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.

Good luck with your regimen. Retinoids are not an easy road but you seem to be doing really well. I have been on Ziana and had a so-so experience but may people report positive findings. Also, acanya should help tremendously.

Thanks, yes my skin has greatly improved. However, these pictures are from a bad breakout..usually my skin isn't that bad but idk how it happened.
