Help! my period just ended and now i'm breaking out!

for some reason i always tend to get POST-menstrual breakouts (is that weird), and the time has come. is there anything i can do to prevent it or heal it faster? (it's fairly mild... but still!) please help!

Hi. Talk to your doctor about switching to a birth control pill called Diane35 or Dianette. It contains an oestrogen and an anti-androgen to block the effects of androgens on your skin. Androgens are the hormones responsible for stimulating the grease-glands in your skin. If you have high levels of androgens or are particularly sensitive to their effects you may get acne.
