Your Skin and the menstrual cycle
A Guide to the Effects Your Period Can Have on Your Skin
Just as your mood may fluctuate throughout your menstrual cycle, so too can the look and feel of your skin. No two cycles are the same, so it’s important to listen to your body and learn your own version of normal. With this guide, you’ll find skincare and self-care tips that work with, not against, your body.
Skincare for the Menstrual Phase
Syncing your skincare to your cycle can help keep your complexion steady through the highs and lows of hormonal changes. Here some products with benefits to balance each stage.

Smooth it over

Infused with salicylic acid, the Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask helps take care of blemished skin while you sleep, so you can wake up to clearer-looking skin.
