Hormone Harmony: Unlock Radiant Skin With These Tips

Hormone Harmony: Unlock Radiant Skin With These Tips

When it comes to healthy skin that glows from within there’s more to the story than just your skincare products. Since hormones play a major role in everything from breakouts to skin elasticity and hydration, learning how to properly balance your hormones can make a big difference in skin health. Whether you’re pregnant, experiencing PMS, or going through menopause or perimenopause, we’ve got you covered with hormone balancing tips to help you unlock your most radiant skin. 

Focus on sleep quality

When it comes to keeping hormones balanced, sleep is really the foundation upon which all other habits are built. Without adequate sleep our circadian rhythms get thrown out of balance, which can impact hormones throughout the rest of our bodies. Focus on getting 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep every night to balance hormones and keep inflammation in check. You can try creating your own bedtime routine which may include a warm bath, meditation or gentle yoga, journaling, and a cuppa our ultra calming TLC Tea

Support liver detoxification

Our liver is responsible for breaking down and eliminating excess hormones from the body to keep us feeling balanced. Brassica veggies such as Brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale, and cauliflower contain compounds called glucosinolates that help detox excess estrogen in particular, making them a great addition to a hormone-balancing diet. Aim for at least one cup per day. 

Other helpful herbs and foods that support phase one and two liver detoxification include apples, pears, berries, turmeric, ginger, lemons, leafy greens, and beets. We also formulated the perfect gentle Everyday Detox tea loaded with functional herbs like dandelion and milk thistle to help support digestion and liver function.

Skip sugar and refined carbs 

Not only are these foods devoid of nutrients, they are also loaded with simple sugars that can cause a spike in blood sugar. This spike promotes the release of excess insulin, which can be an inflammatory hormone that triggers excess oils in the skin. These inflammatory chemicals can increase redness, irritation and sensitive skin. 

Chronic spikes and crashes in blood sugar also wreaks havoc on hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline and in some cases can even impact sex hormones such as testosterone, as is the case in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Excess insulin in the body can trigger the ovaries to convert estrogen to testosterone, which can lead to a host of issues including acne. Focus on a whole foods diet that includes protein, healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, and fibre with every meal and snack. 

Our Pure Radiance Tea contains green tea and moringa which help keep blood sugar stable, while our Rise and Shine Tea contains cinnamon, which can help increase insulin sensitivity.

Use hormone-free skincare

Did you know that our skin can absorb up to 60-100% of the chemicals in your beauty products. The exact amount that is absorbed depends on several factors including whether you have any broken skin, the size of the molecule, or if your skin barrier function is compromised due to conditions such as acne, eczema, and rosacea.

If you’re regularly using beauty products that contain hormone-disrupting chemicals such as phthalates, parabens, pesticides, synthetic fragrances, and preservatives then it can negatively impact your hormone balance and skin health. Luckily, every product we create is free from all the above chemicals and more! We formulate each item with functional ingredients to support skin health and help you glow, naturally!
