PCOS in Black Women, Plus Skin Lightening/Conditions
We recevied a question from Alice, a young black woman living in the Orient. This has to be one of the best series of questions we’ve ever received. Thus, we’re dividing the segments in 2 (two) parts. Alice’s questions cover a myriad of related health and skin care conditions. Here is an excerpt from Alice’s question:
I just came across your post on YouTube today. I must say you are like God’s sent when I heard the wise information you shared about skin discoloration and problem from different causes.
I am of pure African decent so of course my skin is dark but not so black and am 34 years old. I suffer from PCOS a condition I didn’t know I had until I was diagnosed last year. Growing up I noticed large dark patches in between my thighs and groins, on the left side of my breast, and have very bad acne since young until now on my face, back and chest. I am not confident wearing a swimsuit as it exposes all my defected skin and neither can I wear any short dresses or shorts. I am ashamed of my skin and the only person who sees positiveness is my husband!
I also have varicose veins behind my knees and spiderweb veins on my right thigh. I have been searching for products to clear my acne and have spent so much money trying every other product. I am 17 weeks pregnant. I am aware that using your lightening products while I am pregnant is not a good idea, what about acne products?
There was more to the question, but to allow for Alice’s privacy, we omited certain sentences. So, if you suffer from PCOS (and it sees no color), you should watch Part 1 and Part 2 of this video. BTW…. Why not send Alice some words of encouragement if you too suffer or have suffered from PCOS!
