What is hormonal acne?

Hormonal acne is a type of acne that is primarily influenced by hormonal fluctuations in the body. It typically occurs when there are changes in hormone levels, especially the androgen hormones like testosterone, which can stimulate the sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin to produce more oil. This excess oil, along with an overgrowth of skin cells, can clog hair follicles and lead to the development of acne lesions.

Hormonal acne often presents as deep, tender, and cystic pimples, typically appearing in areas where androgen receptors are more concentrated, such as the lower face, jawline, chin, and sometimes the neck and back.

What causes hormonal acne?

Hormonal acne is primarily caused by fluctuations in hormone levels, particularly androgens like testosterone, which can lead to increased sebum (oil) production and skin cell overgrowth. These changes can clog pores and result in the development of acne lesions. 

It is most commonly experienced during certain life stages, including:

  1. Puberty: Hormonal fluctuations during adolescence can lead to the onset of acne in many teenagers.
  2. Menstrual Cycle: Women may experience hormonal acne flare-ups in the days leading up to their menstrual period, which is commonly referred to as "premenstrual acne."
  3. Pregnancy: Pregnancy-related hormonal changes can either improve or worsen acne, depending on the individual.
  4. Menopause: Hormonal shifts during menopause can lead to changes in the skin, including the development of acne.
  5. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): PCOS is a hormonal disorder that often involves hormonal imbalances, leading to persistent acne as one of its symptoms.

How can I treat hormonal acne?

Managing hormonal acne may involve topical treatments, oral contraceptives (for women), anti-androgen medications, and in some cases, consultation with a dermatologist for more specialized treatment options. We recommend trying out the Misumi Skincare Clear Skin Duo Kit, which is specifically designed to target hormonal acne. 

Ingredients to look for in hormonal acne treatment

In hormonal acne skincare treatment, you can look for ingredients that help manage excess oil production, inflammation, and promote overall skin health. 

  • Witch Hazel: Witch Hazel is known for its astringent properties, which can help tighten and tone the skin. It can also reduce inflammation and soothe irritated skin, making it useful for acne-prone skin.
  • Salicylic Acid: Salicylic Acid is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that penetrates pores to exfoliate the skin, unclog pores, and reduce the formation of acne lesions. It's effective for managing hormonal acne by preventing pore blockages.
  • Sage: Sage has natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It can help reduce redness and inflammation associated with acne, making it a beneficial ingredient for calming hormonal acne breakouts.
  • Lavender: Lavender oil has soothing properties and may help alleviate skin irritation caused by acne. It also has mild antibacterial qualities, which can aid in managing acne-prone skin.

Our Clear Skin Duo Kit was specifically designed to incorporate all these four key acne-fighting ingredients and to soothe your skin and reduce redness and inflammation.
