Why acnes during periods?

            Why acnes during periods?            

It is no exaggeration to say that a woman is affected by hormones throughout her life, including puberty and menstruation, pregnancy and menopause. Endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome can cause problems with hormone secretion over the years. Women have to spend most of their lives in hormonal flurry. It's not an exaggeration at all. And these hormonal changes also affect our skin.

60% of women suffering from acne suffer from acne getting worse a week before menstruation. Estrogen and progesterone levels that go up and down throughout the month drop sharply just before menstruation. At this time, the level of the male hormone androgen increases, which causes the skin to become oilier and the pores are easily clogged. Hormonal altered acne is common, and Hormone-induced acne usually occurs along the chin line, including the central side of the chin.

Hormones are the catalyst, and the pores are responsible for pouring oil there. Androgens send a message to the sebaceous glands to produce sebum. All of the sebaceous glands are located inside the hairy sebaceous glands, and you can think of them as small engines just below each pore. There's sebum and bacteria in that engine. When instructed to produce more sebum, the pores grow and push the excess sebum out. And the sebum that hasn't completely gone out of the pores remains, which leads to acne.



Clean face properly!

It is extremely important to wash face properly in order to prevent acne at the first place. A lot of people do not wash their face properly. If people wash their face by splashing water on their face, there is a high probability that the dirt and sebum remaining on the skin will not be sufficiently removed. Maybe even the face wash won't wash off properly. Finish by gently sweeping down the face, then rinse the chin area once again. Otherwise, a lowered residue will remain, making the acne on the chin area worse. Use a cleansing towel or puff to cleanly remove impurities from your face.
