What is Hormonal Acne?
Hormonal acne, commonly known as adult acne, usually affects individuals aged 20 to 50. Acne creates pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and cysts on your face, shoulders, chest, and back. It can be brutal, causing severe loss of confidence and life long scars. It is therefore important to deal with it as it starts to develop.
What causes hormonal acne?
Hormonal acne is caused by an overabundance of sebum in the oil glands. Hormonal acne occurs when hormonal changes increase the amount of oil produced by your skin. This oil interacts with bacteria on your skin’s pores where hair grows (hair follicles), resulting in acne.
