I'm new to this site but had to share my success story of clearing my acne.
I am an adult female in my 30's who never had acne in my life. I had an occasional zit here and there but nothing I ever had to worry about until I started getting persistent acne around my mouth and on my chin (consistent with what they call hormonal acne).
I went to a doctor and had my hormones checked and they came back normal. However, he still insisted it was horomonal because of the location. In the mean time, my doctor prescribed me various medications like Retin-A, Eyrthomycin in dermbase, oral antibiotics, etc.. nothing worked. I even changed my diet, no dairy, no sugar, no gluten,.started using apple cider vinegar, various detoxes, you name it, I tried it. Still everyday I would wake up with a new breakout.
Finally, I went to my husband's doctor who advised me to stop using fluoride toothpaste and then come back and see him in 2 weeks. I thought he was crazy but I was desperate, so I went out and bought a flouride-free toothpaste. Within 1 week of using it I noticed a difference... I had no new pimples!!.. Then I continued to use it and I am now 100% clear!! It's like a miracle. Luckily, the city where I live does not fluoridate the water supply.
I hope my story helps someone who is suffering with acne, especially those women who are consistently told their acne is hormonal.
