5 Skincare Tips during an Endometriosis Flare-Ups

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, causing inflammation and often significant pain. The hormonal fluctuations associated with endometriosis can exacerbate skin issues.

Here are some tips to help manage your skin during an endometriosis flare-up:

  1. Use Skincare made with Anti-inflammatory Ingredients:

    • Look for skincare products that contain anti-inflammatory ingredients such as green tea extract, aloe vera, chamomile, and niacinamide. Of course we are biased, but our luxury botanical Cream 02: Vitamin C + Niacinamide is formulated with these certified organic and anti-inflammatory ingredients. 

  2. Avoid Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs): 

    • Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) can interfere with hormonal balance and are found in a variety of products, from plastics and cosmetics to food packaging and pesticides. Read our guide on how to avoid EDCs here. 

  3. Be Gentle:

    • Use a gentle, non-foaming cleanser to avoid stripping the skin of its natural oils, which can increase irritation and dryness. 

  4. Hydrate and Protect:

  5. Avoid Irritants:

    • Avoid any personal care, skincare or cleaning products with alcohol, fragrances, or other ingredients that may irritate your skin, especially during flare-ups. Be sure to read every ingredient on your products. 

It's crucial to coordinate with both your gynecologist and dermatologist since they can provide a treatment plan that considers both your endometriosis and skin health. This holistic approach ensures that one condition is not treated at the expense of another.
