I started breaking out when I was 13. My cystic acne has left my skin with hyper-pigmentation and pretty severe scarring. Recently, I’ve started using Kate Somerville D-Scar Serum and Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex to help combat my uneven skin tone.
I’ve had pretty severe breakouts since November. I had clusters of huge painful cysts around my chin and jawline. So, I couldn’t give these two products a try. But now that my skin is slowly healing. It’s time to break these babies out.
Let’s start with why I chose these two products. The Exuviance cream has anti-aging properties to help with skin suppleness and elasticity. Plus, the name of the cream is Evening RESTORative complex. After that many breakouts, my skin definitely needs any help it can get. The cream has a light floral scent and comes packed with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and an array of botanicals to repair damaged sin and prevent wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid restores moisture in to my skin. This is very necessary since I used 10% sulfur solutions and benzoyl peroxide to treat my blemishes. Both these acne treatments are effective but also very drying. But now that my skin is healing, Vitamin A, C, and E actually helps with cell restoration, so my skin can heal faster. Plus, dermatologists have found that these vitamins also leave your skin brighter and more even toned.
Now, I know what you’re thinking anti-aging products at 23??? Well, here’s a secret. You’re never too young to start combating aging skin. We’re constantly being exposed to sunlight and who can really say they get their full 8 hours every night? Excess sunlight and lack of sleep can make you age way faster than you’re willing to admit. And with aging skin, prevention is key. Another reason why I love using anti-aging products is because the formula dermatologists put in to serums and creams to fill in wrinkles can actually fill in the pock marks and scarring on your skin too.
I apply the Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex every night and every morning, I use the Kate Somerville D-Scar Serum. The reason why I chose the Kate Somerville D-Scar Serum to treat my hyper-pigmentation and acne scarring is because the serum is applied with a roller ball which can help stimulate cell regeneration as you rub it over the scarred tissue. Plus, the cooling roller ball makes sure that the product is absorbed quickly in to the skin.
After 4 weeks of using these two products, I have found that my skin texture is softer and smoother. There isn’t a huge difference in my acne scarring and hyper-pigmentation yet but I can definitely see a reduction in redness and the depth of the scar. When you’re an acne sufferer, I promise that any little bit helps. With these two products, I’m becoming more and more comfortable with going out bare-faced.
