Best birth control for Acne?

My complexion is semi-decent. But when I get on birth control acne just flares up!! It's horrible. It's even worse when Im on my period. I've tried Yaz, Ortho Tricyclen, Ortho Tricyclen low, Nuva ring, Ortho Patch, and the mini pill. Same story with all of them. Does anyone know of a birth control (Anything!!) that might help with my acne??

  • Here is how my teen handles her acne: wash your face twice a day with a very mild soap (like unscented baby soap) and a soft wash cloth; follow with a light, oil free moisturizer (she uses Lush). Once a day, before you wash your face, put on a honey mask (just honey, a great anti-bacterial). Every three days add a pinch of baking soda to the honey to exfoliate. Check back with me in two weeks and tell me how this worked.
