Hormonal acne is today the most prevalent skin condition in France ahead of eczema.
How to recognize hormonal acne?
Hormonal acne is rather located on the lower face , it is generally painful red micro cysts.
Have you spotted unsightly little pimples that appear on your face before or during your period and wondered what the connection is between your hormonal acne and your menstrual cycle?
Don't panic, we'll explain everything to you...
During our cycle there are 3 distinct phases linked to variations in the hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.
- Follicular phase : progesterone and estrogen levels are at their lowest, testosterone levels are then in the majority and the skin produces more sebum... acne surfaces.
- Ovulation phase : the estrogen level is at its highest... the acne recedes.
- Premenstrual phase : progesterone and estrogen levels drop, testosterone becomes the main hormone and sebum production starts again... acne comes back!
What you need to remember is that there are 3 somewhat critical periods in your menstrual cycle when acne can occur: the week before your period, during, and just after your ovulation.
The beauty secret to prevent and limit acne is to add the consumption of Nigella capsules (for anti-inflammatory and antibacterial purposes) and double cleansing (Nigella oil added to a cleansing gel) which constitutes the new principle of layering , a Japanese ritual that has been able to prove its benefits for millennia, and which is gradually beginning to spread in Europe!
For each acne problem, its Nigella Sativa!
