Hormonal Acne is normally seen in females aged eighteen to fifty, though there are some cases where acne and breakouts begin later in life, typically along the chin and neck area. These pimples are inflamed, red, and lie underneath the skin, and can be difficult to treat.
Why breakouts now? Hormones are the leading cause of breakouts, not particularly an increased or decreased amount in hormones, but an unstable combination. Changes in hormones can happen at anytime, dealing with the results is the hard part. No worries! Skintap has found the best treatment options for your needs.
