Things are looking up

For the first time in a loooong time I haven't broken out with any new cysts in 2 weeks. Actually been afraid to say anything here so as not to jinx my good run.

A little background - 39 y/o female been dealing with hormonal adult acne on and off since 14 y/o.

In December started Spironolactone about 2 months ago bumped up to 100mg a day.

Around May started exfoliating every other day w/ Avon Anew glycolic peel retexturizing pads (Thanks Wynne)

Last month switched to organic dairy and started using Aczone topical gel.

I am not sure which of these things (or maybe combo of all) is working for me but this is the longest I've been clear in years. I don't know how long it will last but for now I'm gonna keep doing exactly what I'm doing..

Not posting this to gloat but to let others know from someone who has been down and struggling for a really long time to hang in there. One day out of the blue things can totally turn around :)

Glad good things are happening for you! Maybe my turn next? :)
