Ah, adolescence - the time of raging hormones, emotional roller coasters, and, unfortunately, pesky acne. Teens often find themselves battling hormonal acne. No need to fear; we have gathered to shed light on hormonal acne's mysteries and explore ways to combat those relentless breakouts.
What is Hormonal Acne?
Hormonal acne is like that one uninvited guest who crashes every party - the culprit behind those stubborn pimples that seemingly appear out of nowhere. It's closely linked to hormonal fluctuations, primarily caused by changes in androgen hormone levels.
What Causes Hormonal Acne?
During puberty, both boys and girls experience a surge in androgens, including testosterone. These hormones stimulate the oil glands in our skin, causing more sebum production. Combine this excess oil with dead skin cells and bacteria, and voila! You have the perfect recipe for clogged pores and acne breakouts.
