    What about taking estrogen drops/oil. I think it’s natural and would
    increase the estrogen again to balance your hormones. I think my mom is
    taking them instead of some medication that she has to take for the rest of
    her life, which had major side effects.

    Hi Angie, do you think there is any connection between drinking milk and
    acne?

  • fab2263 says:

    Hi Angie, I cannot thank you enough for this video! I am 51 and
    experiencing breakouts on my chin that will not clear up with traditional
    treatments (salicylic acid, etc.). Everything that you tried , I have tried
    also. It is frustrating. I would love to try the Rx you are on but I read
    that there is a precaution for people with low blood pressure which I have.
    Nonetheless, I am going to see a dermatologist because nothing else has
    worked. Thank you again for sharing this video, you have really helped this
    menopausal sister out! ; )

    Great video Angie!!! Very well done and I’m sure it helps a lot of people
    to know they are not alone in this! Hugs, xox Colleen :)

    Hi Angie….first of all you have great informative videos! Pertaining to
    this video let me give you some background info on my situation. I’m 38
    years old and I believe I am suffering from hormonal acne because I only
    get breakouts on my chin. I am currently on tetracycline because I also
    have a disease called Hidradenitis Suppurativa, which is my sweat glands do
    not work properly. It’s a very debilitating disease. My dermatologist
    diagnosed me, however she didn’t prescribe the tetracycline. My OBG/YN did.
    Do you think that the Retin-A would help me? I know you are not a doctor
    but you seem very knowledgeable and just wanted to get your opinion. Thank
    you!

    Here’s what I did for exactly the same condition…I’m 55 🙂 (I’m already
    on Tazorac, glycolic, topical vitC, and keep my skin scrupulously
    exfoliated. Also have a very clean paleo diet.) Went to the health food
    store and consulted with the naturopath, who gave me a supplement called
    EstroSense (not affiliated). Keeps the liver clear and balances the
    Estrogen/Progesterone hormones. Nothing has ever worked like this for me.
    Took about 2-3 weeks to see improvement, but boy, did I see improvement.
    I take 2 capsules divided, a day. Anywho…this was my solution. Best of
    luck to you!

  • MsTipsycolada says:

    Oh please don’t tell me I have this to look forward to? I had horrible
    hormonal acne in my early 30’s and had to go on Accutane.I haven’t had a
    zit since and I don’t want to have to take it again because it’s toxic.

    thanks Angie I love these well done! 🙂 xo Lori

  • Rachel Marie says:

    My skin is the worst it’s ever been. I’ve been on Spironolactone but I
    think it quit working. I just recently used some Benzoyl Peroxide and it
    burned the crap out of my face. Now I’m dealing with the burns healing. I
    want my period back!

  • Ellen Bartsch says:

    Thanks so much I could hug you! It all made sense.. Lost my uterus at 26 &
    suffered periodic ovarian cysts. So I’m now sure she suffers too. You made
    me think & Google. I will be passing on the medication info to her. XO

    Thankfully my face actually got better during and after menopause. I swear
    by my tarte maracuja oil. For some reason that serum seems to help clear
    my complexion.

  • msflipflopsandpearls says:

    Angie, I am going through the same thing, I didn’t want to do the
    antibiotic either as I already have low blood pressure so couldn’t do that
    either. I am doing the Retin A but nothing has helped. I will continue to
    watch as always and hope that that this works for you. If I come up with
    anything I will let you know. Got to keep a sense of humor with aging for
    sure lol. 🙂 x Carolyn

    Hi Angie, well cystic ACNE, my enemy since I was teenager! At that time
    (i’m 60 now) the therapy was not advanced, and therefore with my DIY and a
    stupid beautician, my scars become worst..But at the age of 54 when I get
    in menopause, I was recommended to go under low-dosage hormone
    treatment..and it was fine,,and it’s still fine.I do my checking every 6
    months/1 year, and it’s OK…my skin getting better, no more acne, but
    still some few cysts, while scars are fading with microdermabrasion, and
    anti-age routine (retin A, Aha & Vit C…our best friend!)…in few word, I
    should thank my gynecologist and dermatologist. Willing to learn how you
    therapy will work. And I wish it works! Have a great w/e xoxo

    Love your videos. Thanks so much.

  • Alison Self says:

    Thank you so much for this video!!! I also have hormonal acne. I had
    perfect skin all through my teens and twenties and rarely had break outs.
    Then, a few months after I gave birth, I started breaking out horribly. It
    was all from the cheeks down and mostly under my chin. I am a very happily
    married, secure woman, but it really hurt my self esteem too. Trying to
    lose the baby weight plus the acne made me feel so ugly I wouldn’t even try
    with make up because I thought it was useless. My husband would always
    reassure me, but I didn’t feel good in my skin. Finally I saw a
    dermatologist and took antibiotics until I got it under control. Now I
    don’t take a prescription, but I use a salicylic acid face wash everyday. I
    kind of hate it because it’s drying, but every time I stop using it, I
    start breaking out again. I love your videos! Your so relatable, I am 31,
    but still get great tips from your videos. Plus I believe in wrinkle
    prevention and believe it’s never too early to take good care of your skin!

  • Sunny Valentino says:

    Suki skin care is the best

  • gmillhouse says:

    Are you still loving the CC cream from IT cosmetics? What is your opinion
    of the type of finish it gives? I do not like dewy and I think I remember
    you saying you do not either.

  • Susan Buchanan says:

    Oh Angie…I’m 58 and I have gone through the same thing you are going
    through.
    I had clear skin forever until this fall. Although it very well may be
    menopausal acne you have, I can’t say 100% that is my story. One thing that
    causes terrible breakouts is soap left on the skin.Since I use a Clarisonic
    I was really getting my skin clean…but what about rinsing afterward???
    THAT was my problem.
    I did not get the cleanser off my face properly. Now I do, & SUDDENLY, no
    breakouts. I just had to mention this to you. 🙂 You look beautiful and I
    see your cheeks are plump like a young girl…yep, new Olay Cream your
    using I bet!
