After ovulation, oestrogen decreases while progesterone increases, a hormone that protects assumed pregnancy (yep, even if you’re not pregnant). Dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin drop too. You may have more oily skin which can clog pores and cause breakouts. Just before your period, you may get inflamed red pimples (oh there we go again..).
Skincare tips: Use light, water-based skin care such as face mists, sprays, light tonics and avoid oil-based products that can clog pores. Treat yourself with a purifying face mask!
