Your anti-acne facial care routine during puberty

How to combat signs of hormonal changes during puberty

During puberty we experience many important changes due to hormonal changes that are experienced during this stage of life.

More hair appears on the body, the voice changes, our height and we have emotional stampedes. But one of the most visible changes that usually worries the most during puberty is the appearance of sebum and acne on the face.

At the onset of puberty are due to increased secretion of androgens and estrogens. In the case of women, this increase in estrogens is produced by the gonodotrophin-releasing hormone GnRH, when it reaches the pituitary gland, it releases two other hormones into the bloodstream: Lutropin ( LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone( FSH).

In the face, the hormone that produces alterations during puberty is testosterone, an androgen hormone that produces a stimulation of the sebaceous glands , and therefore an increase in the production of sebum in the face, and as a result, acne.

The face with an overproduction of sebum have a tendency to have a skin with imperfections. We understand as imperfection , any alteration of the temporary face due to an imbalance in the skin , in this case during puberty.

Also as a care in your facial routine it is important to protect the lipid mantle and use soft products with antioxidant assets to combat free radicals that deteriorate the supporting structure of the skin.

The skins with acne at the beginning of puberty , we can not forget to apply sunscreen 50+ high spectrum, especially oil free and alcohol-free since removing the skin microflora in the long run can create a rebound effect. Although it is good to sunbathe, as it dries the grains and helps to control photosensitive bacterial overproduction, we have to avoid burns or prolonged exposure as the skin is inflamed and sensitive.

In case of severe acne, it is recommended before applying any product , consult the dermatologist.
