  1. Look forward to hearing from you soon. X
  2. I've sent you a PM, but I've just read the update on the thread. That's exciting news !!! So glad he's proved all of us wrong...phew ! Lol. X
  3. Can any one recommend a topical that can help oil reduction ? Would calamine lotion help ? Thanks
  4. Hey Mesha,I forgot to respond to your PM but I will soon. Just wanted to ask if you tried honey masks. Zinc can be a bit drying, esp. in the winter. Hi wishclean, Thanks for responding :) I haven't tried a honey mask, I'm very nervous about using one as my skin is now so sensitive, for example , if my hair brushes against my face I usually end up with a breakout on that area. I am not doing the caveman regimen as such, but I've only washed my face in warm water for about 6 months and I do
  5. Due to the onset of winter in the uk I am experiencing blotchy, dry, cracking , bleeding and painful skin. I have been using a zinc gel on my active acne during the summer and have still been applying it this past week but I really need to put something on my skin that won't cause a flare up, but that will aid healing and that I can maybe apply once every couple of days. I have extremely dry skin, but it also has a tendency to be combination also. Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated. Thank
  6. Disheartened today. Ist day of my period and 3 big and very painful acne's, one on my shoulder (?) One on my hair line and one above my lip. The joy of hormones. Still waiting to have my bloods done for hormone testing, too under weight at the moment, collapsed at last attempt. Still, at least its the weekend , so I don't have to leave the house
  7. That's you, most of us aren't gonna be past out early twenties with it. I've had it twice before. Both times treatments cleared me for approx 10 yrs. Then it came back. I hope everyone is sucessful in finding a treatment that works. Had it twice what do you mean?? Like I said, most people outgrow it in their early 20s. I had acne at 15, I don't remember having any treatement so I'm guessing I grew out of it ? I didn't have it by the age of 16. When I was 27 it came back. I had treatment

  10. I'm 41 heitea..and I'm tired of it. Tried to avoid mirrorr checking but just gave up with that today and carried the compact about with me. Heart plummets to the floor at each check. Look / don't look..its still there.
  11. Monday mornings are bad enough, without 3 new bumps and a white head on my chin. I'm told old for this...
  12. I've done some reading and research in relation to the info you have given and its quite possible that I have a rise in estrogen during the luteal phase, with not enough progesterone to balance things out. At least now I have a better understanding. I think I'm doing all I can regarding my diet and supplements. Also, thanks for the information about the progesterone creams. I'll certainly look into that too.
  13. Thanks for your reply , hearts. Yes, I agree it's strange. Most women flare up the week before and during and looking back, I do remember this happening to me also, occasionally. But as a general rule, I'm usually the clearest I can be the week before and the days during. It's odd. I tend to flare up at my worst during and after ovulation and then this lasts until the week before I'm due again. I do try to have a clean diet and I avoid plastics . I have cut all dairy, sugar and have incre
  14. Hi, Do any of you ladies know why acne almost clears the week before and the 4/5 days during the menstrual cycle? I have read and learnt lots of useful things from you all on here , but I can't find the answer to that particular question. Is it because androgens are lower at this time in the cycle ? (I don't take any BC) Thanks, in advance.
