For years I struggled with my skin. I had peri-oral dermatitis around my mouth and chin as well as tiny skin coloured bumps all over my face and chest. It was almost like sandpaper. I tried many acne treatments and moisturizers and cleansers and wasted a lot of time and money in doing so.
My doctor told me it was hereditary and there was nothing that could be done. My dermatologist gave me antibiotics for the dermatitis and once I was finished the course of medicine it would return.
One thing I noticed is that when I lived in Australia the sun and salt seemed to improve my condition. After spending three months there a year ago and seeing it improve, it came back within three weeks of my return to North America.
I had been visiting my brother in San Diego at that time and he had purchased a product for my stepmom that turned out to be the wrong item and non-refundable. It was a product made by MD Forte and it contained glycolic acid. I started using it on my face as a toner and within four days the bumps were gone and so was my peri-oral dermatitis!
Unfortunately MD Forte discontinued the item and I began to panic. After a visit to Sephora, however, I learned that Peter Thomas Roth had a product similar to the product I was using by MD Forte. I purchased it and saw my skin continue to improve. On the odd occasion that I have missed putting the product on at night I have seen the redness and bumps return within days.
I 100% recommend this product for anyone who is experiencing skin problems similar to mine. It can be purchased at your local Sephora.
