Question by Mimic: My skin is HORRIBLE. Please help?
I’ve had acne since I was 13, and I am now 18. I’ve tried EVERYTHING under the sun that I can afford. Differin, Retin-A, Retinol, Finacea, Proactive, Clearasil, clearafoam. I’ve tried countless pharmacy creams and face-washes. Now I’ve even tried herbal and natural remedies; lemons, tomatoes, green tea, aspirin-mask, honey, ginger. I have cut out ALL sugar and white flour from my diet. I have THE healthiest diet you ever saw. And i take a multi-vitamin every day. I get enough sleep and basically, I do everything right. I just dont know what to do anymore, my acne makes me so self conscious to the point I don’t want to go outside, or go to college, or do anything but hide! I was wondering if anyone has suggestions to what may be causing the acne and what I can do about it. Thanks for reading this, I know its kind of long. Please don’t suggest accutane because not only can I not really afford that, but I heard it has a lot of side effects I’m not willing to risk.

Well, I’m 14 and I had TERRIBLE acne. It was gross, I went to the doctor and he suggested that I should take birth control. I had to take the pill, not the shot. The shot gives you acne. But, After 3 months of taking it, my acne had really cleared up. I take showers every night before I go to bed, so my face is clean before I sleep, and I sleep with my hair up.

The reason that the pill works, is because it controls hormones. Hormones cause grease and pimples.

I hope this helped
