Beautiful skin is something that is desired by everyone. We all want to maintain that youthful glow throughout our lives as much as possible. Various factors affect your skin, including what you eat, genetics, and lifestyle choices. Are you wondering if hormones affect your skin, even thyroid hormones? The answer is yes. Read on to learn more.


Are you constantly lathering on lotion? Is your hair thinning and coarse? Are your fingernails pale or brittle? Hypothyroidism, or low thyroid function, may not be the first thing to come to mind, but you should know that it is a common cause of issues such as hair loss, brittle nails, dry skin, acne, eczema and more. Click here to discover 20 ways hypothyroidism affects your hair, skin and nails, and learn about a natural solution.


Estrogen levels can change throughout a woman’s life, especially during perimenopause and menopause when levels drop. Estrogen particularly plays a role in the thickness, moisture, and elasticity of the skin. As estrogen levels decline, it’s common for noticeable changes to the skin to develop.

Have you reached menopause and began noticing that you have crepey, sagging skin? Well, that loss of estrogen is the culprit. Click here to discover four ways estrogen deficiency affects your skin in menopause and how you can restore your estrogen levels back to normal.

Hormonal Acne

Acne is something none of us want to have, and it is sometimes a painful skin condition. But why do these flare-ups happen? It seems that for some, the presence of adult acne even exceeds what they experienced during their teen years, so what has changed? By helping you overcome the condition known of as acne vulgaris caused by hormonal fluctuation, you can better avoid the scarring and acne flare-ups.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
