at the end of my tether! . . .


so i'm now 26 and going through yet another "don't want to leave the house" phase of acne. in fact i'm not sure if it's ever been this bad. i knew my skin would turn bad again when i came off the contraceptive pill but i didnt realise it would take a year for it to catch up with me. This time i'm going to try everything to get rid of it. i've just bought a load of "miracle cure" lotions potions and tablets but i don't hold much hope although i will try them and update on my progress on here.
failing that i will cut all junk out of my diet (not sure if i have the will power for this!)
failing that it's back to the doctors, and i hate going to the doctors like some people fear the dentist!
i did cure it once before, i took the pill Dianette, and used the gel Duac, but most importantly i went for 2 weeks of sun in the Dominican Repulic. unfortunatly the latter is not an option this time.
anyway i will keep people updated on what works and what doesn't.

Re: at the end of my tether! . . .

well i can already tell you that drinking lots of water for the past 3 months has made no difference as far as i'm concerned. i dont feel any healthier and my skin just keeps getting worse. the only difference i notice is needing the toilet every ten minutes!

Re: at the end of my tether! . . .

listen, dont stress, acne is normal and more common then you think. If you really want somthing to work, it worked for me and millions of others, but no one ever mentions it becuase its is a social taboo even though every part of the world has used this as a solution to many skin ailments. Use your urine. Put it in a little in a cup, take a cotton ball, dip, and apply to affected areas usually twice a day. If yours is really bad, reapply everytime you produce more urine, even over makeup, just a little dab on affected areas. Once you see inflamation go down and things look better, then start doing it twice a day. After you wash your face in the morning and night, apply. It will turn your life around. Once you feel u dont need it anymore then stop. If it comes back then reapply. It depends on your skin, as to how much stuff is hiding in you pores waiting to come out whether you should conitnue use, or stop. U dont have to tell no one. Oh yeah after you apply, let it dry, then use a clean regular moisturizer if you have dry skin. Just try it please, i have had those days before, wishing it was holloween everday. I just had an aweful breakout, and i did just that, 4 days later you could barely see traces of my cystic pimples. good luck.

Re: at the end of my tether! . . .

I can relate! I've tried EVERYTHING. I started using Clenzederm by Obagi a month ago - and it has really helped! At that time I also got cortisone injections to the larger cysts and they've deflated almost completely.

Oh, and as far as urine - I haven't tried it. But my aunt (not from this country) swears by it - and has flawless skin.

Re: at the end of my tether! . . .

Differin Gel (on prescription) helped me a lot. It is quite gentle but effective at unblocking pores and calming inflamation. You need to be persistent in using it: I've been told that you never see any effect in acne with anything used for less than 3 months.
In general, I dont like using antibiotics or hormones unless my life is in danger! I think they weaken the system, and can have a rebound effect when you stop.
