44 yr. F. New here, New to Acne-what happened???

I am 44--quite possibly starting to go through perimenopause-hormones check out normal via bloodwork.

Started breaking out intermittently a yr ago and then 2 months ago--my face became a complete mess, especially around chin, mouth area and between eyebrows. Previously had dry skin before and now it is oily in those places--AND I rarely had even one pimple. Last year had to pile on moisturizer and now oily skin. What in the world is happening??? I also have mild rosacea and am scared to start routine but I HAVE to do something. Anybody shed light on what could be happening?

Thanks :-(

The first guess would be it is down to "the change" (early stages perhaps). Your hormones are probably totally out of wack except that your blood test says no? Well, I suppose, unless you had a previous test to compare it with, it doesn't mean that there hasn't been a hormone change and your body is still catching up with that.

What kind os acne do you have, is it cystic?
