To identify hormonal acne, look for signs such as deep, cystic pimples that are concentrated in the jawline and chin area. These pimples are often painful and can take longer to heal than typical acne.
To treat hormonal acne, start by making changes to your skincare routine. This includes using a gentle cleanser, exfoliating regularly to remove dead skin cells, and applying a light moisturizer. It is also important to use products that contain salicylic acid, as this ingredient can help to unclog pores and reduce inflammation. Clear Out Extra Strength Clarifying Lotion contains 2% acne-fighting salicylic acid that helps to exfoliate the skin and break down sebum, with pore-purging power to finish off remaining clogs.
