As promised, I’d like to share with you how I managed to outplay my bout with acne. Fortunately, I met this wonderful OBGyne who fairly pointed out that the products I used were totally impractical due to the fact that the dilemma was not with my skin but more than that. We dug down to the very root of my dispute. After all the smart talk with her, she prescribed me an oral contraceptive. This is no ordinary pill. It corrects the hormonal imbalance. I didn’t know that birth control pills actually had other uses apart from its main string.
I’ve been taking it for over a year now. I am well-pleased of what it has done to me. Take a look at how I looked like after 6 months of taking Althea.
To somehow conceal the redness and foul pus, I put on some BB cream.
I didn’t use this long because I found out that this wasn’t suitable for my oily skin. At the time, my face was way too greasy! 😀 By happy chance, I got a new one from Etude House.
This one is recommended for oily skin type. I’ve been an avid user for almost 2 years now.
After over a year, this is what my face looks like now:
I’m glad to say that the pimples hardly pop up. That being said, my confidence has come to life. What I’m working on now is getting rid of the acne scars. 😀
Thanks to these compelling products as well:
One wash of my face is certainly not enough, I need this to dig out the deep-seated dirt and excess oil.
I like how it works well on my skin. 🙂
My face has become less oily since I started doing this beauty regimen. 😉
Having a Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is one heck of discouragement and hassle. It makes your skin obnoxious to some extent. You tend to have mood swings. And worst of all, it MAY deprive you of giving birth. Scary, isn’t it? However, I’ve learned not to chicken out of something that needs to be faced. If you have this syndrome, don’t take it negatively, but make yourself brave enough to defeat the battle. 🙂
