How is acne treated?

Older Post < > Newer Post

Of course, some pimples or imperfections can occur because of a polluted environment, too rich a diet, a period of intense stress…


What is hormonal acne?

Hormonal acne is as the name suggests from hormone-linked acne.
Although it is associated with hormonal fluctuations during puberty, hormonal acne can also affect adults. It is particularly common in women. A number of factors can contribute to this, including menstruation, pregnancy and menopause. It is estimated that 50% of women aged 20 to 29 have acne. It affects about 25% of women aged 40 to 49. Hormonal acne can be identified by a few specified factors:


  • When the pimples appear:

Related to the menstrual cycle they will appear in parallel with the menstrual cycle in a cyclical manner. Many women experience skin blemishes on their skin one week before their regulations or even during the ovulation period.

  • The surge is heightened by stress:

The production of the stressor hormone (cortisol) increases the sign of inflammation that will cause an acne outbreak.

  • The breakout zone:

Acne appears in a specific zone: around the chin and jawline. Why in this area? The excess hormones in the body stimulate the sebaceous glands, leading to breakouts in the lower part of the face, directly connected to the reproductive organs.

Interestingly, just as breakouts appear cyclically, they often come back to the same spots where the pores of the skin have already been enlarged by previous breakouts.



Adult acne, not so rare!


More and more women aged 25 and over are facing the war of breakouts.

According to studies, 41% to 54% of women are affected, with various scenarios: persistent acne since adolescence, late-onset acne that appeared for the first time in adulthood, or a relapse of acne that disappeared after adolescence and then reappeared in adulthood.


  • The type of blemish:

Unlike blackheads and whiteheads that dominate during adolescence, blemishes associated with hormonal or adult acne are rather painful cysts. It is a type of acne with an inflammatory component that evolves in episodes. They are microcysts already present under the skin, which, under the influence of inflammation, transform into cysts, pustules, and other nodules. Unfortunately, this type of acne can be more resistant to conventional treatments and may leave scars.
