Hey you guys. I’ve been spending today researching oral contraceptives and acne. It’s interesting stuff. However, I ran out of time before I got to a daily video again! I’ll be sure to get one up tomorrow.

In the meantime, if you are jonesin’ for a good video, might I suggest the one from 2 days ago titled “Dental health does not take a holiday”? We had a lot of fun doing that one and worked all day on it so you guys have to watch it ;-)

Have a great evening everybody!

    Wow, you spent the whole day? Thanks for putting so much effort in for us. It’s much appreciated. :)

    I just wanted to say, from personal experence. Birth control is the only thing that works to take care of about 60% of my breakouts. the other 30 is retin-a and the rest is up to chance. mostly clogged pores and blackheads that i have to deal with now. one thing at a time right? just saying, if your breaking out around your chin/jaw area it is most likely hormonal and that leaves you with only a few options to control :)

    I was using the Acne.org regimen religiously for about three years, and I was clear about 90% of the time. After that I started taking oral contraceptives. It took being on the pill about 6-7 months before I could stop the regimen (it seemed like a really long time especially because I was expecting 3-4 months), but now I am usually very clear, and – although I still make daily use of your cleanser, moisturizer and AHA – I only have to use Benzoyl Peroxide for about four days each month when I get a mild breakout on my forehead. The strange thing is that before starting the pill, my cheeks were my big problem area but I’d never broken out on my forehead before.

    Why do we need to wait until the face fully dries (15 minutes) to apply the medication? Can you go further into why that is so important? I am sure that I am not the only one wondering this…

    I’m seconding J here. Is there an actual reason to wait 15 minutes after washing and after bp? And is there evidence that doing everything the same except for waiting the 15 minutes makes a difference?

    Im convinced that my birthcontrol consistently caused my break outs. I was taking Reclipsen and constantly breaking out. Ive been on the Acne regimen almost three full weeks and have some under the skin pimples that have been there for almost 2 weeks. I recently ordered the AHA so Im hoping that will exfoliate the skin and clear up my remaining blemishes. Any information on birthcontrol + acne would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks Dan

    why is there a need for so many different oral contraceptives these days?

    will i be in danger if i use cheap contraceptives pills?
