6 root causes of hormonal acne

  1. Your gut: A damaged and depleted gut microbiome. If it’s inflamed, unable to absorb nutrients or remove excess hormones. This also leads to nutrient deficiencies.
  2. A deficiency in key micronutrients for skin health (b vitamins, vitamin a, zinc, vitamin c, fatty acids) 
  3. Liver congestion: Needs micronutrients to function properly. A well-functioning liver boosts absorption of all vitamins & minerals and prevent deficiencies from happening in the first place.
  4. Inflammatory foods: Sugar, dairy, gluten, caffeine, vegetable oils. Can cause leaky gut & an inflammatory response in the body. When your liver & large intestine aren’t working as best as they can, your skin takes over & tries to eliminate the toxins which results in skin inflammation & acne.
  5. Movement/Orgasms: Movement helps the circulation & flushing out of cortisol which is essential for our skin health & orgasms do the same.
  6. Irregular period. If your period is off, your hormones are out of balance which will cause your acne to show up.

With PCOS: acne can come from high testosterone which is from a root cause of inflammation or insulin resistance.

Post pill acne

  1. Hormonal contraceptives suppress your natural hormones. When you stop them  “androgen rebound” can happen. Your body kicks into high gear & creates more testosterone. The elevated androgen levels cause an increase in sebum production which causes oily skin & acne.
  2.  Birth Control depletes ZINC
  3. It overwhelms the liver
  4. It disrupts gut microbiome
