Hormonal Acne Update

Still struggle with my battle with hormonal/cystic acne, but I've seen good days. Since mid January my skincare regimen consists of the Dr. Dennis Gross Color Smart Cleanser, Original Strength Alpha Beta Peel Pads, Clarifying Colloidal Mask, and now the One Step Acne Eliminating Pads. I also use a Trader Joe's Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil, Cetaphil Moisturizer, and Clindamycin topically. Today I also purchased the 30 day Clear Skin Solutions kit also by Dr. Dennis Gross. It comes with the mask and acne pads mentioned above, but also his All In One Foaming Cleanser ($36) and the Hydra-Pure Oil Free Moisturizer ($76).. all for $45. Great value!! 

The Color Smart Cleanser and Alpha Beta Peels my complexion looked so bright and clear (aside from ovulating and my favorite time of the month 😑👎). My skin was drastically clear of breakout, which overall made me feel great!! This month during ovulation my hormones got out of wack, so I decided to add the One Step Acne Eliminating Pads. I've heard great things about them combating acne.. including hormonal/cystic which is almost unheard of for something not prescribed. Let me just say.. it stings and itches so bad for like 20 seconds, but quickly subsides. With more use the sensations have decreased. I will alternate 15 days of the Ance Pads and 15 days of the Alpha Beta Peel Pads, so my face won't get used to either product and plateaue/revert back. So far I'm only on day 7 and I'm purging, which is fairly typical. I may tweak the alternating schedule if needed, and will update you on how the cleanser and moisturizer I received in the kit work for me as well. Never give up, and stay beautiful!!
