My hormonal acne skin journey
I don’t know about you, but I’m 31, and I feel like i’ve tried every topical treatment under the sun that’s targeted towards acne prone skin.
Sadly non of which have really helped clear up my hormonal adult acne. They usually just caused my dry skin to become even more tight, uncomfortable and thirsty! Benzoyl peroxide is not my friend.
My hormones have been completely out of whack for a long time. A mixture of being on different contraceptive pills when I was younger, pregnancies, and the contraceptive implant put in my arm for three years (worst thing I ever had!)
The entire time my skin was just screaming out at me, with incredibly painful cystic acne on my face & back. Along with a ‘monthly’ cycle that was all to pot.
Letting my hormones regulate naturally
I thought maybe it was time to let my body try and regulate my hormones naturally, rather than giving it a constant drip of progesterone into my bloodstream.
So thats exactly what I did. The doctor removed the implant from my arm, and I waited patiently to see if my skin would magically clear up.
A whole year passed and things were slightly better, but I was still suffering with painful adult acne. Mainly along my cheeks, chin, jawline & back.
Fixing the root cause of adult acne
This was when I decided to look at fixing the root cause of my acne, rather than trying to treat the relentless symptoms.
After doing some research on how to balance your hormones naturally, I stumbled across Pore Favor (previously The Anti-Acne Club)
Pore Favor’s Skin Supplement reviews all seemed far too good to be true. Perhaps it’s just me, but I’m always a little skeptical when 99% of reviews are positive! At £25 a pot, I didn’t want to waste more money on yet another acne gimmick.
But with my self confidence at rock bottom, I ignored my doubts and ordered in a months supply.
Within a couple days the clear skin supplements had arrived, and I began taking two capsules every morning after eating my breakfast.
Side effects of Pore Favors skin supplements
For the first two days I experienced intensely savage headaches. Not something that I usually have problems with!
Pore Favor do give you the head’s up this can happen so I wasn’t alarmed, and by day three I felt as right as rain again. Astoundingly, within a week of taking the supplements my acne skin was already starting to transform.
The redness was reducing from my active acne, and it wasn’t as tender.
Second week of treating my adult acne
Week two felt as-though I was heading in the wrong direction when my skin started to purge. Personally, for me, this was nothing too crazy.
Although I gained some spots, these new unwanted arrivals cleared much quicker. They were far less tender than usual too.
Tip: If you give these a try, please don’t get disheartened when you experience a purge. It will get better again, and the Pore Favor team are always just a message away if you have questions.
Acne results after three weeks of supplements
On to my third week of consistently taking two Pore Favor supplements every morning. This week was pretty much the same as the previous, the only difference being the purging was less intense.
I also happily began waving goodbye to those small under the skin bumps.
One month progress clearing my hormonal adult acne
By the end of week four I was seeing a dramatic change in my skin. Painful cystic acne finally seemed to be a thing of the past, and any new breakouts that appeared were much smaller.
Visibly seeing these drastic improvements in such a short space of time was pretty exciting. I ordered in another months supply and continued on my skin transformation journey.
Clearing my cystic acne
By the end of the second month my skin had completely transformed, I couldn’t believe how well this product had worked.
My skin was looking far healthier, clearer and way more radiant too. The skin supplements also hadn’t made my dry skin turn into a flakey disaster (unlike everything else I had tried before)
Instead my skin felt smooth, soft and most importantly – pain free!
My results after taking Pore Favor skin supplements for three months
The results just keep getting better and better.
This might sound dramatic, but Pore Favor’s skin supplements have made such a difference to my life. Not only in my skin, but in my self confidence too.
I will continue to take them, reducing the amount down to one capsule per day in month four.
A few thoughts on the acne clearing supplements
Firstly, the capsules don’t taste horrible and are an easy size to swallow. They aren’t the chalky tablets either that start dissolving the moment they touch your tongue. You know the sort.
Every-time i’ve placed an order, i’ve received my package within two working days. Can’t fault their speedy delivery, even during a global pandemic. Very impressive.
These acne supplements actually work on my dry acne prone skin! I’ve always found everything to do with spots/acne is targeted towards people with oily skin, and i’m right at the other end of the scale. But this didn’t! It’s 100% suitable for people with oily skin too though.
£25 a month for such amazing results. Worth. Every. Single. Penny. (Grab 10% off using my code ROOSTANDROAMCOUK at checkout)
Thank you Pore Favor for making a vegan, cruelty free product that ACTUALLY works. Look at those results after only three months!

I really hope these tablets help you as much as they have helped me. It’s now over a year on, and i’ve still not had any cystic acne back on my face. I really can’t recommend these supplements enough!
