PCOS Acne

Having been diagnosed with PCOS really made me aware of the root causes of my acne. Unfortunately my hormones right now are still F’ed up and my face/skin is freaking out! LIKE FREAAAAKING OUT!!! 

I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2014, and began birth control. It really did help with keeping acne at bay I tell you that, however several months ago, I decided to let my body rest for a while - and now Acne is wreaking havoc again... i can even feel that my back is also acting up now! (Guess have been super busy with Life as well that’s why I was only able to go back here in this site now)

I’m back on the pill and finished the 1st pack. Waiting for my (.) and I can definitely vouch that this is why my face is sooo filled with angry cystic acne right now especially in my jawline, chin and even neck! - My Ob gyn said that I might see some improvements starting on the second month of the pill...  i’m also taking supplements to help me with this battle, along with exercise and diet (avoiding dairy, sugar, coffee, gluten (i try) )

Meanwhile, i just started out with a modified acne.org regimen. 

Day 1 - Monday 03.19.2018
Washed with subtitute cleanser Johnson’s baby wash
Dan’s bp treatment
Moisturizer - I live in the Philippines and I use Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Moisturizer which is water- based and non-comedogenic (has super few ingredients as well which I love, and this has always been my go to moisturizer)

We don’t have the Acne.org regimen readily available here especially before, but I’ve seen some resellers and they will do! - I’m just relieved that somehow they are “available” (althoug almost always sold out fast!)

I was using the Alba Botanica acnedote when i started breaking out in Feb 20 - but I really wasn’t seeing any difference at all. NSo.... shooting this write up into the black hole. I am really hoping and praying that this will work! IT WILL WORK!!! - Coz i’m at wits end. For the past few days I’ve just been crying and crying to the point where my eyes already hurt, puffed and swollen. 

Dealing with PCOS, Acne, Bipolar disorder, Panic disorder.... jeeeeezzz. What a PAIN!!!
