It’s way past day 28 of my cycle. It’s like day 31 of my cycle? As usual, Aunt Red is late. I’ve been suffering from lots of pimples and blackheads for the last few days due to the mad raging hormones. I’m not happy it’s not here! I want my period pronto! (also due to the fact we burn carbs better during our period!)
This is actually the pre-menstrual period, which is basically day 22 – 28 of the cycle. PMS kicks in during this period partly because progesterone continues to dominate the hormone level which is why we suffer from greasier hair and a spotty complexion. For more information about the cycle, do check out the website!
My only remedy so far is to use a mask. My favourite mask would have to be the Kose White Mask (which really is a black mask, I don’t get it why they call it a white mask) which some of my female blogger friends recommended.
So that gets rid of the blackheads but the pimples? Any remedies would you recommend? I read that you could use tea tree oil and I’m thinking of trying it. Natural = good right?
