How can I avoid breakouts before my period?

So I get awful breakouts on my skin just before my period. Is there anything I can do to help with this?

So, a certain amount is hormonal so you're still going to get these breakouts, but we can reduce how much they affect you so and how severe they are.

I would recommend something like a salicylic acid face wash, you need it in the correct percentage and ideally that it's not mixed with anything else to make sure that it's doing the job it needs to and I wouldn't recommend this for sensitive skin.

You can also use an exfoliating toner, so an acid toner that will just help remove any of the excess oils, which will stop your pores becoming too plugged and will prevent any future breakouts for the whole month.
