Your self esteem goes up and down with your breakouts. I was shocked to discover that the single strongest cause of acne was diet.
Or to your friends, your boss, or even your customers? In fact, they work on a very shallow, surface level. In reality, acne is a deep hormonal problem in your body. Are you starting to see why all those treatments you’ve tried so far haven’t done much? But it’s like sitting in tiny wooden row-boat with a gaping hole in it, and trying to bail it out with a coffee mug. The water keeps coming in, no matter how fast you move that dang coffee mug. The acne keeps coming back, no matter how many treatments you try. You’ll be able to practically wipe the pimples off! What’s causing the blockage of hair follicles that release oil? Meanwhile, down at the lake, people are scrambling to clean up all the pollution in the water and on the shores. It helped my zits go away faster, but they kept coming.You know those big, red, painful zits you feel under your skin that unlike whiteheads and blackheads, don't rise up to the surface?They're actually a totally different type of acne called cystic acne, and the underground pimples can be harder to get rid of and lead to scarring if treated the wrong way.I bought 0 moisturizer that a Sephora clerk claims “fixed her friend’s face.” I even did pyramid-scheme face products that CLAIM to give you baby skin.The desperate trial and error phase went on for about a year.Hormones: Androgen hormones overstimulate the sebaceous (oil) glands, which makes your body produce so much oil that it gets stuck in your pores and traps bacteria.The bacteria multiplies, causing the inflammation that starts a cystic pimple.I used this black tar thing that was supposed to coax out the zit.I used these ridiculously expensive alpha beta peels.This is what is generally referred to when people say “hormonal acne”.Many women ask the question – how do I know if my acne is hormonal or not?
