BYE HORMONAL ACNE👋🏻
i struggled with hormonal acne around my neck, jawline, and chin for 4+ years.
i was told it was from sweaty workouts, bacteria, stress, bla bla bla. but the ONLY thing that really changed my skin for good was shifting my diet. this was during the height of my PCOS and it really effected my self esteem. i couldn’t leave the house without coverup and nothing was helping.
everybody’s skin and genetics are different, but what worked for me was doing a 21 day elimination diet to figure out what my triggers were. i cut out coffee, processed sugar, gluten, alcohol, dairy, soy and high carbohydrate fructose like bananas/mangoes/pineapple and my skin cleared up pretty quickly. now, i pretty much avoid all those foods to keep my skin looking and feeling 💯
i continue to use DIET to balance out my hormones and that helped me gain a sense of confidence and knowledge that i have more control over my body than i once thought. I hope this post helps give hope to those who might also be struggling with hormonal acne..and remember, you have the power to change your skin! #hormonalacne #PCOSawareness
