So hello to my skin!
So I realized that I haven’t posted about my skin!!! So vital to share my skin concerns so that I can see progress in my skin journey. So the first picture is just my skin on a normal morning. (Yes, I was having a bad hair day and was feeling pretty tired if you can’t tell 🙃 haha) The second picture is where I scored the worse, saying I had larger-than-average pores 😳 Yikes! I’ve struggled with this for as long as I can remember. I had super oily skin in high school and never really washed my face, maybe occasionally with some Nutrogena acne wash or with some Proactive or something. I should also probably mention I had baaaddd acne. So bad I almost went on medication for it until my mom decided against it. My acne didn’t go away until I was around 23. Which leads me to the next picture.... Next lowest score was dark spots which is no doubt due to the severe acne I had in high school and years of no sunscreen. I also know for sure I have acne scars and hyperpigmentation from occasional acne I get. Goals would of course be get them pores smaller and keep ‘em clean!! Diminish dark spots, scars, and hyperpigmentation. Also, improve brightness! 🌞 Please comment questions, suggestions, and commentary. I’d love to hear from you. Thanks! 💜🌻☺️
Snail 🐌 secretion?
I am a lover of Korean skincare products but this did not sit well with my skin. My skin became irritated with small maculopapular bumps on my face, mostly the cheeks. The picture on the right, my cheek still have a little more healing to go and the other side has healed after I stopped using it roughly a week ago. Benefit: price was affordable and did not burn a hole in my pocket Put on a pair of hot shades and go about your day. Let your skin heal and don’t cover it! 😎 If you want to know more about me, my info is below! 😊 - - - IG:Soapy_LLC Profession: Just being me Focus: healthy skin = beautiful skin Website: https://SoapyLLC.US
1 Week Microdermabrasion Progress! 🌟
Sometimes no matter how GREAT our skincare routine is, we need extra help. At least every three months, I try to schedule a professional procedure to help my skin. Last week, I went for a facial followed up by microdermabrasion because my skin has been acting up, and there’s a lot of sebum building up creating blackheads and inflammatory bumps. What’s microdermabrasion? In professional microdermabrasion, tiny crystals help remove the outer layer of the skin. There’s no need for numbing medicine since the procedure is less aggressive. Think about it as an intense exfoliation that leaves skin softer and brighter. Who should get microdermabrasion? Because the treatment is fully customizable, it can be adjusted to treat all skin types. People looking to improve the following conditions should consider microdermabrasion: Wrinkles. Fine facial lines. Sun damage. Skin discoloration. Acne scarring. Sunspots. Stretch marks. Blackheads. How long does microdermabrasion results last? You’ll be able to experience some results immediately. For example, brightness and texture improve instantly. But these results are only temporary. Your skin will go back to normal after a few days. It takes your skin 30 days to self-regenerate. In the first week after your treatment, you’ll see fewer breakouts, improved texture, and brightness. But, to truly see the benefits of microdermabrasion, you need at least 3-6 sessions in the course of the next six months. Usually, these treatments are scheduled a month in between. Anything I should do after my treatment? YES! Avoid using any harsh chemicals on the day of your treatment. You should apply sunscreen the following days as well because your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight. Try not to exfoliate or do any peels at least two weeks after your treatment.
DARK SPOTS: a journey
Recently joined this community of fellow skincare obsessed folks!! I’ve gained so much from reviewing the forums and want to add to the convo. Here’s my first “progress” post and with SO many selfies 🤦🏾♀️, I can give a good picture of how my skin ebbs and flows. When I started my skin care journey, I was focused on feeling good in my skin and that meant clearing my acne to be more comfortable make up free. I was able to get to a place where my acne was under control but that led to major dark spots from those former pimples. My focus for quite some time now had been on my dark spots. I got to a really great place last summer when I was hyper focused on my routine but then with vacations, stress and an planning a major life change set me back a bit! I started seeing a dermatologist and curbed my blemishes but my skin was left again with dark spots and VERY sensitive. Bottom picture I’m happy with my dark spots progress but am now shifting my main focus to my skin texture. Would love to get back to my glow from last summer but it’s a journey which means it’s a very winding road. Can’t provide helpful routine info as I have changed it many times in the timeline of these photos but I focus on products with glycolic acid, vitamin C, hyluaronic acid and DAILY DAILY S👏🏾P 👏🏾F! xoxo, g
