                    • Q:

                      I have mildly sensitive, drier skin, with hormonal acne that is mostly constant on my cheeks. I bought this and it was wonderful in that it didn't dry me out, and it brightened my complexion and helped with my dark spots, scars, and uneven skin tone. But after a few weeks my acne got worse and worse mostly on my cheeks and jawline, and I'm now realizing this toner especially probably isn't helping my pores. I've had the same pores re-clog week after week, pimples in the same spots, even with using the Drying Lotion (and now the Anti Acne Serum). I don't know if the Acne line will be too harsh for me, but what do you recommend for wash, toner, and moisturizer?

                        We recommend bringing the product or list of ingredients to your doctor for approval before using any skin care products while pregnant. We suggest this because recommended products or ingredients can vary slightly from doctor to doctor and only your physician knows your medical history.

                        Yes, the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is an exfoliant that is not suitable for daily use. We suggest this product 1-2 times per week if dry or 2-3 times per week if oily. For daily cleansing our Enzyme Cleansing Gel pairs wonderfully with this kit.
