If you suffer from deep cystic acne then you understand the struggle. Skin texture is virtually impossible to cover up and extremely hard to get rid of. But the idea of at-home derma-rolling seems scary and unsafe. So, I turned to serums.
Lately, I’ve been using the Jan Marini C-esta Serum. This serum is packed with vitamin C, which is one of my favorite skincare ingredients!
The Benefits of Vitamin C Serum for Your Skin
Vitamin C is not just great for giving your immune system a boost, it’s also amazing for your skin. Vitamin C increases collagen production which helps to brighten and tone your skin. Your skin naturally becomes more dull as dead skin cells pile up and sometimes exfoliation just isn’t enough especially when you’re going through a breakout.
And if you have cystic acne, physical exfoliant can be too harsh and even painful. So, an AHA or BHA toner will be perfect to gently exfoliate the skin without further damaging it. Follow-up the toner with a vitamin C serum to increase collagen production and help your skin heal faster.
A high-quality vitamin C serum can also reduce the damage from UV rays and prevent premature wrinkling. The Jan Marini Vitamin C serum is gentle and effective. The serum is virtually scent-free so it won’t irritate even the most sensitive skin. Plus, the serum has hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin. This serum is also packed with vitamins B and E so it’s perfect for every skin type.

Before and After
This first photo is before using the serum. You can see the texture of my skin especially on my cheeks and all the marks and scarring from past breakouts. My pores are also a whole lot more prominent in this photo.
This second photo is taken after a full month of using the Jan Marini C-esta serum. My scarring is reduced and overall skin texture is smoother. Plus, my pore size is reduced also! Just look at what a month can do!
