Hormones and Skin

Ladies, this one is for you!

Your skin can tell you many things about the way your hormones are functioning. For example, acne might be triggered for a variety of reasons, such as puberty, menses, post-partum, coming off birth control pills, and so much more. Excessive dry skin is sometimes caused by menopause or hypothyroidism. Yellow and pale skin might be a sign of a thyroid dysfunction, and those dark circles under your eyes are often a sign of adrenal exhaustion or elevated cortisol levels. Whatever the circumstances, always keep in mind that your hormones are messengers coordinating the function of cells, tissues, and organs throughout your body and communicating that information to you. … Continue reading

The regulation of this hormone is also essential in the body’s sleep-wake cycle, metabolism of fat, immune system and inflammatory response.

During and after surgery, the human body goes through a stress response that affects the endocrine, cardiovascular, and immune system, to name a few. While this stress response is natural and helps with the body’s healing process, too much stress can be straining to our physiology. … Continue reading
