Menstruation Can Sometimes Cause Temporary Flare Ups

Hormonal shifts can affect women’s skin in many ways. One example is the mid-cycle increased production of progesterone, which results in a rise in sebum (natural and oily skin lubricant) production. In addition to this, increased testosterone levels during menstruation can further activate the sebaceous glands, creating even more sebum.

 

While sebum gives some women a healthy glow, in others it can create an environment for bacterium (called P. acnes) to flourish. This double-increase in sebum can lead to breakouts and inflammation during women’s periods.
