My Skin Care Saga: The Journey To Clear Skin

I’ve never been the girl with perfect skin. Well, let’s be real here, not even close. Similar to most, it started in my teens when puberty arrived but it hasn’t stopped since. Zits, bumps, and full blown acne have been my foes for many years now. No, it’s not a constant battle, I have had periods of time where my skin is fairly clear and my heart is rejoicing, but these are few and far between.

But before we get there we’ve got to get through some wacky and unpredictable weather, because that’s spring in Toronto after all. With inconsistent temperatures and changing seasons come some skin challenges.
