The pictures posted below were taken Tuesday June 24 in the morning after cleansing my face. I have noticed a reduction in size of large pimples that were on my forehead, cheeks and chin. I have not noticed any difference in the blackheads on my nose or chin. The finacea gel and ziana gel have not made my skin dry--I apply the cerave moisturizing cream a few minutues after I apply either treatment to my face. My skin is still oily, but with the right makeup products I can help to control how shiny my face appears throughout the day. I am contiuting to break out, but I believe that it is because of the purging process.
