The Best Ways to Decrease Harmful Estrogen
Estrogens are necessary hormones for normal physiological function and health. However, when even slightly elevated beyond normal ranges, their effects resemble that of a stress hormone. In fact, many toxic effects of estrogen were known by the early 1940s and more are continuing to be discovered. Everything from cancer, to abnormal blood clotting, hair loss, edema, hypothyroid, PCOS and infertility are known to be caused by excess estrogen.
How Estrogen Causes Wrinkles & Ages Your Skin
We all know that some degree of skin aging is inevitable. Yet, most of us don't realize that it doesn’t have to be drastic. Certain factors are known to accelerate imbalances within our bodies and cause stress, which results in visible aging signs such as wrinkles, loss of elasticity, laxity, and rough appearance.
How To Prevent Oxidative Stress In Aging Skin

Oxidative stress is an important part of the biological aging process and plays a major role in skin aging. As we have touched on in previous articles, there are two major types of skin aging: intrinsic and extrinsic aging. These are both exacerbated by oxidative stress. 

Of the two forms of skin aging, extrinsic aging is most driven by oxidative stress. Extrinsic aging refers to the aging of the outermost skin layer (the epidermis), normally caused by external factors such as UV radiation, environmental toxins, and diet. 

Hormonal Balance for Beautiful Skin
 When it comes to skincare, there is a lot to consider: What topical treatments to use? What is the optimal diet? Should I use supplements or not? ... and so much more. While many are aware of the damaging effects of the more obvious poor choices – there is often an overlooked, underlying factor that determines whether something is “healthy” or not. That underlying factor is the hormonal effects of any given activity. Proper hormone balance is a dominant factor in determining health, especially the health of our skin and hair. There are various hormonal conditions that set the stage for skin diseases like chronic acne, eczema, dry skin, hair loss, and wrinkles. Some hormones are anti-aging, protective against inflammation and oxidation, while others contribute to disease. 
The Harmful Beauty Effects of Estrogen
In an earlier post, we talked all about the damaging effects of stress hormone cortisol. In this post, we will focus on the harmful beauty effects of estrogen, another stress hormone.
Optimizing Testosterone for Skin Health

Little attention has been given to the importance of adequate levels of testosterone, known as the “male hormone”. In this blog post, we specifically dig into testosterone’s relation to skin aging. 

Truth be told, testosterone is not a gender-specific hormone. It is a necessary androgen steroid for optimal metabolic function and well-being. It has been well documented that this important hormone decreases with age in both men and women. When it comes to skin, lower testosterone levels correspond with a decrease in overall skin health, density, and elasticity.

How to Naturally Treat Hormonal Acne

There are a variety of acne types and postulated causes, however, at the root of them all is an imbalance of hormones. Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body.

In this article, we will be taking a look at some of the key hormones known to contribute to acne and how to balance them naturally.
