  1. Hi all. So I was on accutane back in 2013 with great success. However, back in November I had a breakout that was a little worse than usual. I wasn't too worried because I tend to get these in a very minor form still a week or so before my time of the month. However, at the same I had been to see a doctor because I was having issues with painful periods, bad PMS etc and she recommended that if I wanted a natural solution I should try Evening Primrose Oil. I started taking these with grea

    Hey y'all. Just an update on my skin, this photo was taken today, April 1st, 2014. I have recently begun taking beta carotene again (after weeks of being without it), & I have also added a mixed capsule of fish oil, borage oil, & flax, plus a primrose oil supplement (supposedly it helps to balance a woman's hormones). I also plan on taking a probiotic I purchased regularly as well because I'm trying to restore my "good" gut bacteria. Topically, I have been doing a lot of Glycolic acid
  3. I have had acne since I was 12 years old. I have been taking Dianette on and off for years, untill recently I quit because of the bad side effects. I have stopped taking Dianette for about 5 monts now and having a huge acne breakout for months and really depressed about it. My periods are regular. But I get really bad acne flare ups during ovulation and a minor flare up right before the menstruation. I have cystic acne, blackheads and pustules. I have tried Vitex Agnus Castus for two months
  4. Hi, I'm new to this board but I wanted to share what has worked (really worked) for me. I'm a 27 year old female, I've suffered with chronic cystic acne for the past 6 or so years. Before that it was more topical, but still constant and pretty severe. Let me be clear (no pun intended), when I say chronic cystic I mean up until around Nov 2012, I haven't been "break out free" for more than a 1-2 days at a time. Just when I felt like my skin was improving, it was back....and it was BAD. I

  6. I've been taking 2000mg of Borage oil and 2400mg of Lecitihin for the past week and i've started getting acne around the eyebrow area, which has been pretty clear for a while. I've read that these two supplements are supposed to help, but so far it's not looking good. Has anyone experienced any break outs using these 2 supplements?
