    Androgens, or sex hormones, play a critical role in acne on many levels. Simply put, if there are no androgens, there is no acne. However, androgens alone are not the sole cause of acne since many other factors are also involved, such as bacterial overgrowth, skin cell differentiation, and skin cell stickiness.

    Hormones sure do have a larger role in skin health. They infact determine the biological changes in the human body and hence the birth of acne. For medicinal cures go for good medicines.

    Do you eat a healthy diet? If you are living junk food or fast food, it will not help your acne. A good healthy diet, plenty of fruit and vegetables is most suitable for your skin, but also your health. Although most studies did not show the link between the food and the cause of acne, it has been found that low sugar content may be a better treatment of acne.

    There are two ways these hormones affect acne. In some people, too much hormone is circulating in the blood, therefore triggering acne. In most acne patients, however, there are normal blood levels of androgens, while there is an increased and inappropriate responsiveness of the pilosebaceous unit to a normal amount of circulating androgen. This means that even though all the blood tests come back normal, your body is overly accepting of the androgens that are circulating in the blood. The end result is acne.

    Found this helpful information about Acne from Dr Kulreet Chaudhary

    From an ayurvedic perspective, the health of your skin is directly related to your diet. In fact, one of the reasons that stress can cause sudden and severe acne outbreaks is because of the immediate impact that stress has on your digestive system. To help improve your digestion, follow the general dietary guidelines listed below. Remember, this is a long-term commitment and you have to keep these recommendations in mind for the long haul.

    - Eat warm, soft, cooked foods.
    - Avoid raw vegetables and salads.
    - Drink beverages at room temperature or warm.
    - Avoid cold drinks and frozen desserts (such as ice cream, popsicles, frozen yogurt, etc.).
