Learn the best way to keep acne hormones under control for clearer skin

Many people tend to blame hormones when it comes to acne and assume there is nothing that can be done, but did you know that you can actually keep acne hormones under control? One of the most common ways that women control their acne and hormones is through birth control, which works by enforcing hormone regularity in the system. Each pill is different, but generally they contain estrogen and progesterone and work y raising estrogen levels or restoring proper balance between the two. Birth control has proved to be a very effective method at controlling and treating acne hormones. Many women have noticed that their skin tends to act up more during a certain time of the month.

For women that are not on birth control or stop taking it, there is another method to deal with acne hormones. If you visit your dermatologist or doctor, you can ask them to prescribe a drug designed to fight hormonal acne, such as Spironolactone or Flutamide. Flutamide is a weaker version of Spironolactone, which not everyone can handle because of various side effects. However, Spironolactone is a powerful drug that works by blocking excess testosterone receptors, which is often responsible for causing acne and excess hair growth in women.
