In Topic: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Broke Me Out!

08 October 2014 - 05:34 AM

did you just get acne from the st ives or did you get the skin colored bumps that we're talking about? if the skin colored bumps, do you still have those?

I made the same mistake 5 years ago and had the exact same reaction. Still get moderate acne but not as severe as during the time I was on that st ivies stuff

my initial reaction was a complete cystic acne breakout. Cannot remember if I got skin coloured bumps from it but I get them occasionally nowadays. They're the worst cause I dunno what is underneath them and they take the most time to go away (3-5 months?) At least pimples there be a time u can squeeze and pop them out.

I was prescribed minocycline and have enough repeats for 3-5 months so I plan on taking it till I run out. I know for a fact that my acne is triggered by oily food so my game plan is to get back to my clear state and continue to avoid the food that triggers my acne even till after I'm completely clear.

I had similar concerns too but 1 month into my antibiotics my face has cleared up dramatically. acne that comes up goes away in about a week as opposed to several weeks before.

 

health wise I feel absolutely no difference. I take probiotics (inner health plus) and 1 shot of yakult once a day to balance it out.

 

I also use AHA purchased from this website to clear my dark spots which are also fading quite rapidly now

I think it has everything to do with humidity in japan. If it's anything like taiwan or hong kong - staying over there in summer broke me out like crazy. For me it didn't matter how healthy I was eating my face was extremely itchy and red all over.

 

Once I got back to australia in the winter time it stabilised. I started taking antibiotics and that has reduced the breakouts dramatically.
