PCOS and Acne - love your skin again
Posted on September 03 2018
PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) or hormone imbalance causes several skin-related symptoms, including oily skin, adult acne, skin tags, and dark velvety skin patches known as acanthosis nigricans. More than 1 in 5 women suffer from PCOS. It’s now the #1 health condition facing women today so it’s no wonder that it has such an impact on skin health.
Whilst you might be able to hide the pain in your tummy or the irregularity of your menstrual cycle, but seeing your skin breakout with blemishes, become irritated or start to change in texture is not only uncomfortable but an undeniable sign that something is wrong..
Are you suffering from PCOS challenges like I did?
I struggled for years, actually decades with PCOS and it's accompanying symptoms. I know how distressing it can be, I know how it can affect your self esteem and after years of research I learned how to manage it from both the inside and the outside.
So, what's going on? These are some of the underlying causes of PCOS and acne:
- Nutrient deficiencies – your body may belacking vital nutrients for its daily needs
- Eating food that doesn't agree with your body
- The wrong exercise or type of movement for you
- Inadequate rest and sleep for you
- Low thyroid function
- Low adrenal function
- Sluggish liver
- Poor microbiome (gut bacteria) balance
- You’re just too busy
- Negative thoughts
- Your genetics
- Medications – while you may be taking medication for some of your symptoms, they may adversely affect your skin health.
Here’s the great news! You have all the power to help your body to have beautiful, glowing skin.
