Give me an A for Acne......

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi Ladies, I hpe this post findds you all well? I have noticed yet another symptom of peri...Acne that seems to be getting worse. As a teenage I never had acne, now I am 51 and in peri the acne seems to be catching up to me and making up for lost time ha ha. The acne is mostly on my face but also on the backs of my arms, near the shoulder and the right arm seems to be worse than the left.... Have any of you ladies had similar issues with acne and what is the best to use to help clear it...I am currently taking herbal supplements for the peri symptoms and trying to up my intake of fresh fruit & vegies. Look forward to hearing from you all. Take care, Anna x

    Yes....yet another peri symptom that seems to worsen as our hormones fluctuate.  I'm 54 and still when it's around time for my period to start..even when it doesn't, my face breaks out.  It's always the same spots..two on my forehead and a few on my  chin.  I find it also happens when I eat too many carbs or sugar too.  When II have a breakout I increase my water intake and take some extra vitamin A and C.  That seems to help.

    Yes i never really ever had spots apart from one around my period which always seemed to appear on my forhead which felt painful always! now i get a few pop up now and again on my face, i do use bio oil on my face so that probably doesnt help but the oil never gave me spots before .

    Right now, I'm sporting a sore spot under my lip on the left side. I also seem to be getting spots like this on my scalp and they're painful. I've never had acne but did get a few spots sometimes before a period. It's bad enough I have telephone wires growing out of my chin, (I'm a woman and don't want a beard..arghh!), but now the spots too. I should back off with the junk food and sweet stuff as it doesn't help. 

    I do get quite a bit of oily grease now down the sides of my nose. Lol, we've got teenager symptoms but our bodies say otherwise. Good luck with it Anna x.
