Glow Up: RedDrop’s Guide to Skincare During Your Period

As you navigate the exciting journey of puberty and periods, taking care of your skin becomes super important – especially when those pesky breakouts pop up during your time of the month. But fear not! We've got all the tips and tricks to help you maintain that radiant glow and feel confident in your skin, even when on your period.


Why Do Breakouts Happen During Your Period?

Ever noticed how your skin can go from smooth as silk to a breakout battleground right around that time of the month? Blame it on hormonal changes! As your body gears up for menstruation, hormone levels fluctuate, particularly estrogen and progesterone. These hormonal shifts can lead to increased oil production, clogged pores, and – you guessed it – breakouts.


Skincare Tips for a Flawless Glow:

  1. Keep It Clean: Start and end your day with a gentle cleanser to wash away dirt, oil, and impurities. Look for products with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to help fight acne-causing bacteria. Consider using the Twiish Peach Clean Gel Cleanser which features gentle ingredients for young skin.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Hydration is key to maintaining a clear complexion and reducing inflammation.
  3. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize: Even if you have oily skin, moisturizing is a must! Opt for oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizers to keep your skin hydrated without clogging pores.
  4. Banish Breakouts with Spot Treatments: For those stubborn pimples that just won't quit, spot treatments like Twiish Zit Ain’t Cute can help speed up the healing process and reduce redness.
  5. Don't Forget the Sunscreen: Protect your skin from harmful UV rays by wearing sunscreen every day, even when it's cloudy outside. Choose a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher and reapply every two hours.
  6. Hands Off!: Resist the urge to pick or pop your pimples! Picking can lead to scarring and further inflammation, making breakouts worse in the long run.
  7. Healthy Habits: Maintain a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to support overall skin health. Limit sugary snacks and greasy foods, as they can exacerbate breakouts.
  8. Manage Stress: Stress can wreak havoc on your skin, so take time to relax and unwind. Practice stress-relief techniques like deep breathing, yoga, or meditation to keep your skin happy and healthy.


Remember: You're Beautiful Inside and Out!

While skincare is important, it's equally important to embrace your unique beauty and always celebrate yourself. So whether your skin is flawless or you’re dealing with a few pesky pimples, always remember that you're beautiful just the way you are – period.

Here's to glowing skin and unstoppable confidence, even on your period! 💖✨
