I am SO confused by my skin. ALL feedback is encouraged.

I had clear skin up until a few years ago, now in my late 20's I have constant breakouts on my cheeks , jaw and chin.

Rarely ever able to pop.

SO....I said "F" it...and started using Tamanu oil all over my face every night...my skin cleared up 100% !!!!

THEN....IT CAME BACK. and worse......

So now I went to the derm. (w/ no insurance...awesome) And was prescribed Spironolactone (25mg) and Sodium sulfacetamide sulfur cleanser....

Thisss sucks. I don't like using meds or chemicals....and I am bummed out that I have to result to this....if it will even work...

Then what? If I stop the med...will it come right back???

WAH!!!!!

wtf. anyway. thanks guys.

I just ordered again from this company called Garden of Wisdom. I've never found a miracle cure from their product line, but they believe in this thing called "skin complacency." You might want to try contacting them and see if they could recommend to you some products. They're of the belief that your skin can become complacent to your products and blemishes can come back.

Worth a shot?

Did you stop using Tamanu oil and then it came back? (lol "it" like it's a monster but it really is isn't it?) Or did it come back even with the Tamanu?

I've never even heard of it so that's encouraging that something helped - at least temporarily.

I refuse to go to the dermatologist anymore because it'll just be antibiotics or worse. I want to heal myself naturally.

I did research spiro awhile back and there's some people with success...but still. I'm looking for something else!

No it came back while I was using it. It is a great oil - look into it. It had me 100% clear for a long time :)
