Vicki's Favorite OC Moments

You may not know that Vicki Gunvalson has ever faced down any complexion problems. But, The Real Housewives of Orange County OG recently shared a skincare concern that she and her family have had to grapple with — and it's totally relatable. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Chatting with The Lookbook, the business-savvy beauty said: "I’ve got cystic acne as a hereditary skin issue." Needless to say, the ever-resourceful Vicki has found a solution that totally works for her. (Catch RHOC Mondays at 9/8c.)

"I’ve been using Zein Obagi [products] for about six years and [the acne is] all gone," she told us, referring to the line of goods from the dermatologist and skincare expert who focuses on skin health. "It’s what I do, I do the Zein Obagi line," she reiterated.   

Though there's no magic bullet for acne in general (if only!), whatever Vicki is doing certainly seems to work for her! So, we're seriously considering testing out a couple of the doctor's products for ourselves.

We'll be honest: These products don't exactly go for drugstore prices. But, the fact that they've been developed by a dermatologist hints that there's some major, blemish-busting science behind their formulations. And again, Vicki's complexion makes a pretty convincing case for the results the products can have if they're a match for your skin!
