i have been on benzaclin
for about a year. it works well for me. not 100% by any means, but it helps quite a bit. i go on and off depending on my mood. i HATE using it because it's a pain to have to keep applying it day in and day out. i also suffer from not wanting to go out in public. it's quite embarrassing when NO ONE ELSE has ANY acne. I'm a 32 y/o male and this is ridiculous. I KNOW stress and my 10 month old baby contribute to my acne. I haven't had a solid nights sleep in 10 months! Up 2-8 times a night! And I generally get 6 hours to sleep as it is. So 6 broken hours and a lot of work stress are the main culprits. Unfortunately those are a little out of my control for now.
I JUST received several soaps that others on this board recommended. I ordered them on drugstore *** com. Auromere Ayuvedic, one with Tulsee Neem and one with Sandalwood-Turmeric with Neem. Also ordered Chandrika Soap and Olive Oil Soap. I read that you should use the Olive Oil soap in the AM, the Chandrika in the afternoon if your skin is oily and you feel the need to freshen up, then the Auromere Ayurvedic Soap in the evening before bed. The difference between the two Auromere soaps is the Sandalwood-Tumeric is for oily-normal skin types and the Tulsi-Neem is for Dry to Normal skin. Don't overdue it though. Maybe the olive oil in the a.m. and the Auromere at night. I'm going to experiment. I'll try to keep you updated.
Look into those soaps though. I also will tell you I am trying to NOT use the benzaclin
. I don't want to rely on it for the rest of my life. I want to rely on good soaps, vitamins and a good diet.
Lemme know of any questions. [email][email protected]
