In this bog I am presenting the two possible causes for adult acne. The most common form of acne in adult women is hormone inbalance. Breakouts and cysts most often appears around the mouth, jawline, and chin. It is typically cystic and quite painful to touch and gets worse before and during ovulation and menstruation. This type of acne often goes hand in hand with terrible PMS symptoms and irregular periods.
Another problem is that if your immune system is debilitated, 1 week before your period your body is the most susceptible to infections, and the acne can be a form of bacterial infection.
All of the following methods are to maintain healthy hormones level, detoxify and build a strong liver, build a healthy gut, and improve your immune system.
- WHAT CAUSES FEMALE HORMONAL ACNE?
Female hormonal acne is caused by estrogen dominance. This creates an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone due to frequent contact with environmental or dietary xeno/phyto estrogens like plastic and soy products. This is most often where the imbalance begins.
Other factors that can disrupt hormones include:
- Eating a diet high in processed foods
- Consuming too much sugar
- Taking the pill/using other forms of oral contraception (this can also include shots, implants, rings, IUD, and the morning after pill)
- Chronic stress
- Poor sleep
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Not eating enough calories
- Substance1 abuse
- Using toxic beauty care products that inhibit hormone communication
- An overburdened liver
- Thyroid problems
- Insulin resistance
- And many more!
Scientists have long known that cruciferous vegetables help maintain healthy hormone levels and promote healthy DNA.
Food: Leafy Cruciferous Vegetables
Kale, cabbage and collard greens are usually easy on the budget and easy to cook. They can be added to stews or soups or lightly sauteed. Try them in pastas or casseroles. You can make them more appealing with herbs, salt and pepper. Steam them for an easy side dish or boost the nutrition of your main dish by adding them chopped during the cooking process.
Special Occasion Cruciferous Vegetables
Bok choy, Chinese cabbage, watercress and arugula may not be used as commonly, but they are also considered cruciferous vegetables. Watercress and arugula can be used in salads. Bok choy and Chinese cabbage can be lightly sauteed in olive oil with a little garlic or can be put in a tasty stir-fry. They can also be used in soups and salads.
Cruciferous Root Vegetables
Some root vegetables are also cruciferous. They include radishes, turnips and parsnips. These vegetables are stronger in taste and can be mixed in a stir-fry with other vegetables or lightly steamed. They make a great side dish or a late addition to soups.

Diindolymethane, or DIM, is a great supplement that aids the liver in dealing with bad/excess estrogens. It will help you detox the bad estrogens to make room for the good estrogen.
You can also start eating one raw carrot a day to help eliminate excess estrogen in your body. It contains a special fiber that attaches itself to excess estrogen where it is then harmlessly eliminated from the body through your stool. it’s a super non-invasive way to help balance estrogen dominance.
Another non-invasive method for hormone balance I want to mention is Seed Cycling. This is where you eat two different seeds for each phase of your cycle in order to encourage balance. It’s worked wonders for tons of women and is a safe method to try out.
