  1. Just found your post and wanted to chime in! For reference, I am a 32 year old female with persistent hormonal chin acne. I'll spare you my history, but I started using Olay Regenerist products about 3 weeks ago, and I love them! However, I still incorporate benzoyl peroxide on my chin area because if I don't use it, I pay for it. I used to use so many products with BP and I think I was overdoing it, but I find if I still use a BP lotion (at night only), then it keeps my chin breakouts a
  2. Acne runs in my family, both sides, male and female. However, I'm the only one who still has it as an adult...almost 33 years old. It's hard, but when I'm at a family gathering and I glance around at everyone, I see that we all have some sort of personal physical struggle - most of them with their weight, some with other skin issues like eczema or psoriasis, others with alcohol or drugs, miserable relationships. Boy, what a mess we must look like! I hate that I still struggle with acne at th
  3. I'm glad you joined this site, because you will find lots of support here. We can all relate to each other to some degree. My heart breaks for you in regards to the way your family has treated you. I also experienced unsolicited advice from family, but never downright cruelty! That is disgraceful. I would open up to your husband about how you're feeling. You may be surprised at how sensitive and understanding he will be. I am 32 and I met my husband when I was 19. My acne wasn't t
  4. That's what we're all here for, right? To be supporitve and helpful...most of us haven't found that anywhere else but here. So if I provided that for you, I'm glad From what I understand, saw palmetto is pretty safe, so you should be okay. I have an appointment with my doctor in April, so I'll talk to her then. Take care!
  5. I guess I should probably talk to my doctor...she knows I'm struggling with persistent hormonal chin acne, and she's usually pretty open to "alternative" treatments. Maybe she can tell me if taking saw palmetto is too risky. I've heard so many great things about it, I really want to try it! Congrats to you I'm happy for you that you're seeing results, and thanks for sharing with the rest of us!!!
  6. Are you taking saw palmetto and birth control pills? I read somewhere on here that saw palmetto can affect bcp...I''m dying to try saw palmetto, but I don't want to risk the effectiveness of my bcp...my husband and I have two kids and we're not interested in anymore, lol Any thoughts?
  7. Thank you for sharing your deeply personal struggle with acne. I think a lot of us can relate to some extent, and you will find lots of support here. As far as calling out sick because of a breakout...been there, done that. My husband is very supportive and tries his best to understand, but when I've called out because of it...I know he thinks I'm overreacting. But unless you've been through it, you just don't understand.
  8. I totally agree about restricting sun exposure. I am very fair skinned and I have always been diligent about avoiding the sun, and I know it has been key
  9. I would definitely be interested...being almost 33 years old and still dealing with acne, I'm also looking into anti-aging skincare that won't aggravate my acne-prone skin. Great idea!
  10. Thank you all for sharing . I think it helps to know that others have had similar experiences.
  11. @jabberwocky80 - Those are definitely some rough situations that you experienced ;(. I think the worst was the one involving your in-laws...they should have defended you and put that girl in her place! @RedRuby - Mortifying! I love how everyone thinks they know how to cure acne...and most of these people never had acne!
  12. @AyeAye - What a bittersweet story...that he encouraged you to remove your makeup, but then was kind of shocked. But it sounds like you had a good few years together! I'm enjoying these stories too
  13. Welcome to you both. I can honestly say that you will find this site supportive and informative
