Shani - bad news, sister, from a fifty year old. The hormonal acne doesn't stop. It just doesn't. I don't know what to say, other than I'm sorry no one told us this.

That said, you were kind enough to publish in Atta Girl my nihilist take on skin care - and I implore you now to try this: do nothing. Not one thing to your skin. You are allowed face wipes and sunblock, and that's it. Report back to me in 60 days. I think it will be a revelation.
