Help! Acne At 35?!?

We’ve been seeing a rash of acne in our clinic lately, and not of the adolescent type. PCOS, aka polycystic ovarian syndrome, can wreak havoc on your skin due to abnormally high levels of testosterone and other subtle hormonal imbalances. Since getting acne under control is an important step in achieving hormonal health in women with PCOS, we have been enlisting some important helpers on the road to clear and radiant skin.

1. Staying hydrated with plenty of filtered water throughout the day

2. Increasing intake of vitamin D

3. Using bioidentical progesterone cream if not on oral contraceptives

4. Scheduling regular facials and incorporating our clinic’s Clear Cell line of topical acne products

5. Using saw palmetto if T levels are high

Farrar Duro here, reproductive acupuncturist and founder & host of The PCOS Revolution, a cutting-edge podcast where I interview PCOS experts and cysters who share their pearls of wisdom on how to kick PCOS symptoms to the curb once and for all!

Why I Developed The PCOS Revolution

After nearly 20 years of working with PCOS in my own practice and kicking it to the curb personally, I felt compelled to offer more support for other women going through it. Just taking a supplement here and there or committing to an unsustainable diet is not the same as having a support system and tried-and-true plan in place. PCOS doesn’t have to be complicated, and you are not alone!

Listen every week as I interview doctors, psychologists, and cysters who share their struggles...let’s get started!
