We’re all too familiar with the struggles of monthly period symptoms (thanks a lot, mother nature) – and one of the worst symptoms of all? Facial breakouts. Before you admit defeat, consider switching up your skin care routine.

From blemish spot treatments to brightening serums, here are 10 beauty products that can help relieve skin woes during that time of the month.
