I have competently cured my acne, so happy with it. I have suffered from mild hormone cystic acne for 2 years. I have done blood check my doctor told me I have high testosterone and prescribed diane-35 for me. It help but makes me gaining weight and feel depressed. After 6 months I stop it, and acne come back. I don't want go back on birth control pills and search for natural remedies.
Here is my regimen:
Saw Palmetto is a real miracle! It suppress the testosterone much better than diane-35. Now I have oil free clear skin, I have never experienced! Except SP, I also take Vitex, herbal detox blend, it helps the total body detox and make skin looks clearer and glowing. But I think SP does the most jobs.
