Every 28 days or so, we girls have to go through hell and back: stomach pain, backache, bloating, boob pain, bad moods, fatigue and bathroom issues are just a few of the delightful things many of us will experience on a monthly basis.
Another unfortunate side effect of this influx of hormones is skin pimples, which seem to pop up overnight just about anywhere on our bodies. One of the most annoying, and frankly embarrassing, places where pimples appear is on our butts – not ideal, especially in summer when you can’t wait to try out that new bikini.
So, why do periods cause skin breakouts, and how can you best treat butt pimples and get that peachy behind you’ve been dreaming of?
Why Periods Give You Pimples
During her monthly menstrual cycle, a woman’s body goes through a lot of changes. During the cycle, which lasts on average 28 days, the levels of highly influential hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone will fluctuate, resulting in a range of different effects on your body. The most common things affected include your mood, energy levels, libido, food cravings and overall health.
One of the most annoying effects of these fluctuations is on your skin, with many women experiencing breakouts on a monthly basis. This happens as a result of hormones stimulating your body to produce more sebum. Breakouts around your butt are most commonly caused when the hair follicles become inflamed – combined with the added changes from your period, it’s no wonder your butt area can be one of the main places on your body to suffer from spots.
