Hi guys, I am so confused at the moment and I need help. I started saw palmetto three months ago for hormonal acne as I cannot take birth control pills. For the first month I took only one pill daily. For the following two months and till now I take two pills. I have not noticed any significant improvement and I have no side effects at all. I go on with it because I read in several posts that it takes long to act. I also started vitex three days ago. My usual break out is two to three cysts or pimples before my period, but in my former period I broke out AFTER the end of it, and it was a bit worse. I am now in the middle of the cycle (ovulated yesterday).

I wonder is it possible that the SP make me burst after three months of usage so as to purge, or is something else wrong???. I dont consider that vitex has interacted yet, as the breakout happened before I started it. My cycle is clock accurate and if it wasnt for the acne I would never thought that there is a hormonal problem.

THIS SITE IS LIKE WIKIPEDIA FOR ACNE!!!!

So i figured out the problem by reading another post just after i posted this one. I forgot to mention I used castor oil on my face for 3-4 days overnight as I read its good for the scars. Yep.... IT IS NOT. I assume the break out is because of the oil. Anyhow, feel free to reply...

If you want an oil for your face try jojoba oil or borage oil.  Other people have good results with them and they won't make you break out.

 

I don't know where you live but if you are in Canada there is a product called ESTROSMART by Lorna Vanderhaeghe which helps balance out your hormones if you can't take birth control pills.  She has a website you can look at if you like.  My daughter takes them for her acne and I take them for period issues.

Good luck.
