After having tried countless products from my doctor (including antibiotics, topicals), and various birth controls (yasmin, yaz, marvelone), this pill seems to be finally working! Seriously recommend to any girl who has acne and has tried other BC options, this one is best at limiting testosterone (which I think is the cause of my acne)
On Spironlactone (did see results a few months--cysts stopped on neck and jaw, been on it for about ten, then stopped working, i.e. return of the cysts), seeing if it was the manufacturer change that made my hormones out of whack...
-still oily -still breaking out - a lot of hyperpigmentation and some box scars - lighter skin tone and more even, kind of smoother - replaced aha soap with african black soap (and loving it!) -still taking vitamins a,d and niacin. ran out of zinc -mildly breaking out on my chest and back -will continue this until week 24 and if shit still happens then idk anymore
This album depicts my journey to clear my acne. I've used acne.org products before, but they didn't clear my skin completely (I was using them for several years). In mid-September in 2014, I decided to go to the dermatologist. My doctor prescribed me Atralin, which didn't show very good results. So I went back in mid-November of 2014 and was then prescribed Tazorac and a pill called Acticlate. In the morning, I wash my face with Cetaphil. At night, I wash with Cetaphil again and apply a pea-sized amount of Tazorac. I will keep this updated as my treatment continues!
-still oily -still breaking out -number of lesions dropped -added benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin phosphate as spot treatments -started taking vitamin d again - lighter and more even skin tone -skin looks alive haha wat
Stopped the Acne.org Regimen in September because it friend my face out really bad. My face was still breaking out so I went to my Dermatologist in December and got recommended for these prescriptions. I'm seeing good results so far!
-50% less oily probably bc of vitamin a, zinc or niacin idk -still have spots -added clindamycin phosphate and benzac as spot treatments (currently going well as new spots are fading faster) -smoother and brighter skin
