Cycle Syncing Skincare: Our Periodic Serums.
The hormonal variations that occur during the menstrual cycle have a direct impact on the skin. This requires a cycle syncing skincare routine. At Typology, we have developed four serums to meet the needs of the skin during each week of the menstrual cycle. So, what is a periodic serum? Here are the answers.
Typology’s Cycle Syncing Serum Line Called “Woman”.
At Typology, we have designed and launched a cycle syncing product line based on the menstrual cycle, called “Woman". It consists of four serums, one for each week, addressing the different skin issues that women experience during their menstrual cycle. Here are the details of the different phases of skin care:
Moisturizing and soothing serum during the 1st week:
The condition of the skin varies according to the menstrual cycle. During the first phase, which begins on the first day of the period, hormones are at their lowest level, which increases the sensitivity of the skin. It is prone to inflammation and pimples may appear. It is important to apply a moisturizer during this period to help the skin stay supple. Typology's Serum 1 addresses this need by moisturizing and soothing the skin. It is applied for 7 days as part of the daily skin care routine. It contains hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, cornflower floral water and bisabolol.
Suppleness and radiance serum for the 2nd week:
The rate of estrogen production gradually increases to reach its peak during ovulation. At this time, the skin still lacks radiance and can look tired. Typology's Serum 2 is enriched with vitamin C and fruit acids to provide suppleness and restore radiance to the skin. The vitamin C plays a role of protection to the skin. In synergy with the vitamin E, it fights against the free radicals. It also helps to boost the production of elastin and collagen fibers while brightening the complexion by acting on excess melanin.
Moisturizing and purifying serum in the 3rd week:
During this phase, estrogen levels begin to drop and are replaced by progesterone. Progesterone stimulates sebum production and makes the skin oily and shiny. The care to be brought must thus help to eliminate the excess of sebum and to purify the skin. Enriched with wheat extract and ginger, Typology's Serum 3 is both moisturizing and astringent. Ginger has cleansing, exfoliating and antioxidant properties. It helps remove excess oil and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. The wheat extract nourishes and protects the skin.
Matifying and anti-imperfection serum for the 4th week:
During this phase of skin care, before the start of a new cycle, the estrogen level continues to decrease, the sebaceous glands produce more sebum. This period is conducive to the appearance of imperfections, such as blackheads, dilated and clogged pores, acne or shiny skin. It is necessary to remedy them by using an exfoliating care. Typology's Serum 4 is enriched with seaweed extract and zinc. The latter is known for its antioxidant, healing and exfoliating properties. Ally of the fatty skins, zinc regulates the excess of sebum and unclogs the blocked pores. This serum helps fight against imperfections and acne before the period. This cycle syncing serum promotes healing and mattifies the skin.
Cycle: How to use our set of serums adapted to your period.
Each serum has been designed to be used for 7 days. This skin care line was developed to evolve according to hormones and thus avoid all the inconveniences that a woman's skin can encounter during this period: imperfections, dehydration, lack of radiance... The skin is more balanced, more hydrated, more supple and more comfortable. Even if the range has been designed for one serum per week, it is important to take into consideration the needs of your skin and adapt your skin care routine to this effect.
Every morning, on clean, dry skin and under your moisturizer, apply the equivalent of a pipette to the entire face and neck. Small precision: the serum 2 is to be used only in the evening. Indeed, its formula is photosensitizing with the presence of fruit acids with exfoliating properties. The next day, don't forget to protect your skin with a sun cream adapted to your skin typology during the period of use.
