Skin becomes Sensitive
During menstruation, your skin’s pH changes and increases sebum production. Thus, pores are occluded, leading to an increased abundance of blackheads and pimples. Since my daughter has sensitive skin, the problem becomes much more acute, as her skin becomes irritated and blemished. She must use a hypoallergenic cleanser rich in anti-inflammatory substances and avoid aggressive soap.
The increase in sebum production also has consequences on hair, because fat is deposited on the capillary stem, making it opaque and heavy. You may increase washing during this time, but make sure you choose a more delicate shampoo, and a shampoo oil that helps regulate natural fat production, which protects the hair by keeping it light and shiny.
Legs and Ankles
When my daughter gets her period, her legs and ankles often swell, tend to get tired, and sometimes even hurt. This occurs due to water retention caused by her period. To drain fluids, use a gentle foot bath with a handful of heavy salt, and massage your legs from top to bottom with a refreshing gel that contains plankton and pineapple.
Bags and Dark Circles under your Eyes
Our monthly routine consists of a scream, some few choice words and desperation over period scream number 2: waking up with dark circles and bags under your eyes.
To soften the dark circles, use cold chamomile packs under your eyes. To eliminate the stagnation of the fluids causing the bags, apply a specific cream to stimulate the lymphatic drainage technique. Using your middle and index finger, apply from the inner corner of the eye to the outer eye.
Scream number 3 is usually accompanied by, “Mooooooooooooooooom, I’m so fat!”
Fat cells are very sensitive to hormones. In particular, getting your period causes a swelling of the tissues that worsens cellulite and water retention. Make sure you drink more than usual, perhaps an infusion of orange or melissa flowers to reduce water retention.
Scream Number 1
My daughter’s first I-have-my-period scream is either directly related to her bleeding all over her bed, or the fact that the pads are not within her reach from her position on the toilet. We only use Organyc® 100% pure, authentic organic cotton feminine care products in this house, because they are guaranteed to protect and respect sensitive skin.
Unlike the other feminine care brands, only Organyc is made with 100% pure, gentle organic cotton bleached in hydrogen peroxide, a naturally occurring disinfectant. They do not contain synthetics, SAPs or wood pulp like ordinary products.
Why Organic Cotton is the Purest, Best Cotton
Unlike most other nationally advertised brands of pads, liners and tampons made of synthetics, like rayon and cellulose (wood pulp), Organyc has created a line of feminine care products using only the finest organic cotton.
- Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment.
- Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, therefore organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic, persistent pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.
- Third-party certification organizations attentively regulate organic production.
- Federal regulations prohibit the use of genetically engineered seed for organic farming.
- All cotton sold as organic in the United States must meet strict federal guidelines that regulate how the cotton is grown.
Another advantage of pure 100% organic cotton is that Organyc products are skin pH compatible, so they are an excellent solution for women with sensitive skin to help avoid allergic reaction and skin irritation.
They are also clinically and dermatologically tested and have been shown to be effective for avoiding skin irritation.
Since Organyc is made entirely of soft, comfortable organic cotton, everything that touches your sensitive skin is, of course, also organic cotton (the finest type). Organyc brand 100% organic cotton feminine products are breathable, biodegradable, perfume-free and plastic-free.
Mother Nature has the most brilliant collection of magic markers, and she colored organic Cotton white. Choose authentic, all natural and only the best for your body.
