The Missing Link to Skin Vitality

Everyone wants healthy, radiant skin, but popular cosmetic cover-ups and anti-aging creams that work on the surface don't get to the root of stubborn skin problems.

Diet, stress, sleep loss and sun damage are several obvious factors that influence how skin looks. Far less obvious - and often overlooked - is the hormonal connection that is vital to youthful skin.

How Hormone Imbalance Impacts Skin

Diets high in sugars and refined carbs stimulate overproduction of the androgens (testosterone and DHEA), triggering acne and oily skin, and potentially excess facial or body hair. High cortisol stress hormones also disrupt with skin rashes and breakouts.

Likewise stress, smoking, junk food and lack of sleep can accelerate hormone losses, making us look old before our time.

With such a high concentration of hormone receptors in the skin - especially on the face - it's no wonder that signs of premature aging are more obvious there.

Skin Vitality is dimished by imbalances of:

  • Estradiol (E2)
  • Estriol (E3)
  • Progesterone (Pg)
  • Testosterone (T)
  • DHEA-S (DS)
  • Diurnal Cortisol (Cx4)
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
  • Vitamin D (D2, D3)

Bad skin? It could be your hormones

Do the following symptoms sound familiar?

If two or more of these symptoms persist, testing can identify whether it's a hormone imbalance.

  • Increased wrinkles
  • Decreased skin elasticity 
  • Acne/oily skin
  • Melasma (dark patches)
  • Hirsutism (excessive hair)
  • Male pattern baldness
  • Puffy eyes/face; dry, thinning skin/hair/eyebrows; brittle nails
  • Skin rashes/eczema
  • Sleep deprivation

Simple testing can reveal whether hormones are secretly sabotaging your skincare efforts.
