How stress could be to blame for your Hormonal Acne.

Another major player in hormonal acne is the hormone cortisol, if this hormone becomes imbalanced due to high periods of stress it can result in all matter of health issues, one of them being hormonal acne.

Why does this happen when cortisol is the hormone that deals with stress?
Cortisol is our primary stress hormone, it increases the glucose in our bloodstream, switches on our brains use of glucose and increases tissue repairing substances availabilities, basically it puts us into fight or flight mode.

During stressful periods of time when your cortisol levels peak, the skins response will be for the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum. When the skin overproduces sebum the skin will become oily, the pores will clog and become inflamed leading not only to acne but, other skin complaints such as eczema and psoriasis will elevate.

I’m absolutely loving this repair and renew cream. Being in my 50s my skin is quite dry, Especially under my eyes, this cream hydrates and softens my fine lines, giving me a lovely glow. I have only been using this cream for 4 days and I have noticed a difference already.

Well we’re do I start, this cream is amazing. Not only has it helped my ageing face skin, but I have eczema on one hand and it’s the only cream out of thousands I’ve tried that has helped it improve. Do you do any body cream, I’ve nearly finished my pot already.

Well I have been trying miracle creams for years. But nothing will ever do what a surgeons knife will do. I have dermatitis and everything irritates it so thought I would give this a go. Must say it's calmed everything down and my skin feels gold. Delighted with this miracle in a jar.
