My skin type/concerns: before we go ahead, I thought I would mention a few words about my skin type and issues that I have. My skin is dry, sensitive and dehydrated. Plus I am prone to texture and clogged pores (did I mention painful hormonal breakouts? well, count them in). I have used AHAs and BHAs in the past and they do work incredibly well for me: skin gets clearer, I don't get as dry/"patchy" and when the time comes - I don't ge
