What Is Hormonal Imbalance?
Hormones are secreted from the endocrine glands. Hormonal imbalance means either excessive or less secretion of a certain hormone. In women, hormonal imbalance can lead to early menopause, primary ovarian insufficiency, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance
Hormonal Imbalance can happen irrespective of your gender. Here are a few warning symptoms that indicate a hormonal imbalance:
- Sudden weight gain/loss

Why Does Hormonal Imbalance Affect Your Skin?
The sebaceous glands under your skin generate a natural oil called sebum, which is secreted through your skin’s pores. However, when there is an imbalance of androgens it leads to excess sebum production, which becomes the root cause of various skin issues. With age, the production of estrogen slows down. That’s why women who have entered menopause face skin aging and sensitivity.
