How to Heal Hormonal Acne Naturally

I think that hormonal acne is one of the trickiest types of acne to deal with. I deal with it, and many thousands of others deal with it. It sucks, and it's persistent, and it's annoying.

Clinically, patients with hormone-related acne can be recognized by the concentration of lesions along the jaw line, cheeks and chin. This is generally called the "beard" area/the muzzle/etc., and is considered the hormonal acne area because it is a hormone-sensitive area (men grow beards, women get acne - due to an increase in certain hormones). Acne on other parts of the face is generally not considered to be hormonal, although acne on the body may be hormonal.

Hormonal acne also tends to be nodular, acne that is large and deeply embedded, which seldom comes to a head and tends to stick around for prolonged periods of time. This is because hormones pump sebum deep into the follicle, making the pimples deeper rather than superficial.

Hormones are molecules that are involved in just about every biological process that takes place in the body, which includes:

  • Menstrual cycles

  • Reproduction

  • Immune function
