Need skincare advice, help!!!

Hi everyone,


I need some advice for my mom’s skin (shes 42,) her skin is kinda oily but not too bad. Right now her current skin care routine isn’t the best.. She has a lot of sun damage, uneven skin tones, acne scars, and dark spots. Any products you ladies could suggest for the sun damage, uneven skin tones, acne scars, and dark spots? Product suggestions would be helpful, and how you suggest she takes care of her skin. (from face wash, toner, skin cream, etc..) Thank you so much lovelies! PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!! Not a pro with skin care, hence why i need all the advice possible!! thank you!! 

Re: Need skincare advice, help!!!

Hello! I have a few suggestions that have really helped my skin with these issues and hope it helps your mom! 🙂
For her, I would recommend Biossance Squalane + Phyto- Retinol serum this will help with skin uneven tone, previous sun damage, scarring, and firmness. It contains Bakuchoil plant-derived source that mimics retinol without the irritating side effects. 
One other product I would recommend is Murad Multi-Vitamin Oil. It is incredibly hydrating and helps with dryness, uneven tone, and wrinkles. It boosts hydration and brightens skin. A little goes a long way with this product too! 
Also if she is looking for a sunscreen to combat any further sun damage I would suggest Supergoop's Unseen Sunscreen. It's very light and non-greasy.
Remember patience with these products, it can take our skin a few weeks to notice a difference. I hope this helps! 🙂

My mom just started using differin gel, its OTC now. She doesn't use it consistently, but she said she does notice a difference when shes does. I suffer from acne scars too and I read (and have been told) Vitamin C and retinol are your best bet.
