Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Waterproof Easy Shape & Fill Eyebrow Pencil all day every day!! Stays on the hair but not on your skin so you can wipe it off with just a finger if you do make an oops. One side is the pencil and the other is a brow brush, it’s definitely my fave.

Hello! I have also struggled with blackheads for much of my life so I have much sympathy for your situation. First, I'd see if your skin is dry or dehydrated or possibly both. This blog and video can help: https://labmuffin.com/is-your-skin-dry-or-dehydrated-and-how-to-treat-it/. I have oily skin, but it's very dehydrated, so that can be a strange needle to thread. If you have a lot of blackheads you may have a similar paradoxical skin disposition. Depending on what your dark spot corrector is, it may or may not play nice with the lactic acid, so I'd need to know the active part of your dark spot corrector to say for sure. AHAs can help with skin texture, as well as preventing acne. BHAs will help with the blackheads too and I've found The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque 1.7 oz/ 50 mL to be great for clearing me out. Niacinimide like The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% or The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL can help with oil control and I've found it was a cornerstone of clearing my skin in a big way. Jojoba seed and rosehip seed oil are also well known for helping with acne control and reducing the appearance of scars. Jojoba seed oil is great for "replacing" your own sebum after a good BHA clearout without causing acne. Rosehip seed oil is also a natural source of retinol. Speaking of retinol, that can be a great help for scars as it encourages skin turnover. Just start low and go slow with it as it can be irritating or drying of you do too much too fast. Something like The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane 1 oz/ 30 mL every three days with a day of no exfoliation before the retinol day is a good base to start with. Bakuchiol might help, but it's effects on skin turnover are not the same as retinol so I'd stick with retinol.

@Samtian, I love how you tied in the letter of the week theme - ptui! So creative! 😍 I hate when the serum gets everywhere; so sorry to hear that! Did your mom also have serum running down her face, etc.? That’s so great that you and your mom have some masking time together!

I am reaching out about my acne and acne scars! I have been doing some research and it might be post inflammatory erythema? Most are red dots, some raised. My routine is morning: benzoyl peroxide cleanser, clindamycin phosphate (derm prescribed) and cerave moisturizer with spf. evening: paulas choice cleanser, retin a 0.025% (derm prescribed) and cerave moisturizer. I have been on tretinoin for a month! Most of my active acne and pimples are gone but now I have marks and dots. Any products or any ways to get rid of them? Thanks! Will attatch picture below

Hello! I see you've got some discoloration around your mouth, this isn't actually uncommon, and there's lots of potential causes. Hyperpigmentation is generally caused by inflammation, so I'd avoid any further waxing. I can't see much in the way of hair, but if hair is an issue then you're better off using something like SEPHORA COLLECTION Facial Razor to remove it. The usual remedy for hyperpigmentation is hydroquinone, which you may need to talk about with a dermatologist or a doctor in order to get, but it is more effective than anything else. Vitamin C, AHAs, and niacinimide can all help to a degree but they're mostly preventative. Hydroquinone is definitely your best bet. You might also want to meet with a dermatologist at least once or twice to get advice from a professional who can see your skin up close and potentially recommend procedures that will help as well.

@lexiranae, no problem. Here are some you might want to look into. Most of these are on the spendy side, especially the vitamin C-based ones I mentioned. The Ordinary's alpha arbutin + HA (hyaluronic acid) is a good one (and not vitamin C-based) at a great price point. Vitamin C- based brightening serumsTatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum 20% Vitamin C + 10% AHA 1 oz/ 30 mL - this contains a chemical exfoliant so when I incorporate this into my skincare routine, I only use it 2 - 3 nights per week. Also, sunscreen is a must every day if you're including vitamin C in your routine. SUNDAY RILEY C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum - this has a cream consistency. It might be too heavy for your skin. OLEHENRIKSEN Banana Bright™ Vitamin C Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL - this one contains a milder form of chemical exfoliant (PHA) and in a lower concentration. You'll want to test for yourself how often is best to use on your skin, if you choose to go with this one. Farmacy Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry 1.0 oz/ 30 mL - the combination of vitamin C and hyaluranic acid will be good for brightening, hydrating and retaining moisture Summer Fridays CC Me Vitamin C Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL - I haven't tried this one, but it's been on my radar for a while. No chemical exfoliants. In addition to vitamin C, it also contains squalane, which helps to boost hydration levels and retain moisture. NON - Vitamin C brightening serum - in case you're allergic or sensitive to vitamin C or if you just don't want to include it in your serum, here are a few that do not contain vitamin C: Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops 1.35 oz/ 40 mL - this is one you could use in the mornings. The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA 1 oz/ 30 mL - alpha arbutin is good for brightening and hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain moisture.
