In this time of my life my goal really is to have good skin and by good I mean, as close to it being flawless. If you’ve been reading this blog for quite a while now, I’m sure you realized how I’ve been having pimples here and there on a monthly basis. Blaming my female hormones and red days as well as stress brought about by the holiday rush for this but I’m really tired of dealing with pimples–especially since I didn’t have any issues about them when I was younger.
I discussed about skin health months ago and how knowing a thing or two on how to get you started on taking care of your skin is very essential to keep skin issues manageable.
I’m a bit of an introvert so oftentimes I’m painfully shy. So imagine whenever I get pimples I get really insecure. If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (@gojackiego you guuuuys!) you know that sometimes I just make fun of a pimple popping here or there because really what else can I do aside from applying topical creams and concealing it with makeup?
After learning that there’s a beauty pill that can combat pimple, I knew I had to try it.
It’s called Lactezin and I wrote about it HERE. And as promised, I’ll give you guys update on its effects on me.
I tried it for 4 weeks (1 month) and here are some of my observations:
The first few days of taking Lactezin, I noticed small bumps were visible on my face. I panicked a little but thankfully they went away.
I don’t have oily skin so I didn’t notice any difference when it comes to skin conditions.
I didn’t suffer too much from skin irritations despite using different skin care products during the period I was taking it. No major breakouts for me like ones I used to have.
Some pimple marks have lightened but didn’t totally got erased. See first photo and photo below to compare the pimple marks. Quick tip: I use The Body Shop Tea Tree Stick to help lighten my pimple marks. 😉
I didn’t get any breakouts during the four weeks I tried Lactezin but I did get a pimple on my cheek. Then I figured it was my hormonal reaction because of my red days. After I had my period, clearer skin happened. Plus there’s that fresh face look (aka glow from within) that made me go makeup-free even when I’m out and about on some days.
This was photo was taken after taking Lactezin for two straight weeks. I only took it for two weeks and can say it did somehow improve my skin’s texture. As Lactezin promises it can make skin smooth & glow. It also address skin irritation, oiliness (but not applicable to me since I have combination skin) & pimples.
Did it work for me? Obviously it did. But since I didn’t continue taking it after a month, I couldn’t claim that I am totally pimple-free because I still do get pimples here and there–external factors such as trying new skin/makeup products, monthly period and stress can be causes of this–but hindi major yung breakout. I might consider taking it again as maintenance but since I’m taking a few supplements now, I just had to hold it.
Lactezin can help in clearing one’s skin but do consider other factors that can cause you to breakout or have pimples (like stress and pollution, food you eat, makeup/skincare products you use). Again, what worked for me may not work for you and vice versa so it’s best to consult your dermatologist if breakouts still persist.
I took the liberty of gathering some of your questions which you guys posted on my previous blog post about Lactezin and forwarded it to the brand. Please read their reply.

Lactezin is not a contraceptive. It is an over-the-counter drug that may be purchased without a prescription for the treatment and prevention of acne. It contains a breakthrough formulation of Lactoferrin, Vitamin E, and Zinc that when taken twice daily will lessen pimples in as early as 2 weeks.
Just to clarify, SRP of Lactezin is P20 per capsule?

Lactezin’s key ingredients (Lactoferrin, Vitamin E, Zinc) help combat pimples. It totally makes sense now that #skinhealth shouldn’t only be about taking care of our skin from the outside but having a complete skincare regimen includes beauty vitamins that can help us take care of our skin from within.
Results in taking Lactezin may vary depending on the user so it’s really better to consult your doctor first.
