This hormone chart can tell when you’re most likely to get spots

We all experience hormonal break outs from time to time, and let's just say we're not too fond of them.

From dry patches, to spots and oily skin, it can be hard to keep our faces under control and blemish-free.

However, this new chart can apparently track when your skin is going to break out.

Dr Terry Loong, a top skin doctor, created a monthly 'Skin Cycle' in order for women to treat their skin properly.

How to work out your skin's 'monthly cycle'

"The Skin Cycle is all about being in tune with your body and can help minimise break outs, sensitivity and dryness and maximise skin repair," she told Cosmo.

The chart is 28 days long, and works along with your time of the month.

According to the cycle, from days one to four your skin will be "greasy and acne prone.

"Skin is most problematic during this time of the cycle. It is oily and thus prone to acne, and you may have pronounced dark circles under your eyes.

"Even if you don't feel like it, try to work up a sweat with exercise – it helps remove dirt and unclog pores," the chart reads.

"Make sure you sweep toner over your face afterwards to remove sweat and grease."

The chart then moves onto days five to ten. During these days, it claims that your skin will be mostly dry.

"Your skin is likely to be dry and a little flaky at the beginning of your cycle. Drink plenty of water and increase your intake of healthy fats to help it to stay supple."

Then from days 11 to 21, the chart states that we're supposed to have "normal and glowing" skin.

"Skin should be the healthiest and clearest between [these days]."

It suggests to "engage in gentle, relaxing exercise, such as yoga, to help ease your stress levels and keep skin clear."

Unfortunately, from days 22 to 28, our skin is back to being greasy and acne prone, and then the cycle starts all over again.

But as we all know, everyone is different, and if you suffer from bad skin the best thing to do is consult with your own doctor to figure out the best course of action for you,
