I am going to try some new things in an effort to rid myself of this acne which is threatening to ruin me. I am so sick of waking up to new big zits and the agony when I feel a big cystic one coming on. My engagement pictures are supposed to be in three weeks and I'm really hoping my skin looks better by then. My wedding is in six and a half months and I am desperate to have clear skin by the big day and for the honeymoon or else there is no way I am getting in that water and having my makeup rinsed off. It's bad enough for my fiance to see me without makeup when I go to bed at night and wake up in the morning.
What I am trying:
Generic BC of Desogen (I am upping to this dose of hormones from a lower dose)
1000 mg Vitamin C
50 mcg Vitamin B-12
1200 mg Fish Oil
I am cutting out dairy products since I read that they have been found to be linked to acne
Neutrogena Oil-free acne wash cream cleanser (in the shower)
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque (leave on 15 minutes)
Neutrogena Rapid Clear Salicylic Acid (2%) Treatment Pads
Beauticontrol Extreme Repair AHA moisturizer
Ponds Cleansing Towelettes
Oil of Olay moisturizer
Neutrogena On-the-spot acne treatment Benozyl peroxide (2.5%)
**The big changes are cutting out dairy, the new birth control, and the SA in the morning and BP at night. I really, really need to see some improvement.
