ARE YOUR DISTURBED HORMONES TRYING TO SPEAK THROUGH YOUR SKIN?

ACNE

Ever been to a doctor and heard him/ her saying you have hormonal imbalance while you were in your teens. I am sure that must have left you wondering what is that and normally when we say a Doctor quotes a person to have hormonal imbalance people always consider either it’s some kinda menstrual issue in females or libido constraint in males, which is not true.

ROLE OF HORMONES

Hormones are chemical messengers that are produced in organs such as the ovaries, adrenal gland, thyroid gland.

The hormonal changes are now these days being closely examined to reveal just how important they are to skin health especially in women.

Which hormones play an important role in maintaining healthy skin?

1] Estrogen  – plays an important role in skin thickness, skin aging, and maintaining skin’s  moisture also making  hair grow long and healthy [ in essence estrogen help our skin and hair remain youthful ]

2] Testosterone –  plays an important role in balancing the sebum secretion of the skin and providing all male attributes to our skin such as coarse and thick hair.

3] Thyroid Hormone –  plays an important role in maintaining the thermostat [ temperature of the skin].

Your hormones don’t just control how you feel – they can impact the health of your skin as well.

How do hormones impact our skin health?

Hormones play a key role in skin health.

Certain hormonal disorders manifest themselves in the skin and hair.

Hormone levels largely go unnoticed unless there is something off for instance

‘’one of the most amazing things about dermatology is that the skin can serve as a window into the health of the body “

Many endocrine and other internal disorders are diagnosed by dermatologists says Dr Hollmig .

our body responds to signals by our hormones and skin being the largest organ of our body.

Our skin can be a great representation of some hormonal imbalance going inside our body.

Let’s highlight a few now

5 ways in which Ayurveda can optimize your hormonal health giving you away a revitalized skin.

2] Switch to fruits – consume more fresh papaya, pomegranate or pineapple to balance hormones

 

3] Balance – Follow a balanced daily routine, significantly reducing stress

 

4]Rest – Try to rest at least one day a week
