For me, I was breaking out along my jawline and was getting horrible cystic acne. I was on ortho-tricyclene too. I was getting my eyebrows down by an awesome esthetician. She also did facials, facial products, etc. So, I asked her about my face.

She said, go to your GYN and switch your b/c pills. What is happening to your skin is hormonal. I switched to Yasmin, and I haven't broke out that bad since. I then went to my doctor, and had them run some blood work to make sure everything was in order. Everything came out fine, yet I still breakout at my age. I believe my acne and related problems are hormonal.

Good luck ;-)
