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.

Dr. Alkaitis For Acne

I should’ve written a review for Dr. Alkaitis much earlier.

The ingredients for this line is natural, organic, pure, whatever. 

It may work for people with normal or dry skin, but for people with acne-prone skin, I would NOT recommend this line. 

You won’t get a fully clean feeling from the cleanser, the toner and soothing gel smells like alcohol, the oil (which was raved as “liquid gold” did absolutely nothing for my skin, and the day and night cream were too greasy and smelled terrible.

I feel that the line will cater much better towards mature skin.

I appreciate the brand’s effort to using clean ingredients; however, it was a total miss for me.
