What are hormones? You don’t have to be confused anymore. Hormones are controlling our body. They are most important and powerful forces.
From beginning: the endocrine system regulates work of our hormones. The part of hormonal system is the largest organ – skin. Skin contains receptors that receive messages from endocrine system, nervous system and immune system. Hormonal imbalance might often cause of redness, swelling, sore and inflammation. There is two types of inflammation characteristic for skin condition:
Immunogenic inflammation is triggered by the immune system
Neurogenic inflammation activated by nervous system
Stress can also signal the body to release agents that can affect on inflamed skin, such as: itching, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, hypersensitivity,rosacea. Sensitive skin often can show damage around epidermal barrier, the protective skin outer layer. Negative reaction might be decline of lipids, ceramides, essential fatty acids and cholesterol.
Hormonal imbalance make the skin react also and special during the teenage years. The hormones give the signal for the body to grow and mature. Androgens, the male hormones found in both male and female gender can affect the sebaceous gland to produce more sebum. This might cause inflammation and then become Acne. To control and calm bacteria you can add to your skin care regimen ingredients such: Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide or Tea Tree.
Most hormonal imbalance time (around 50ty), when the chaos is going inside womens bodies, when the hot flashes, mood swings and many others symptoms occurs. That is life transition called menopause. That is natural way – unique experience.
