Hormonal Acne Treatment

Are you struggling with acne due to fluctuations in your hormones - aka Hormonal Acne?

If you’re reading this page it’s probably because you’ve decided that the contraceptive pill, Accutane/Roaccutane and antibiotics aren’t the long term answer to your hormonal acne problems.

You’ve realised this because of all the research you’ve done, reading blog posts, listening to podcasts and watching vlogs.

And now you understand that while conventional medical treatments can clear up your hormonal acne they don’t actually treat its underlying cause.

This means of course, once you stop them your hormonal acne problems return. And often worse than before!

This isn’t a great choice to be faced with because from what my hormonal acne patients tell me, having hormonal acne makes you feel like sh#!

This is because when you’ve got hormonal acne that just won’t go away it takes over your life.

Your skin, your pores and what it looks like becomes an obsession.

Every day, as soon as you wake up in the morning and the last thing at night you check in the mirror for new blackheads or pimples.

To make sure no one sees how bad your hormonal acne is you make sure you always have make-up on.

You avoid doing anything that might wash off your make-up like swimming or sweating. Because you’d die if your friends saw the extent of the red, angry pimples covering your face.

But it’s not the day by day of making sure you’ve got your make-up on that stresses you out.

Constant hormonal breakouts also make you want to avoid going out and catching up with people.

When you’re out it feels like people you talk to are looking at your acne.

You feel ugly, embarrassed and depressed.

So if you desperately want picture-perfect skin, but you don’t want to poison your body with oral medications or chemicals and synthetic hormones then what is the best skin care routine that’s natural and healthy too?

The good news is, there is help.

This article will discuss the best treatment options that have helped different people with a long-term, effective solution without resorting to the dermatologist, prescription medicine or other painful rituals.

I'm about to show you a healthy, effective and long term solution to rid inflammation and even the most severe acne problem in minimum time.

Get ready to take control of your inflammation and start an effective proven method to control your skin, pores and appearance.

Three steps to successfully treat hormonal acne

1. Saliva testing of testosterone, DHEA, progesterone, oestrogen and cortisol to pinpoint hormone imbalances.

Saliva is better than blood testing for what we want to look at because I’m not looking to see if you have a disease. Blood testing is a great form. However, for hormone imbalance, saliva provides better insight. Saliva tells us what the hormone levels are like right next to your cells, rather than what’s being carried through the bloodstream.

2. Blood tests to check iron, zinc and Vitamin D levels.

Low levels of critical nutrients can suppress your ovaries and their production of oestrogen and progesterone. And nutrient deficiencies can also make you cells more sensitive to androgens like testosterone.

3. Based on the results from the tests, formulate a natural hormone re-balancing program of herbs, vitamins and minerals.

Herbs, vitamins and minerals support your ovaries to make the correct hormone levels rather than take over hormone production as over-the-counter products or contraceptive pill does. When your hormone levels are balanced your skin condition will be balanced which is true re-balancing.

Best Products For Hormonal Acne

The best natural remedies for hormonal acne can be broken down into three categories –

Best Herbs For Hormonal Acne

Vitex/Chaste Tree – this herb helps clear hormonal acne by indirectly raising your progesterone levels. Vitex works on your pituitary gland and suppresses the release of a hormone called prolactin (the hormone that makes women lactate).

Stress causes your pituitary gland to release extra prolactin which in turn suppresses progesterone production. Less progesterone means more oil and more acne. So Vitex prevents this happening.

Common signs you’re making too much prolactin are feeling irritable before your period and your breasts swell or are tender before your period.

Licorice & Paeony – these two herbs in combination help supress androgen (testosterone) production in women. Plus this combination also makes your cells less sensitive to androgens making it perfect for shutting down the excess oil caused by androgens and clearing up your hormonal acne.

Saw Palmetto – this herb stops testosterone exerting a strong effect on your cells. The weaker the effect of testosterone the less oil your skin produces and the less acne you have.

Blue Flag – this herb helps decongest your skin so that your acne isn’t so swollen and inflamed.

DIM (Diindolylmethane) – this is actually a specific nutrient extracted from cruciferous vegetables like broccoli. It’s great for hormonal acne because DIM makes your cells less sensitive to andogens and helps your body eliminate excess hormones.

Best Minerals For Hormonal Acne

Zinc – is essential for optimal ovary function but most importantly it is a potent anti-androgen. That means it makes your cells less sensitive to androgens and also helps your body eliminate them too.

Iron – is super important for optimal ovary function. You need your ovaries in tip top shape to make adequate levels of oestrogen and progesterone which heal your dead skin cells and supress production of oil.

Iodine – like iron, iodine is critical for optimal ovary function. Plus like zinc it essential for eliminating hormones from your body.

Magnesium – is the number one mineral for insulin problems like insulin resistance. Keeping insulin down prevents it from stimulating your ovaries to make excess testosterone.

Best Vitamins For Hormonal Acne

Vitamin A – the natural cousin of Accutane/Roaccutane. Vitamin A helps control and minimise oil production. Plus it is an essential nutrient for skin healing.

Vitamin D – is critical for optimal ovary function. Optimum Vitamin D levels allow your ovaries to make optimum amounts of oestrogen and progesterone.

The beautiful thing about herbs, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients is they can truly rebalance your hormones. They make your ovaries work properly so they release optimum levels of oestrogen and progesterone and not too much testosterone.

Hormone levels are corrected, production of oil is normalised, hormonal acne is eliminated and your skin condition clears up.
