Hormonal Acne 101- part 2
A nutritionally balanced diet can definitely help keep your skin healthy, but it is not the end all when it comes to abolishing acne breakouts. Most doctors don’t want to admit that acne is actually a GENETIC disease that is passed down. How often do you see parents that claim that they struggled with acne when they were their kids’ age? This hormonal sensitivity was passed down to their kids and that is the reason they are dealing with the same issues. It’s no different than a person with Tourrette’s syndrome having a hypersensitive to neurotransmitter Dopamine or a person with Wolf Parkinson White Syndrome having a sensitivity to stimulants like caffeine. People with acne just have a hyper sensitivity to the hormone DHT.
