Acne and hormonal treatment
Many women benefit from taking an oral contraceptive to help with their acne flare-ups. Another option is Sprinolactone which also addresses this hormonal type of acne. I suggest you consult a board certified dermatologist who has experience with acne and also speak to your gynecologist as well. Many patients like the Clarisonic brush as well as benefiting from Oxygen facials and microdermabrasion for acne.
Acne and Menstruation
In addition to choosing the right oral contraceptive, a good skin care regimen is also very important. Keeping your skin clean with a gentle cleanser and practicing good skin hygiene is key. Topical and oral antibiotics may also be used. Finding a physician to direct your efforts would be ideal. Just remember, it takes several weeks before you see results of the regimen you start. So be patient.
I would actually advise against using the Clarisonic as its use may be too abrasive for your skin. I hope you find this information helpful and good luck!
