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
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
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 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 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....
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
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!
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
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
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
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.
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
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!
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
