Hormonal Acne Treatment

Specially for women, hormonal acne treatments can be very effective when it comes to getting rid of acne. Even oral contraceptives can often lessen the acne and many women.

The reason why it works so well is because a certain kind of male hormone – called androgens – can cause the oil glands of the skin to produce excessive amounts of oil. This in turn can clog the pores, and leads to whiteheads and blackheads. However, the more acne bacteria there are, the higher the likelihood of an inflammation — this will finally lead to pustules, red pimples and lumps.

So the reason why all the treatments work is because they reduce the production of male hormones that set the whole process in action.

There are studies that show that acne spots could be reduced by up to 50% when oral contraceptives have been used for six months.

Of course, the usual side effects that can come with or contraceptives also can show up here — including nausea, headache and breast tenderness.

What many people are not aware of is that there are other factors that influence the production of hormones. For example, what you eat can have an impact on what kinds of hormones your body produces in which amounts.

Certain foods contribute to hormonal imbalances, which can lead to breakouts as we’ve seen already. So it’s a good idea to avoid sugar, refined carbs like you can find them in white bread, milk and even vegetable oil.

Many people are surprised when I tell them that they should avoid drinking milk. And that is largely due to the fact that milk is still considered a healthy drink by many people, because of all the “education” that has been going on.

You also want to avoid highly processed foods if possible, instead go for more fresh fruits and vegetables.

Another thing that can help you to reduce your acne naturally is to drink lots of water. Because this helps your body to get rid of toxins more easily.

You really have to decide which way to go. Yes, you can always take pills that balance out hormonal imbalances, but then you’re not really going to the root cause of the problem. I know that’s what many so called experts claim. They say just using the lotion on your skin is not going to the root cause, because the root cause is hormonal imbalance. But they really stop thinking one step too early. The right question to ask then is: what is causing that hormonal indolence?

Most dermatologists have no idea. But instead of admitting that they have no idea, they say there are many possible causes, but it really doesn’t matter. Just take this pill to balance out the hormonal indolence and your acne will be fine.

But when you change your diet and avoid the foods that can cause hormonal imbalances, then you’re really getting to the root cause and using natural methods that don’t have any side effects to get rid of your acne

In fact, if anything, they have positive side effects, cause you will also feel that your overall health becomes better and that you possess more energy and vitality.

However, if you are a woman and are taking contraceptives already, then you might as well take the ones that have shown to reduce acne.
