Thankful

These photos are taken with my Mac PhotoBooth; hence, the quality isn’t the best.

However, these pictures still show the bumpiness off my skin due to inflamed acne. Here is my progress:

See what I mean? The lighting isn’t perfect but it still manages to capture the bumps/inflammation.

So in the last photo (which was taken like 5 minutes ago) my skin still has few whiteheads, not a lot. If anything, the texture has gotten much better, and I am left with dark pigmentation scars. If you have an recommendation for dark spot treatment, please let me know! I’ve tried lemon, but it’s way too acidic for my skin. Baking soda didn’t do much for me. Manuka honey did nothing. Vitamin C might’ve helped a little… I’ve also ordered Skin Apotheke Ubtan Scrub which has been raved by beauty guru EpicBeautyGuide and customer reviews, but it hasn’t done much for me.

The Dreadful Acne Photos (viewers discretion advised)

These photos are from 2 weeks ago. Since then, I had a detox peel by an esthetician in Los Angeles. My face was scarred from extractions for 3 days after, and it took a whole week for the raw skin to recover. After all that pain, I’m not sure if it did much for my skin.

From the pictures, there are tons of clogged pores, scars, whiteheads, and some cystic acne.

Products I’ve been using:

  • Desert Essence Jojoba Oil as sunscreen remover
  • PCA perfecting sunscreen
  • Dr Alkaitis Face Wash
  • NuSkin Enhancer (as moisturizer)

I will update with progress photos, after there is a bit more progress.

Feel free to leave any advice or comments down below.
