Back at acne.org again! It's been a few months since my last update. My hyperpigmentation on my cheeks faded a lot, I assume it's because of the weekly 1% retinol treamtent of Paula's Choice. Before I used Yasmin I rarely broke out on my cheeks, but in the first couple of weeks of using Yasmin I broke out like crazy (See other posts for pictures). My cheeks cleared up and pimples are not coming back. I'm glad that my cheeks aren't a problem area anymore.. HOWEVER my forehead has a different
This week I started my 4th pack of Yasmin and it's the first time that it didn't broke me out at all (not complaining about the one teeny tiny spot I got) like it used to do while starting a new pack. My face hasn't been pimple-free since ages. Yasmin has work wonders for me so far. My periods are the most regular they have ever been. It hasn't done a lot to prevent my excessive hair growth, but the doc told me that I'll probably see difference after a couple more months of using the pill.
I haven't updated in a while. My skin has been doing good. Right now I am in my stopweek and I do notice that I start to break out between my eyebrows, but it's nothing compared to what I used to get. I didn't get many cysts on my forehead after the first 2 initial breakouts. I've even had a few days where I didn't get any new pimples at all. I still got my post acne marks on my cheeks that seems to have fade, I hope it's because of the 2% BHA. I haven't changed anything in my diet, I still
The first month is over (: It's my first day on my stop week after 21 pills. My skin is still the same, haven't noticed any major improvements of my blemishes. In the last 2 weeks I've only gotten a few big pimples on my forehead. On my cheeks are still the blemishes from my initial breakout. I'm starting today with a new skincare product, Paula's choice 2% BHA lotion. It claims to brighten up my post acne marks. Hopefully it will do his job. Overall it was a good first month and I hope my perio
It was my second week on yasmin and what a week. Let's start with the positive things I'm not feeling nauseous anymore and my appetite is completely back. Also I went from an A cup to a B cup. Yay boobs. Time to face the downsides. I gained 2 kilos. Ingrown facial hairs. My pimples aren't healing at all and I decided to stop using Erythromycin since it makes my pimples look more reddish and it hasn't done anything to diminish them in 2 weeks. Spots are still coming up. Especially under the skin
So it's my first week on Yasmin and I'm not really bumped about it. Of course it will take longer to see improvements, but for now I wake up with a new pimple everyday. Also I feel extremely nauseous in the morning and very hungry. I'll have a picture insert of my right cheek, this was the only side of my face that was completely clear. So I keep taking pictures of my right cheek so I can see the progress the best, since I've got always pimples on the rest of my face. So the right cheek is speci
This blog is particular to just open up about my skin condition to whoever is going to read this. I don't like to talk about my skin in general to anyone but I feel like I need to get it off my shoulder. Maybe it will help me to stop being so obsessed with achieving a perfect skin in a particular time. So let me tell you something about my skin. When I was around 14 years old I started to getting acne on my forehead. Not even cysts, just simple whiteheads. My cheeks were clean as a white paper
