Female Hormonal Acne

Female Hormonal Acne

Female hormonal acne is a problem against which no one representative of the beautiful gender is insured. You may use different scrubs, skin creams and other stuff, you may be obsessed with various diets and don’t drink any alcohol and give up smoking, you may visit your dermatologist regularly but suddenly this disaster can appear on your skin. And it really can be something like disaster for a poor woman who is struggling for her beauty but suddenly it seems like all is in vain.

To tackle any problem, you ought to know its origin. See, in many cases we can say our great “thanks” to men for having these disgusting things on our skin. Why? Because one of the most common factors that cause female hormonal acne is boost in activity of sebaceous glands, which begin to produce more oil, which generally serves to protect our skin, but in some cases (particularly if too much of oil is being generated) the oil, mixed with scaled skin, can fill skin pores and in such way black spots appear.

You may ask: “So, what has it to do with men?” Don’t be in a hurry. It happens that sometimes level of hormones called androgens in your organism increases and that triggers boosted activity of sebaceous glands. The matter is that androgens are MEN hormones.

So, after having said thanks for our greasiness and acneness to men it’s time to eliminate our disease. Be ready to have a hard struggle especially if you deal with teenage or pregnancy acne.

Hormones’ boost can be caused by some phase of menses – many women suffer from acne just before menstruation. Generally, this kind of acne is not severe and in a couple of days it disappears. The next major reason is oral contraceptives – in some cases you should think about changing them, if you are taking any of these.

Surely, women acne is not caused by hormones only. But the worst thing about hormones burst causing acne is that that often regulation of hormones level in your organism can seem to be impossible – as you cannot (and you mustn’t, of course) do anything with your teenage or pregnancy acne. In this case you’ll have to have some treatment…remember, that natural female acne treatment is better.

 

Is there an Effective Remedy for Adult Acne?

As many other phenomena that we come across in our life, acne has some stereotypes. For example, it is thought that acne is a problem which concerns mostly youngsters. Sometimes young adult men regard themselves as “still teenagers” only because they are not able to dispose of acne which they associate with adolescence. That is at least not correct, as regarding acne as a mostly problem with face skin – acne appear at many places but the thing is that on the face they are more noticeable and therefore cause more problems.

The same is with age – of course, adult acne are not so frequent as acne in puberty age, but still millions adult men complain on having them and millions of adult women break forth when they notice these ugly little spots on the face of their own reflection. As a rule, acne forms when sebaceous glands under our skin begin to produce too much oil, or this oil is not removed from the skin – in such case it chokes skin pores together with dead skin, sweat and dust. Acne can also be a consequence of allergy or of harmful activity of a follicle mite – this ugly small creature is parasitizing in sebaceous glands and hair bulbs. The latter case is the hardest in all cases of having acne, but nevertheless it is quite remediable as well and some visits to dermatologist will help you to get rid of this filthy arachnid.

A good remedy, of course, is to prevent acne, which is easier and less costly that curing inveterate skin disease. But one believes in wonder when hears a sound of thunder – that’s why over and over again people have to fight against many avoidable troubles.

If you do have acne, the best advice will be to pay a visit to a cosmetologist or dermatologist. But if you really don’t have time and wish to spend your precious time and money in a hospital, you may try an effective remedy for adult acne like black earth, yeast mask or salicylic acid. Acne can be treated with calendula infusion or some other alcohol-containing preparations.
