I am very into skin care. I love trying new products. I am always reading up on the latest skin care tips, talking with my friends about their skin care routine, like a total skin care maniac! I have always had really great skin as far as no breakouts! I also never really went through that whole pizza face teenage meltdown THANK THE MAN ABOVE and my parents for passing down those super lit skin genes! However as I get a tad bit younger but my age increases (see what I did there) I find it very important to start doing preventive options so hopefully I won’t run into the issues of ageing skin ! Also treating things I never noticed until now when I’m all about my skin health! Everyone is always asking me what I use on my skin, what is my routine and for so long I didn’t have a serious one besides fresh hot water and my hands! However I do now! My biggest issue I have worked is sun damage and dark spots from UV rays and just life in general.
Most of us brown babies don’t know and our parents didn’t teach us about the importance of sunscreen and SPF. I know for a fact my parents never mentioned anything about it all! You usually get most of your sun damage by the time you are 17 years old! This is why a lot of us have discolorations and so many different shades on our face alone, like for me the sides of my face where darker than my front. Or my forehead was darker than the lower portion of my face. Think about the side of your face gets more sun exposure and if you are not wearing SPF you more than likely have darker shades in those areas!
So once I noticed how much sun damage I had I starting looking for the best products to even out my skin tone and brighten my complexion. Not to be confused with bleaching your skin at all. Brightening products and serums help you uncover your natural glow and enhances what you already working with! Its never to to late to take charge of your skin care! I will be sharing my favorite skin care products weekly and also giving product reviews. Today lets focus on evening out your skin tone and brightening your complexion. These are a few of my top picks baby!
This is one of my absolutely favorite products! This oil is absolutely heaven sent. Not only does it brighten and even out your skin tone. Its also so hydrating and makes your skin so soft and smooth. I usually use this product after I use my toner at night! I tend to stay away from this in the day time because it is so oily! This is one product you want to surely wear over night and let it soak into your pores. It can be used in the day time also but try to use a smaller amount in the day time cause of the oiliness! This really helped with dark marks and small blemished some things it made vanish and some things made them so faint it was unbelievable!
Perricone MD is the absolute bomb! It comes in super small bottle but is very potent and gets right down to business! This product is amazing for my issues with the darker areas I had from sun damage on the sides of my face. This product helped my skin so much by almost making my sun damage totally disappear! I feel like I have brand new skin that came from using this product! I use this after I tone in the morning and at night some time. I layer this with my oil! Its really good to let all your products soak in for like 25-30 minutes in between, but lets be clear, I don’t have 2 hours to let these products soak in so I give them about 5 minutes in between!
This is one of my favorite products to use! Glamglow has a great line of products in general. This one smells so good and it gives you a super yummy glow when you use it. I usually use this twice a week after I exfoliate. I feel like its best to use it after exfoliating because you have got rid of all those dead skin cells and have this whole new fresh layer of skin and the mask just really gets to do its magic!
The Clarisonic is a must have! I was a skeptical about how this truly worked and went years not getting my full face life without this! If you want to see change in your skin and you want to actually see result from your products this is what is going to make the total difference! It truly gets your face super clean! It makes it feel totally different, so soft, and clean, I usually change my brush on this about every month or so and you can also clean the cleansing brush in between replacements! Your going to get and totally know you have been washing your face and neck wrong for years!
