Post Estroblock & general skin update

Hi Everyone!! Wow it's been a long time. Sorry about that guys. I've been wanting to do an update for a while now but things have been so hectic. I think this will be my final update for this blog, since I no longer use Estroblock.  First off, it definitely worked for me, hands down. I actually stopped taking it back in January 2018 because I got so busy with things I just forgot to take it daily and my skin was completely clear at that time (and I even had a whole lotta stress at the same t

Estroblock - Month 5

Hi Everyone, Peace and Love to you guys. I hope your journeys have been positive since the last time I posted. I am so sorry for waiting so long to update. Perhaps it's a testament to how well estroblock has been working for me!! Apart from a healthy summer in the sun, I really truly believe estro block is NOT a gimmick. I have had perhaps 3 or 4 pimples in the past 5 months of being on estroblock, but no breakout what so ever... I noticed my skin had the best results (not just clear but glow

Estroblock - Week 3

Hi Everyone,   I just want to update on Estroblock. I’ve been taking two pills a day now, and I’ve just finished my 3rd week. My skin is doing really well, I’ve only got around 5 or so that have surfaced since beginning this three weeks ago, and I think the main reason was because I was not taking a liver detox sup with it which is recommended to aid in detoxification. Im also in the middle of final exams, so a pimple or two will be normal with stress as high as Dubai’s tallest tower,

Accutane *Pause* - Estroblock?

Hi everyone,    Thanks to those still checking in on this blog post. Hopefully my journey with various things I try has been helping some of you out.   I just wanted to update that I stop taking accutane about 1.5 weeks in for personal reasons. Every day I took a pill I felt something in my gut that told me it wasn't the right thing to do. wouldn't solve the actual root issue. My results for 1.5 weeks alone were great though. all my acne disappeared except a few small cysts w

Accutane - Week 1

So I finally took the plunge, That being said, I am not sure if I will continue. So I've been on accutane for 1 week. 20mg once a day. Hardly any dryness yet, lips aren't chapped but Im a moisturizer kind of girl anyways so maybe Im just on top of it. light nosebleed tonight, sore inside the nose from blowing too hard I think. headaches and tiredness initially but i think it was more psychological than anything. tons of water drinking solves the headaches. Skin is actually more oily but it ma

To take tane, or not to take the tane? End of water only

Writing this I have a heavy heart. I wanted so bad for this to work, knowing I believe in holistic = health = happiness but I have ended this water only regimen at around day 62. So 2.5 ish months. Although my facial redness and facial oiliness decreased significantly doing this regimen, I can say with confidence that, for myself, it did not prevent acne. After my infection cleared, I realized I still had some bumps that had not disappeared and had been around since the start of the infection so

Day 60 Water (and salt) only

I decided to rename my title to more fairly represent my regimen. I am officially infection free- YAY! what an ordeal that was… two weeks of oral meds cleared it up though. I noticed significant clearing however when I started washing my skin at night with salt water, it really sped up the healing process and helped disinfect from the outside. This is going to be my last post for a while since I am relatively happy with how far things have come.    Although I have red marks left over a

Day 44

Hi guys, infection is clearing up nice but Im on second week of oral antibiotics to get rid of it completely. It’s been hard on the esteem, but I feel its only made me grow stronger and more courageous to attend classes with this all going on. Due to bacterial infection, I’ve been applying manuka honey on infected areas only every night for a few hours. I have been continuing with water only but tried something different this time. Due to infection, I wanted to keep it a little more cleanly s

Day 38

Hi guys. quick update.  infection is still present so decided to go on oral antibiotics... should kick it in the butt. Still washing my face with water only, obviously a little longer on areas of infection where antibiotic ointment was on it. Only washed one night (night of day 36) with a small amount of all natural soap but regretted it, skin was dry and tight so I'm definitely still keeping the water only up despite the current ordeal! I wanted to mention that if you go water only washing

Day 36 (Water Only)

Hey everyone,   So I kind of broke the rule last night. Kinda sorta, but not with chemicals… with honey. I’ll explain:   The area I got a major purge in was clearing up quick but all of a sudden about a week ago it really started to slow down compared to the initial rapid clearing I saw the first few weeks. I woke up with a sore in my nose a couple days ago, and within the past few days to a week the breakout area seems to be itching more, not going away fast, and reddening.

Day 28 (1 month)

Hi Guys!! So here I am, I can finally say I made it 1 month of just washing my face with water in the evenings. Wow, what can I say? I'm so happy I took the leap and... it wasn't near as brutal as I thought.  The big jaw breakout purge I got that started at the beginning of the 3rd week is about 60 - 70 percent better than it was. So recap of the first month, this is what I’m noticing: whiteheads came and went within one to two days, drying up extremely quick. Red bumps have been slowe

Day 24 (Water rinsing only)

Hi All!   I wanted to post another update…   I think I am finally seeing blue skies!! The last week and a half has been tough, I won’t lie purging period has been a bit hard on the self esteem since my skin pretty much decided to purge all my underground acne all at once. Good news though, I have not gotten any other breakouts other than one or two pimples that showed up by my temples so this is great news; my skin is pushing out whatever it needs to without breaking

Day 21 (water only)

Quick update cause I'm noticing some differences today. I'm feeling a bit unconfident today, turned down socializing with a friend. Still a lot of red bumps on my jaw that's turning into whiteheads, old whiteheads have since dried and fallen off, lots of flaking in this area but it's also been over 5 days I think since I last exfoliated. I've been hearing poeple say exfoliate once or twice a week while others swear by not exfoliating. I dunno I think the key is letting go, not thinking so hard a

Day 19 (water only)

Man these blogs are finiky!! I think it’s the site… I had to go and retype it into a word document and then paste it here, otherwise directly typing into the blog post was freezing up on me! Anyhow, last night was the first time since I can remember that I went to bed without washing my face… how liberating!! I was so tierd and didn’t feel like it at all and thought, why not? Im on a new regimen that allows me that flexibility and it is so stress-free! Rad! As for progress- the breakou

Day 15 (water only)

Merry Christmas everyone- wish you all a beautiful day with your families!! not much to update as far as skin changes. My oil is almost completely regulated on my forehead, everywhere else is absolutely perfect. I wanted to post a quick one today because I cannot believe the change in my pores ... I cannot see hardly ANY of the pores on my cheeks, nose and forehead. It's INSANE. I suppose the last time my pores were so small was before pre acne or as a kid. I am over the moon happy and this i

Day 13 (or 14?)

Hi all, I will upload blog posts for the first two weeks of this regimen when I get home, currently visiting family for the holidays and don't have my notes on me to detail my first two weeks on this regimen. I thought I would mention what's currently happening with my skin. So within the first 2-3 days on this regimen, I noticed my skin tone completely changed for the better. Cleansers used to make my skin look red, blotchy and aggravated especially on BP and I really noticed this cause s
