Most scars overtime though do improve, the body usually does a good job at healing itself. ...Read more

If the skin is still dry and your acne meds are working well for you, try an oil-free non-comedogenic facial lotion. ...Read more

Lotions are even lighter. ...Read more

Retino AC gel vs ziana? What is the difference between the two? Is one generic and original is there any difference in quality or effectiveness?
Acne Vulgaris: The difference is that ziana contains tretinoin and clindamycin. Retin-a gel is brand name for tretinoin only and has no antibiotic Clindamycin in it.

Gel more potent: Prices are arbitrary, not based on actual cost of production, but determined but what the market will bear. Shop around.

It is better than tretinoin. Price not yet known but likely to be reasonable. ...Read more
