Giving Ziana A Try
By Paige Herman-Axel |
We first told you about the new acne prescription Ziana about a month ago. As soon as I learned about it, I knew its anti-acne and anti-aging benefits are exactly what I'm looking for. As a refresher, this prescription topical contains tretinoin (the active ingredient in Retin-A) plus the antibiotic clindamycin. I tried topical clindamycin back in my teens to no avail, but I saw my dermatologist last week and asked him what he thought of Ziana. He told me that they just got samples of it last week and that he was thinking of trying it himself. He gave me some samples and I've been using it for five days. It's a clear, yellow gel-liquid that goes on easily and absorbs quickly. And unlike Retin-A cream (I've tried that too), it doesn't leave any white residue. I know I need to give it a month or two to see results, but so far it's going great. I'm not seeing any irritation, but my skin is starting to flake just a little bit. Stay tuned for updates!
