Hello. I'm Dr. Loretta Ciraldo. Board certified dermatologist, and author of "Six Weeks to Sensational Skin." This clip is about hormonal skin problems. As a dermatologist, the two most common kinds of hormonal skin problems that I see, are first a discoloration of our skin from hormones, most commonly these would be hormones associated with birth control pill. And this is called Melasma, or sometimes the mask of pregnancy. Where you start to get a staining of your skin, it can be sometimes just above the lip, almost looking like a stained mustache above your lip, or it can be a whole mask like distribution. The second kind of hormonal problem that we see from in the skin, would be acne breakouts. And many women who get acne, know that they get it at a certain time during their menstrual cycle. If you are someone where this happens, than you may want to consult with a dermatologist on how to manage your hormonal acne breakout. This is Dr. Loretta Ciraldo in Miami.
