I have great results with hormonal acne by complementing your skincare treatments and home care regime with supplements.
I usually recommend a broad strain probiotic capsule such as Multigenics Ultraprobioplex ND or Lambert's Acidophilus Extra 10 to help re populate the bowel ecology.
A multi vitamin and mineral with additional zinc 30mg for about 3 months - zinc helps fight bacteria and is needed for skin repair.
Eskimo Skin which is a specific mixture of Omega 3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids helps with inflammation, skin repair and balancing the hormones. This will help with your dry patches too.
For severe hormonal breakouts then an oestrogen detox diet or supplement such as Estro Balance OR Estro Factors can be very helpful.
Eliminating cows milk from your diet is also recommended to minimise taking in the hormones in the milk.
Topical skincare needs to be pH balanced and detergent free. A mild Salicylic acid cleanser massaged in gently will exfoliate the dry skin and reduce the excess oiliness and reduce pore clogging. Use a clean cotton face cloth wrung out in warm water to remove the cleanser.
A regular treatment such as Oxygen Rx Facials with Cocoa Enzyme Mask is very beneficial too
