|The best exfoliating toner to get rid of pimples|
Welcome to the part 2 of this topic. This time I'll write about the skin problems which really confusing me - pimples and freckles. Why is it so confusing? It's because of 2 reasons :
1. I never have any problems with pimples in my whole life, so I have no idea how to treat it wisely. I only had some pimples when it's my "period time" or when I tried new skincare which not suitable on my skin. But those pimples, will be gone soon - unlike the new pimples that never gone for more than 2 months.
2. Freckles (dark spot) always be my problem since I was a kid. I got my first freckles at 10 years old, and I still haven't found any products that could get rid of them. All I know the only way to get rid of this dark spot by doing a laser treatment, and I'm not brave enough to do it. Now, suddenly, these freckles appear a lot, on my cheek bones. Well, it's not as "dark" as my previous freckles, so I only can see these freckles at the very bright place. Even though these freckles still could be covered with foundation and concealer, but I feel very inconvenient to have it. Because my goal is having a clear - glass skin.
How do I treat pimples and freckles???
This is the most confusing problems because I'm not friendly with skincare for acne prone. Besides, I also afraid if I change my skin care into products for acne prone, it will make my dry skin getting worse - because usually acne prone identic with oily skin. I've found a great skin care - a toner precisely- which really effective to get rid of pimples. It's Some By Mi 30 Days Miracle Toner. I've used this exfoliating toner since last year, and it makes my pimple gone at the very short time. However, I just found out this toner has ingredients which not supposed to be used under the sunlight. The usage of this toner under the sunlight will cause appearance of dark spots. Therefore, I just use it at my night skin care routine.
At this moment, I need a toner for morning use and I have no idea what to use. I've tried the bestseller toner - Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Toner, but after use this, pimples kept appear on my face so I stopped it. At the end I heard about a toner with many good reviews, and I directly go to Sephora when I was having holiday in Malaysia to find out about this toner. I'm pretty sure you're all very familiar with this toner - Pixi Glow Tonic. There are 3 versions of Pixi Glow Tonic : the original (with orange color liquid), Rose, and Lavender. I asked the differences between them both, and I was surprised with the answer. She told me the original one contains Glycolic Acid which works to get rid of acne scars. It's totally perfect with what I need right now. The other good thing about this toner is even though it's an exfoliating toner, but it also can hydrate your skin. I have use it for more than a month on my morning skin care routine, and it shows a good progress to get rid of my acne scars.
When I say "how to treat it", it doesn't mean I get rid of it all clearly. I just try to find out how to reduce the appearance, because freckles can't be gone easily. You need to do a special treatment, within a long period of time. This treatment also not cheap so I'd think twice to do it. While some serum (such as Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum) could be used to reduce dark spots, but it takes a very long time and you need to use it regularly - literally everyday. Meanwhile, at this time I'm using other serum that can get rid of fine lines - which is the main problem on my skin right now.
So, how do I treat this freckles? I tried to prevent the appearance of other new dark spots, by protecting my skin with sunscreen. I know and everybody know that sunlight is the main reason for the appearance of dark spots, and we need to protect our skin from this harmful light. However, I don't like - precisely hate - to using sunscreen because they have a greasy and oily texture. They can be absorbed on skin perfectly and will ruin my make up look. For this reason, I live for 27 years without using any sunscreen, even though I live at the tropical country - Indonesia.
