Acne is caused primarily by clogging of skin pores due to dirt accumulation and excessive production of sebum or body oil so my dermatologist suggested for me to take pills because she said the cause of my Acne is my over active hormones. So in a few months my face cleared up but I could only take the birth control pills for my acne over a period of three months. My Acne Free Skin only lasted for (3) three months. After that period my problem came back again. Making me feel worsts than ever. I got so upset by my Acne that I started to pick on them and instead of getting rid of them I made them last longer. Geez I am so stupid! I did not only scarred my face but my life as well, because those scars made me depressed. I will cry sometimes because I felt so left out and I am embarrassed with my Acne.
Then I started using Tretinoin, which strips off my skin of the first layer and in the process making my skin thinner:-(.
Don’t get me wrong, I simply believe all those commercials. I saw the commercials of those products and I was made to believe that they’re all safe. Yeah, I know, you are right, I am so trusting. I believe what those marketers convey on tv and in the process makes my skin health worsts than ever before. I felt like I am a lowly individual. It is only later that I learned that prolong usage of Hormonal pills, which are mainly indicated as a contraceptive sometimes causes water retention, weight gain, mood swings, and in the long run, even breast cancer.
