Knours is Science: Knours. know your skin period
Knours science is largely based on the impact the endocrine system has on women’s aging process. This system is what produces and regulates hormones produced in ovaries, adrenal glands and thyroid glands, which act as chemical messengers in many of the body’s essential functions, such as growth and immunity.
We all know that that external factors like exposure to sun and pollution speed up the aging process. And now, the scientific community is studying how hormonal changes impact skin health. For example, estrogens can increase hyaluronic acid in our body to maintain skin’s healthy fluid balance and structural integrity and testosterones are primarily responsible for thicker and oilier skin, as well as signs of skin aging. Knours’ is incorporating this knowledge into your daily skin care routine.
Knours can help balance your skin throughout the inevitable hormonal fluctuations life brings at each phase, including periods, pregnancy, and menopause.
How it works
Knours team studied the relationship between the menstrual cycle and skin changes, then divided the cycle into four phases. Since hormones fluctuate in response to women’s monthly cycles, we thought it would make most sense to make skincare that responds to the body’s crucial changes.
Phase 1 (The week of the period)
Your skin feel sensitive, dry and dull all while you are feeling more tired and sensitive due to rise in prostaglandin hormone.
Phase 2 (Right after the period till you ovulate)
Your skin is hydrated and glowy thanks to increased levels of estrogen and you are wishing this look last longer.
Phase 3 (A week after ovulation)
Your skin Is becoming for oily and pores feel clogged due to higher levels of testosterone.
Phase 4 (a week before your period)
Your skin is oily from increased sebum production, and you’ll be more likely to get breakouts, including cystic acne around chin and jawline.
