Mim spent thousands on masks, scrubs, washes, and lotions which claimed to be effective at stopping acne. When they failed to meet their claims, the fallback excuse would be due to “hormonal acne”, which can’t be controlled.
She starting taking contraceptives in an effort to regulate her hormones and she also took antibiotics and prescription topical medication but they did not have a lasting effect to slow down the breakouts.
In addition, the prescription topical lotion had an over-drying effect causing her skin to overcompensate by producing extra oil and leaving her face constantly with an oily sheen. She discontinued using the prescription topical lotion but remained on antibiotics.
“I had been to the doctors several times and was given antibiotics and prescription topical creams which were harsh and burnt a layer off my skin. The over-drying effect caused my skin to overcompensate by producing extra oil, leaving my face constantly with an oily sheen. I even tried cutting out refined sugars and dairy and it didn’t work.” – Mim P.
