Hormonal Acne can be a real problem for people of almost any age. When you start or stop birth control, taking testosterone, enter puberty, become peri-menapausal or use herbs for health reasons, hormones in the body get out of whack and knock your skin around especially if you are acne prone. Â Eating foods high in androgens like beef, dairy, peanuts and foods high in iodides ( shell fish and suchi) will do the same thing to your skin. Â Another herb called maca root , used to regulate hormones, is popular right now. One of the main reasons people take maca root, according to the Wealthy-Choices.com website, is for a boost in sex drive, which is regulated by internal hormones in the brain. As a result, your hormonal balance can be affected by taking this herbal supplement. Acne is a common side effect related to changes in hormonal balance, and the Wealthy-Choice.com website states that patients taking maca root have reported an increase in skin blemish production. This side effect is even more likely to occur in people prone to acne production independent of maca root consumption. Whatever you place in your body will have consciousness Â especially if you are prone to pimples or acne. Ask BEFORE you take these herbs. If who ever is recommending these things don’t know, make them find out before you blindly trust take something that could effect your skin. Your body’s hormone system needs to be in balance for it to work properly.
