dang it's been an exciting interesting last few weeks! my eating habits and skin are certainly starting to show it. isn't it crazy how easy it can be to slip out of a good habit? or is it just me? lol one i have struggled with recently is keeping up with my skin as much as i once did, sometime this fall/winter i got way out of my nightly routines and would end up falling asleep with my make up on more often then not. between that, roller coaster of hormones and stress my skin has been a mess. i have started to try Differin® Gel, it is the first and only prescription strength retinoid now availed over the counter. i picked mine up at @Target! just a thin layer all over my face once a day, every day and my face has already shown a difference. It's the newest advancement and ingredient in the OTC (over-the-counter) acne category in over 30 years! Clears breakouts where they start (deep in the pores), prevents breakouts before they begin, and as a result, restores skin’s texture and tone. Please use caution when using Differin® Gel with more than one acne treatment or glycolic acid product because this could lead to irritation.
