How to Treat Hormonal Acne
Hormonal acne is a common skin concern caused by hormone fluctuations, such as during menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and menopause. These hormonal changes can lead to an overproduction of oil and bacteria, which can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Depending on the severity of your acne, different treatment options are available. For example, for blackheads and whiteheads, topical creams or OTC products may help. You should also (1) cleanse your skin daily, (2) consider taking oral contraceptives, (3) change your diet to include healthier options, and (4) try light or laser therapy. It's also important to avoid picking at acne, as this can lead to scarring and further inflammation.
