Head over to the Lyftaal journal to read this piece that I wrote that takes a deeper look at how some of our key hormones can affect skin health.

“There are many different factors that play a role in our skin health including things like genetics, our environment, and our hormones. From adult-onset acne and skin ageing, to flare-ups during puberty and our periods, hormones have one of the more interesting roles to play in the way that our skin looks and functions.

Your skin is sensitive to hormonal changes, with imbalances often leading to flare-ups or bouts of oily skin. For example, acne outbreaks are fairly common during the premenstrual and menstrual periods due to the impact of hormonal changes on facial oil.”
