As if menstrual cramps weren’t bad enough, getting hormonal acne on top of cramps is just plain cruel. If you suffer from hormonal acne and don’t even know where to begin to find some relief, Dr. Gary J. Price has a few helpful tips.
Start With Skin Care
If you haven’t already invested in some acne-fighting skin care, then that’s where you should start. Buy a face scrub, spot treatment, and cleanser that contain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. These two ingredients work to dry out your blemishes before they get worse. As a tip, start using these skin care products about a week before you know you’re going to start your period.
Get Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are another thing to get every month or so. Chemical peels work to get rid of acne-causing bacteria at the surface and help to prevent it from coming back. Speak with Dr. Price about what types of chemical peels you should get and how often you’ll need them.
One of the worst parts about hormonal acne is the scars they leave each and every month. One method that Dr. Gary J. Price uses to get rid of acne scars is called the Parisian Peel Microdermabrasion which helps to get rid of a bunch of skin blemishes including acne scars.
If your hormonal acne is making you feel even more frustrated every month, let Dr. Gary J. Price help you find some relief. With a combination of skin care, chemical peels, and even microdermabrasion, he can help to stabilize the hormones in your skin.
