Update, Spearmint And Adding Some New Things

The spearmint thing is real! I got super busy and lazy with drinking my tea and my skin went NUTS. I hadn't had a cyst in weeks and I woke up with 4! It also threw my period off, from 28 to 34 days from going a week without the tea. definitely consistency is key with it, but at least i know it is doing something!! Back on that regimen for sure. I also finally filled my script for .1% Zorac gel (Tazorac in the US) to replace the Atrain (tretonin .05) i had been using. It is a much stronger

Update On Spearmint Tea

I've been doing the spearmint thing for a while now so I can comment that I can definitely see a difference in my skin. I'm still breaking out but my skin is MUCH less oily. It was so oily to begin with that it's still a bit slick on my t-zone by the end of the day, but compare that with looking like my whole face was covered in Crisco by 10AM. I've also switched back to a moisturizing bb cream and to my less drying cleanser because my chin was starting to peel from dryness! My zits have a

Update

So I've now been using spearmint tea for nearly a month. I can't say its' made a dramatic difference so far, but I'm going to keep it up for a few cycles to see if it kicks in. I did notice that my period came RIGHT on day 28, which it never does (usually its more like day 30-33). I'm cautiously optimisitc that this is a good sign. I've been breaking out more in small-medium papules than cysts (knock on wood!) though the effect is still pretty awful, especially since a pus-filled z

Intro-New Blog

Hi guys, I'm back with a new blog. After my failed attempt at an Accutane course and a lot of soul-searching, I'm attempting to use a combination of low-risk, proven conventional treatments and clinically researched alternative treatments to try to clear my acne. I have already tried a LOT of treatments, ranging from the conventional to the hippie to the kind-of-crazy, and have had various degrees of success. However I still have not found a long-term solution I can tolerate or I w
