update after 4 years // hrt changed my life



i think i've definitely cleared up by so much. it's not like my skin's crystal clear, i still break out but it's so manageable now. my skin's still incredibly oily but i'll take what i can get. 

the main thing that's really cleared me up is estrogen. i'm assigned male at birth and i've recently come to terms with my gender identity, that i'm non-binary. so i took the hormonal route in transitioning and the side effect was clearer skin.

i know for a fact that it was estrogen because i stopped using any actives on my pimples. anw im sorry i can't be like "oh tretinoin/benzoyl peroxide/salicylic acid cleared my skin" and im not suggesting anyone take estrogen just to get clear skin. BUT if you're struggling with acne, questioning your gender identity  and you're assigned male at birth, you should really consider estrogen hehe. 

i wish you all the best!! it'll work out for everyone someday, it has to! i hope the day comes when we dont have to come back here anymore, fingers crossed. 

please do note that i got a facial 3 days before i took these pictures and im currently wearing a mineral based sunblock, but it's sheer. nonetheless, i tried so hard and got so far. cheers

I have to admit that you are right, though you have just discovered the hot water. lol 

3 years ago I took Androcur when I was in Bkk and my skin got flawless just after 1 tablet. I guess you should know what I'm talking about. However, the main side effects that I got were anxiety and erectile dysfunction and since I'm straight I couldn't go ahead swallowing that pills. I'm not able to give up my sex impulse to treat acne. 

It is the same treatment that Michael Jackson did in his youth. He definitively cleared up his skin losing his sexual impulse and virility.
