The deal with this acne is that it can happen to anyone, anytime, anyhow, you can get it in your teens, you can get it when you’re pregnant, or you can get it in your forties, it can happen to all of us, I know, it’s crazy.
Hormonal acne is caused by an imbalance in your body. Any form of change in your body actually makes your hormones go crazy. Basically when you have your period, when you have a baby there’s a change in your body, when you’re growing up your body and your skin is changing and like for example your oil glands are more prominent around menstruations, and that’s why you have breakouts, and you become more sensitive to foods that you eat and that is why I want to share with you some tips that you can incorporate into your daily life that can help control the breakouts so doesn’t go crazy and worst.
Tips To Control Acne Breakouts – Hormonal Acne:
Tip 1: Exercise Regularly
Exercising it’s very important because when you exercise your body produces endorphins and helps control excess hormones.
Obvious when you have your period you can’t really exercise that much, but try to incorporate exercise into your daily life so try at least walk 20 minutes a day, anything to keep the blood flowing and keeping your pores clean as well, so do that throughout the week, not just your period time.
Tip 2: Watch your diet!
Diet and exercise always work hand in hand but try to cut out things like peanuts, chocolate, dairy products, things like that around the time when you actually have your period or even around the time that your body is going thru some sort of change. Try to eat clean foods like fruits, salads, meat. If you don’t eat meat then try to get your protein from somewhere else like for example spinach and things like that.
Tip 3: Drink Water
Drinking more water is very important because not only that flushes out the toxins but allows your skin, hair and nails do its things because water provides 80% of everything in our body.
Tip 4: Sleep!
Regulating your sleep is very important. I always find out when I have a more regular pattern of sleep so for example I sleep let’s say from 10 p.m to 6 a.m. every day like this for a whole week, my body seems to be calmer and my skin is more intact everything else is going well. As soon as I have one or two nights when I’m sleeping late, my skin, everything goes crazy because your hormones are changing, so try to regulate your sleep patterns more often and try to rest well.
Tip 5: Don’t stress!
Stress is probably the key to all problems. It can cause you breakouts, illness, hair loss and also when you’re stressed your body produces the same hormones that you have in your period, so you just make the problem worse because you’re creating more harmful hormones.
Pimples will stress you out because the only thought you have is how ugly they look on your face, but worrying about that will only make things worse, and there’s also a solution to this problem, and it’s called makeup. Try to find ways to de-stress yourself like shopping, playing games, watching TV, listen to music, etc.
The last thing I want to share with you, it’s pressure points and how to stimulate them. There is a specific point for a specific type of acne, and there are two pressure points that you can try that also help with body detox.
The first pressure point is between your thumb and your index finger, and this helps with headaches, dizziness, stomach problems, PMS, acne. Try to massage it for 30-50 times when you have time like for example when you’re reading, watching TV, etc.
The second pressure point is right underneath your jawline; it’s actually like a gap between your jaw and your neck. Stimulating this area helps to drain out all the toxins and it contributes to clear the skin as well. You should do this one 50 times as well, and this also helps to drain any water retention.
Don’t stress too much about the acne breakouts and if you are experiencing severe acne breakouts, please see a doctor because I’m sure they will have something that can help.
