Day One Regimen, Week Three Bc

So, I usually don't do these types of things, but I want to track my success somehow, so why not here?

background I'm Jennah, and i'm almost 20! I have always had moderate acne, but when i went off to college, it just blew up. I tried Doxy + clind, but that is very bad for your body. Being on anti-biotics longterm take things from your body, so i stopped that after 6 months. And my acne got worse again..

I started Birth control, (Tri-Sprintec), and i'm on my third week, and my face has never been this bad. I know it takes around 3 months for hormones to balance, but i can't handle going in public with such a horrid face.

Alas, I found this site when i was checking reviews on this birth control, ( most people cleared up nicely with tri-sprintec after the initial flare up, blah blah blah) and i'm not one to try systems; i have never tried pro active, or anything. I'm a vegetarian, so most products are not vegan and they bother my sensitive skin so much. I've learned it's horrible to scrub your face, it moves around bacteria and irritates it. So i researched some reviews about this regimen and i was impressed with the success rates. So i ordered a few things:

  1. I always use a gentle cleanser, so i didn't get dans, i use CeraVe foaming wash
  2. I bought dans BP
  3. Also his moisturizer and jojoba oil (which i'm already in love with)

PS: I take b12, zinc, and biotin

I'll write soon about my results!

I was on tri-sprintec once and I know that it is supposed to be the generic for ortho tri-cyclen but it made my face break out in TERRIBLE cystic acne! I have also taken Beyaz and had WONDERFUL results for my skin! If you're skin doesn't get any better with the tri-sprintec, I would highly reccommend beyaz! :) Good luck w/ ur regime!!!

was it because you didn't let it balance for 3 months, or you kept getting cystic acne 4+ months after trisprintec? and thanks ill look into that if something happens!!!
