Brighten dark spots💫OVERNIGHT💫
Brighten dark spots💫OVERNIGHT💫
I'm sure like most of you, there are very few products that make a real difference for me overnight, and have earned high status in my skincare repertoire as repurchases and "holy grail" items. This Vitamin C, has. 🤍 Literally overnight I see a significant reduction in dark spots. After 5 days, my skin is smoother, more even, and has a glow. 🤍 Some important things to know about this product: it's quite strong. Like all products please patch test on yourself and start out slow. I love mixing this with my collagen serum to dilute it a bit. If you are new to acids, I would not use this on night when you are using a strong acid exfoliator if your skin is not used to strong products. If you're an avid acid user, I still would not double up this with an acid more than 1x/week. it will sting if you have any breakouts or open wounds. Sometimes this even stings a bit when I use it after an exfoliating mask. Again, start slow. This is not a daytime Vitamin C. The texture is oily and a bit gritty. I don't mind this at all at night but don't recommend this during the day. How I apply: Cleanse➡️toner or essence➡️Vit C + collagen serum➡️[wait 5+ minutes to let it absorb bc like I said it's a bit oily]➡️ night cream or oil. I've been using this in my routine for years now and I highly, highly recommend. For me, it's perfect to use every few weeks or so, whenever I've had some breakouts or spots that need fading, or before a big event to really improve my skin's tone. The best part, it's so affordable and lasts so long. If you're going to pick up this product and take anything away from this long post, start slow and dilute with a night cream or serum to help your skin acclimate and reduce any stinging. 💕 The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%

This is great for dark spots and acne scars!
This is great for dark spots and acne scars!
I’ve always liked The ordinary! This product is one of the popular ones for a reason. For the two best ingredients in this product is of course Niacinamide. This skincare ingredient is very good for many things like calming your skin and also know for brightening skin! And It also has Zinc in this product which you can already tell by the name of this product. Zinc helps with dark spots and acne scars. But there is a catch some people’s skin just don’t like this product and have bad reactions. And even if your skin doesn’t like this product you won’t waste a lot of money it’s very non-expensive. I personally won’t repurchase because my skin personally didn’t like this product. But don’t let that discourage you this is a amazing product. 🌫 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% it’s also Good for people with Oily, Combination, And also Normal skin type

Best face sunscreen to prevent dark spots under $20
Best face sunscreen to prevent dark spots under $20
Each summer, I get an incredible amount of pigmentation spots, considering the fact that I very rarely go to the beach or spend time outside. But it looks like my skin is determined to get a tan and also lots of dark spots at the same time. Until now, I’ve always used a moisturizer with 15-20 SPF, but this year, I decided to take things to the next level and use a face sunscreen cream every day. I couldn’t decide what I’d like to try first, so I ordered both NUXE Sun Melting Cream High Protection for Face SPF 50 and Mineral UV Filters SPF 30 with Antioxidants. NUXE is a bit more expensive compared to The Ordinary, but still a budget-friendly brand.  I’ve been using both products for over two weeks now, and I kinda love them both. Here is why:   NUXE Sun Melting Cream High Protection for Face SPF 50 The texture is heavenly, like royal jelly; it is an absolute pleasure to apply it. It spreads evenly, doesn’t leave a greasy or chalky film behind, and it smells divine too. Unlike most SPF 50 creams, this one has a more lightweight texture, melting as the name suggests. My skin feels hydrated immediately after application, and this is a big deal considering the fact it is an SPF 50 after all. I use this one in the mornings, instead of my regular moisturizer during weekends or when I plan to wear light or no makeup.    The Ordinary Mineral UV Filters SPF 30 with Antioxidants  The Ordinary - Mineral UV Filters SPF 30 with Antioxidants This sunscreen from The Ordinary was a bit of a shock to apply. It is darker in color compared to NUXE, and the texture completely different. This sunscreen is like a thick paste, not as easy to apply as NUXE. However, this is normal for mineral filters’ sunscreen. Once applied, I noticed that I instantly looked like Snow White! I don’t mean just a brighter, whiter complexion, but also very even in terms of texture and color of the skin. So, if you are struggling with uneven skin, this is definitely a must-have. The skin feels a bit dry after application, but for somebody with combination skin like me, this is just an added benefit. And what I’ve noticed is that you don’t need foundation or concealer if you are wearing this. So, this is the sunscreen cream I’m applying in the mornings when I want to wear more makeup, I have formal meetings, or I just want to have the perfect complexion.

Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid: worth it?
Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid: worth it?
Today I want to compare two exfoliating toners: The Ordinary’s 7% glycolic acid toner, and Paula’s Choice 2% BHA liquid. I’ve used both of these toners in the past. The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution This was my first ever acid toner, and one of my first acids. As with most of The Ordinary’s products, I think you get a lot of bang for your buck—7% of glycolic acid is a solid percentage, and at $8.70 for 8oz, it can’t get much cheaper. I’ve used this off and on for years, and I know I can always turn to it if I need some no-nonsense exfoliation. I haven’t been using it as much lately because I use tretinoin, so I’m trying to lay off the heavier-duty exfoliants, but I’ve even used it on the bumpy areas of my arms and it’s helped to smooth them. This toner does sting a little bit (not in a burning way—it just feels spicy on my skin), but it’s never been so uncomfortable for me that I’ve wanted to stop using it. I think it helps other products penetrate and absorb better because it removes any dead skin cells that are in the way. Long story short, if you’re new to acids, this is a great place to start: the formula is simple, the percentage is solid, and the price is unbeatable. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator This toner contains 2% salicylic acid as the main ingredient, and green tea extract to soothe. I’ll be honest: I don’t love the way this toner feels when I apply it. It feels... oily? Greasy? I definitely was not expecting that consistently when I first applied it, and I’ve never quite gotten used to it. However, I love the way my skin reacts to this: while it’s never stung or prickled the way that The Ordinary’s toner has, I get smooth and glowy skin every time I use this. I think The Ordinary’s toner might be better for hardcore fading of dark spots, and this one is better for getting rid of texture and closed comedones. In the end, these are both good products. I think the Paula’s Choice is worth $29.50 for 4oz because it does what it claims to do, but The Ordinary’s formula is also very effective (and at a great price point). I would start with The Ordinary’s if you’re new to acids (make sure to wear sunscreen!) and while the Paula’s Choice has a different active ingredient, it’s also very effective and still at a reasonable price point.

$5.9 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% This is a water base serum which you can use in the morning as well as evening and also on a daily base. It is designed to be the great solution for oiliness and pores. I got this recommendation from my bff who has been suffering from acnes and dark spots for years. I can actually see her skin condition is getting better in the past two years. She is a big fan of ingredients after came to Canada. Honestly I have never heard of this brand before and hesitated of trying because of the pricing. After reading a lot of reviews online and visually see the changes on her I decided to give it a try. I first tried it 1 year ago when I had just suffered from 2 year terrible acne outbreak. One thing I really love about this brand is that it is vegan and cruelty-free. The ingredients are very pure with no alcohol silicone or fragrances. At first, I didn't use it very often. I started to use it more often when I ran out of my lancome night serum. After using the whole bottle, my skin was cleared. I still have a few acnes cus i know its more about my routine and lifestyle. But from the outside, my skin does get brighter. I’m really happy with the result at this point. Definitely recomand. The steps I’ve using in my skincare routine is that I would do a deep cleaning first. After that I would use a toner. Then go with this Niacinamide and then use a moisturizer on top. If you are a dry combination like me who love to play around with makeup and mostly wear makeup on a daily basis, make sure you do moisturize you skin along with this serum before putting makeup on. Another thing I want to point out is that if you have the same skin type like me, be aware that it can feel a bit drying. So I definitely recomand using eye cream especially under eye areas to prevent fine lines. All in all it is a great product and helps a lot with my acne. Beauty lovers should be clear about their skin type and how to use this product before making the purchase.
