Actress Kate Winslet said Allure changes her foundation tone according to where she is in her menstrual cycle.
Why inflammation during your period can change the tone and color of your skin, Winslet likes to keep different foundation shades on hand to pass between her menstrual cycle.
“At the beginning of my cycle, my skin it’s much more equal, “explains Winslet, 45.” In the middle of my cycle, everything lights up a bit, so I mix a couple of tones. “
The middle of the cycle is marked by when your body is ovulating, a process that usually takes two weeks before the start of your period and lasts 24 hours.
