Hoping For Clear Skin with Spironolactone & Atralin > Day 64 - Starting Week 10 On Regimen

Posted 27 May 2015

So the past few days were a bit rough. But it's Day 64 and for now, things are looking up.

I started my 10th week on this regimen today--which is a pretty big milestone. 3 more full weeks and I will have been on this regimen for 3 months (woah!) That's also the point when I've heard many people experience less purging, which I hope is the case for me!

Posted 23 May 2015

My skin was pretty much clear for the past week, but I could tell that there were some tiny, small pores that were clogged across my face and under my lip that would eventually purge.

The past day and a half I've started to get a bunch of very tiny, small pores purging across my right cheek and a couple on my left jawline.
