Hi! Just wanted to start a blog as I am beginning to take Diane 35 for my acne. I have been suffering with acne since I was about 14, and I am now 18 and am finally going to take action because I do not want acne at this age! Or any age really.. I usually breakout really bad around my period, and I know that these oral contraceptives are for hormonal acne so I really hope that it works for me!! So I have lots of blackheads on my nose probably also because I have really oily skin which sucks! I get a lot of white heads too around my nose and my mouth (attractive I know), and get really nasty cysts usually on my nose which I want to cry everytime I get one, and I get them on my cheeks but they are under the skin and do not form above the skin like the ones on my nose.. Cystic acne is the worst kind of acne and of course with my luck those are the ones I get! Usually around my time of the month.. Like right now I just got one to go away that was on my nose, it's slowly going down ! And I feel one under my skin by my mouth and a few on my cheeks, and of course my blackheads are on my nose woo . Anyway, so ya I'm on my first week of Diane 35! Hope I don't get that huge initial breakout like I have read about some girls, that would be horrible because my self esteem is already low as it is soo , praying all goes well!! Keep ya updated Summary: - usual oily skin still - whitehead around nose - few but not visible cysts under the skin - light migraines not sure if from the pill Some girls have also said they get nausea from the pill thank god I have not had too many bad symptoms yet, and hopefully don't jinx myself aha! Talk to ya soon
okay so I am now finishing week two and here are my updates!! over the past week I had received a few nasty white heads around my nose which came and went, also the typical under the skin cystic acne, just like 2, which came and went away, my cystic acne on my nose went away, the ones beside near my mouth are slowly going away, and I currently just have one on my fore head and one on my chin yay... they aren't big though so that's good!! hopefully new ones stop forming once these two go away!! also they leave scars sometimes, anyone know how to make them go away...
I believe I missed a week and this is week 5!!!! I'm not sure what it is , I'm eating kind of the same , I drink more water And I've been using a honey/lemon mask once a week and my skin is pretty clear right now!!!!!! I'm so happy ! If it's the pill or whatever I am very happy, I'm not sure why I have clear skin , I get maybe 1 little one a week that goes away fast ! Whereas I used to get a new one every day , I'm improving for sure and I'm not sure what it is!! But I love it hopefully this continues ! It is really weird that I am still not getting a really big initial breakout like a lot of people I have read about have gotten , instead I'm pretty much getting better ! I'll update again soon and see if this continues
its week 3 now and here are my horrible updates... the ones I had are going away, but earned a few more pimples and a giant one on my chin and one giant one by my cheek, I feel one coming on my nose and one on my upper lip not sure if its my diet or the pill sometimes... its hard making time in university to prepare healthy meals all the time !! going to change my diet starting this week and see if anything changes
