In women it is reasonable to suppose that androgenic hormones from the adrenals play animportant part in the genesis of acne.
Estrogens have a profound effect on the activityof the sebaceous glands. Ebling (1948) showed that the sebaceous glands of rats were greatly reduced in size after estrogenic treatment.
Because of this, some birth control pills, in small doses can be useful to reduce acne.

In answer to your question benzoyl peroxide is not a good medication as it has side effects when used a lot. It tends to dry skin and also irritate the skin thererfore perhaps making the condition of your skin worse. If your skin is hypersensitive then it needs to be treated with high quality products for those who have hyper sensitive skin. I would therefore recommend a very popular and well known brand called Dermalogica. I have been using this brand for many years which was recommended by a skin consultant as I also have hyper sensitive skin.
You can try using their product called Dermalogica skin prep scrub which helps for those who have oily skin. This product is a skin polishing scrub exfoliant with natural grains that can help to make your skin smooth and soft after regular use. The ingredients are natural as they include corn cob meal which can help to reduce all the impurities on the surface of the skin. It also contains other natural ingredients such as extracts of ivy, cucumber and aloe vera which is the soothing ingredient. Please therefore go to the website Dermalogica.com after searching for dermalogica scrubs.
To know what skin type you have it is very simple. Get a tissue and blot it over your nose then look at the tissue under a strong light and see if it has any residue of oil on the tissue. If it does then you could have a T-zone problem. To double check this also blot the tissue on your forehead and chin . Check again under a strong light and see again if there is also a residue on these areas. Next you blot your cheeks and check the same way again under the light. Areas that show residue of oil mean that you have oily skin. If the tissue for example does not show any oil on the cheeks area but only on the foredhead nose and chin then you may have combination and hypersensitive skin. If your cheeks and all areas are oily then you have oily skin. If your cheeks are prone to redness and dryness plus a t-zone oily problem then you have sensitive and oily skin. In checking out your skin type you simply have to look for which areas show a residue of oil and which do not. Then you can determine what skin type you are. Alternatively you can also go to counters that sell skincare products and ask a consultant there to tell you directly what skin type you have. He/she should have a good idea as they do this kind of job everyday.Hope this answers your questions.
