Whether your a bride or guest that's planning for a wedding so plan for clear skin too. I'm working with Differin and Differin Gel containing .1% adapalene and is the first FDA approved prescription strength retinoid acne treatment available over the counter. It works differently than other acne treatments by normalizing skin cell turnover and targeting clogged pores and inflammation. This isn't a spa treatment, so this doesn't work overnight, start at-least three months before big plans. Apply a thin layers to the entire face once daily and then moisturizer. I love Differin Oil Control Moisturizer with SPF30 for daytime.
