Too many people suffer needlessly with chronic acne.
Part of the reason so many of us continue to cope with this struggle is how complicated it seems. Acne control and skincare in general are complex issues. That's why the dermatology specialty exists; it's also why literally thousands of acne fighting products are available.
But creams, soaps, and exfoliating scrubs all try to treat the problem from the outside. We start from the inside, with the natural hormone balance provided by DIM.
DIM is short for Diindolyl Methane, a substance that is found only in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and leafy greens. A single capsule of our DIM contains more Diindolyl Methane than you could get from 2 pounds of cruciferous veggies. And the payoff can be immense.
When your skin is plagued by blemishes, the underlying issue is often hormonal disruption. DIM works to promote the natural metabolism of hormonal excesses, bringing levels back to where they ought to be.
Do I Have Hormonal Acne?
There are three factors that could indicate that hormone imbalance is at the root of an acne problem.
#1. Acne development is heaviest in certain areas.
During the teenage years, acne development in what is known as the “T” zone can be an indicator of hormonal causation. This zone includes the forehead, brow, nose, and chin.
In adults, hormonal acne sufferers tend to see pronounced blemishes on the lower part of the face including the lower cheeks, chin, and jawline.
#2. Outbreaks are connected to hormone fluctuation.
If you notice that the intensity of your acne gets heavier or lighter with different stages of the menstrual cycle, it's likely that your acne is hormonal. The same applies to acne sufferers with PCOS, or who have increased acne with the shifting hormone levels of menopause.
#3. Nothing seems to work.
If you've tried everything on the shelves at Walgreens, and even one or two celebrity-endorsed acne treatment symptoms, but nothing has made a lasting difference, the hormonal angle is worth looking into. If hormonal imbalance is at the root of an acne issue, antibacterial treatments, and face washes may not be able to change things.

More About DIM
DIM is dynamic, and multi-faceted. One of the benefits of supplementing with DIM is that it is one of natures most effective antioxidants. DIM also has a positive effect on the immune system, effectively doubling the number of white blood cells in the mice of one 2007 University of California, Berkeley animal study.
Despite its promise as an antioxidant and immune booster, most consumers use DIM for it’s effects on hormonal health. Diindolyl-methane stimulates and promotes the metabolism of excess hormones. The result is improved health, and tangible benefits for various issues including hormonal acne, menopause symptom alleviation, and fat loss.
