Yes, women in menopause can experience hormonal shifts. This leads to overproduction of oil in skin. Presence of excess oil on skin causes clogged pores which attracts bacteria. This infects your skin thereby lead to acne.

If you experience sudden mood swings; perform meditation. Ensure you get enough sleep this will prevent occurrence of mod swings. Search for the best menopause supplements that help treat the mood swings caused in menopausal women.

Hello Kruss42,

Adult acne is caused by sebum, an oily substance produced by the skin's sebaceous glands. Sebum clogs pores, which attracts bacteria and become inflamed. Sometimes, hormonal imbalance is the culprit. For women, this can happen during pregnancy, perimenopause, and menopause.
