Like Chrissy Teigen has cleverly noted, period skin is the absolute worst, as hormonal breakouts and blemishes can leave your skin looking less than perfect. But before you throw in the towel, know that there are ways to salvage your skin before things get out of hand. Anti-inflammatory beauty buys (think serums, creams, and masks) that detoxify your pores are crucial to getting your skin back on track, as they can tame any breakouts and blemishes before they take over your complexion.
