Hormonal Acne Help

I ALWAYS get at least 3 to 4 pretty big zits on my cheeks/chin/jawline about a week or so before my period is going to start. I know many people who have said birth control helps but I really don't want to go on that. I've also heard that taking things like Antibiotics can help with this also but they make me sick. So is there any natural vitamins or anything that you girls take to help with this problem?

Re: Hormonal Acne Help

Look up vitamin B6, that can help PMS symptoms (which includes acne).

Also, zinc has been known to help acne but it can also be dangerous to take long-term. Talk to your doctor about this.

Birth control can help with hormonal acne, as can antibiotics. I was on amoxicillian for years and it messed with my body so I'd suggest to stay away from that.

Do you have a daily and nightly routine for your face?
