I’ve been struggling with acne for over 10 years now. I was diagnosed with PCOD in 2019, which finally helped me understand the reason behind this painful condition. I have tried everything under the sun - toothpaste and baking soda? Tried it. Lemon juice and hydrogen peroxide? Yes, I tried it. Gram flour and turmeric powder? Yes (crying in yellow) 🤦🏻♀️ The trouble with home remedies is that while they may help clear out a pimple or two, in the face of hormonal cystic acne, the only remedy is professional care. After years of causing trauma to my skin, the only two things that truly healed my skin were - 1. Lifestyle change - Eating on time, sleeping on time and getting some light exercise in beats any other kind of treatment you can find. 2. Medication - if your doctor suggests OTC topical ointments and birth control pills, consider taking them. Disclaimer: Please do not use any medication without consulting a medical professional first.
