In Topic: Dark Spots

20 November 2014 - 05:11 AM

    My skin is now clear, and the dark spots left behind by some of my acne is gone. It takes time for the skin to heal, but anything moisturizing should help. Make sure you are drinking enough water, because hydrated skin can regenerate quicker than thirsty skin. As for topics you could put on your skin, I would recommend Clinique's dark spot corrector, and Ponds cold cream.

   The dark spot corrector really does make a difference in the dark spots on your skin, but you have to make sure you are consistent with use. The ponds cold cream is just another added moisturizing face wash, but if you have a lotion you could use that as well. 


In Topic: Green Smoothies For Acne?

SociallyAwkward, eating veggies and fruits are good for you and if you prefer to drink them, do so! I have about 3-4 smoothies a week either in place of a meal or a smaller portion for a snack. In my green smoothie I pack in lots of kale (atleast 2 cups), 1/2 of an avocado (to make it creamy), a small kiwi, one pear and 1/2 of a green apple. 


In Topic: Nivea Men Sensitive Face Wash

The first formula looks like it has a few more ingredients: Hamamelis Virginiana Bark/Leaf extract, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil and a few others. Typically, the less chemicals the better, but you should try the "new" formula out and see how it works for you. 


In Topic: Skin Purging Or Breakout

Hey Blowmeout!

   I've never tried this product so I can't speak from experience. But, I think there is a way to get over "purging." If you introduce the product to your skin slowly, your skin will adjust and won't breakout. But if you start using the product for maximum effects in the beginning, your skin won't be used to it and will freak out. I think your skin is reacting to the amount of product you're using, and it could possibly be what is in it. Go a day without using the cream, and see what happens. If your skin calms down, then it is likely that you are allergic to the product and should not use it. If you're willing to try the product again after your skin calms down, go slowly and use it once a day, every other day, so that your skin has time to adjust. Good Luck!! (:


In Topic: What Is Causing My Breakout?

Thank you for your replies Alex and VeeHaru, my skin is doing much better than a week ago! I think it was mainly the Aveeno wash that broke me out, possibly the bad food too. (:
