I have suffered from acne all of my life. I've tried every drug, surgery, peel, spa treatment and while some provided some relief, nothing worked for very long. Acanya is amazing. I've been using it for almost a year. After I wash my face (twice a day) I apply it all over my face and follow up with a mositurizer. No more face covered in zits!.
