Been slacking on my cream, but, I don't know if it's an age thing, but my spots just don't bother me anymore. We're only human.. Updated 03 May · 0 comments

About Me

'Hey i'm Abi, i'm 20 and i'm currently studying drama at Lincoln University. I've been suffering with mild to moderate acne since the age of 13 ish and have tried quite a lot of treatments with rarely any success. I tried antibiotics for 6 weeks which didn't make a difference and then I was put on different contraceptive pills, still not doing anything. I was put on a pill called Dionette which I heard very bad things about. I didn't notice any mood changes but the doctor was anxious about putting me on it considering my age so I came off it. Last year I decided I want to try an over-the-counter product such as Tea Tree, Clearasil, Freederm etc but no such luck. Last June I was given a solution called Zineryt. It comes separated meaning you have to mix it together but it's quite simple. It stung for a little while but my skin became immune to the pain. Within a month my skin had cleared up nicely. Not only this but I was able to wear make up to cover the purple under my eyes and it still did not cause outbreaks. Unfortunately I became immune to the solution and last Christmas, (2011) My spots returned. Worse than ever. I then had a cream called Epiduo, that was horrible. Made my skin worse, dried it out, made it sore. Couldn't touch it or lean on it at night. Eventually I was given Acnecide and wow, what a difference it's made. My skin is clear and bar some red marks, my skin in my eyes is perfect. The best thing is, I won't become immune to this as it's a BP product. I recommend it! Be patient and eventually you'll be the ones writing about your experiences. GOOD LUCK.'


Warning: Don't come off a BP cream straight away. I ran out of it and didn't get any more and the spots came back a little. I'm back on the cream and also a contraceptive called Marvelon which is known to help skin so I shall see if it helps. Could be the end of creams if it does.
