Clear Fix: Estrogen, a natural oil suppressant, plummets just before the start of your period, explains Howard Murad, MD, a Los Angeles-based dermatologist and a FITNESS advisory board member. Head off the oil overload with a scrub. "The week before your period, use one with salicylic acid every other day," says Jillian Wright, owner of Glow Skin Spa in New York City.

What to Use: Buff with Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions Pore Refining Scrub ($9.99, burtsbees.com) or St. Ives Blemish & Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub ($3.99, drugstores).
