Hormones regulate and influence healthy function throughout your body, but you might be surprised by how much influence they have on your skin as well. Hormones control the chemicals your body produces to keep your skin healthy. The problem, however, is that hormone production can change radically over time, especially as you age, so it’s important to understand these effects and learn how to manage them. This way, you can keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful, no matter what.
Estrogen levels increase during puberty and pregnancies, but for women they significantly drop over time, starting in the 30s and 40s and continuing through menopause. That’s when wrinkles start showing up and your skin may feel dry and thin. Estrogen imbalances in either direction can also contribute to discoloration and problems with other spots. Darker spots or patches around your cheeks and eyes that appear like this are called melasma.
Testosterone is a significant hormone in skin care, too, even for women. This hormone helps your skin produce natural oils, or sebum, to protect your skin and keep it looking bright and moisturized. The problem is that too much testosterone means more oil, which can lead to acne-breakouts or to uncomfortably oily skin. Different stages of life can lead to testosterone imbalances in both men and women.
Another hormone that can have dramatic effects on your skin is cortisol. Your body produces cortisol when you’re under stress. Too much of this hormone will lead to over-production of sebum and acne issues. It can also mess with your health in other ways, so you’ve got plenty of reasons to try to keep stress levels under control.
