In high school I had horrible breakouts and nothing I tried worked, until my Doctor recommended birth control. For years I’ve used birth control as a way to keep my skin in control (along with cleanliness of course)
My husband and I are hoping to start TTC within the next year so I stopped taking my birth control and it has been awful! No matter what I use or how much I wash I look like the same 15-year-old loser with bumps all over my face. I don’t know what to do 🙁
What products have worked for you ladies?

@Bella13: I used Proactiv about 5 years ago and it worked really well for about a year. Might be worth a try. Now, I stick to this routine and it works pretty well.
I also have known people who do well with The Oil Cleansing Method, which seems strange to me because it’s based on putting oil on your face, but I know multiple people who swear by it. http://www.theoilcleansingmethod.com/

I have a derm appt on Monday because my face is ridiculous. I’m 30 years old for goodness sake! I’ll let you know what the Dr says. I’m at my wits’ end just like you. (I was on BCP for 11 years and got compliments on my skin…it was bad for a few years in HS.)
