Hey, how's it going? I was on ortho-trycyclen for close to 4 years. It worked like a charm....but then about a year ago my skin started acting up. It's been a constant struggle ever since. I switched to ortho-try lo for two months last spring and broke out pretty awful from it. I got back on my reg. ortho tri...and have had no improvement...still hormonal breakouts on the lower half of my face/chin/mouth area. Anyways, I have just switched to Yasmin after hearing such wonderful things about it. It's not even been a week...but I"m hopefully that by the holidays I'll be looking better. we'll see.
I was using tazorac on/off since the summer and it hasn't been that great to me. It can be really drying and I peeled alot on it. I'm really not a fan, but I did not use it faithfully. I've tried differin in the past and that did absolutely nothing for me too. I never used Retin-A micro. I am off to the derm tomorrow so we'll see what he recommends. I'm hoping to get on bactrim for a short time.
I love the mint julep mask too. I use it a few times of week. What do you use for a moisturizer? My oilyness is really bothering me and I wonder if my moisturizer is making things worse...who knows.
oh well...keep me posted on your yasmin progess : )
