Using Estro-Sense In Combination With The Birth Control Pill To Clear Acne
Posted Jun 23 2009 4:47pm
I’ve already blogged a bit in the past about using the birth control pill to clear acne at a surface level, but have not mentioned the supplement Estro-Sense before.
This supplement can be used in conjunction with the birth control pill to help break down the estrogen in your body. This means a reduction in side effects for those of us girls who experience them while on the pill (nausea, fatigue, brain fog, depression, etc).
It is not my job to tell you whether or not you should be taking the birth control pill to clear your acne. This is a personal decision you will need to make for yourself. As I mentioned in the video, you need to keep in mind that the pill is just clearing the acne at the surface level, so the root cause will still be there and may possibly still be there once you go off the pill which means the acne may return.
But I also understand that sometimes, and especially in cases of severe acne or a severe emotional response to your skin condition, a surface level treatment like this can be okay to give you the time and energy to focus on the root cause of your acne. But as I said, I’m just here to give you the facts but ultimately the decision is yours.
And for those of you who are considering taking the pill to clear your acne, please consult with your doctor on the best options available to you. There are some brands of the pill that do a good job at clearing the skin for most women, but there are brands of the pill that can make the skin worse so it’s important to get the best one.
