If you already have acne or are prone to having acne, hormonal fluctuations can also make this worse, particularly on the lower part of your face.
Botanycl’s team said: “Hormone fluctuations may aggravate acne issues by increasing overall skin inflammation, oil, clogged skin cells in hair follicles and production of acne-causing bacteria.
Foods can also trigger hormonal acne, so you might want to lay off the junk food if you’re having a breakout!
The experts said: “It is said that sugary foods, carbs, and dairy are a trigger to hormonal acne although this is not a fact.
“It is best to eat whole, natural foods to help balance out your skin and not worsen any skin problems you may already have. Sugary food may cause an increase in acne.”
