Had no money so I couldnt buy any niacin for 2 weeks. Started breaking out on my neck area again and got about 4 or 5 on my face. They werent serious though. I just bought niacin and cvs had it buy one get one free so I am set for atleast a year!
Now its December and my face is mostly clear. I get tiny little white heads that you cant see unless you look for them. My neck gets 1 or 2 during menses but that is it. I have been on Emu oil to get rid of scaring and it helps keep my skin clear and hydrated. My skin is damaged from the last 30 years of acne though. I wish I could afford to have some work done but I guess not for me. Well nobody can be perfect. But I'm glad I dont get the "oh my god what happened to you" look from people and kids anymore. Niacin has been the answer for me!
Just stopped by to touch base. I have been on Niacin since the beginning of February. My neck is clear and my face gets the occasional bump around that time of month. I have to drink alot of liquid to keep hydrated. I live in Florida so I need to drink all the time. I stay away from caffeine and alcohol because it affects my hydration. The Niacin is the only thing keeping me clear. I want to find out why that is. What is the underlying issue that the Niacin is fixing or covering up. I keep writing people about this but I get no answers.
Well no matter what I do or use to clean my face, Niacin is the only thing that works for me. I can go a day and not wash my face and it doesnt make a difference. If I go a few days of no Niacin, they pop up again. It doesnt matter what I use to wash my face. Niacin controls everything. I can use a topical salicylic acid to clear current bumps a little faster. The mandelic acid that gets rid of scars works great too. But Niacin is the only thing that keeps bumps away all together.
Yeh its been a while since I wrote on here. I stopped the niacin for a month, and everything came back bad. I have now started it again and things are clearing up again. My neck is the worst area. My face has an occasional 2 or 3 whiteheads. My neck is covered with different sizes of acne. It is like from my chin down to the line across the center neck. And from ear to ear. Like really? I dont understand why my neck is having all the acne. I am about to be 43 and this is just not right! I use the same soap, spot treatment, lotion, everything on my face and neck. Im really tired of this.
