Get To Know Your Skin Cycle - Foreo

Hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle can cause many changes to the skin; acne, breakouts, and dry skin depending on the time of the month. Renown for their inventive design in skincare technology, we’ve got award winning Swedish self care brand FOREO’s best products for maintaining glowing skin throughout all stages of your cycle. 

image001.jpeg

 Your skin can change depending on what stage you’re at in the 28-day menstrual cycle, from greasy/acne-prone, to dry and normal, so it’s very important to treat your skin accordingly. Developing your very own ‘skin cycle’ could be the first step in identifying what you can do to keep it refreshed and glowing no matter what time.

TIPS FOR DEVELOPING YOUR VERY OWN SKIN CYCLE

 

STAGE 1: The Menstrual Phase (Day 1 to Day 5)

On the first day of your period, you are already in more vulnerable to breakouts. The excess oestrogen starts to dominate triggering skin inflammation, while extra testosterone tends to lead to the production of more oil.

With this in mind it’s important to cleanse effectively. Try the LUNA mini 2 device which can remove 99.5% of dirt and sebum at night and in the morning with a gentle exfoliation also. 

 

STAGE 2: The Follicular Phase (Day 5 to Day 15)

Midway through your cycle, skin tends to become dry due to dropping estrogen levels. The focus in this stage is keeping your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water and regular cleansing. Hydrating masks and products that not only pamper the skin but to protect and repair the skin’s barrier are helpful here. Try FOREO’s UFO treatment (the world’s first smart masking device and masks) paired with the H2Overdose UFO Advanced Collection Mask for ultimate skincare hydration.

 

STAGE 3:  The Luteal Phase (Day 15 to Day 28)*

In the last stage of your cycle, the skin will start to get its glow back and the blood circulation will increase thanks to estrogen levels climbing again, allowing your skincare product ingredients to absorb much easier during this stage of the ‘skin cycle’. With this in mind, try the NEW FOREO Micro-foam cleanser, containing amino acids and vitamin E which support the immune system (perfect when feeling run down) and boost cell function, a perfect choice when looking for a deep cleanse but full of ingredients that will absorb well into the skin in this stage.

Every woman's cycle is different and the most important thing is to know what your body and skin need. During your period, skin experiences conditions of excess oil, dryness, depending on individuals’ hormones. Being aware of your skin type and tailoring your skincare cleansing regime accordingly are key factors to glowing skin.

The LUNA 2 smooths the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles and leaves skin looking firmer. What’s more, the ultra-hygienic silicone design is quick drying and nonporous to prevent bacteria build-up. The result is a cleanse that is 35X more hygienic than that with nylon-bristled brushes.

No7 Launches New Beauty Serum Alongside Ambassador Claudia Winkleman.

“A brave woman is a beautiful woman.” Wise words from Comedian Shazia Mirza during the live panel discussion at No7’s Pop Up Skin Clinic in Covent Garden yesterday. The event marked the launch of the brand’s latest additions to the laboratories range, with recently unveiled ambassador Claudia Winkleman in attendance. With a waiting list of 37,000 in just 13 days for these two new products, the No7 Laboratories FIRMING Booster Serum RRP £38 and No7 Laboratories DARK SPOT CORRECTING Booster Serum RRP £38, Dr Mike Bell, No7’s Scientific Skincare advisor was on hand to offer an insight into why these serums are the ‘must have’ beauty products of the moment.

Dr Mike Bell, No7 Skincare Scientific Advisor said: 

“Research shows that Gen X women are confident  and embracing their beauty. Our definition of beauty changes as we get older – what was considered beautiful in our 20s may not be the same as our 40s and our research shows these women are increasingly looking for non-invasive treatments that provide exceptional results.  

In fact the launch of our first No7 Laboratories product, No7 Laboratories Line Correcting Booster Serum, has shown that for women that had already had Botox, 80% of them said the serum gave them better results than they thought possible from skincare and 73% said they would delay their next treatment after trialling the product for 2 months.

With the launch of our TWO NEW fast-acting specialist products we’re answering even more of women’s top beauty concerns allowing women to  visibly transform skin’s appearance, giving them their skin clinic at home.”

No7 has conducted a survey of 2,000 Gen X women to look at how they define beauty for their generation in conjunction with the launch of the two new No7 Laboratories products. They discovered that over half of women would consider using a targeted at-home skin care product first, before considering a clinical treatment. More specifically, 43% of women polled would consider using a product with similar results to fillers and skin peels.  

The survey also revealed that 70% of the Gen X women polled felt women in their 40s and 50s have been overlooked for too long and nearly 50% think society believes there is no future for women beyond middle age.

However, over 1/3 of Gen X women polled said they celebrate their individuality as they get older and are less concerned about looking like others, whilst over 65% agree that women who embrace their appearance appear more beautiful.

Who are the Gen X women? Aged between 39 & 55, they’re the ones who followed the baby boomers and preceded the millennials. The ones who’d felt invisible in society. The practical, resourceful, adaptable and self-managing women. The ones looking to have their voices heard and their stories told and thankfully with the rise of social media are creating their own media to lead the conversations themselves and with key figures in the beauty industry such as Nadine Baggott setting up their own Youtube Channels, they’re the women who can no longer be ignored. It therefore seems fitting that No7 have chosen Claudia Winkleman a women in her late 40’s and the face of one of the nations most successful TV shows as its newest brand ambassador.
