Did you know that hormones play a significant role in the development of acne? If your skin is suddenly oily and broken out, you may be suffering from a hormone imbalance. Hormonal acne tends to flare up on the jawline and around the mouth. What’s more, it affects about a third of adult women.
If you think you are experiencing signs of hormonal acne, it’s best to go to your doctor and dermatologist for professional treatment. The problem needs to be treated internally because topical creams and applications will not eliminate acne caused by hormonal imbalance.
Treatments for hormonal acne include prescription strength solutions, estrogen metabolizing supplements and herbal treatments with natural hormone balancing qualities. It’s important to talk to your skincare provider to find the right treatment for your hormonal acne.
If you suddenly develop acne in your thirties, it is most likely due to a hormonal imbalance.
Don’t throw your money away buying every facial cream and cleanser on the market when they ultimately can not help you with a case of acne that is caused by a hormonal imbalance.
It’s important to understand the connection between PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), and the health of your skin.
Polycystic ovary syndrome is a problem in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance. It can cause issues with periods, your ability to become pregnant and eventually could lead to diabetes and heart disease. PCOS can also affect the health of your skin and your appearance.
The female ovary produces miniscule amounts of male hormones, known as androgens. If you are suffering from PCOS, the ovaries begin producing too much androgen and cause an imbalance, which can affect the health and appearance of your skin.
The exact reason for PCOS is not yet fully understood. It does seem to be hereditary, and is passed down from either your mother’s or father’s side.
There are so many causes for acne, it can sometimes be difficult to figure out exactly where yours originates from. But new research suggests it can be caused by a myriad of sources which you may be able to reduce or remove from your daily life.
Like your overall total health, the health of your skin is directly connected to what you put into your body. If you aren’t getting the right nutrition, you’ll never be able to get the clear, glowing skin you want.
Toxins are a common cause of acne. The cosmetics industry is filled with toxic- and chemical-based products that may be responsible for your acne problems.
