So I've been prescribed both spiro and diane 35(I live in Canada) to reduce my oily skin but after sucessfully escaping acne after coming off the pill 5 months ago, I'm reluctant to start another pill. I saw my naturopath and asked for a natural alternative to androgen blockers and he gave me Testo Quench! It is supposed to reduce any androgenic effects and help promote healthy hormones. Androgens are what creates oily skin and acne.
I was recently tested for my hormones, and I am a little under weight and I am low in estrogen/progesterone but NORMAL in androgen and testosterone levels. I always thought that my oily skin would mean I have high androgen levels but is it possible that it is due to the fact that my other hormones are so low they aren't counteracting the effects of the androgens? resulting in severely oily skin? Please help me understand this!
Has anyone tried it and had sucess?I've only been on it for about a week and a half and with hormones it takes some time but I thought I'd ask and see if anyone has any opinions?
