Impact of Hormones on the Skin

The skin is one of the largest and most vital organs in our bodies. Small glands on the surface of the skin called sebaceous glands release a vital oil called sebum, which helps to keep your skin healthy. Hormones such as oestrogen, progesterone, and testosterone cause skin to alter. It acts as a physical barrier, regulates your temperature, and allows fluids such as perspiration and oils to pass through. Skin will vary as we age and go through different phases, therefore there is no such thing as a typical normal condition. The outside climate, as well as illness or diseases, can cause changes in our skin. Many receptors in your skin respond to a variety of messages, including your hormones.
