Hormone Imbalance Acne

Hormone Imbalance Acne

Here are a few ways to balance your hormones overall:

De-stress!

When ever you get stressed, your adrenal glands create Cortisol that gives you increased Androgens and increases your acne.

Eat a Low GI Organic Diet

Don’t eat the bad food, especially stimulants and sugar. Take in low GI, healthy organic food. Don’t have too much fruit (even though fruit is good, you don’t want to have too much because the sugar can generate stress).

Eat lots of of Essential Fatty Acids

Essential fatty acids can reduce the creation of Androgens and balance hormones. Those with acne also have deficiencies in EFAs. You can also apply them to your body, face and hair for more benefits…

Flaxseed Oil (15-60ml per day)
Sunflower Seeds
Avocadoes
Omega 3 Fish Oil (5ml per day)
Olives
Pumpkin Seeds
