Excessive body hair growth can be the main cause of hormonal imbalance. Addressing this, he explained that facial hair in women is an important sign of excess androgens (male hormones) in the body. In women, these male hormones increase due to insulin resistance.
She provides facial hair reduction solutions that don’t require you to visit a dermatologist. She lists some important steps to follow immediately.
Reducing sugar, refined foods, packet foods and refined oils. She recommends an organic lifestyle minus the chemicals and non-organic foods that can increase estrogen and cause hormonal imbalances like PCOS. Adding zinc, chasteberry, saw palmetto (a natural DHT blocker that prevents facial hair) and DIM supplements.
Cut down on excess carbs and keep them to 20% of your plate. Increase your omega-3 intake by eating fish, flaxseeds, almonds, and walnuts.
Eliminate estrogen from the body in two ways. You shouldn’t be constipated (eat overnight-soaked chips in the morning on an empty stomach), and sweating through exercise will eliminate estrogen.
Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables, cabbage, broccoli, radishes and cabbage.
And the last point highlighted stress management. She recommends taking long walks, taking breaks, and getting adequate sleep to reduce and maintain insulin resistance.
Her caption ended with a note – facial hair can be a real struggle even when you do everything right. It may take a long time to see improvement in deficiency. This will first reduce growth and then decrease numbers.
