Testosterone & Acne

Hormones will affect men and women differently. Many of the changes in skin are directly tied to the production of sebum, the skin’s natural oil.

The sebaceous glands are highly sensitive to changes in sex hormone levels, specifically testosterone.

Increased testosterone  often leads to the overproduction of sebum. During puberty, testosterone levels rise in both females and males. For women, testosterone levels increase right before the menstrual cycle.

Changes in testosterone levels and increased production of sebum are the leading causes of acne.

Hormones directly impact the appearance and feel of skin. Each hormone will have a different impact on the body. Testosterone has the most significant effect on acne.

Supplement with:

✨Vitamin A : antioxidant and fights free radicals, decreases inflammation, promotes new skin cell growth, and protects against environmental damage. 

✨Zinc : decreases the production of oil in the skin which helps reduce the chance of bacterial growth and blocked pores. The body only needs low amounts, approximately 8-11 milligrams, to meet daily allowances.

Vitamin E : used as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. The fat-soluble properties of vitamin E allow for quick absorption into the skin. The faster products are absorbed, the quicker acne can heal. Vitamin E helps the skin lock in moisture and promotes the production of collagen.
