I bet when you saw this headline you thought I was going to be talking about some new easy weight loss secret? Nope, so get your lazy a** to the gym and skip a meal or two or three.
This post is actually about fade cremes. Well not fade cremes exactly but dark spot corrector.
I know some people (especially black people) have issues with fade cremes. There are a slew of physiological self-esteem reasons and effects as to why people use them or shouldn’t used them.
However, that isn’t my reality. Personally I don’t have any qualms with fades creme, color corrector or dark spot removers.
One of the many reason I use them, Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector in particular is due to breakout, scars and blotchy skin. My shoulders and neck is where I use it the most to much success. My shoulders became a problem when I first started to really workout, between the sweat, hormones produced by exercise and a bout with poison ivy I had some unattractive black spots on my shoulders. Also, from shaving the occasional nick, hair bumps and of course acne breakout once I got rid of the “mounds” of problems I was left with battle scars.
So I turned to this dark spot corrector. Meant to be just for the face, I use it for other ares too and it has been successful in evening out my skin tone, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and even fade areas of darker pigmentation. With pure Vitamin C the dark spot corrector exfoliates to accelerate cell turnover on the skin’s surface, overall giving me a nice glow.
I use the Skin Renew, after my nightly face wash. I apply the dark spot corrector to the problem areas followed by the Overnight Peel that also, helps even out skin while I sleep. When I’m not using it on my face I skip the peel. I’ve found the dark spot corrector is great for other body scar removal. I’ve been using the product for about a year when needed and it takes about a week to see results however, depending on how bad or big the area it might take a full bottle based on your commitment to treatment.
I don’t use fade creams when I know I’m going to be in the sun because it can cause sunburn or even more blotchy skin. I suggest before using a fade cream, consider how your skin may react to it. Some of these creams have been known to irritate those with sensitive skin and make skin more susceptible to sunburn. Before trying a fade cream to even out your skin tone or to get rid of acne scars, talk with your skincare specialist or doctor.
They make face cremes, dark spot corrector and skin lighten agents for all types of skin and areas howbeit, holistic, natural or clinical. Just make sure you read the bottle and if you don’t see results after the bottle is empty- discontinue.
Remember you have to commit, don’t just use every other day. An even skin tone makes you look a bit thin and chiseled. By bit I mean you actually have to be on some type of visible diet/workout routine to begin.
