Why Does My Acne Get Worse Before My Period?

Why Does My Acne Get Worse Before My Period?
If you have already answered this then I apologized, I didnt see it anywhere.

Does the answer to this question fall along the same lines of why people have acne once they are through puberty?:

("It is the imbalance of stress hormones from endocrinological stress that causes acne. That is why it shows up at puberty when the most dramatic alteration of endocrinological function in our lives takes place.")

In other words, due to the hormonal stuff going on before menstration added to the imbalance from the flight or fight resposne this might cause more acne to appear at this time? I hope this makes sense. Could you please expound on this? I'm always getting new pimples it seems, so its kind of hard to tell if I do break out more around my period, but I think I do. I know some women do for sure.....

I've read that taking about 50 mg of B6 helps for premenstrual breakouts. Taking a whole complex would probably be wiser.

Congratulations, Sue.

This is exactly as I understand it.

Wellness works by widening the distance between where the person is living and the edge of their cliff to that something like a "hormonal cyclic change" will not be enough to unbalance them.

I think I'm dangling by my little finger. :)
