In women, blemishes can start around puberty and last throughout adulthood. At all times, blemishes are related to hormonal fluctuations in the body and, during adulthood, adult hormonal blemishes are mainly associated with the menstrual cycles.

Skin Lesions

Comedo – Comedo (whiteheads or blackheads). The comedo is a common basic skin lesion, essentially a blocked pore. If the clogged pore stays under the skin, it’s called a closed comedo and forms a white bump or whitehead. Blackheads are comedos that open up and appear blackish on the surface of the skin. This black colour is not due to dirt, but due to the reaction of oxygen with the excess oil.
Papule – Papules are red bumps on the skin that occur once a comedo becomes inflamed. They are usually tender.
Nodules – These are more serious skin lesions. They lodge deeper in the skin, are painful, and can cause scarring.
Cysts – Like nodules, these lesions are deep within in the skin, painful, filled with pus and can cause scarring.

Depending on the type of skin problem, PCOS blemish treatment or hormonal blemish treatments for women can be very effective.

Types of Blemish Problems

Teenage Blemishes

When hormones start surging in the body during puberty, about 90% of teenagers begin to develop Blemish problems. Testosterone is one of the main hormones involved in puberty, in both sexes, and its conversion to DHT is linked directly to this problem skin condition. Excessive oil production within the pores of the skin is caused by high levels of DHT from elevated testosterone levels. This excessive oil leads to clogging of the pores and comedos, which, in turn, leads to papules, pustules, nodules and, eventually, cysts.

Reducing DHT is the most important step in teenage Blemish treatment and solutions. Other women’s Blemish products open the pores and kill the bacteria but do nothing to address DHT, which is the underlying cause of Problem Skin. As the first Blemish product on the market that focuses on the root cause of these problems, PCOD Blemish treatment or Clearogen lowers DHT production, to normalise skin’s oil production, clear existing blemishes and fight future breakouts.

If steps are not taken to treat teen hormonal Blemishes, it can result in permanent scarring. Therefore, it’s extremely important to use a comprehensive Blemish treatment for adults, as soon as its signs appear. Clearogen is proven safe and effective in teenage Blemish treatments. It gently clears existing Blemish conditions and helps prevent future breakouts.

Adult Blemish Problems

Nearly half of all adult women experience mild to moderate Blemish problems, for which they will use various adult Blemish solution treatments, with mixed results.

Unbalanced hormone production during the menstrual cycle causes adult breakouts in women. Blemishes can occur before, during, or after menstruation, causing painful lesions along the jaw line, cheeks or chin. This is sometimes referred to as menstrual Blemishes.

Many women state that they never suffered from Blemishes in their teenage years, but, in their 30s or 40s develop Blemish for the first time. This is due to hormone changes in women during each decade of their life and, at times, due to starting or stopping birth control pills.

Clearogen Blemish treatment works for adult problem skin by using natural ingredients, proven to reduce high levels of the Blemish-causing DHT and normalising oil production. It also incorporates proven Blemish medications, to clear the existing Blemishes and prevent future outbreaks. Clearogen is the most effective way to treat adult female Blemishes, without the need for adding hormones or birth control.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or Polycystic Ovarian Disease

There is a high proportion of women who suffer from Blemishes during their menstrual cycle, while having menstrual cramping and bloating, along with Blemishes, excessive hair loss on the scalp and/or excessive hair growth on the face and body (hirsuitism). These women suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome/Disorder (PCOS/PCOD). As the name implies, there are many cysts surrounding the ovaries that are responsible for abnormal hormone production throughout the body. While this condition should be treated by their gynaecologist, with either birth control or spironolactone/Aldactone or cyperoterone acetate/Diane 35, Clearogen can be an additional PCOD Anti-Blemish treatment. Women with PCOD will greatly benefit from using Clearogen, as high DHT levels are responsible for all of their problem skin breakouts.
