How to Deal with Hormonal Acne: A Relaxed Guide for Women


Hey there, ladies! So, you’re dealing with hormonal acne, huh? Ugh, we feel you. But don’t worry, we’ve got some tips to help you manage your acne and get your skin looking its best.

Keep it clean, but don’t go too hard

Washing your face is super important when it comes to preventing breakouts. But, don’t go crazy with scrubbing your face or using super-hot water, because that can actually make things worse. Use a gentle cleanser to wash your face in the morning and at night, and don’t forget to use lukewarm water and a soft towel to dry your face.

Get some help from skincare products

When it comes to managing hormonal acne, you might need a little help from some skincare products. Look for products that contain salicylic acid to help unclog your pores and reduce inflammation. Just be careful not to overdo it, or you could dry out your skin. Start with a low concentration and work your way up. Why not try our Xcell Antioxidant Cleanser to start?

Hands off!

We know it’s tempting to touch your face throughout the day, but your hands are covered in germs, and that can lead to breakouts. Try to avoid touching your face as much as possible, and if you have to touch your face, make sure your hands are clean.

Take a chill pill

Stress can do a number on your hormones, which can lead to acne flare-ups. So, find ways to relax and de-stress. Whether it’s taking a yoga class, meditating, or just binge-watching your favourite show, find something that helps you unwind and make it a regular part of your routine.
