My period should be here in the next couple of days and my skin is looking pretty good still!
For a few days I got pretty lax with all of my supplements, except for the cinnamon with every meal 3 times daily.
I'm pretty sure that is what caused the one pimple I got on my cheek. It went away quickly, but it bummed me out because I was getting used to having clear skin!
So I'm convinced all of this works together. Maybe cinnamon cuts down on 50% of my acne, and saw palmetto and vitex cuts down on 30% and my topicals cut down on another 15%. Or whatever. Either way, I am so much closer than I have ever been in my life.
To not be dealing with a bad flare up before my period? Unheard of. To have no pms - No bloated gross feeling? No depression? No cramps? I thought it was unavoidable - part of being a woman. The world seems like a better place now that I know I don't have to go through that every month! Anyway, the day of my period is when I get a final flare up - so I'll keep my fingers crossed!
Now that acne appears to be under control, I'm obsessed with the scars I have on my face. So I bought a PMD (google it) and will start using it once my period comes and when my skin is less sensitive.
I have one scar that really depresses me, but if I'm able to make it look better I'll be so happy!
