HOW DO HORMONES AFFECT YOUR SKIN?
Transgender hormonal treatments can have a massive impact on the skin’s appearance and health. Increased testosterone levels can cause the skin to produce excess oil, which can lead to blocked pores and breakouts. Approximately 40% of female-to-male transsexuals are believed to suffer from acne for this reason. During male-to-female hormonal treatment, heightened levels of oestrogen can cause the skin to become dryer, which can cause itchy uncomfortable skin, and even eczema in some cases. Increased oestrogen can also cause hyperpigmentation and freckling.
