Acne - please help!
I have written to you before and my mum also writes to you quite a lot as we both use the cream.
I am suffering with Acne and have done for years. I am 20 years old and have been using progesterone for 6 months now - it clears up and comes back again and is now getting me down.
I use a heaped half a tablespoon every night and a normal half a teaspoon in the morning, smothering it all over my face, chest and tummy. I find my spots get either really bad then all go and I have the nicest clearest skin.
I would like to change my diet, or find out where I am going wrong. My daily food intake is eggs in the morning or yogurt and oats, salad/sandwich for lunch and meat and veg for dinner. Throughout the day I drink lots of water and a couple of cups of white tea.
What foods should I be avoiding? It is worth cutting out Dairy and Carbs as I have read that that causes Acne for some people? I know Soya is a no go.
I also bleed every 8-10 for around 3 days. Is this my hormones trying to get back to normal?
I look forward to hearing from you - thank you for your ongoing help.
