March Must Have

A few days late on my March Favorites hope you all don't mind. I am currently on a business trip so I will most likely be missing in action for a bit, at least until I settle down. I've only been here for a day and I cant help notice how women draw on their brows here with the wrong color. I think I will do a blog post on that very soon, any how lets get started with my March Favorites.

This month I am only giving credits to 2 beauty products, the reason is because these 2 products I can actually tell a difference after use. I have been obsessed with skin care lately, trying to find the right products to treat my skin. I have acne and I have a lot of scaring and some of you can understand, where I am coming from and the obsession with fading scars.

The first product on the list is a rediscovery, something I tried long ago when I was in high school. It was re packaged and re formula so technically, you can call this a new product. A sheet mask from Paris Sewame part of their PXE Spotless and trace free series. If you have acne and you have scars this is a great sheet mask to use and I highly recommend it. This mask is both whitening and moisturizing, when you use whitening products often it can dry your skin out so adding in the moisturizing ingredients really helps. I believe I mention earlier that the best way to remove scars or fade them is to use whitening products. There's tons of masks out in the market for both whitening and moisturizing but the main difference to this one is, it removes your acne as well. So you are really getting acne removal, whitening and moisturizing all in one and I can tell you I tried a lot of sheet masks. This is the only one that stands out from among the crowd, that claims to help acne and scars. I usually use the mask twice per week depending on the quality of my skin, if I am not getting much acne than I probably go with just a whitening mask.

The second and the last product on my list is a scrub from St.Ives. The apricot scrub for blackheads and blemishes, seriously I don't even know what I was thinking not picking this up earlier. This products was raved about 2 years ago but I just never really love the appearance of it. Every time I head to a drug store and is about to purchase it, I would open the cap and squeeze out a little bit to see how it looks. Thats where it threw me off, I just didn't like how the products looks to me is nasty. So every single time I would just put it back to where it belongs and move on to another product. But lately I needed a stronger scrub, so I finally got over how ugly it looks and purchased the scrub. I can tell you I regret not doing that earlier because this stuff really helps your acne, especially with scars. This helps to scrub off the dead skin, helping the pores to stay clear therefore it prevents acne from forming. When you scrub off dead skin it helps to sent signals to your brain to repair it and to speed up the recovery to form a new layer of skin. When the new layer of skin is formed it lightens the scars and when you constantly use this scrub it helps to lighten the scars faster. I actually use this every single day ever since I purchased it, I can see a major difference to the scars on face and the texture of my skin. Is really up to you how many times you want to use this product per week, but if you have clear skin (especially with sensitive skin)and just want it as an exfoliator I would recommend using it twice a week.

I revamp my site a little bit more, you can now look for me in other places with the links I provided on my blog. Look for the heading "Where Else To Find Me" which is located on the left hand side of my blog and you can find me on my Beauty channel on YouTube and Facebook Page. Hope you all have a great day and week and I will talk to you all soon.
