My story
Jun 13, 2006
Hi there. I don't come here too often, but I've been a member for a while. I'm 29 years old and suffer from mild hormonal acne. I've had 2 kids and both pregnancies my face was completely clear, not breakouts at all. Then about 6 months after I had each baby, I went back to having the monthly breakouts, probably about 4 pimples and maybe a few small ones throughout the month. I don't take bc pills, I stopped taking them when I got prego with my first. And I'm always afraid to go back on them, I tend to think they made my skin acne seemed to be worse when I was younger and on the pill.
Anyway, right now all I use is Alpha Hydrox cream at night and I wash with Purpose and use Purpose moisturizer in the am. I also use the Stridex Power Pads when I have a flare up.
I'm not real interested on going on any meds...I'm thinking the more natural route. I've heard some good things about Saw Palmetto...not sure if anyone here has had any really success with it. I just read the milk thistle thread as well...can you take milk thistle and saw palmetto at the same time?
Anyway, any help or advise anyone may have would be so nice. I'll be 30 in August and I'd love to get my acne under control!!
