The reason women have breakouts during their period is because the sex hormones are at their lowest point during the entire cycle. The adrenals have to adjust accordingly, and produce the shortage of progesterone, and estrogen, as well as make up for the multitude of functions these hormones produce. Thus, they aren’t as effective at regulating blood sugar levels.
Basically whatever stresses my adrenals the most cause breakout’s for me.
Excessive sugar, lots of refined flour, excessive working out, emotional stress, etc.
Their aren’t many things you can control in life, but what you put in your mouth is one of the easiest.
Acne is an inflammatory condition. The fastest way to control it is through your insulin levels. This actually isn’t far off from taking prescription medicine. Although effective, long term results can be very unpleasant.
