“Acne has several causes including hormones, stress, genetics, high glycemic food, and possibly dairy products. Acne prone people should embrace oil-free or non-comedogenic products to minimize clogged pores and exacerbating acne and use topical retinoids diligently. Emepelle Serum is a great daytime regimen for perimenopausal women with acne concerns,as it is oil-free and designed specifically for estrogen deficient skin. Retriderm Mild is a high protein topical retinol helps with photo rejuvenation and acne.”

“Many women experience what they think is onset adult acne in their late 40s.

“Hormonal imbalances definitely affect the skin. Teenagers, as well as adult hormonal challenges, may lead to acne blemishes. To support the skin, I recommend the Acne Remedies Balancing Grape Seed Serum, which contains wild yam extract, a natural progesterone that balances and supports healthy tissue and clary oil, which improves skin challenged by hormonal imbalances. It also provides potent antioxidants and restores skin balance.”
