Have any of you had birth control pills clear up your skin?

I've tried everything but accutane and BCP's. I'm sick of antibiotics, and I can't afford them anymore anyway. My skin isn't too bad, but I still have to be very diligent and careful. I'd say it's 95% acne free. I break out right before my period, and of course that leads to ugly red marks most times.

I refuse to go on accutane, besides, I'm not severe enough.

I've been on birth control - Loette - for about 5 months and it's -really- helped my skin. It's amazing. I have gone from pretty bad skin to nearly perfect (apart from red marks from before). So I would say definitely give BCP a try if they're suitable for you. Go and have a chat with your doctor - they'll know what BCP are available for you and which are good for acne, etc. If it's an option for you, then you may aswell give it a try : )

Good luck !
