I'm so happy for you and your results, thats great.

 

I don't have much active acne but have hyper-pigmentation that makes it look like its acne. Would you recommend the Pure Deming 40% Lactic Acid Peel. I did some research and it looks great

 

What was your experience with it?

Yeah apparently time is the cure all for pigmentation. It sucks though. Dealing with a pimple can be motivating because you see it start under the skin, get red, come to a head, then heal itself back to nothing. 

 

But with hyper pigmentation it just kinda stays there. No change. A very gradual process

well that is an improvement from active acne but still makes me crazy, we just want it gone

 

the bad thing about BP is that it isn't the best for red marks, so incorporating an AHA into the mix would be good now- Dan has one on this site for sale and I like the Alpha Hydrox enhanced lotion...so work one into your routine daily

 

stay out of the sun and also make sure you use sunscreen if you are out there....and work a peel into your routine lactic acid or glycolic weekly or every other week...

 

but good for you on getting to this point-  the marks will fade, just takes time but you can speed it along

I just got Dan's AHA in the mail and have started incorporating it into the regimen. I use it as a spot treatment on the red marks before I apply the BP. I'll also start mixing it with the moisturizer. What was your experience with it?

 

 

Hi Dylan!

I don't know if you have heard of coconut oil. But it is extremely good for the skin. I use it as my daily night cream. Unrefined, organic coconut oil has antibacterial, antiviral properties and oleic acid (good for the skin), vit E, K (helps erase scars, bruises, etc), and lauric acid to help fight infections. Just keep in mind that the skin is simply a reflection of what is going inside. Healthy skin depends on the health of your gut. Always avoid refined sugars, refined carbs, alcohol, sleep your 8 hours, drink lots of water, try to introduce fermented foods, which promote a healthy gut. Also, Cod liver oil, has lots of vit A, which are great for the skin and tons of vit D (to boost your immune system). Another vitamin I take to maintain healthy skin is Magnesium. (I usually take it before bed, because it relaxes your body and helps induce sleep.) You can find coconut oil at any store, Trader Joes, Sprouts, Whole foods, etc. It's better if you can get Unrefined Organic coconut oil, you just need a little bit, rub it between your hands and apply it on the skin. Your skin will absorb it through out the night. Hope this helps! smile.png

I know you're right. I've heard time and time again that toxins in the body are most times released through the skin. Unfortunately I'm a college senior on a budget and can't afford to buy all my own, special acne free food. I have to get whats cheap or whatever my parents send me. I have been trying to eat healthier as of late. A lot of fruit and as many vegetables as I can. I drink tons of water and green tea (loaded with vitamin C). Any other advice for a college kid on a budget?
