Hormonal Acne & How I Got Rid Of It

Just when you thought acne issues are gone away for good after you reach adulthood… Guess what? It comes back in a big way. Painful, unsightly pimples that come out at the most inconvenient time, and do nothing but cause you to apply heaps of concealer to cover them up. Hormonal acne is not something to be tolerated with, and here’s how I got rid of mine for good.

The thing about hormonal acne is, well, they’re hormonal. The type of acne that comes up from the fluctuations of the hormones estrogen and progesterone that most dermatologists believe how it starts, although the true cause of this type of acne is yet to be determined.

How To Know If The Acne You Have Is Hormonal?

The first thing is, if you still have acne past the teen years, that acne is usually hormonal, and it’s likely to attack your skin in early adulthood, where the hormone cycle is the most active (from menstruation, pregnancy, and childbirth). And, if you’re not pregnant, chances are the acne will come up during ‘that time of the month’. Neat.

Plus, a telltale sign that hormonal acne is happening is if the location of the pimples occurs on the chin and jawline and may run towards the neck, where the oil glands are prominent and the pores are enlarged; creating hormonal acne.

So, what did I do to get rid of it for good?

After lots of trial and error (and tears) finding the solution just right for my hormonal acne issues, I found the Ageless Collection from IMAGE Skincare. After reading countless reviews on how it treats hormonal acne effectively, I decided to give it a try. Who knows, maybe these just might work for my skin!

Ageless Total Facial Cleanser First, I use the Ageless Total Facial Cleanser as the first step of my skin care routine. The product is formulated with glycolic acid and green tea extract and the stuff is powerful in removing makeup and product build-up from my skin. It also gently exfoliates and cleanses the skin. Not to mention the menthol added to the cleanser creates a tingling, fresh feeling too!

Ageless Total Anti-Aging Serum Next, I used their Anti-Aging Serum; a huge help thanks to phytonutrients, stem cells, and vitamin C. The ingredients work to exfoliate my skin and heal acne, soothing the inflamed skin until it clears up. Within just a few days, I can see the difference; my skin looks brighter and firmer, and the hormonal acne comes up a bit until it eventually fades away.

Ageless Total Repair Crème I use this as a night cream to deeply rejuvenate my skin, attacking the core issue of my hormonal acne. The cream contains encapsulated retinol that gently exfoliates the skin and stimulates the skin to produce new cells and collagen production. Over time, any inflamed, blemished skin gets healed.

Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque And lastly, as a weekly intensive treatment, I use the Total Resurfacing Masque. The stuff it’s made of (L-Ascorbic acid, hyaluronic acid, and a blend of Glycolic acid, Lactic acid, and Salicylic acid to name a few) really dissolves the topmost layer of my skin, clears up my pores, and heals my acne until it’s gone for good.


I know it may be a bit pricey for some, but I promise it’s worth it! If you want to try it out before committing to the full-size products, they do offer travel/trial kits. I haven’t found them on their website, but you can click here to find an authorized reseller and they usually carry them!

If my hormonal acne issues can clear up for good with this product line, I’m sure it can for you too!
