I accidentally stumbled across this natural skin supplement and it replaced my hormonal acne medication! It’s filled with Vitamin C, Collagen, and Biotin, and it’s been so much more effective than my acne medication. Here’s a little review.
It’s time to talk, AGAIN, about hormonal acne.
I’m like a broken record over here — let’s talk about hormonal acne!
I’m discovering that, like anything in our lives, dealing with hormonal acne is a marathon — not a sprint. I’ve tried so many things over the years, many of which have worked and are still working, but it’s an ongoing effort.
My body is constantly changing and adjusting and most likely no one solution is going to work forever.
I was on acne medication from my dermatologist for almost 6 months last year.
Last year I went on acne medication for the first time in a few years. My dermatologist prescribed Spironolactone, which is actually a blood pressure medication, but is also used to heal hormonal acne because it reduces the hormone, aldosterone.
I was on it for about four months before it began being less effective. I was on a low dosage, so I bumped my dosage up, which helped for a little while.
I didn’t want to be on it long term, and when it wasn’t working, even at a higher dosage, I went off of it completely. Of course my acne flared up again.
The natural supplement I took to replace my acne medication
Then in September, a package from a PR firm arrived at my house with a Love Wellness supplement in it. It was called Good to Glow and it was a natural supplement packed with Vitamin C, collagen, biotin, and more.
When I’ve taken collagen and biotin in pill or powder form on their own, it had actually made my skin break out more, but the reviews of this supplement were so good that I decided to give it a try.
Within three days I noticed a difference. I was still dealing with breakouts, but no new breakouts were appearing. Typically I wake up with a new blemish every day or two, but suddenly several days in a row that wasn’t happening.
So I continued to take it, of course, wondering if it was just a fluke.
The results after taking this supplement for 4 months
I wish I had some before and after photos, but honestly I didn’t expect to see these kinds of results.
I took it for two weeks, and since my breakouts were healing and no new breakouts were coming, I ordered a three month subscription.
I took this supplement from September to December, and have had the most consistently clear skin that I’ve had since I was pregnant 4 years ago.
Do I still get breakouts here and there? YES. Always the week leading up to my monthly cycle. But if I don’t pick and I leave them alone, they heal quickly and my skin stays in good shape.
Here are some other things I love about this supplement:
- It’s an all natural supplement that I can take long term
- It’s safe for all ages, so even teenagers can take it if they’re dealing with acne
- The capsules are small and easy to swallow and have no bad taste
- It’s super affordable. $17/bottle, and if you sign up for a monthly subscription, it’s even less expensive (also I have a “$20 off an order of $40 or more” coupon HERE)
Other plans I have for my ongoing skincare
Is this supplement the end all be all for my skin? No, of course not. I’m still using my great skincare from SkinLiv (I wrote all about that HERE), and this year as things are opening back up a bit, I’m planning do skin peels and laser treatment at a local place.
But it’s an incredible find I stumbled upon, it gets amazing reviews for others, and when I mentioned it on Instagram last week, I got a ton of questions about it.
If you’ve struggled with hormonal acne, try this!
So if you’re struggling with hormonal acne, and feel like you’ve tried it all, give this supplement a try!
Love Wellness also has tons of other supplements that I have not tried, but I think they look amazing. And use the $20 off coupon (on orders over $40) if you decide to try it out!
