice more oily skin and blocked pores.
During the days of the period, however, focus on soothing products formulated with water to treat the most sensitive and dry skin.
And at the end of the cycle, in the week after the period Dr. Campos suggests retinol treatments at night to treat the scars of the outbreak that you may have had on those days and vitamin C during the day that hydrates and highlights the natural glow of the skin.
