Hormones are chemical messengers which travel through the body and reach organs and tissues, keeping them functioning normally. They are needed for the proper running of various systems such as reproduction, metabolism, growth and development and so on.
Both men and women, and people of various age groups need hormones to keep the processes in their body up and working well.
Because hormones are a crucial part of the body’s health and well-being, an increase or decrease in their levels can lead to several problems like fluctuations in your mood, energy and stress levels and irregular functioning of various systems. More often than not, hormone imbalance is clearly visible on the skin, which is also the largest organ in the body.
This infographic takes a look at hormone imbalance and its effect on the skin and provides solutions to avoid it in. Go through it to get a better perspective.

This infographic discusses different types of skin conditions that may be caused by hormone imbalances. The header image implies that the infographic will be about skin, which is a helpful visual lead-in. The design is also very well organized and easy to navigate. The use of icons helps to describe each cause of hormonal imbalance as well as each skin condition and solution. It would be helpful to reduce the copy — remember that complete sentences aren't necessary for an infographic! Also watch for confusing symbols — for example, the symbol for "breakouts" looks like a drop of water hitting a body of water, while "stay hydrated" reads as a (possibly dehydrating) cocktail. In all we'd give this a B.
