Can birth control pills be used to control acne

Naweko San-Joyz asks if birth control pills can be used to control acne, and concludes “Even though studies reveal that birth control pills do combat acne, contraceptives are not ideal for all women with acne. For example, most studies only tested the drugs on women with mild to moderate acne. Women who experience moderate to severe acne should explore acne control options beyond birth control pills- such as antibiotics, topical retinoids, tretinoin or systemic treatments- in order to attain clear skin.”
