You know the saying about how a summer body is made in the winter, well I like to think the same thing can be said about our skin.
When it’s cold, we can cover up our bodies with layers to conceal areas that we’re working on and when the weather finally warms up, flash everyone that hard work by wearing less clothes. We can apply that same principle to other vanity areas such as out skin. Just replace clothes with make-up and body with face. No matter you skin dilemma, you can easily work on it winter so in the summer, you can let your natural skin glow with little to no make-up.
When it comes to my skin, I feel like I’ve dealt with every issue possible; including acne, large pores, and even a phase when I was getting dry patches all over my face. Not cute. Recently, I decided it was time for me to work on the discoloration and acne scarring on my face.
Fortunately, after years of having very problematic skin, my skin has finally cleared up with the exception of a pimple here or there. Those minor pimples are nothing compared to my puberty that included skin full of large pores, oily skin, and pimples on pimples. It was horrid.
Now that I’ve found the right regimen, know which products/ingredients work for my skincare and proper nutrition, my skin has been having the smoothest time of it’s life.
To help with the discoloration and scarring, I’ve incorporated some new products and lifestyle changes into my life that have been working wonders and wanted to share them with you…of course!
PRODUCTS FOR SPOTLESS SKIN
Microdermabrasion was one of the first things I tried to help with my complexion and it really has made a difference. It helped smooth my skin and some scarring. I use my at-home microdermabrasion system once a week, which has helped.
The other new incorporation into my skincare game to help me get rid of dark spots is finding the right products with the right ingredients. I recently started using Murad’s 90-Day Rapid Lightening regimen, which has done wonders to clearing past acne scars and hyperpigmentation on my cheek area. I noticed changes within a 2 weeks of consistent use. The line is packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants, which are all great battling sun spots and damage.
My personal favorite product from the line is the Rapid Age Pigment Lightening Serum. It’s beast and on par to be the only serum I used for years. I already bought 2 more. I will admit that I was most excited to try this serum out of the line, because some of my favorite and flawless skin femmes of Instagram swear by this serum. After using it for myself, they did not steer me wrong.
My initial (and only) goal to using this line was to help brighten my complexion by lightening scars that are reminders of previous years of acne, but now I feel like I’ve found my summertime skin’s new BFF.
