Proactiv Or Birth Control?
Posted 05 May 2012 - 11:43 PM
Months later i started taking triness (birth control) but started using the proactiv again around the same time. My face was the clearest its been since i was 10. Only time i would get a pimple was around my period.
a few weeks ago i stopped taking the bc but continued the proactiv. I broke out on one of my cheeks very bad. Two weeks later i went back on wondering if the bc cleared me up. No more new pimples and that terrible one is healing.
So im thinking the birth control is helping with the acne so it must be hormonal.
Do you think its the birth control thats keeping my face nice, or the proactiv?
Im wondering if i could continue my bc, but slowly ween myself off proactiv to another cheaper less harsh product and still keep my clear complexion.. please help

You'll find many women stay on birth control or spironolactone long-term to keep their skin clear. Personally I am on spiro.
I don't get notified of your response to my post unless you QUOTE my post.
Please only quote a small portion of the post so it doesn't clutter up the thread.
HOW I STAY 100% CLEAR:
Spironolactone (anti-androgen drug)
Betaine HCL with each meal
Avoiding silicones and occlusives in skin/hair products
