Update

So, the ziana gel was pretty good. I had to stop the Acanya, it started to dry my skin badly causing ugly black spots. I recently have stopped the Ziana like 3 days ago. Ziana will keep me from getting pimples, however, it has started to cause my skin to have a bumpy texture instead of smooth. I've started using QUEEN HELENE MINT JULEP and it is great. It smoothed my skin and I haven't had any new breakouts. I use overnight or for a few hours in the morning. I see some change. I have been using it for about 4 days now. I will review again in a few weeks. It healed my sisters acne a long time ago and she has nice skin with random breakouts like once a month. So far so good with the mask tho. I believe that eating healthy, lots of water, moderate activity, and keeping hands off face helps clear the skin from my journey so far.

Decreasing Use

Im decreasing my use to Ziana every other night, very very very small amount. Acanya every morning very very small amount. I have great results so I believe it may be wise to reduce use just because I want 2 avoid damaging my skin or my skin becoming unresponsive. Overall I havent had a breakout in idk how long.

Ziana With Acanya Added

I have very carefully watched my skin. No new breakouts. Havent broken out during my monthly in a while! Skin is neutral. Im still waiting for my blemishes to leave. I have been on Ziana for over 2 months & its been working since the first time i applied it. I hv maintained not wearing makeup because i feel as tho it may jus clog my pores. So far so good. I apply ziana every nite & acanya every morning. Pea sized amount. Moisturizer before i leave home.

Update

It has been about 9 weeks since starting Ziana and about 3 weeks since starting Acanya. Skin is pretty much neutral. I believe My dark spots are still slowly reducing. Breakouts are pretty much slim to none. I may hv a white head when I wake up but it's gone that day. Honestly, I have probably had about 2 white heads in the last 2 or 3 weeks. I haven't noticed anything. Patiently waiting on fully clear skin but my skin is definitely good now. Attached photo is now. Can't really see my blemishes, they exist, but the resolution on the camera isn't showing clear pic. Either way, my skin is much better so for now things are just neutral.

Ziana With Acanya Added

I have started using Acanya in the mornings and Ziana at night. The Acanya tingles a bit after drying. Makes the skin a bit dry. Be careful not to put on too much, I use a very small amount, less than pea size. I add moisturizer about 20 to 30 mins after applying the Acanya. I now can wear my skin comfortably without makeup. Its not perfect but it looks smoother since using Acanya and it looks very healthy. No new breakouts in the last week.

Ziana Gel

My progress on Ziana Gel. Ive attached pictures to show how my skin looks after every week or so. I started Ziana December 1 2014, I experienced burning sensation sometimes due to using too much of the product. Not too much peeling, but I have oily skin. I didn't experience dryness, again due to oily skin..I believe. Ziana started working for me instantly. Reduced breakouts and helped breakouts heal faster, also helped dark spots shrink at a decent pace. Since using Ziana, I dont have those horrific break outs during that time of the month. I haven't used any cleanser..Ive exfoliated every now and then with Biore detoxify daily scrub (currently discontinued ). I believe this product is great. I just added acanya to my regimen, I'll be using acanya in the morning and Ziana at night. I will post photos of this as well to show my progress. Background info- I'm 26 black female, and have had acne since about 18. I had a really bad breakout November 2014 that drove me to the Dermatologist. I believe my acne may be hormonal. I take supplements-zinc, fish oil, gla primose evening oil, and centrum multivitamins.. I believe that these supplements are really good...especially the fish oil and centrum multivitamins (for women). I have been on centrum and fish oil before the ziana and it really helped control my acne, I just know this from experimenting. I believe that birth control plays a role in acne, I used Nuva Ring for 6 years and I believe this contributed to break outs around that time of the month. I'm posting here in hopes of helping someone overcome the dreadful acne that I have endured and am still dealing with. I have cleared my skin before with Duac, a gel prescribed by my dermatologist about 4 years ago...this is essentially the same as Acanya,,, which is why I'm adding Acanya to my Regimen.
