Post OTC Lo

anyone take this?

i took the regular 0TC in like 1996.. it helped my skin but i gained way to much weight. i'm wondering if the low dose can clear up my skin w/out packing on the pounds.

I'm using OTC Lo after having success with OTC. I haven't had one breakout since starting but that could also be due to everything else I use to try to prevent acne.

What else are you using besides the OTC?

Morning:
Splash lukewarm water on face, dry, and apply jojoba oil.

Night:
Wash with 4% BP wash, apply clindamycin, take 100 mg minocycline. Wait about an hour, then apply jojoba oil.

I also responded on the other board, but that was only about weight gain (or lack thereof).

I got completely clear with Yasmin, but since I've been on OTC-Lo, my skin has stayed clear. When I was on the regular OTC, my skin did not get better.

My skincare regimen consists of Purpose Moisturizing Foaming Cleanser, Paula's Choice 1% and 2% BHA, and Alpha Hydrox 10% AHA Enhanced Creme (or the gel when I can find it).

I was on Yasmin for 4 months before everything was totally clear. I did get an initial breakout in the first month. My acne used to appear mostly around my mouth and jawline areas. I switched because it caused me to gain weight (though it doesn't for others).
