  1. This year, I've become increasingly frustrated with my acne since it has started appearing more frequently in strange places - like my forearms, hands, fingers, and stomach. While in the past I put my acne concerns on the back burner, recent events have made fighting this acne a much higher priority. It's at least somewhat socially acceptable to have acne on the face - or on the back and chest - but not other weird places. It's just scary and frustrating to think that I might not have any c
  2. (short version: I'm taking Zinc to lower my estrogen and Peppermint to block androgens - good idea?) Hello I've always been puzzled how Zinc cures some people's acne but in me made some of my hormonal symptoms better and yet made other symptoms like (like acne & excess hair worse) Zinc seems to work by lowering estrogen and blocking DHT (androgens) But in some people, I read it can actually increase DHT I also remember a girl on here telling me she took Progesterone thera

    Day 1 Curology

    So no matter how much I want things to clear my skin, that I used to be able to use on my skin, they don't work. I prayed and just sucked up my fear of dermatologists. I got an online dermatologist on curology because it's a lot less hassle! I didn't want to have to call my doc to get a referral for dermatology, call the dermatologist, go see the derm, and then go get a prescription. I have insurance but it still costs money and driving. I also don't like taking on the phone for some reason.
  4. Hey Everyone! Its been a while since I've been on this site. I took the I dont care about my acne anymore approach, and its really helped. However, I came across something that I needed to share. I have extremely oily skin. I love to drink tea, and lately i've been drinking Gingko Kava-Kava tea at my local coffee shop, which has spearmint leaves in it. After a week of drinking a few cups I noticed my skin didn't get as oily. So, I went out and bought some spearmint tea and it has
  5. I made a log for my progress on saw palmetto (and other anti-androgen herbs) about a year ago, which completely cleared my skin for a while. Over the summer I slowly started breaking out again and changed up my supplement routine a bit in response, but that didn't seem to help. Now, I have been on Yasmin for almost exactly 3 months (finish my third pack at the end of this week) and still haven't seen improvement. I remember how much making my last log helped me through a hard time and thought ma
  6. Hello, I'm trying a new, au naturale acne routine. (well, mostly natural ) Just curious if any ladies have seen success with supplementing spearmint into their diet. (capsules/tea or otherwise) I've recently discontinued using spironolactone because the side effects freaked me out. I'm looking to try 100% natural remedies to try and balance them hormones! FYI, doing surprisingly well off of spiro, but I'm totally dairy free now as well, which may have been most of my issue, anyway
  7. Hello everyone. I praise for your suggestions on my case. I am female, 34 years and i am back to hormonal acne after 7 years of clear face. In my early 20's i had irregular cycles, pcos and all that comes along. I was perscribed birth control pill and i got clear quickly ( good skin genes!). After about a year acne returned and it was severe. My gynecologist prescribed me again with the same pill. I took it for three constant years, no side effects at all, but after 3years i had eye problems. My
  8. Hey everyone. So i have a question that I'm sincerely confused about. I'm currently taking BC (Lutera) and i've been on it for a good 3 & 1/2 weeks. Unfortunately, I'm experiencing that IB (initial breakout). I have very tender white heads (a lot of pus) on my left cheek and a couple on my chin. I never really broke out on my left side, it was ALWAYS my right side so its odd. I only began BC to control my moderate acne. Thats the only single reason. Today i picked up organic Spearmint Tea af
  9. I took plan b in June and I had break out in my chin area. Its most like whiteheads and one cystic acne near my ears. Now my face has a lot of red marks… I have researched that saw palmetto and spearmint works so I took it last from two days ago. It immediately made my skin less oily. But I am concerned about possible side effects. I have read that these two herbs are anti-androgen which inhibits DHT and make testosterone converts into estrogen. This is not good! Also I have read people from in
  10. I've never posted on here before (but I stalk a lot of the threads!) and I finally thought I would, since my skin is currently the best it's been since I was 11/12 years old! The three dietary changes that I've made recently for my skin and overall health have been: -cutting out/reducing dairy -reducing coffee -ADDING spearmint tea I'm sure I don't have to say much about dairy, as many acne sufferers warn against ingesting much of it for various reasons. I recently realized I was bec
  11. I've been thinking about drinking 4 cups of tea daily. Green tea is an anti-androgen, but so is spearmint tea. Which anti-androgen is better: green tea or spearmint? Is it better to drink 2 cups spearmint and 2 cups green tea, or 4 cups green tea or 4 cups spearmint? (Or another combination?) Anyone tried this combo?
