Acne can be caused by many things, however it is generally a combination of factors:
- Hormone imbalance
- Poor detoxification due to sluggish digestion and liver function
- Depleted immune system
- Diet and food choices
Many women find when they work out excessively and reduce body fat, oestrogen can convert to testosterone, causing male type acne along jawline and even on the shoulders.
Often, the oral contraceptive pill is prescribed and whilst effective, does not address the root cause. Artificially manipulating hormones does not resolve an existing imbalance or the reason for it.
