FOL­LIC­U­LAR PHASE

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Glow -

Hor­mone lev­els start off low, but start to rise slowly (specif­i­cally oe­stro­gen) as your body be­gins to ma­ture fol­li­cles in the ovaries.

At this point, your skin will feel less sen­si­tive, red or re­ac­tive. “Now is the time to use more in­tense treat­ments and ac­tive prod­ucts,” ex­plains Vitti. Try a DIY fa­cial with Sand & Sky Bril­liant Skin De­tox­ify + Brighten Pu­ri­fy­ing Pink Clay Mask (its nat­u­ral acids resur­face skin). Fol­low it up with Al­genist’s Ge­nius Liquid Col­la­gen super-plump­ing serum (ac­tive col­la­gen wa­ter soft­ens lines and firms). It’s also the best time for a wax: re­search shows that as oe­stro­gen lev­els rise, so does pain tol­er­ance.
