Post Does anyone get acne AFTER a period, rather than before/during?

It seems that once the period is just ending, bam some bumps randomly appear.

Another question for people with mild/ the heck are you supposed to know if it is your cleanser doing the harm? I have been using it for about 3 months and then very seldomly 3 annoying ugly pimples come at once. The rest of the time it is clear.

When I put mint julep mask on a spot for a few nights, one morning when I washed it off it turned into a dry patch of skin flaking away, lighter skin there too. beware!

normal to get acne after your period...the hormones just go crazy during that time of month, so its normal to get them before, during, or after.

if you want to know if your cleanser is doing harm, you have to switch cleansers. the breakouts you are describing may be normal breakouts, not necessarily in response to cleansers or other factors.
