Hormonal Acne & How to Treat it

It appears when there is a shift in your hormones. Although it is more common during puberty it can affect adults at any age. This shift in hormonal levels is caused by a number of factors such as menstruation and menopause.  To be more specific those hormones which cause hormonal acne are estrogen and progesterone.

Although many associate acne with teenage years this is not the case with hormonal acne. Hormonal acne is actually more frequent in woman between the ages of 20-29.

During these years women hormonal levels are much more vigorous and agile. This healthy and energetic level of hormonal level in women is the reason most women are pregnant in their 20´s which also is an ideal time to have babies and is the reason also for hormonal acne.

Although age is one of the most important factors other factors such as genetics can also come play a role. Therefor some people can be affected by acne associates with hormonal changes up to 50 years old.

Parts of the body most impacted by hormonal acne are forehead, nose, chin, cheeks and your jawline. The acne appears in the face in the forms of blackheads, whiteheads and little pimples. To be able to determine if your acne is hormonal the part of the face where acne appears is a key indicator. If acne is appearing in your lower face such as chin and jawline it is most likely hormonal acne.
