Hormonal Acne: Causes, Treatments and More

Posted on November 24, 2021 By Deepika Samant

Hormonal acne is exactly what you think it is- Acne which is directly related to the hormonal fluctuations of your body. Hormonal acne is when breakouts occur on your skin. These can be in the form of pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads. Although you may experience hormonal acne during puberty in some cases it occurs in adults as well. 

Understanding Hormonal Acne

Hormonal acne is linked to the overproduction of sebum due to hormonal changes. This clogs skin pores resulting in acne. Hormonal acne often appears during puberty and on the T-zone of the face. Most commonly hormonal acne affects people between the ages of 20 and 50. 

Hormonal acne in adults occurs in the bottom part of the face, usually below the cheeks and around the jawline. In certain situations, hormonal acne may take shape into whiteheads, blackheads and cysts. 

Hormonal acne affects both men and women, but majorly pregnant women and women undergoing menopause.

What Causes Hormonal Acne?

Hormonal acne develops when fluctuation in hormones causes oil glands to produce excessive oil. The oil interacts with bacteria on the skin pores where hair follicles grow and cause acne. Here are some of the causes of hormonal acne:

  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Poor diet and hygiene
  • Side effect from a medication
  • Family history of acne
  • Medical conditions like PCOS

How to Manage Hormonal Acne

If your acne is mild, then taking OTCs can help. But if the acne is in a much severe stage, OCTs cannot help because the bumps occur below the skin surface and the medication cannot reach the deeper layers of the skin. In such cases, you should seek professional help.

However, few natural remedies can help with mild to moderate acne. These include:

  • Tea tree oil
  • Aloe vera
  • Green tea
  • Alpha hydroxy acid 
  • Honey
