In May I started using the oil cleansing method. In addition to using oils to cleanse, I was using Rosehip oil to fade hyperpigmentation marks on my cheeks (in hindisght, I'm pretty sure I was using way too much of this, as the spots where my clogged pores are located is where I was slathering this on with great gusto...)
Anyway, I stopped using ocm about a month ago, but I'm still dealing with pretty angry looking skin around my mouth. Because of this, I started taking a bcp again (I was on one for about 5 years, coming off of it about 1.5 years ago.) Could my going back on the pill be exacerbating the acne I have now? I was using Diane 35 last month, but I switched to OTC lo (I've used both of these pills before successfully, back in highschool). I take a zinc supplement (25 mg and sometimes 50 mg) daily.
Is there anything I can do to speed up my healing? I've ordered the CLEAR acne solution from Paula's Choice. WIll that help me?
