Acne Around Chin/mouth

Recommended Posts

those areas were clear , i been on my same diet and regimen for about 6 months and it got clear but all of a sudden those area started breaking out like crazy and i cant figure out why

i just added saw palmetto 1 week ago and im taking dim supplement aswell

can that be a problem ??

i believe it can be the saw palmetto causing my acne for some reason

im a male

so this is what i researched and think so far , tell me if im wrong

saw palmetto reduce testerone but increases esotrogen

dim reduce estrogen but increase testerone

i think im getting new acne breakouts because of the saw palmetto 90% sure

You are more likely getting breakouts because of the DIM. Testosterone is the typical culprit in the acne you are describing.

I personally broke out every time I tried DIM.

GreenGables,

Is it possible that you were getting an initial breakout and if you were to continue on DIM, you may have found a resolution? Did you ever try Nature’s Way, it seems the best reviewed?

I had been 100% clear for months when I tried DIM. I don't believe in "initial breakouts" in this case, because it would imply that there was something waiting under the skin for months to "purge" when I took the DIM. As I said, since I had been clear for months, the more logical explanation was that the DIM directly changed the hormonal balance to create new acne.

LeadingForce, were you clear on DIM? I've recently started it myself.

yes i was clear when i was on dim

saw palmetto helps if you have acne from testerone but then it increases estrogen then from what i read
