I haven’t seen too much information regarding acne and Fibromyalgia but when my symptoms became intense, so did my acne. Grossness.
Here I was 28, single, in some pretty serious pain with the skin of a 14 year old. There were days I seriously wanted to stay home because my skin was so bad. I’ve always been pretty self-conscious of my skin, having suffered breakouts as a teen. Luckily, when I was in college I went on birth control and my skin cleared up. I had no idea that it was the pill that cleared my skin, I thought I had grown out of it.
Imagine my surprise and chagrin when my skin went berserk. I tried everything sans acutane (and I even considered that for a second). Proactiv was no longer working.
I began switching and failing. I tried neutrogena skin id, murad, clean and clear and a million products from my dermatologist. I spent hours on acne.org and other chat spots for acne.
I finally tried Burt’s Bees Acne kit and was really surprised because it actually worked! I don’t use it per their directions. I use the face wash, only use the moisturizer in the winter and put the spot treatment over my entire face. I also use proactive sulfur mask in the summer. This seems to be a really good combo.
Please don’t think that this is an infomercial for Burts. I’m not 100% clear. I still get zits, especially close to that time or when it’s really freaking humid (like right now – hello 14 year old face, I haven’t missed you). However, this is by far the best it’s been and I would recommend it to anyone.
When you already feel like crap, the last thing you need is to look like crap too! 🙂
