okay- so i used to shmoke everyday like 5 times a day- all the freakin time pretty much- and i had horrible cystic acne. then, i cut back a lot for various reasons and my acne got better- just on my lower cheeks and chin- but i just thought it was the antibiotics my derm gave me working.......then i decided to take a break from lightin up about a week ago- again for other various reason- and my skin has almost completly cleared!!! i just have some left over red marks and some stuff on my chin- which is female hormonal-not "usual" acne anyways......

so, i'm no medical genius so i could be completly wrong here- or it could just be my crazy fu<ked up hormones- but i really do think my little friend mary jane is the cause of my acne, well the main cause- that and some oily skin and internal problems......

now i know we all have tons of stoner friends with perfectly clear skin- i'm just saying- something in my paticular hormones get real messed up when i smoke- it is known that marijuana causes your testosterone levels to drop drastically then raise again- then that means the adrogens- i think that is what they are called- have to start rapidly producing to get the levels back up- and that is found to be one cause of acne, the overproduction of those adrogens.

so, just letting all you know- if you have tried tons of meds- cause i sure have- and had no success, just quit for a while- i know it is really really hard, i've almost smoked so many times this last week, but just test it out and see if maybe that is what is causing some of your skin problems........
oh yea- and it isn't the meds that my derm gave me working, she had me on antibiotics- but i stopped taking those a while ago anyways cause i was sick of them. other than that change, which was a while ago anyways, i haven't changed anything else about my facial regime except quitting shmokin.
