How Hormonal Changes Affect Your Skin

by Posted in Skin .

Our skin can be incredibly changeable, and it doesn’t take much to have a huge impact on the way our skin feels and looks. Even our own bodies can have a huge effect on the health of our skin, as changes in hormones can cause a range of skin issues. So, how do these hormones change the way your skin looks and feels, and what can you do in order to improve your symptoms?

Oestrogen

Oestrogen is a hormone which is largely involved in sexual and reproductive development. It is essential to the female body, but a disruption in levels can have a huge impact on your skin. The presence of Oestrogen in the female body is responsible for decreasing pore size and building collagen and elastin, so the right levels of the Oestrogen hormone are great for your skin!

However, as we get older, women produce less and less Oestrogen, resulting in the skin losing some of its elasticity, which, in turn, leads to fine lines and wrinkles.

We have a range of products that can help to give your skin a more youthful look, such as the Obagi ELASTIderm® Eye Treatment, which doesn’t just hydrate the top layer of your skin, but treats the skin deeply as well, helping to replenish collagen and elastin. Take a look at our online shop to find more products that would be perfect for you.

Testosterone

While testosterone may be known as a male hormone, it is present in both men and women. This hormone is necessary for the development of muscle mass and plays an important role in the female libido.

However, if the levels of testosterone increase, it can lead to a range of problems such as an irregular or absent menstrual cycle, an increase in body hair and even infertility. As well as these issues, testosterone can also be a cause of acne. If you have particularly high levels of testosterone, your doctor can prescribe certain treatments to lower them.

However, there are things that you can do to address the skin problems associated with elevated testosterone levels.

We stock a number of products that can be used to target acne, from ranges that include Obagi. You can read more about how to deal with acne on our blog.

Hormonal changes can have a huge impact on the way our skin looks and feels, and these changes can happen at various times throughout your life. It is important to have a good skincare routine in order to keep your skin healthy regardless of the changes that are happening in your body. It is also important to continually reassess your routine to find the perfect products for you and your skin.
