5 Ways to Overcome Hormonal Acne
We really can't control hormones. But we can take steps to overcome hormonal zits so that they don't get worse.
Hormonal acne is pimples that arise due to fluctuations in your hormones. Many people think that hormone fluctuations will cease with the end of puberty, but not. Because there are many factors - besides puberty - that can cause your hormones to fluctuate, such as menstruation and menopause. That is why there are still many women in the age range of 20 to 40 experiencing acne problems. In addition, hormone fluctuations can also cause skin inflammation, excess oil production (sebum) in the pores, clogged skin cells in the hair follicles, increased production of bacteria that cause acne (call Propionibacterium acnes). To overcome hormonal acne, you can try applying the following methods.
# 1 Pay attention to your diet
Towards and during menstruation, for example, when your hormones fluctuate, increase consumption of foods and drinks that contain antioxidants such as green tea, fruit, vegetables, nuts, and dark chocolate. Meanwhile, avoid high-carbohydrate foods, dairy products, and red meat.
# 2 Regular Washing
Wash your face in the morning and evening using CHR Essentials Purifying Cleansing Gel. Facial cleansers containing non-soapbase provide a soothing and refreshing effect on facial skin. Continue by applying CHR Essentials Purifying Toner to balance facial skin PH, remove dead skin cells, control oil production and sebum, disguise facial pores but still maintain moisture content on the skin.
# 3 Apply Acne Medication
To speed up the healing process of acne, you can apply CHR Essentials Rescue Stick as a first aid to relieve inflamed zits. This concentrated serum helps dry and reduce inflammation in zits and helps restore skin texture. CHR Essentials Rescue Sticks can be used under or above makeup so that they are practically applied at any time.
