You've probably had a hormonal breakout before, or maybe you've suffered for years with mysterious "inflammatory" concerns, or maybe you're dealing with hormonal changes throughout the years.


What if we told you that your skin is a bona fide hormone factory?


Yes, really. Estrogen. Testosterone. Progesterone. All being made right there.


As you can imagine, if this hormonal balance gets out of whack right there in your skin, hormonal skin chaos ensures – breakouts, redness, dryness or oiliness, barrier breakdown, and more.

This article will answer the question "how do I rebalance my hormonal skin issues?" Plus, you'll learn about things that make it worse, and some facts about a new powerhouse natural ingredient.


Let's get into it!

Why Do Skin-Level Hormones Matter?

Simply put, your hormones act as little cellular messengers that tell the skin what to do. They're the unsung heroes of everything.

These messages can be either negative or positive! For example, they can trigger inflammation in cystic acne, or they can trigger the production of collagen, which helps slow down aging. There are hundreds of processes that hormones are involved in when it comes to skin.

The trouble comes when these signals get interrupted, out of balance, or overreactive.

Since your skin makes hormones right there, these effects happen in real time.

Without these hormones, your skin wouldn't know what to do. So the key is using products that work with your skin and this often-ignored ecosystem of skin-level hormones.

5 Powerful Effects of Skin-Level Hormones

1. Managing Inflammation

Cortisol and estrogen play a crucial role in regulating inflammatory responses, helping to reduce redness and swelling. By maintaining balanced levels of these hormones, you can naturally soothe inflammation and promote a calm, clear complexion.

2. Collagen Production

Estrogen and growth hormones are vital in stimulating collagen synthesis, which keeps your skin firm and youthful. Collagen levels naturally start dropping at age 30, so balanced skin-level estrogen helps ensure that collagen production remains as steady as possible over time, preventing wrinkles and maintaining elasticity. 

3. Healing and Regeneration

Testosterone and growth hormones are key to efficient skin healing and regeneration, accelerating the repair of wounds and damage. Balanced levels of these hormones support the skin's natural ability to rejuvenate, leading to a more resilient and vibrant appearance.


4. Oil Production (acne!)

Androgens, particularly testosterone, directly influence sebum production, which can either cause or prevent acne. By achieving hormonal balance, you can regulate oil levels and keep your skin clear and free from breakouts.

5. Homeostasis and Balance

Hormones like thyroid hormones and corticotropin-releasing hormone are essential for maintaining homeostasis, ensuring your skin stays balanced and healthy. Equilibrium in these hormone levels supports overall skin wellness, helping to harmonize moisture levels and pH balance for a glowing complexion.

These are just 5 of the most impressive things that skin-level hormones control! These 5 things can manifest in over 50 different skin concerns, from dryness to oiliness, acne to psoriasis, and aging to eczema. Take it from Natalie C., who saw for herself the effects of skincare formulated with hormonal balance in mind:

"How Do I Rebalance Skin-Level Hormone Issues?"

The most important factor is your lifestyle and diet, but we all know it's impossible to be perfect there! And as a result, your skin stays inconsistent and isn't the skin of your dreams.

This is why it's crucial to use skincare products that work with your skin's biology and endocrine system. Many current skincare brands use endocrine-disrupting ingredients, along with ingredients that only mask concerns instead of getting to the source of cosmetics concerns.

Using cell-communicating and hormone-balancing holistic skincare is the best way to go, along with what you may already be doing on the lifestyle and diet side.

Our patent-pending Heart to Heart Complex® is formulated around powerful broccoli-derived compound and famed hormone wellness supplement, DIM. It is known to improve skin-level hormone balance and key markers of improved appearance, such as collagen production and reducing inflammation.
