Help- Save me from the ‘monthly’ breakout- DIY at home facial

You know what I am talking about when it’s almost that time of month and your skin has gone from being calm and clear to “spots gone wild”. Don’t worry you are not alone! I too have the same issue and that is why I decided to tell you about a my DIY at home facial  which has really worked for me.
Here are the products i used mostly from the pharmacy ( drug store)

     1.Firstly wet a muslin cloth in warm water ( I like the Eve Lom muslin cloths because they are very gentle ) and hold it over your face for 20 seconds and repeat 3 times. The steam from the hot washcloth will open up your pores and prepare your skin for the next step.
      2.Apply an oil free cleanser; Neutrogena and Cetaphil have a  good  selection of non-comedogenic cleansers.
     3.Use a muslin clothing (exfoliating cloth) while the cleanser is still on your face and gently exfoliate the entire face (be careful around your eyes).
     4. Apply a face mask that is for clearing skin and extracting excess oils. I have been using Formula 10.0.06’s Three Times Sublime 3 in 1 Blackhead cleanser and mask, leave on for the directed time. (if you have dry skin use a mask for dry skin instead). Then rinse
     5.Apply a nourishing moisturiser – I like QV’s nurturing night cream. Now your skin is prepared for the battle ahead with fighting those breakouts.
