I've been inspired by so many progress posts on this site, that I decided it was time for me to contribute to the community as well. I am a 32-year-old female who suffers from moderate but consistent hormonal acne. I take no oral birth control but have a Mirena IUD. My breakouts include cysts and white heads. Last week I started taking the following for my adult, hormonal acne:
- Vitamin D3 (4,000iu)
- Saw Palmetto (500mg)
- Stinging Nettle (500mg)
I also started taking the following to combat excessive bruising on my arms and legs:
- Vitamin C (1,000mg)
And for the past year I have been taking:
- L-Lysine (2,000mg)
- Women's Daily Multivitamin Gummies
Here is my progress thus far. Hoping to track and share my progress weekly. Fingers crossed for results and patience.
It's too soon to really see any results, but at least psychosomatically, my acne seems to be "drying out" more quickly. I've had bout 8 new pimples this week, but it's quite possible they were already there and just hit the surface this week.
For week 2, I am considering adding the following into my new supplement regimen:
- Evening Primrose Oil (1,300mg)
- Calcium (1,000mg), Magnesium (500mg), Zinc (25mg)
Stay tuned, and please let me know if you have any questions or advice!
