Hello everyone. It has been a long time. I have gotten a little depressed about my acne recently and did not feel like coming on to talk about it unfortunately. I stopped taking all my vitamins and such because it was getting too expensive. But I can say that it did help my skin. I just could not afford buying the supplements to keep me relatively clear. 

 

I am now on BP. 5%. 

 

I went to a dermatologist today and discussed my skin. I have never been to one before. He wants to put me on Spironolactone . It will decrease levels of testosterone in my body and hopefully decrease my acne. And the second option we talked about was accutane. If the Spiro does not work then I am going on accutane to see if that will help curb my acne from coming back.

 

I am so tired of acne. So so tired. 

 

I hope everyone is doing well, and I hope everyones skin is doing better than mine. I will start a log about my Spiro journey once I get my blood drawn. I will see everyone at the finish line!



***Also thank you for all those who have reached out to me via message boards and posts. I truly appreciate your words and the kindness you bring to this site :)

Just curious are you going to keep taking all those supplements or are you going to try and find out which ones are working best for you? 

I will be trying to find out which ones are working best for me. But for now I am going to just stay the course and when I am ready to experiment again I will start dropping what I think is not helping to keep me clear.

 

I want to go down to --> B5, L - cysteine, Niacin, and Vitamin C. I take vitamin D because I am deficient in it!

I will be posting a picture very soon!

 

It is much cheaper. I bottle of that acne supplement was around 40$ and would only last be 16 days! lol so yeah going out and buying them individually in bulk proved to be the way to go. I posted some links to people from acne.org who were using some of the supplement where I began this regimen. But if I could guess I could think it is B5, l-cysteine, and Niacin + Vitamin C. One of the links I posted included a gentleman who had pretty bad acne and got clear with those supplements, and I honestly think is it them. But you are right it is too hard to tell exactly.

 

I am glad BP is keeping you relatively clear. If I would recommend you any I would recommend for sure B5 (pantothetic acid), Vitamin C, Niacin, and L-cysteine based on my progress and the story of one guy on acne.org. I have been using lemon juice as a toner every night and every evening and my brown spots are fading pretty fast. I would definitely recommend this! It has AHA which exfoliates and removes dead skin and is a natural lightening agent. 

 

I went from using the regimen with 90% success, but now at 100% no breakouts is much better because I am not dealign with new spots to get rid of you know? I hope things work out for you, I am rooting for you! 



Sorry Lily and Michelle it wont let me quote you guys by the way!

Awesome that this is working for you!

Can I just clarify, you're taking each of those supplements individually (all the ones you mentioned here a little while ago) or is it one pill/supplement with all those things in it?

 

Thank you for your wonderful words :)

You are correct I am taking these supplements individually! Many of these supplement I have listed are found in pretty well reviewed supplements made for acne, but taking these individually is much much more inexpensive....and they work it seem!!! I have been taking them as you can see for nearly two months and started to be clear after about week week three I am thinking and have not gotten a single pimple since. I am so happy with the results! 

 

How has your skin been doing, and what regimen are you currently on???

Day 54 Update

 

So I am still pimple free! I am still taking the supplements I have listed and I have begun to reduce the amount of BP even further. I hope within another month if I continue the wonderful progress, that I will go to only using one drop of bp per application and from there I plan to reduce to once a day, and finally off it completely. 

 

I have never been this clear ever. My skin is looking fabulous. I hope these supplements keep working their magic. New update in about a week!
