Well, one year and almost two months since first embarking on this journey with spironolactone, my skin is perfectly flawless. I am so happy. Anyone considering spiro, please try it. It can really change your life in dramatic ways. It is so nice to not have to hide my face, put hair over my skin, turn around when people look at me, and sit all day inside while having a bad breakout. Looking at photos of myself from then, my acne was completely awful. I had about 4-5 cysts at a time, and numerous smaller pimples spread throughout my face. Now? Nothing Except for the week before my period, where I usually only get one or two small pimples. I feel so confident, so free. For the first time in my life, I let someone see me without makeup, my boyfriend of two years. Want to know what he said? "Oh my God you look so amazing without makeup, never wear makeup again you're naturally stunning". That was the best thing I've ever heard in my entire life.
