Acne breakouts before periods, also known as premenstrual acne, are a common occurrence for many women. Hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle can cause an increase in oil production in the skin, leading to clogged pores and the development of pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads.




Here are some factors that may contribute to premenstrual acne:


Hormonal changes:

The fluctuations in hormones during the menstrual cycle, particularly an increase in androgens (male hormones) can cause an increase in oil production and lead to acne breakouts.



Stress can also trigger acne breakouts before periods, as it can disrupt the balance of hormones in the body.



Eating a diet high in sugar and dairy products has been linked to an increase in acne breakouts.


Skincare products:

Using skincare products that are too harsh or not suited to your skin type can clog pores and trigger acne breakouts.  


To help prevent premenstrual acne, here are some tips you may find helpful:



Maintain a healthy diet:

Eating a diet that is rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein can help reduce the risk of premenstrual acne.


Reduce stress:

Incorporating stress-reducing activities, such as yoga, meditation, or exercise into your routine can help reduce the risk of premenstrual acne.


Use gentle skincare products:

Look for skincare products that are non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and gentle on the skin, and avoid products that are too harsh or abrasive.


Keep your skin clean:

Wash your face twice daily with a gentle cleanser, and be sure to remove all makeup before bed to help prevent clogged pores.  


If you have persistent or severe premenstrual acne, it’s best to see a dermatologist at vitals skin and hair klinic in Bangalore for a proper evaluation and personalized treatment plan. They can help determine the underlying cause of your acne and recommend appropriate treatments, such as topical or oral medications, to help control and reduce breakouts.
