Halfway There..hopefully!

Posted by Peaches0042, 04 March 2013 · 572 views

I am a month and a half into restarting my birth control. Last time it took 3 months to get things under control so I just half a little ways left to go! My face was doing ok..I had a stubborn pimple on my left cheek (extremely common breakout place). Now that's healing but yesterday I broke out in about three more pimples all on the right side of my face...

Hmm..a Bit Better

After the yogurt/lemon mask last night (kept on for 20-30 minutes) the redness in my face went down significantly. Love that mask! For anyone who wants to know, I used 0% fat Greek yogurt. The redness has not come back this morning and I feel the pimples have become smaller although that could be just be the lack of redness. Started my diet this morning a...

Hello Ugly

Here comes breakout number two. It's all around my nose..not many, just two or three. But man are they red! I haaaate them but its part of the process. Taking maca capsules 3x a day, as well as drinking lemon juice at night. The only difference it MAY be making is I've noticed my finger nails are much whiter..or so it seems. But for my face, it seems to b...

The breakouts around my mouth have fully healed and I busted finished week 3 on ortho tri cyclen. For the past week I have also been drinking a cup of cold water with juice from half a lemon every night before bed. Not only is that great for your overall health, the reviews related to clearing acne are fantastic. I haven't noticed a definite lemon-related...

Full Two Weeks In

Posted by Peaches0042, 08 February 2013 · 409 views

My breakout around my mouth is definitely drying up more and more each day. However, my complexion has just turned blotchy (even where I had no breakouts) and red. I've also got a breakout in my forehead coming to the surface. Foreheads usually clear for me so I know it's due to the BC. Overall my complexion has taken a major turn for the worse this past...

Middle Of My Second Week On Ortho Tri Cyclen

Posted by Peaches0042, 06 February 2013 · 416 views

I woke up this morning to some pimples having turned into whiteheads. I popped them gently using my needle method and did not squeeze but simply washed. Others seem a bit more dried up after popping them yesterday. I'm doing my best not to stress about it. Besides that first day of this major breakout, I have been ok emotionally. I've been having to wear...

I'm Baaaaaack!

Well folks, I'm back after nearly 5 months. To answer your question, yes, my routine of daily Trinessa (Birth control) plus 20% sal. acid cleanser plus grapeseed oil as a moisturizer plus Tazorac at night kept me clear. I would ONLY get a small breakout if I went a few days without cleansing or using the Taz. Well.....I forgot my BC for a few days an...

Second Month, Third Week On Trinessa

Posted by Peaches0042, 07 September 2012 · 423 views

The breakout continues. I've only been on Trinessa birth control (generic of Ortho tri cyclen) for 7 weeks, one week short of two months, and I think I see a pattern of breaking out the week before my period. It's not HORRIBLE, two little whiteheads on my upper cheekbone, one clogged pore near my nose on the right side, a trail of three small...

Day 111..i Think

Posted by Peaches0042, 02 September 2012 · 322 views

So, last night i took my first pill to start week 3 in my cycle. And, Boom, breakout today. Minor, simply small clogged pores, but I have about 5-6 when I average 1-2 now. I was a bit surprised as I took off my makeup tonight and saw them because I don't remember seeing them yesturday or even this morning. A bit annoying, yes. So, it's seeming...

Day 93

Posted by Peaches0042, 15 August 2012 · 234 views

Well, speak of the devil, I had a little breakout last week. One small yet deep pimple (kind of like a cyst). I haven't had one of those in months. It was right below my eye which is unusual. Then I got one tiny tiny whitehead on either cheek, a very popular place for breakouts, and a few dots on my forehead which I don't fuss at all over. 6...
