Your question was: 4 months Post-Murad Acne Complex update.
You look absolutely terrific!! Congratulations!! Hope you stay clear..
Lol your 3.5 months looks like me nearly 2 months post-tane..
Wow, fantastic results... very encouraging, so thanks for posting pics!! I can't believe how smooth and porcelain your face is now, you would NEVER guess you had ever had problems with acne...
Thanks....the Murad Acne Complex really did change the entire texture of my skin...it still gets really shiny and oily when it's hot out, but my skin does feel really smooth and refined...although you can't see it in the after pics, I still have quite a bit of scarring and redness on my cheeks, but the front part of my face has stayed really clear...
Your skin looks awesome. What would you say the worst side effect from Murad Acne Complex was?..
The worst was the fact that my acne got so much worse before it got better! Like I said, most of the scarring I have is due to the really bad breakouts I got during the course...everything just seemed to get more inflamed than usual. Otherwise during the course I just generally felt like I had a low-grade illness all the time, like mono or something...fatigue, joint paints, difficulty concentrating, irritability....and just feeling dehydrated all the time. It wasn't intolerable, but it was bad enough that I elected to end after 4 months even though the derm said I could go up to 6 months if I wanted. The side effects all diminished within I'd say 2 months...except unfortunately for the excessive hair shedding, which seems to be an ongoing problem. But like I said, the negative psychological effects of having severe acne were so bad that it was totally worth it for me.Oh and I just wanted to add that my skin was by no means clear at the end of my 4 month course...you can see the second set of pics...it was pretty much the same at the end of month 4. I actually kept getting some acne for maybe a month after I stopped the course, then my skin really started to clear up and the red marks started to fade.
I still get some little inflamed pores on my t-zone or cheeks, but nothing you'd really notice. I'm really hoping the effects last so I don't have to take it again!..
Hey! wow thats great- some terrific results- I cant see any red marks or anything on your cheeks- thats encouraging because altho my skin is much worse than your is in your jan pic my cheeks are very full of red marks and if they even decrease by a fraction of what yours did I will be so happy!!! did you use any special products on your red marks to make them fade so well?x..
