Hye. Lepas period kulit kita akan menggelupas the whole face ke? Is it a joke or a normal situation? I found a video where they stated that every month after period they need to peel of their skin. Macam bersalin kulit kata orang. Which situation is normal actually? A woman with a need to peel of their skin after period or a woman who never in a situation to peel of their skin ?

The video circulating in the internet regarding the need to peel the skin during or after menstruation is a hoax. Skin function as a protective barrier from outside pathogen or germs. Therefore, peeling the skin without any cause makes the skin thinner and loss its protective function.
