Is Your Skin Dry During your Period? Here’s Why.
The hormonal changes our body goes through during our menstrual cycle can affect our skin in a number of ways. In the first week, as estrogen and progesterone levels decrease, testosterone levels surge. This fluctuation affects our skin’s ability to retain moisture, resulting in our skin becoming dry and dull. This can also lead to our skin feeling sensitive and easily irritated.
A daily routine that includes hydrating & exfoliating acids such as Glycolic, Hyaluronic acids and Vitamin C are vital in brightening your skin, refining its texture & reducing dryness.
Below is a 4-step routine that you can follow to revitalise your skin:
Step 1 - Hyaluronic Fix Extreme4 Cleansing Cream
Gentle and fragrance free, this cleanser will remove daily impurities without leaving your skin feeling stripped or dry. The unique thirst-quenching formula of two types of molecular weight hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid and natural tremella will leave skin clean, hydrated and refreshed.
Start your routine by massaging onto damp skin daily, both morning and evening, to keep skin nourished and soothed.
Step 2 – Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads
Pre-soaked in glycolic acid, the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads will help to resurface the skin's texture & reveal a more refined complexion. Combining hyaluronic acid & blue daisy in its formula, these pads will help even your complexion while keeping it hydrated.
After cleansing, gently wipe the pad across the face and neck, to soothe and tone uneven skin. Use once daily, morning or evening.
Step 3 - Hyaluronic Fix Extreme4 Serum
Bring dehydrated skin back to life with our lightweight Hyaluronic Fix Extreme4 Serum. Clinically proven to deliver a 150% increase in instant hydration upon application*, it instantly replenishes and conditions the skin. We’ve used two different weights of hyaluronic acid to ensure all layers of the skin get that much-needed hydration hit, and our new hero ingredient polyglutamic acid not only holds four times the amount of water as hyaluronic acid, but also locks moisture in for longer. The fourth key ingredient Tremella gives an added moisture shot.
Apply this serum daily before your moisturiser, to provide an instant boost of hydration in this drying phase.
*Clinical trial carried out on 21 participants over 28 days.
Step 4 - Nourishing SPF 30 Moisturiser
SPF is essential, they key is finding one you love to use. Formulated specifically for dry, sensitive, dehydrated skin, this unique product delivers a boost of hydration, so you can achieve the ultimate dewy, hydrated look while protecting your skin from UVA and UVB rays.
This Nourishing SPF 30 Moisturiser is non-comedogenic so it won't clog pores, making it the perfect last step in your Nip + Fab morning skincare routine.
