Ugh...that time of the month AND acne?

Ugh...that time of the month AND acne?

Hey , 

Dealing with acne during that time of the month? Yes? I’m gonna assume you are because we get a lot of DMs about it. 🤷‍♀️ Even those of us who don’t break out consistently, get what we call ‘hormonal acne’. Hormonal acne most commonly appears in women between ages 20 to 40 but it’s also very common in teens – and if you’re a parent with a teen boy, you might know this already. 

How do hormones affect your skin and breakouts? What are the treatments? Keep scrolling to get the 101 on hormonal acne! 👇

SKIN NEWS YOU CAN USE

Getting rid of hormonal acne

What causes it? Acne emerges from pores clogged with sebum, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Hormones, such as androgens, control sebum production. So when hormone levels fluctuate throughout the month, the imbalance results in an overproduction of sebum AKA more breakouts!  
👀 Spot hormonal acne on your face!

Period skin?!?! Your hormones constantly fluctuate, which means there's a time when breakouts are at an all time high – and a time when your skin is *glowing!* So... when are those times in your menstrual cycle? 
🔍 A close look at your skin in the 28-days

Birth control – the go-to treatment? I remember from high school when my friend would use BC just to control her hormonal, cystic acne. So yes, birth control regulates your hormones and thus acne... but that's not the case for all types of BC! 
💊 Birth control approved for acne

WB other oral acne meds? Besides birth control, oral antibiotics and isotretinoin are other oral medications that are known to help clear up your skin from the inside out. But as with all meds, they're typically prescription only and come with their own set of pros and cons.

What we're loving RN

Chemical and physical exfoliation. Sebum + oil + sweat in the summer is the recipe for acne so we need to exfoliate! Team member Megan's been loving the Korres Wild Rose Exfoliator. “It’s my favorite part of my shower routine and honestly the only few minutes each day I feel truly feel relaxed. 🧖‍♀️ I love the scent and my skin feels incredibly soft afterwards.”
🧽 Why you need to exfoliate both ways

Runnin' through the gym on my PE-LE-TON! Want to make your workout more fun? Team member Ruth has been loving working out with instructors Cody Risbey and Robin Arzon on Peleton. "They'll tell you 'YOU SHOWED UP TODAY. YOU DID IT' And I'll be like: YES. I. DID. 😭"
🚴‍♀️Find your new favorite workout

Spironolactone. Unlike BC, it's an oral hormone blocker, and team member Jing swears by it. 🤞 "I had these huge, painful bumps along my jawline and cheeks. My derm had prescribed me topical creams but they were ineffective so I went on spironolactone. It's completely stopped my monthly breakouts and my skin actually looks so much better overall."
