Hormones and Acne in Middle Age

Looking for ways to clear acne during the peri-menopausal and post-menopausal years? Look no further! Follow these expert tips to achieve radiant skin and tackle pesky breakouts.

First and foremost, opt for gentle, non-pore-clogging products.

When it comes to acne-fighting products, remember that less is more – a pea-sized amount is all you need. Trust me, I’ve got you covered on the exact amount, application routine, and key areas to target with your acne-clearing regimen. All of my Acne Elimination Program Clients receive in-person, virtual, and filmed tutorials on how much and HOW to use their products.

Maintaining clean skin is important, but don’t obsess over it. Gently cleanse your face in the morning and at night. If you wear makeup, go for a double cleanse. And after a workout or a good sweat, make sure to cleanse again if you are acne-prone. But remember, don’t go overboard!

Feeling overwhelmed with all the skincare hype? Let me be your guide – your very own esthetician and certified Acne Specialist! Trust me, it takes time for your skin to show results, approximately 8-12 weeks. Stay patient and consistent, and avoid changing your approach mid-game. Trust the process. Your skin will thank you!

Now, let’s shed some light on the connection between diet and acne.

While it’s still a bit of a mystery, some clues are worth considering. Dairy products with hormone additives might be troublemakers for some. If you decide to cut them out, ensure you’re getting enough calcium and vitamin D from supplements.

When it comes to your diet, avoid sugary treats, refined carbs, and red meat – they’re not the best options when your skin is acting up. Instead, focus on clean eating with whole grains, unprocessed fruits, and antioxidant-rich veggies. Don’t forget to add salmon or mackerel to your cart for their Omega-3 superhero powers. Hydration is key – drink water like it’s going out of style and eat water-dense foods; it helps your skin find homeostasis. While luscious hair is desirable, steer clear of Biotin if you’re prone to acne. It increases keratinization, and acne is a condition exacerbated by hyperkeratinization.

Remember, you’re the ultimate skin investigator! Maintain a food and skin diary, channel your inner Sherlock Holmes, and pinpoint the culprits behind your skin woes. Feel free to discuss your findings during your next appointment or email me; I’m here to help.

Let’s talk about chilling out.

Stress can be an uninvited party crasher that messes up your skin’s groove. Take a moment to relax with yoga, meditation, prayer, a leisurely walk, or curl up with a good book. Not only will your skin thank you, but your entire well-being will benefit, too.

There you have it, beauties – your ultimate guide to conquering acne during the fabulous peri-menopausal and post-menopausal years. Let’s end those pesky breakouts and embrace radiant, healthy skin!
