A Skin Care Regimen Worth Trying

I’m no skincare expert, so please take my suggestions with a grain-of-salt. All I can say about these products is that they work for me. You might discover that they don’t work for you. 

My issues: About six months ago I started getting really bad breakouts. I just couldn’t contain them. Why my face decided to start hating me after 29 years of pretty decent luck is beyond me. All I knew was something had to be done.  My dermatologist prescribed me Ziana, which dried my skin out and made the breakout worse. I stopped using it right away, and traded “Doctor recommended” for good ‘ole fashioned word-of-mouth, and peeping around online, to find products that are good for all skin types. So far, I’m happy with the results:
