- Puberty ~ Your body is going into overdrive with the formation of hormones all over and the liver cannot cope with clearing the toxins.
- Pregnancy ~ It is a well-known fact that during pregnancy the body produces a lot of hormones to help support the fetus that is growing inside the mother. Not only will there be acne, but also a lot of other health problems like back pain, morning sickness, nausea, dizziness and others. All these are signs that something is not right with the functioning of the body.
- Menstruation ~ The monthly cycle causes the formation of several hormonal imbalances as well. The loss of blood and losing of important nutrients puts the body into overdrive causing acne.
Along with the birth control pill, there are several other forms of medication that are used for the treatment of hormonal imbalance. One needs to consult their dermatologist in order to get a prescription.
- Maintain personal hygiene and always clean your face before sleeping.
- Avoid having overly spicy and oily food.
