Genetics! You just gotta do the best with what you have right…

For as long as I can remember I have encountered an assortment of skin problems and issues. As a teenager and throughout my 20’s my skin was nothing but trouble. I had horrible acne and I was put on all sorts of lotions, potions and medications, the contraceptive pill and eventually Roaccutane. Oh the glamour of my teen years!
