PCOS & Fatigue: Why are you always tired?

November 28, 2022

Those who suffer with PCOS can experience ovarian cysts, weight gain, irregular periods, infertility, and a whole lot more.

But one of the most debilitating symptoms isn’t one often regarded as serious or severe: chronic fatigue.

PCOS directly affects your energy, but how? Today, we’re discussing all things fatigue. You’ll learn where the low energy comes from and how to relieve the symptoms. Let’s get into it!

The best PCOS skincare tips + products for healthy glowing skin!

The best PCOS skincare tips + products for healthy glowing skin!

November 21, 2022

Whenever we open social media or a magazine, we’re bombarded with altered images of perfection. This unattainable image can be particularly disheartening for women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

PCOS causes a hormonal imbalance that affects the body in a number of ways. High levels of androgens (otherwise known as ‘male’ hormones) lead to a host of symptoms, including insulin resistance and weight gain. Excess androgens also cause increased sebum production, leading to acne and oily skin. The best PCOS skincare tips + products for healthy glowing skin!

When treating PCOS acne, masking the symptoms with traditional acne treatments may not be the answer. Acne is an outward manifestation of inflammation in the body combined with elevated levels of androgens, such as high testosterone levels.

To treat and reverse acne caused by PCOS, we need to understand the root issue that sparks a flare-up.

It’s not about understanding your ‘skin type’, washing your face more, or buying expensive creams to reverse your symptoms. It’s about supporting your hormonal imbalances and making healthy, sustainable lifestyle changes. After all, healthy skin starts from within. 

Check out this episode where I talk about my top PCOS-friendly skincare tips to calm your breakouts and have a healthy glowing skin!
