Post-Pill Acne

Have you been scared to come off the pill in fear of how your skin will react? It's very common to be prescribed the contraceptive pill to help with skin. However, it's not actually helping your skin, it is just putting a temporary bandaid on an underlying issue. The synthetic hormones in the contraceptive pill decrease the amount of sebum (oil) our skin produces. To compensate, our bodies then increase the amount of sebum we produce. This means that when we come off the pill we are producing a lot more sebum than is required. This combined with your ovaries being reactivated to make more androgens (hormones) makes the perfect concoction for acne. Want to learn more?
