Hormonal Acne



        


how to treat hormonal acne


Monthly periods, changing birth control, post baby and menopause, these events can all trigger hormonal acne in women.  Men may have acne in their teen years and then it tapers off, however women can spend their entire life fighting hormonal acne. Hormonal acne is frustrating, and appears generally on the lower part of the face in the form of deep, cystic type zits. The main contributor to hormonal acne problems are a women’s androgen levels. When estrogen levels drop approximately two weeks after menstruation, testosterone, an androgen, stimulates the oil glands. Oil production increases, making an acne flare-up much more likely.  Hormonal acne can be controlled though and overcome with regular skin care treatments and safe, therapeutic-grade products.  Products which contain, glycolic, mandelic and salicylic and/or benzoyl peroxide all used in the right way for your acne can keep hormonal acne from forming in the first place.
