10 Weeks



Ahhhhhhh...... I feel like I am making progress. Last week was horrible. It really got worse even the pictures can't show how bad it really looked. My face was just not right. I really feel no matter what products I use, it doesn't make a difference. I been sticking with the Cetaphil gentle face wash and lotion and 50 sunblock, BP in the morning after face washing, then I changed to use less than a pea size retina a on my face not adding to my chin area and just using whatever cream left over that was maybe on my fingers and rubbing it on my chin/jaw area. The Bare Minerals I use to use just wasn't covering my spots so I tried Cover Girl and Loreal. Finally, broke down and went to Ulta where I ended up buying this completely expensive Napoleon stick foundation and powder which I guess hides them somewhat better than the other stuff, i wouldn't say $90 plus better. Anyhow, I really can't take much more and was about to throw in the towel and try the birth control pills which my doctor did give me before but I have a fear of birth control pills. I am pretty convinced my acne is related to hormones which my hormones really stated to go out of whack when I turned 30 and have been progressing to get worse and come through my face as well.

I went and bought some DIM, finished a bottle but didn't experience much difference in taking them. Last week, I went and got Estroven. I waited until my cycle finished and started the Estroven a week ago. I really feel it is making a difference, if not, then it could be just my TOM ended and my face is looking better until the next TOM. I been staying on the Estroven and taking one every morning and one every evening. Hopefully the pics look better too since I upgraded my phone finally.
