Yep. I’ve found the best moisturizer for hyperpigmented and textured skin. As you know I’ve been using vitamin e oil as a moisturizer for a while now, but I’ve upgraded to one with a higher IU (international unit), which means that it’s thicker (more concentrated). However, it was too thick, so I picked up Mederma’s dry oil in CVS and started adding a small drop or two and my God, the results were out of control. I’m not kidding, after using this twice a day (morning and night) on my face and certain parts of my body, I’ve noticed a dramatic decrease in my discoloration, scarring and bumps on the back of my arms. This is the best moisturizer for anyone with unwanted dark spots, scars and even ingrown hairs.
Like I said before, I have discoloration all over and I scar so easily and it’s very upsetting. I also had some strange roundish, pink splotches on my chest that dermatologist told me was Tinea Versicolor (a gross sounding “disease” that is the growth of too much of the natural fungus we have in our skin and it’s apparently very common so don't make fun of me bye). You guys, I had these Tinea Versicolor spots on my skin for almost a year… and within TWO DAYS of putting the vitamin e/Mederma mixture on them, THEY WERE GONE. Like… fucking GONE. I can’t even tell you the relief I felt! Especially because they were gone right before summer aka the fourth of July aka bathing suit season.
Also, any scarring that I had on my face from me picking at recent acne disappeared and new pimples/spots that may have turned into scars stood absolutely no chance. Even some raised scars that I’ve had on my legs for years from playing sports/being generally clumsy are basically completely flush with the rest of my skin. It also helped smooth some bumps and discoloration I had on the back of my arms. I have no idea why that was happening to me, but I’m glad that they’re gone now. You can probably hear my sighs of relief from wherever you are right now, huh? I know.
Oh, you thought I was done?
Nope. With it being summer and all, I know people are getting waxed and plucked and shaved and whatever and that can lead to some pretty fucked up shit happening downtown - i.e. ingrown hairs. Ingrown's are now a thing of the past for your girl. I know, I sound like an infomercial, but seriously it’s just because I wish I had known about this sooner! It’s changed so many things for me and has made me literally feel so much more confident in my skin, which is the most important thing of all here. I'm not that vain.
All I do is take 2 parts vitamin e oil to 1 part Mederma oil and I rub it into my skin wherever I need/want to. You’ll look very oily at first, but your skin will drink it up, don’t worry, just give it a minute to sink in. In terms of washing my face, I'll go more in depth in the future if you'd like, but I rotate between Fizz Bath Co's Coffee Dirt and this awesome Natural Aqua Gel Cure.
So, If you suffer from any of these problems, or even if you’re just looking for some wrinkle prevention/softening, I highly recommend this combination to you. Honestly, what have you got to lose? Let me know if you grab these items and let me know how they worked for you! Take care, you guys.
