It's Time

So it's like whenever I start to see my skin being completely clear i start to break out like there's no tomorrow. Right now i have about 9 big pimples all around my chin and cheeks. I am tired of acne, and tired of taking a drug every day. I think i'm ready to venture out and find a natural way in curing hormonal acne- perhaps one that will work. I might even change my birth control pills for the 1000 time in order to try and find one that works for my skin. There are so many natural remedies f

Current Regimen

So looking back at old posts, and feeling super sad for old me and how bad my skin use to look (a reminder for everyone to stick with it) I realized I have not talked about what i am using for my skin besides spiro. So, I do not want to be on spiro forever, and for lack of remembering to take it, I try to take 2 50mg a day, if not every other day or every couple days. Nothing bad happens when i go a couple days without it. I have not gone to the dermatologist since april, but im going next month

Month 7

It took 7 months to get where i am now. The exciting part is that this is my "that time of the month" skin. Normally i would be so broken out right now. THATS how excited i am to finally see it fully working. I cant believe its been 7 months of ups and downs but here we are today so stick with it!

Month 6

Month 6 was not to long ago. My skin is pretty good! i only have one whitehead.... i have blackheads on my nose any ideas how to get rid of those? other than that i could not be more happy with the results. im only taking 1 50mg a day because 100mg is a lot and i dont want to be on this pill the rest of my life. 1 seems to be doing the trick. Wishing everyone the best of luck because i know how dark and lonely i got during the worst of my skin days. I feel more social and now that i am back at c

4 Months

4 months in and now seriously debating just going on accutane. only thing holding me back is that i dont have the mentality to go through the initial breakout. Spiro already ruined my life enough eith the initial breakout....

2 Months

So i am two months in. Skin is not perfect, but its way better. I cant tell if its better than it was before spiron or if its just way better from the initial breakout? Im not sure. Anyways, i still get new whiteheads every day but it also could have been from the stress of finals week. It was 90 and sunny yesterday and i went for a run and wow my face hurts so bad. I cant stress enough the importance of sunscreen with the spiro. I always use to tan naturally but now i burn right away.....bless

Day 53

I still get a couple new white heads a day but nothing i never had pre spironactalone. I highly recommend the Ponds B3 Clariant Dark spot correcting cream. Has made the healing process smoother and easier. My journey is slowly but surely progressing!

Day 45

I woke up today with my skin less imflammed. I only have about 6-7 active pimples rn the rest seem to be just red and dark spots trying to heal. This amazes me because its [that time of month]. My skin is super dry, I think my skin wants a little break from the Tazorac gel... Also, im using Ponds Clariant B3 dark spot correcting moisturizer on my face for my dark spots left from my acne and wow i love it. It does not cause me to break out and its been about 3 weeks using it and i already see the

sighhhhh

at that 6 weeks mark and ugh my skin has gone from okay to worse its ever been to healing a little and now it truly is the worst its ever been. Im back to not messing around with other products besides what has been prescribed to me. I go to the derm mid may (around the 3 month mark) and if its not better by than i cant even imagine. Here are some updated pictures. Im a little sunburt rn from being outside all day yesterday so that probably not helping my skin anyways.... I never go out with my

Update

okay guys so im on week 6 and just wanted to show where i am. I was sooo desperate to clean my skin from my horrible IB that i completely got rid of dairy from my diet and I started drinking a table spoon of apple cider vinegar a day for both my skin and my weight (tryna lose stop weight for summer too). I also read great reviews about rubbing a banana peel on your face and sleeping with it on so out of desperation i gave it a go and i am glad i did. Now i know i am probably hurting my skin more

UGH

every day i wake up i have about 8 new whiteheads. It is miserable. I am miserable. i NEVER use to break out in these areas and thats why i think spironactalone is not working on me. Anyone have any advice or information about this? desperate whether i should just stop or not.

update

so basically these past 5 weeks or so have been brutal. Not looking like any chance of things going up from here.I dont remember my initial breakout to accutane being this bad.  I never use to break out on the left side of my face, and now thats where i just have clusters and clusters now from spironactatone. I never use to break out on my forehead either and now they are all attracting there. My face is quite dry, but im persistent using the tazorac because I truly feel that is the only thing h

Month 1

So I have been on Spironactatone for about a month now and my skin is worse than when i started. I guess its the initial breakout? I am so discouraged to keep going but this is truly my last option so i am desperate. Normally i break out really bad before my period but im not on my period rn. I never took pictures before but here is where i am now.  I use cetephil gentle face wash, tazorac gel, and vanti face cream. hoping for the best!

Background

I would like to start by giving a little background on my acne. I started to get acne as long as I can remember especially in my middle school and high school years. I have been to the dermatologist so many times I feel like she knows everything about me. I have been on literally every cream and antibiotic possible (such as spironactalone, differen, tretinoin creams, retinas, clindamycin phosphate) and NOTHING worked for my skin.  I had moderate to severe acne, meaning i broke out all over my fa
