My skin (my combination, sensitive, prone to break-out skin) has always vexed me.
At this point in my life I've basically beat it into submission - thanks to a combination of $$, trial and error, and Sephora.
Although - it still acts out. The hubby likes to tease me b/c contact with nature, foreign skincare products, and unfamiliar detergents will immediatly make rosy rashes appear on my cheeks and hormonal surges always lead to little unwanted appearances (urgh!).
I should also mention that I've been obsessed w/anti-aging products since my early 20's. I hope my preemptive strike pays off in the long-run.
