It claims to reduce lines etc but I only use it on acne. You apply it before bed and peel it off in the morning. I was extremely sceptical but my acne got so bad again after I stopped breastfeeding I found myself wearing foundation to the gym which I've never done.
It's not cheap. I have a friend who sells it but you can get it off amazon and eBay.

Just adding I used it around period time for a few months. After about 3 times I used it sparingly and now haven't used it for about 5 months. It's truly been amazing for my skin.

I'm definitely going to look into that product Sonja, thank you!
I took roaccutane as a teen and I'm not sure I'd do it again if I had my time over. The side effects were really quite life changing and a few years later I get acne again along my jawline, and sometimes it's really bad.
I can't take the pill anymore because of migraines.
I use Cetaphil products which are super mild. I must admit my skin is usually somewhat better when I'm eating well and drinking lots of water, but it's no guarantee.
I'm so over it, I'd try anything at this stage really. It definitely affects my self esteem and confidence.
Not sure that helps at all but you're not alone!

I really hope my kids don't get it but I'm pretty sure they will. Skincerity feels weird on and has a smell as it has acetone in it. I was worried about that but given I only use it around my jaw and nose I was ok with it.

Sonocare treatments, plus the acne skincare range at Ella Bache did the trick for me. Sonocare is ultrasound + lymphatic drainage massage. It took about 6 weeks of weekly treatments at $60 a pop, then monthly for a while, but it cleared my skin right up. I've had horrible acne around the jawline on and off since I was 18.
I had the treatment at Ella bache while pregnant with DD 2.5 years ago and my skin is still relatively clear.

Ella Bache is great. I'd use it on my kids if they need it.

Your GP can prescribe topical ointments safe for pregnancy. I found a dermatologist pretty unhelpful...just wanted to prescribe roaccutane which I refuse to take.
My plan, when I can afford it...is to have accupuncture to sort out my hormones. Currently my skin is quite good with topical ointments prescribed by my GP and a milder antibiotic (not safe for pregnancy), but I feel like I'm just reating the symptom, not the cause.

I had hormonal acne since my teen years. Large angry pimples on chin and neck.
I saw a dermatologist and took medication to sort it out ( roaccutane, best thing I ever did) but there are some things that I found have helped keep it under control long term.
I don't touch my face (even resting chin on hand is out).
I only wash my face after wearingmakeup- I found the washing and moisturising routine played havoc with oil production.
I use an AHA (liquid gold) on actual pimples- seems to help dry them up faster.
I'm also militant about not picking at pimples, it always made them worse.
Hope that helps
