Hey cheer up! Your acne is wayyyy better than mine. But heres some things u could do in natural terms
make a turmeric mask-- turmeric mixed with gram flour, milk and honey.
Dap some rose water on those spots
leave honey on angry spots at night.
This one is weird but I SWEAR. if you do this 2 times everyday a week you will notice the difference. Just eat a banana and with the peel slowly massage it onto ur skin and leave it on for 10-15 min and rinse with cold water. No joke. If irration occurs or it doesn't feel right stop!
Thanks kyou. The main reason I posted those terrible photos was to make people with milder acne feel better because there is worse. But I'm sorry your acne is worse. I'm seeing some improvement these past few days from following the candida diet and starting saw palmetto.
I've never heard of the banana peel treatment, lol! But I would try anything at this point.
Hmmm...birth control is sort of a last resort for me. I had tried a wide range: diane + androcur (not BCP, but as anti-androgen), yazmin, yaz, and a few others I didn't even bother looking into when I was younger because I blindly trusted doctors. They wrecked havoc on my body and messed up my metabolism and my mood. It took me years to heal my body and have a regular metabolism, so I am reluctant to take chances with BCP again or any pill that has potentially serious long term side effects. I'm trying saw palmetto now, which my health practitioner said it's the closest herbal alternative to spironolactone, so we'll see. Spiro would be the first pill to try if I decided to go that route
inositol, DIM [had to stop for now, don't seem to need them anymore!], digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements, magnesium citrate.
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
