Dark spots and acne scars
my holy grail product for red and dark spots
You may have seen me rave about the Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel before, but that’s because they do things to my skin that I didn’t know were possible. These pictures are 9 days apart, and in between when they were taken, I used these peeling pads for three consecutive days. Only three days! These are pricey, so I’m only using them now because as you can see, I’m healing from a pretty bad breakout that left me with a lot of post-acne marks. I’m really hoping the meds I just started taking will prevent breakouts like this in the future, but in the meantime, these will always be the product I turn to for rapid improvement in acne and pigmentation.

Product Review - The Ordinary AHA + BHA Mask
The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution My Take - Yes I know. Maybe the most hyped / reviewed mask out there right now. Gotta throw my 2 cents in! As with majority of posts I see - this mask is amazing. Changed my entire exfoliation game, which in turn changed my makeup game. I’d never messed with chemical exfoliation but this babe makes it possible for anyone to try. It has a two-fold effect - immediate removal of dead skin, then long term fading of scarring. Details below! Usage - - use on dry skin - use no more than once a week - apply evenly to the face, ideally in PM - I use about 5-6 drops - let sit for no more than 10 minutes before rinsing Expect to see - - immediately after rinsing off, see removal of dead skin cells and dry skin flakes leaving glowy, smooth skin - after about 1 month of consistent weekly use, you’ll see fading of dark spots or acne scars, leaving an even skin tone Notes - - my first usage, I went for 7 minutes because this is strong stuff! I worked up from there to 10 minutes - don’t use for more than 10 minutes or more than once a week. These acids can cause damage to skin if used incorrectly - don’t be afraid - go for chemical exfoliant ! When you go apply your face makeup afterward, you’ll be stunned ☀️ Comment with thoughts or questions ! 🌾

💙My Solution to Acne Scars and Dark Spots💙
Neutrogena - Rapid Tone Repair Dark Spot Corrector The Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Dark Spot Corrector claims to make your dark spots dissapear and brighten skin in just 1-2 weeks. It is formulated with accelerated Retinol SA and a high concentration of Vitamin C. I use this daily at night after I have washed my face. I use a tiny amount to cover just my acne scars and dark spots and I massage it until it fully absorbs. I bought this knowing that retinol helps with acne scarring. I have multiple scars on the side of my face from stress picking at my acne when I was in highschool. THESE SCARS ARE 5 YEARS OLD AND HAVE NEVER DISSAPEARED and this product WORKS! I was hesitant to say this the first 2 weeks of using it because I saw a slight improvement but not enough to truly know it was working. After a month of using it every single night I can say that the dark spots and scars have almost dissapeared. My skin is brighter, smoother and the scarring has definitely improved. The question is: Why is no one talking about this product? I think this spot treatment deserves more attention because its so effective and it doesn't have any negative effects. I will continue to use this because this makes my newer acne scars heal faster and dissapear faster as well. 💙Do I recommend this product? Yes 💙Will I repurchase? Of course!

Acne scars and dark spots are disappearing
I’ve had acne breakouts constantly since I was 13 and have scars and dark spots. I’ve tried so many acne products but the Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment has worked wonders on my skin. I’ve used it every night after my normal skin care routine and leave it on overnight and wash it off in the morning. The results have been stunning! I’ve never seen anything work so fast and be so effective. It can dry your skin out a little but I have pretty oily skin to begin with so I haven’t had any issues with it. I’ve used this product for about a week but already has very promising results! Can’t wait to see the long term effects! So far I’m absolutely in love with this product!!

2 Weeks After My 1st VI Peel!! 🧖♀️
If you saw my post on 07/06, I explained what a VI peel does! This is my results after almost 2 weeks! The pictures show before, during, and after the peel on my left cheek, which is where my skin is most problematic! During the peel, my skin burned! I guess that’s to be expected, but it felt really tight and uncomfortable. I constantly wore sunscreen and made sure not to pick at my peeling skin. The peeling started around my 3rd or 4th day, and lasted about another 4 days. My skin is still dry and a little peeling is left, but there’s no more uncomfortable tight feeling. After examining my skin during my initial consultation, the nurse told me I’d need at least 2 sets of peels (a month apart) for me to see results. I can definitely tell I still need at least 1 more peel, but so far I am satisfied with the results! This morning I woke up with a new pimple on my left cheek (probably from my new puppy constantly licking my face) but I initially noticed the peel cleared any remaining acne I had left! My redness from old acne spots has rescued quite a bit! Overall, I’d definitely recommend the VI peel if you struggle with acne or acne scars! Just beware that the cost of the peels DO add up!! And you have to be careful when in the sun so as not to burn your sensitive post peel skin!
