Hormonal acne can feel like there's nothing you can do about it. There you are ready to go out to a fancy party and BOOM breakouts popping up along your jawline. You may have switched to an anti-inflammatory diet, and still experience those dreaded breakouts.
Totally been there!
When I was in the seventh grade my mom brought me to the makeup counter at the mall to buy the expensive concealer. She hoped to increase my self esteem from all the hormonal acne I got after getting my period.
Needless to say, the makeup didn't help much!
That's why I'm excited to share a supplement that has helped my hormonal acne tremendously!
It's called Diindolylmethane (DIM) and is made from cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and brussel sprouts. These vegetables help the body metabolize estrogen and balance our sex hormones. So if you're like me and notice acne breakouts before getting your period, you might love this too!
I tried getting more of these vegetables in my diet, and the only thing that really cleared up these breakouts has been DIM. It can also help with things like the premenstrual bloat and PMS.
DIM works by helping your body convert "bad" estrogen into "good", and blocking the enzyme that would turn testosterone into estrogen. I started taking 200-300mg of DIM for 2-3 months, then took a break. Now I cycle sync it and use it only during ovulation when estrogen reaches its peak.
Cheers to clear skin Bombshell!
