Survival guide: PMS Ruin your life?!

I have really been struggling lately with my skin, a week before I’m due on my period (I know this is very common) but I mean its all around my chin & upper lip, they swell & hurt so much. I have a few products & tips that help me through this so thought I’d share with you all..

Of course It will be no surprise to you all, the top one is GlamGlow Super Mud, I will just touch on this as there are various posts here. This stuff calms everything down, I put it on the effected areas; on my chin & leave it there for 15 minutes & wash it off with warm water. It leaves your skin feeling fresh & the redness goes down.

What I’m meant to say is don’t put makeup on the effected areas, but we all know SLAP IT ON.. I use double wear when my skin is playing up & it works wonders, just make sure you powder & conceal, I use collection 2000. The only down side is that it doesn’t get rid of swollen/abscess like spots (OBVS) so you just look like you have lumps all over your face…


I tend to take more vitamins, try to up my mood a little bit more or I am just a constant moody bitch! DRINK DRINK & DRINK, I’m awful at drinking when I’m at home but at work I’m so good, I drink loads, but try to drink a lot more when I’m due on.

EAT – Again I’m meant to say don’t over eat, eat ‘healthy’. But doesn’t a Mcdonalds/Chocolate sound & taste so good! I say, whatever makes you happy!

Last but not least sleep, I get into bed by 9 & sleep until 6. So I’d say a good 9 hours is perf.

What’s your best tip to get through PMS?!

    Nice post! Sometimes I like to have a pamper night to make myself feel better, become more presentable for going out in public and be less grumpy 🙂 Nails, hair mask and face mask = feel better.

    Nettle tea tends to get rid of cramps.

    As the only guy writing a comment I feel your pain. I have lived with a few women and coached teams. The teams would, as women or girls that are close would have sympathetic period timing. So I would almost lose them for a week. But I had to condition them physically and had to look things up as per similar posts online and give them help. Though, they would be a mess during training, at least after or before they were fine. Light workouts, oddly enough before and during can help allow endorphins to flow elsewhere and reduce pain and discomfort. The outer part they unfortunately had to deal with at long track meets and they had to be prepared to run no matter what. I was always sympathetic.

    I never used to have break outs, mood swings or even period pains. But recently all that started and let me just say it is so nice to know I’m not alone! Thanks for the tips girl x
