In brief: Yes

If not ovulating regularly the ovary produces more male hormones adding hair and acne? It is weight neutral.
It helps the skin by stopping excess ovarian testosterone and the estrogen gets metabolized into certain protiens which bind up testosterone in the blood so less is available to react with he skin. If u have irregular periods w/high weight metformin may help the wt loss efforts.Lk up pcos.
