Someone please help ive tried glycolic acid, lightening creams, and exfoliated for a while now. If you have Any answers please let me know because im desperate now

Re: Small dark under bumps that appear as dark circles

@savvz I think this is a good product for you. There are a lot of benefits from it, everything you are looking for. I have personally never had this problem but I do occasionally have creases, which I do correct with other products from Sephora.

I don't know what's causing this, but I do know what it's like to hate my skin, so PLEASE do now what I wish I'd done decades earlier and see a dermatologist. Before you tell me to go scrooge myself, this isn't the expensive, time-consuming ordeal it used to be. Telemedicine services like Curology (I use it, I don't work for them, I just haven't tried the other ones) often offer a free trial month or at the worst, cost $25 for the first month. You send them photos of your bare skin, and they generally can diagnose you and prescribe a custom mix of ingredients they will send you a bottle of. Mostly they focus on Retin-A and topical antibiotics for acne and wrinkles, but they also offer you advice, product recommendations, and unlimited answers to any question you ask. If you have something their products don't treat, they can send a prescription to your local pharmacy. It's been amazing to me to be able to send a message at three in the morning when I have a question or problem and get an answer from a qualified dermatologist the next day. If it turns out that you don't want their products or they say they can't help you, you just cancel it. There's no contract. You've probably spent way more than $25 on products that didn't work, so this is definitely worth a try. Good luck!
