As we get older, our skin changes despite the many ways we try to take care of it as best we can. The fine lines still appear, along with uneven skin tone, dark spots, bigger pores, loss of elasticity and the dreaded acne. When I entered my teen years, I had a slight issue with acne, mostly on my forehead. Luckily I grew out of it. I’ve always considered myself very lucky never having suffered from severe breakouts and having not flawless, but fairly clear skin. However, this past year has been a lot different.
Having just turned 32 at the beginning of July. This change in my skin has been a little unnerving. I’ve experienced a lot more breakouts than ever before. Usually when that time of the month rolls around, one or two big suckers pop up on either side of my chin. Oh have they been painful! Scars are left behind because I’ve been popping them due to them hurting so bad. Feeling a little stressed about these new-found friends of mine. I have been on the lookout for something that will help ease the scars and discoloration that these little buggers have decided to leave behind on my skin.
Dermagist is a skin care company that specializes in Natural products ranging from help with Acne to Anti-aging, to Skin Brightening and daily beauty maintenance. I was very happy to try the Acne Scar Fading System for Acne-Prone Skin which includes their Detoxifying Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin with Resveratrol and the Acne Scar Fading Cream with Acai Berry Extract.
Here’s what Dermagist says:
The Dermagist acne scar fading system for acne-prone skin, targets the improvement of bumps, holes, and uneven texture of acne-caused scars, while soothing discoloration, redness and bruising with Collaxyl, Rosa Mosqueta, Glycolic Acid, Acai Berry, Niacinamide, Asafetida and Resveratrol. This is a GREAT alternative to paying for expensive laser treatments to get rid of acne scars.”
Many of the creams being sold today that focus on spots or discolorations use a dangerous ingredient called Hydroquinone. Which is known to have dangerous side effects. Obviously anyone who has acne scars like myself wants to improve the look and feel of those scars, but without the serious side effects.
Dermagist Scar Cream for Acne-prone Skin has no Hydroquinone and no dangerous skin bleaching ingredients!
Detoxifying Cleanser – 120ml
Most of the acne cleansers I’ve tried contained harsh ingredients that have dried out my skin and made it more irritated. The ingredients found in this Detoxifying Cleanser are natural but strong enough to tackle even the worst acne. This system tackles acne breakouts, but also helps reduce irritation and redness. Dermagist Detoxifying Cleanser is the first Facial Cleanser to contain the ingredient Resveratrol, which is a world-renowned antioxidant that provides anti-aging benefits.
I’ve used the Detoxifying cleanser every morning and every night before bed. It has been very calming and gentle on my skin. My face feels deeply cleansed, but not dry and tight afterwards.
It does have a slight medicine odour, but that is a given with most acne fighting products. It didn’t bother me. All it takes is a small amount (literally a dime sized amount) to create a rich lather. It leaves my face feeling clean, hydrated, and healthy.
Ingredients: Resveratrol Extract, Chamomile Extract, Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Tangerine Oil
Acne Scar Fading Cream – 50ml
The next step in this system is applying the Acne Fading Scar Cream. The consistency of this product is a very creamy texture. Like the cleanser you only need a dime sized amount of this cream to cover your entire face. A little goes a long way and it’s easy to apply. Dermagist Acne Scar Fading Cream is powerful, lightweight and leaves my face feeling smooth and silky. It does a great job at soothing any irritations as well.
Ingredients: Collaxyl, Acai Berry, Panthenol, Rosa Mosqueta, Niacinamide, and Asafetida root.
Four weeks later, I have no more redness, my scars and dark spots have lightened considerably and my acne is gone. I’m very impressed with how well the Acne Scar Fading System has worked for me. I have not had any breakouts since using these products. How awesome is that? Even though I experienced results in the first few days, my skin is still far from perfect. However, I never thought I would see this much of an improvement in my skin’s appearance and texture without surgery. And after a month, I still have half of both products left! Dermagist has created exactly what I need and want in a acne fighting skin care system. I will continue to use these products regularly.
