Hormonal acne is cystic acne that usually appears on chin area and jawline. According to mine and my client's experiences, these acne are stubborn, painful and more difficult to treat.
For my personal experience, my skin condition is becoming better after I stopped using detergent-type of foaming cleansers with high pH level. As I'm not wearing makeup most of the time, I usually skip the makeup removal process, only washing my face the the low pH Probiotic Cleanser, then toning my skin with the Moisturizing Liquid Facial. Please avoid using toners or essence with drying alcohol because it actually makes the skin a lot drier.
I also use Super Peel once a week for exfoliation. On my peel day, I like to follow up with the Pure Resveratrol Serum. Resveratrol is a powerful anti-acne antioxidant without any acidic or peeling properties. If you have sensitive skin, please add another step with some nourishing products like Blue Balancing Oil or Prickly Pear Oil.
My hormonal acne were totally gone after I add prickly pear oil into my skincare routine. Highly recommended!
Out of many days in a week when I'm not using Super Peel, I like to use 5% Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) serum after cleansing and toning, then follow with this Ultra Moisture Cream.
Besides good skincare practice, I also noticed most people's skin are reacting very well after cutting sugar and some dairy products off their diets, as we all know sugar could cause internal inflammation.
This is the basic skincare regimen for active hormonal acne, as for the acne scars, I will write another article on it later.
