We see a lot of misinformation on breakouts all the time and something that continues to pop up is #hormonal #breakouts and their nature.

To clarify and help you with this issue: ALL BREAKOUTS ARE HORMONAL! Not a single person on this earth that is prone to breakouts can say their breakouts are not hormonal.

What does that really mean for you and #clearskin and who cares?

When there is an over abundance of certain #hormones, your #pores start to produce oil. Think #oilyskin or combo.

When this oil in your pores is produced, it mixes with the bacteria already found on your face and creates a clogged pore. The more your hormones increase internally, the more this oil produces in your pores leading to more breakouts. This is where cystic acne comes in. More hormones produced = more oil produced in your pores, which fills up your tiny pore, which is easily clogged. This is true for breakouts, blackheads, tiny white bumps, and cystic breakouts.

So one of the keys to getting breakouts under control is to balance the oil. However, you do not want to strip the skin because all it does is retaliate and produce more oil.

By applying oils to your skin, you trick it into thinking it has enough oil and doesn't produce more oil even when hormones increase! This is ideal because acne causing bacteria doesn't spread in plant oils, only your naturally produced oil. You don't need much oil either, just enough to make skin feel hydrated.

If you have ever used astringent skincare or oil free products and all it did was dry you out and make you oily by mid-day, the above is why this is happening and why you seem to get nowhere.
