One Month and 4 days on Spiro

Amber G


Well, I have to say that despite the SE (which are getting better over time) Spiro has really worked to clear my skin. It is amazing I started my cycle today and I should have some breakout-- but, nothing. Skin is completely clear of bumps!!! It is almost unbelievable. I do still have small blackheads throughout my T zone. I just read about Mandelic acid as a potential treatment for that. Will keep you posted. I have been using BP and AHA and Apricot oil (I do not have any Jojoba oil on hand but plan to get some). BP I use am and pm. AHA only when I am not wearing make-up. And Apricot oil at bed time. I use it liberally. It may seem counter intuitve to use oil for acne prone skin -- but do not fear-- the oil actually helps to clear the skin. I also have been using apple cider vinegar twice per week to help fade the red/brown spots. And with all of this my skin is clear. Top this with the fact that I took a new job and am under increased amount of stress while in the "learning curve". It is truly amazing that my skin is clear. Today I went out and jumped on the trampoline with my daughter without any make-up! That is a big deal! Hope this continues. Take care all. FYI: I have really started to be more gentle with my skin as well. I have reduced my picking to just extracting the occasional black head. This has also been a factor in my healing as well. :shhh:
