Estradiol (E2)

Estrogen, the queen of the female sex hormones, appears in three different forms in the body. Estradiol is the most powerful type and it is primarily active during a woman’s reproductive years. It controls processes like the development of female physical features and the regulation of menstrual cycles. Estradiol influences the skin’s ability to produce collagen and retain moisture, and imbalances can lead to dryness and wrinkles.
