Happy Monday everyone!
Just wanted to make a quick post on two products that I highly recommend to erase dark spots.
Even though I love the beach and sunbathing, I have noticed that through the years, my face was covered with dark spots from the sun, and every time I dared to go to the beach without sunblock, I would get these dark patches, especially on top of my upper lip.
I was mortified.
This meant that if I ever wanted to have a tan, it would have to be from the neck down.
Tanned body, white face: Awkward!!
Still, that is just something I will have to deal with.
I discovered that a good makeup bronzer is something worth investing.
I had found the solution to that problem.
Still, My dark spots where there.
Palmers Skin Success is a Hydroquinone based cream that helped me erase my dark spots.
It has its fair share of bad reviews, as a suppose other great creams do too. Some don't like its smell, some say its toxic.
All I know is that at a cheap price, my dark patches were gone. and it didn't take me more that 5 months.
Concha de Nacar de perlop is a funny story. This cream is quite famous in Puerto Rico and other Spanish speaking countries and the ads for it were just so CORNY!
I still decided that I didn't have much to loose by giving it a try.
It consists of oyster shell powder which is known to aid in tissue regeneration, promoting and accelerating cell renewal.
It also contains lemon juice, salicilic acid among others.
Its recommended to be left for 30-60 minutes on your face.

You can easily see my dark spots.

I had to use a lot of makeup, especially darker blush to try to disguise my patches.

I have no expertise on beauty products.
I am just a woman who is willing to try PRODUCTS at an affordable price before going to the expensive ones...
I like to recommend what has really worked for me.
I am aware though that we all have different skin types and that our results may be completely different.
But we will never know that until we try them.
