melanie's Blog > Haven't Posted In A Long Time, Giving An Update

Posted 01 April 2015

I haven't posted in a long while, mainly because my skin hasn't really been an issue. Took a lot of time of trial and error to figure out what works for my skin. I still don't have perfectly clear skin, I probably never will, but I'm okay with that.
