Skin Cycling: How do I care for my skin in line with the female cycle?

Skin Cycling: Wie pflege ich meine Haut im Einklang mit dem weiblichen Zyklus?

We think it's great that you're interested in skincare that's in tune with your menstrual cycle, as it has many benefits for women:

  1. Better Skin Health: By aligning your skincare routine with your menstrual cycle, you can meet your skin's needs at every stage. This can lead to better overall skin health.

  2. More Even Complexion: You can achieve a more even complexion by using products specifically tailored to your skin's needs at each stage of the cycle.

  3. Reducing Skin Issues: By using the right products and routines to respond to your skin's needs at each stage, you can reduce skin issues like acne, dryness, or oiliness.

  4. Less Sensitivity: Skin may be more sensitive at some stages of the cycle than others. By using products tailored to your skin's specific needs at each stage, you can reduce sensitivity.

  5. Reducing Stress and Tension: By tuning in to and responding to your skin's needs at each stage of the cycle, you can promote a sense of relaxation and well-being.


Which skincare active ingredients are suitable for which phase of the cycle?

We have developed a cyclic skin cleansing, adapted to the female cycle and want to give you further tips on suitable follow-up products and natural active ingredients for each of your four cycle phases.

Menstruation: In this phase we recommend a gentle cleansing with Guayaba & Maiz and then a toner, serum and moisturizer with soothing ingredients such as Tepezcohuite, Aloe Vera or Agave.
ℹ️It is important that your skin, in this phase, is supplied with an extra portion of moisture and your skin barrier is strengthened.

follicular phase:
Bugambilia as a cleanse is a good choice for this phase. A suitable serum with natural antioxidants such as vitamin C or vitamin E can also help protect and nourish your skin.
ℹ️ Your skin is naturally more balanced in this phase, use products to support it.

A light, natural scrub like our Tepezcohuite Scrub can help remove dead skin cells. A serum with hyaluronic acid moisturizes and balances your skin.

Luteal phase: A gentle peeling with Nopal Negro and a natural detox now has a clarifying effect to prevent pimples. Other natural ingredients that are available in this phase are tea tree oil or salicylic acid, which reduce calluses and impurities.
ℹ️ Your skin is particularly sensitive and impure in this phase, use products that minimize cornification and inflammation.

We hope that we were able to provide important information about your cyclical skin care with this overview. Let us know if there is anything else we can do for you or drop by our skin consultation.
