Alisa Russo's mybest Summary

When it comes to acne management, it's important to invest in pH-balancing products as well as truly understand the underlying issues which can be diet-related as well as hormone-related. 

It was definitely quite a journey. Things that were life-changing for me and have helped me to get rid of acne are: proper exfoliation, a skincare routine which includes the skincare products mentioned above, a cleaner diet which includes more greens and fish products as well as understanding how much hormones work and staying away from dairy products.

I promise you that starting with the skincare products mentioned above will be an incredible start for you and your skin!
