Hormonal Acne

Our hormones are key players in our bodies at relaying messages and signals to keep everything functioning properly – though sometimes too much or too little of specific hormones can wreak havoc in our skin. Hormonal Acne, also called adult acne, can affect both men and women but is most common in certain phases of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause.

Get The Facts

Regular hormone fluctuations can reflect in our skin as increased sensitivity and inflammation, a disrupted skin barrier, and increased sebaceous (oil) gland activity, which can result in acne. If suffering from Hormonal Acne, the goal is to control the skin’s sebum production, maintain the skin’s barrier, and prevent bacteria from getting into the pores and causing acne. It’s also beneficial to determine the cause of the Hormonal Acne to better understand how to treat it. Our team of SKIN experts will be happy to help you come up with a plan to combat this stubborn issue.
