Hormonal Acne 101

Hi my lovelies! Alrighty ladies, besides Mother Nature's gift of the month, your face also presents a gift:overly active skin which then can lead to hormonal acne.
Okay so what causes hormonal acne?
Usually, our faces have a normal amount of something called androgens that produce oil on our faces which is normal. Then during TOM (time of month) the androgens, which are hormones, go crazy causing acne flares that come along as well.
Some ways to treat hormonal acne:
1. The toothpaste trick. If you really need to leave but have a zit, dab some toothpaste on it and wait for ten minutes and wash off. PAT skin dry or it'll be easily irritated. The swelling and redness should go down, and this is a good quick fix.
2. Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Face Wash. So I used to use the toothpaste trick until my face had an allergic reaction to it and broke out so bad. So I picked this face wash up and it works miracles, I'm convinced. I use it in the morning and at night and perfecto! Gone in a few days.
3. Exercise. It produces sweat so the toxins are expelled from your body and it helps you keep the cramps at bay too. And you get in shape all at the same time!
4. Water. It will constantly flush all the bad stuff out of your system and help regulate the androgens better.

Okay well there are some tips for dealing with hormonal acne! Hope you enjoyed, bye!
