Here are a few ways to balance your hormones overall:
When ever you get stressed, your adrenal glands create Cortisol that gives you increased Androgens and increases your acne.
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).
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)
Omega 3 Fish Oil (5ml per day)
Grape Seed Oil
GLA from Evening Primrose Oil (5ml per day)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Vitamin B’s (especially Vitamin B6)
Chasteberry (Vitex Agnus-Castus)
Green Tea Extract
Pumpkin Seed Oil
Those are just some of the general herbs and important vitamins that can help you in balancing your hormones overall. You also want to do your own research, and talk to your doctor to make sure something is right for you.
The first and most important thing you should do is to get your hormones tested using a saliva test, which is more accurate than a blood test. It will give you a much better picture of what you need to work on.
