    Acne, which is caused due to hormonal imbalances, is termed as hormonal acne. During menstruation, hormonal fluctuations are frequent, which may lead to excessive oil production in the skin pores. This leads to hormonal acne. Other reasons which can lead to hormonal imbalances are polycystic ovarian syndrome and increased androgen levels.

    It generally occurs in different areas of your face such as forehead, cheeks, jawline, chin, and nose.

    Some of the below-discussed supplements can help you get rid of it. However, it is better if you consult your doctor before consuming them.

    Maca root

    Roots of the maca herbs may help in stabilizing the hormonal imbalances during the menstrual cycle. It can act as a natural hormonal regulator by directly impacting your endocrine system. You can consume it daily, but you should consume it 7-10 days before your menstruation.


    Zinc is also an essential supplement that may help you in getting rid of hormonal acne. It helps in halting the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) hormone, which is also responsible for hormonal acne. DHT hormones generally clog your skin pores.

    Evening primrose oil
    If your acne is in the form of cysts, then evening primrose oil might be of your rescue. It consists of GLA and omega-6 fatty acids with anti-inflammatory properties, which help in strengthening your skin.


    The antioxidant properties of pycnogenol protect collagens from free radical damage. Collagens are responsible for healthy and durable skin. Which also prevents the formation of acne.


    Glisodinsupplement is an antioxidant enzyme that also helps in fighting free radicals in your body that prevents acne formation. Free radicals in your body cause inflammation, which leads to oxidative stress that incurs harmful effects on your body. These enzymes are also more powerful than natural ones as they have the power to regenerate more numbers of enzymes, which stays for a long time in your body.


    Sometimes stress also leads to hormonal imbalances leading to acne. For this ashwagandha may be a useful supplement. This supplement may regulate your adrenal system that maintains the hormonal balance in your body. Generally, it is an antioxidant.

    Some natural remedies

    Apart from supplements, you can also go for some natural remedies.

    Tea tree oil

    Tea tree oil helps in reducing the inflammation, which might indirectly halt the formation of acne. This oil is also a common ingredient in various skin care products. Before using it, make sure that you dilute it with any of the different carrier oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, and jojoba oil. Direct application of this oil might irritate your skin.

    Green tea

    Green tea is also a natural antioxidant that fights inflammation in your body, which may lead to the deformation of your acne.
