It's time for me to finally come clean.

For the past 26 years of my life, I've been a long-time sufferer of mild acne primarily caused by the mismanagement of my combination-oily skin. Yes, that's right, I have acne prone skin. You may have already detected that based on close-up pictures of my face, where you can see visible scars and blemishes left behind by my incessant picking habit.

As seen here:

Having seen multiple informercials about skincare products that work like miracles on screen, I was a bit skeptical about


at first. It took me a while to warm up to the idea of embarking on a new regimen only to be disappointed in the end, but

I finally buckled down when I learned that Clearogen directly targets DHT

(dihydrotestosterone) - a hormone that is often the primary cause of acne, cystic acne and minor cases of acne - like mine - due to unregulated oil production on the skin.

But unlike the miracles you see on TV, Clearogen is more akin to an evolution. A journey that really allows you to learn that skincare management is a commitment and something you do everyday to get to a better state of healthy skin. In other words, it worked after being on the regimen for a month.

The routine is so easy to follow that I can summarize it in one sentence:

Two times a day, starting with a pump of the foaming cleanser, then finish it off with the refreshing toner and oil-free moisturizer. Clearogen is a 3-step program that works and works for your busy schedule.

As we move closer into the Fall and Winter months, I am eager to share this program with all of you - which is why I've partnered up with Advanced Skin and Hair to give away a two-month supply of Clearogen to one lucky reader!
