Hey Mystory,
Amanda here, yes I am off BCP now and have been for two months. The first month was fine, the second month was when the acne showed up, grrrr. Of course the nurse at my OBGYN told me if I wanted to clear this up just to go back on the pill (hello, there is a reason I got off it in the first place). My period has returned, yet my face and also my right arm have cystic acne. I have been taking vitamins, putting coconut oil on my face every night and also drinking ACV. Today I seemed to notice my cysts have lessoned, as if there is nothing inside most of them, but the discoloration on my skin is horrible. Who knows if it is actually going away. Is there a reason you didn't want to take the natural hormones? I'm so sorry that the evening primose oil didn't work for you.
Also, I checked out your pictures and I do see an improvement! Keep it up girl!
It makes me so mad that physicians don't tell you about these side affects of going off the pill - that is not right!
Keep your updates coming!
Amanda

UPDATE LONG OVER DUE!!!

 

Hi everyone,

 

I've come back to update.

I've seen that thereisalwayshope is doing great, and that warms my heart.

Unfortunately for me, the regimen did not work.

Here's why: my skin is way too sensitive and even weeks into it, it was read and peeling and it seemed to have aggravated my acne by irritating my skin.

I have to say though that I love the cleanser and the moisturizer (which I use as a body and hand lotion) and have re-purchased many times. However BP is simply not the solution for me.

 

I'm still looking for a cure or long term treatment and believe me, when I find it I will DOCUMENT IT for everyone here.

I'm approaching my issue with a holistic approach now, how to fix the inside to get better on the outside.

Topicals simply do not work for me.

 

I'm not going to lie, I've even considered accutane at this point, but have decided that I will NOT give in to that after researching the terrible life-altering damages that go along with it.

 

My next step is to get blood work done to try and understand what is wrong on the inside.

 

I will be back when I have it figured out. I promise.

 

Sending you all my support.

Diane 35 and all other BCP are poison. Diane 35 caused my acne.
I've been off the pill since December 2012.


DKR Regimen Started July 16th 2012. Did not work for me, irritated my skin and made matters worse.

Now trying to quit facial cleansers and use the water only method.

Started the water only method on March 18th 2013.

AM:

  • Rinse with water in shower
  • Pat dry with a clean towel or paper towel
  • Apply Almay Smart Shade Makeup with a clean brush (try to go without when possible)

PM:

  • Rinse with water over kitchen skin
  • Pat dry with a clean towel or paper towel

I DO NOT EAT:

  • sugar
  • alcohol
  • processed anything
  • gluten
  • very sweet fruits (ex: bananas or pineapples)
  • egg yolks
  • dairy

I allow myself 1 instant coffee a day.

I take fermented cod liver oil, zinc, probiotics and spearmint tea every day.

I also give TLC to my liver with burdock root and dandelion tea smile.png

I change my pillow cases frequently.

And if we could float away, fly up to the surface and just start again and lift off before trouble just erodes us in the rain. Just erodes us in the rain.

Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future.

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
