Tazorac!!

Hello,

I am currently on Yaz, but I don't like being on BC and want to go off it soon. The only problem is that I have a feeling that my skin will completely freak out if I do this. Along with Yaz, I already use Tazorac and Aczone. Does anyone think that those topicals will be enough to prevent major breakouts from going off the pill? Is a major breakout inevitable, or does it only happen to some? And does it subside, or will it last forever?

Thanks!

It can take a few months for your hormones to get back to how they were before you started birth control... but it's pretty impossible to predict the effect it'll have on your skin. I never got a flare up of acne after discontinuing birth control.. I was on ortho tri cyclen (which I stopped and started a couple times)... and also seasonal...

The topicals should definitely help you, though. The taz will help with exfoliation and aczone is an anti-inflammatory. A good combo for your situation.
