Acne – does it ever go away?

leelou small

Sista, I feel your pain when it comes acne.  Been there, done that and from time to time, still got that – acne. (sigh) You feeling me?  As part of this months LIVE membership call, I dived real deep into the dark and gloomy depths of hormones, acne and skin issues that seem to arrive unannounced.  Acne can be relentless but the most difficult facet to treating acne is to get a hold on is the why.  Getting to the bottom of your skin woes certainly isn’t something that stops with the skin itself. Acne is a sure sign your hormones are unhappy and your gut health needs some TLC and that all starts from within.  Lotions and potions, come what may can only do so much with the root cause of the issue within.  To help you work out what the heck is going on, I wanted to share some of the key talking points that I shared to our little girl gang – aka The Wellness Collective Membership (you’re totally invited too).

Consider the timing.

It’s important to stop at work out when your acne shows up.  Here are the most common times;

Puberty

Pregnancy

During high stress

Post Travel

Peri-Menopause

But of course there are cycles within cycles and we need to be mindful how that affects our skin too!
