Hi,

My name is Georgina and I am 41 years old. I have recently gone through the early menopause. The changes this has caused to my skin have been horrific. The loss of estrogen has left my skin unable to control the sebum productions and I now have late onset acne.

I have started using a product called Aknicare and I wondered if there was anybody out there who has used this product? Any tips of food stuffs and cosmetics to avoid would be greatly appreciated.

Aknicare has helped a lot of people. How long have you been using it, and do you see any results?

I've give a week or 2 before I started seeing results. If no results, discontinue use.

I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and I have seen really good results.

I've had a look around this website and have come across some really useful information. I will definitely try and incorporate omega 3 more and watch my gluten intake.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its helpful in mild acnes. In severe acnes you have to go for isotretinion.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
