    None Broke me out Watch out with EVOO, great for consuming, not so great on the skin. I tried the OCM (oil cleansing method) with olive oil, and broke out it thousands of tiny infected pimples which took MONTHs to resolve. Because of this, I threw myself in a terrible viscious circle of irritating my skin with topicals to resolve the acne, which in turn caused more acne, etc... Watch out with olive oil or the oil cleansing method. It is NOT for everyone. You've been warned.

    Water Only Log :)

    Thank you so much for taking to time to tell me about your experience! After a few days of doing water-only and feeling gross and dirty, I decided that logically this regimen would not work for me given that I was wearing makeup. Sleeping with my makeup up is obviously a bad idea, for obvious reasons. However, I know I've damaged my acid mantle (or skin's natural barrier) with years of using drying cleansers day and night. So what to do about that? Obviously, using cleansers is NOT the way to

    Diane 35

    Hi everyone, I posted this on another post and I pasting it here because I would like to strongly warn you against taking Diane. It is a SHORT term fix, a bandaid that will make your acne so much worse when you stop it. Diane is probably going to clear you out. However, you will never be able to come off of it without breaking out and once you come off, your acne will get 10X worse. I've been on and off diane for the past 7 years and before going on it, I had just a few breakouts which n

    Water Only Log :)

    Day 3 update: Forehead which is usually smooth is now quite disgusting, bumpyish with a lot of dead skin and oily too. Looking forward to be out of the "dead skin" build up phase. No new pimples on face, just looks a little gross due to the makeup build-up. I have 2 new pimples on neck, and that's because I've been picking at my neck. That's all for today! MS

      Water Only Log :)

      Here's my story: As a teenager I had great skin on my face, a little oily with the occasional pimple, but I never thought twice about my face. My back had very light acne, and for that reason at the age of 17 I decided to get on the pill Diane 35. I have been on and off the pill with 1 to 2 year breaks in between, for the past 9 years. The first time I got off Diane 35, at 19 years old, my face stayed good, and the back pimples came back as they were before. I stayed off the pill for

      All About Saw Palmetto

      It is purported to be safe by (some) doctors, herbalists and other tiddly winkers on the net; but, in reality it is an anti-androgen. Look-up Saw Palmetto sides at Propeciahelp.com. You need to take it indefinitely for results; it will not cure acne (oily skin) or regrow hair after short stints as some here have argued. Thanks for that. After doing a lot of research online, I realised Saw Palmetto is another potentially dangerous supplement, with unknown long-term side effects. It's effects h

      All About Saw Palmetto

      Has anyone taken Saw Palmetto for a long time, i.e. years? Is it safe to do so? I'm obviosuly looking for a long term solution! Also, do you think your acne got worse AFTER stopping the Saw Palmetto? Like your body got used to it and started producing even more androgens to counter-act? I'm asking because in my case, stopping Diane 35 made my acne so much worse than it ever was before. 15+ months later, still suffering from this horrible pill's damage to my system. I don't want a repeat
    4. UPDATE LONG OVER DUE!!! Hi everyone, I've come back to update. I've seen that thereisalwayshope is doing great, and that warms my heart. Unfortunately for me, the regimen did not work. Here's why: my skin is way too sensitive and even weeks into it, it was read and peeling and it seemed to have aggravated my acne by irritating my skin. I have to say though that I love the cleanser and the moisturizer (which I use as a body and hand lotion) and have re-purchased many times. However BP

      Starting The Regimen Day 1 Completed

      I am so so so so happy to hear this my dear! You deserve this so much! I decided to come here less often as I was becoming a little obsessive. I will continue to update my log but not every day and with more meaningful update. All I can say is that I had a good few days as well but I don't want to rush and write about it until I make sure this is for real. My skin was becoming really dry and look bad because of this so I am trying the night time only again. I will continue to play around wi

      Starting The Regimen Day 1 Completed

      It's nice that you have a real life friend going through this without you! I think it's a good idea to count the actives I might try that myself :) Happy to hear you are improving. I had a good day as well! :)
    7. Amazing ladies, thanks for all the info. So far I really like the almay. My skin looks terrible & dry so no matter what I put on looks ugly but it hasn't broken me out at all! I'm so happy about that. I haven't tried the physician's formula yet. I want to ensure almay is 100% good for me and then test out physicians formula. It's all about introducing one product at a time to nail it night! Mystory

      clears out acne as long as you take it Messes up your hormones so that when you stop it your acne will come back 10X worse in places you've never had acne before This will clear out your acne while you're on it. However, as soon as you stop, your acne will become worse than it used to be. I never had acne on my face before taking Diane 35. When I stopped it, I started getting persistent cystic acne on my cheeks. It's really only a quick fix which in the long run will damage your system
    9. Hi Anons and welcome to the board! Your story sounds a lot like mine. I'm also trying to clean up damage done from diane 35 birth control pill (if someone is reading this and thinking of starting this pill for acne, DON'T! it will make you acne worse when you decide to stop it and you can't stay on the pill forever). I wish you the best of success! Mystory
