problem / hormonal breakouts
Hormonal breakouts happen to most women. This usually happens on the chin or jawline. It often occurs just before you get your period but may linger as these larger blemishes take a while to heal.
If you deal with hormonal acne, you know how frustrating it can be. People assume that hormonal acne stops after puberty, but that's not always the case. In fact, many women continue to deal with hormonal acne well into their 20s and 30s and even during perimenopause. There are several reasons people get breakouts, but primarily hormonal acne is related to imbalances of excess androgen production, the main culprit behind hormonal acne. Androgens are a class of hormones that includes testosterone and DHEA, both of which can contribute to excess sebum production, clogged pores and inflammation. The truth is that there is no one cure for hormonal acne, and clearing up your skin often needs a holistic approach. Lifestyle habits such as good skin care and a healthy diet are foundational and supplements can be especially helpful to fill in nutritional gaps or add beneficial levels of specific nutrients for the skin. Niacinamide is a B Vitamin that helps soothe inflammation to lessen the appearance of redness caused by the dilation of capillaries that bring healing repair factors to the skin. Niacinamide regulates the amount of oil produced by your skin by balancing your skin’s moisture content. This helps prevent the type of overproduction of oil that can lead to acne breakouts. Because your skin is inflamed, azelaic acid is a good exfoliating choice for hormonal acne as it also calms inflammation.
