Evening Primrose Oil and Hormonal Acne

Beauty

If you follow my blog, you will know I have tried every kind of cleanser and potion for my skin, with no effect. I have tried 3 different types of contraception pills and implants (which by the way, made things hella worse!) and even antibiotics prescribed by my GP.

Next on my list is Evening Primrose oil. I used to take this religiously when I was a teenager as I was a big sufferer of (or my mum was) mood swings. As a teenager, I did not have spots. None. Not even if I was due on my period.

“Evening primrose oil hormonal acne treatment hinges upon its ability to maintain hormonal balance in the body which in turn helps to offset the associated complications such as acne breakout and mood swings.

Cystic acne is also caused by hormonal fluctuations and overactive sebaceous glands and as such, evening primrose oil is usually an effective treatment. It may take time though, so don’t be one of those people who try evening primrose oil acne cyst treatment and give up before they can see the results.”

COULD THAT HAVE BEEN WHY?!?!?! I can’t remember when or why I stopped taking evening primrose oil and I can’t exactly remember when my adult acne started – so I can’t make any connection. Damn it.

There is only one way to find out!

Today I have been into town and bought myself a tub of the stuff. I will take one┬átablet a day and after 6 weeks, if not before, I will write another post with photographic evidence of improvement – you guys have no idea how tightly I have my fingers, legs and everything else crossed as I write this!

Stay tuned and wish my skin luck!
