Menstrual cycle, skin and nutrition

When looking for information for today’s post, I found something that I disliked a bit. Women on average have a 28 day cycle, and men have a 24 hour cycle !!! For this reason, men can eat, move and live the same every day of the month without any problem, while women need different foods and nutrients depending on the phase of the menstrual cycle in which they are!

Okay, I don’t mind xD but it’s unfair. Our hormones fluctuate constantly throughout the month. This affects our mood, skin condition, productivity, sex drive, and energy. The function of the menstrual cycle is to prepare women for pregnancy, even if we do not want to have children, the woman’s body is designed for motherhood. During the first half of the cycle we must be in a dominant estrogen state, and in the second half we must be progesterone dominant.


If these two hormones are out of balance, we can experience irregular cycles. During the first full day of bleeding, the hormones are at their lowest point, so this phase is about nourishing the body, resting and making self-care a priority. Signals that your body gives you when you are not taking care in this phase are:

  • Heavy bleeding and painful
  • clots
  • Sugar cravings
  • Severe fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Headache


it is normal to feel tired at this time, because your body needs rest . Estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone are very low in this phase, which is why you should consume healthy proteins and fats. If the necessary care is not taken, acne breakouts can arise, another sign!

Includes:

  • Avocado
  • Organic red meats
  • Blue fish
  • Nut butter


These foods will help repair the skin barrier and stimulate the production of hormones. In the second stage, estrogen and testosterone are starting to increase, this is when our body is preparing for ovulation. You are likely to feel more energetic and happy.

For this stage, it includes:

  • Eggs
  • Quinoa
  • Chicken
  • Fish
  • Lentils
  • Beans

These foods help regulate blood glucose levels and improve satiety.

 

In phase 3, your hormones are at their highest. Here you will be able to tolerate lighter and raw foods, for example:

  • green leafy vegetables
  • Fruit
  • Juices and vegetable smoothies
  • Sautéed

Remember that not keeping a balance of these things during your menstrual cycle can be detrimental to your health and the health of your skin. I don’t blame you if you hadn’t, I didn’t know either. But now we have no excuse.
