Hey guys, just wanted to share my happiness with you all. I am using Yasmin birth control pills since the last 6 months and it has cleared my face completely! I have had acne for as long as I remember – with a minimum of 20 years history at least. I am 30 years old now and my skin has never felt better than it does right now. Till I started Yasmin, my skin and acne was getting progressively worse each year and I was so sure that there is no respite for me. I had painful cysts all over my jawline and my neck and the number of blackheads, whiteheads and pimples is just beyond counting. All of this started as soon as I hit puberty and then continued till my youth. Needless to say, I have never been very confident about my looks. But one of the worst hits for me was when a co-worker took a dig by making me her coffee time gossip. I overheard her gigging to a group of others and telling how all this oil on my face had to be a gift from some rich Arab whom I must be bedding. I cried myself to sleep that night. So sometime in October last year, my gynaecologist suggested that I try Yasmin birth control pills. Since I have tried every damn cream, pill and solution on the face of the earth, this was basically kind of a last measure for me. I have even been prescribed Ortho Tri-cyclen and it didn’t do a thing for me. So it was either Yasmin works or I have to move on to Accutane – something that I wasn’t willing to do. And can I say I am happy! Within 3 months of application, Yasmin started showing effects and by January my skin was so smooth and soft. I am acne free now and the few dark marks that are left over from my previous cysts are fast fading too. I actually don’t even remember when was the last time my skin felt this good. I think maybe grade 4 lol! To the ladies out there who are about to give up hope – don’t! Try Yasmin. And to those trying Yasmin and thinking it doesn’t work – hang on. It does work. Give it a few months.
