Have you tried countless beauty products and watched hours of YouTube videos by beauty vloggers on how to treat and prevent pimples, yet nothing seems to be working? Then keep reading my Lactezin review below.
There are a lot of factors that cause acne, it can be bacterial, stress, or hormones. And recently, by wearing face masks which we call “Maskne” and is considered a bacterial type too. So if your topical skincare products are not working anymore, maybe it’s time for an oral treatment. That’s what I did almost a week ago, I started taking Lactezin.
What is Lactezin?
I only recently got my hands on Lactezin, though my friend has been raving about this to me for months now after she found out about this while searching for the best way to prevent maskne.
Lactezin is a clinically-tested over-the-counter drug, which uses a natural antibacterial active ingredient called Lactoferrin combined with Vitamin E and Zinc to help lessen acne and give clear skin in as early as 2 weeks when taken 2x daily.
Lactoferrin is a protein found naturally in milk from humans and cows that possesses antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activities. A study was conducted that it can treat mild to moderate acne vulgaris that may lead to an overall improvement in acne lesion counts in the majority of affected adolescents and young adults when administered as a dietary supplement on a twice-daily regimen.
How to Take Lactezin?
It is recommended that you take Lactezin twice a day, one in the morning and one in the evening, with around 8-12 hours apart, or as recommended by your doctor.
Personally, I take it before my meal in the morning while in the evening, I take it before I go to sleep with my favorite chamomile tea. It doesn’t really matter if you take it with an empty stomach or not. Lactoferrin is considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the US FDA. And if you’re lactose-intolerant, you don’t have to worry. It contains only very small amounts of other milk proteins so it will not cause symptoms associated with lactose intolerance.
The first thing we think about before taking any oral treatments is the side effects. I’m lactose-intolerant and my stomach is fine with Lactezin. Though I do notice that there’s a sudden surge of tiny white pimples appeared on my face while some got redder and bigger.
If that happens to you, don’t be alarmed. It was mentioned on their website that it’s normal to see a surge of pimples for around 1-2 weeks after taking Lactezin. That effect reminds me of purging. If you watch a lot of Skincare Vlogs, then you’re already familiar with that term. It refers to a reaction to an active ingredient that is increasing skin cell turnover rate resulting in fresh skin cells underneath and reveal clearer skin.
Besides that, the only other problem I encounter so far is remembering that I have to take another one at night. But surely, I’ll get used to it eventually.
I’m still in the first stage of the process. But I’ll update this post in 2 weeks to show you the progress.
