I completely agree with this!! drunk elephant is a complete waste. I used the polypeptide moisturizer on my skin and it literally gave me bumps the next morning including the day serum is supposed to take away dead skin but turns out into me having a huge breakout. It’s very overhyped and over-influenced by a lot of tik tokers, influencers etc. I’ve also been seeing to many kids under the age of 14 use these products and waste their whole money or their parents money for a skincare product that’s not even for their age or skin! This brand is not good PLEASE do not buy this. If this product somehow works for you then you must have luck, but overall not good product at ALL. please listen and trust me.

@ILOVEMYDOGGO567 If your skin looks or feels oily everywhere, or gets more oily everywhere throughout the day, then you have oily skin. If your skin’s dry everywhere, sometimes to the point where you get dry patches, then you have dry skin. If your skin’s neither too oily nor too dry, then it’s balanced. If you have a combo of those things (example: my skin’s very oily on and around my nose; my forehead leans dry in winter and oily in summer; and the rest of my skin is quite dry), then you have combo skin. Pore strips don’t work on any type of acne, including blackheads. Some folks who see lots of little black dots on their nose think they have blackheads, but those dots might be over-productive sebaceous filaments* instead. When sebaceous filaments produce too much sebum, they’re more noticeable on skin. By contrast, blackheads are a type of acne called open comedones. They look black because the acne bump’s ruptured and air has oxidized the gunk inside (bacteria, excess dead skin cells, sebum). A pore strip can remove excess sebum from a sebaceous filament, but it’s not meant to dislodge a true blackhead plug. *Sebaceous filaments are tiny tubes that look like little hairs. When our bodies produce sebum (our skin’s natural oils), it runs along sebaceous filaments up to the surface of our skin. Sebaceous filaments are a natural and normal feature of human skin; we all have them. Sebaceous filaments aren’t acne. Something that works on both sebaceous filaments and blackheads—and some other types of acne—is salicylic acid, a type of BHA (beta hydroxy acid). This ingredient gets down into pores and degunks ‘em. You can try a leave-on product like The INKEY List Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) Blemish + Blackhead Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL or Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant , or a rinse-off product like CeraVe Acne Control Cleanser, The INKEY List Salicylic Acid Cleanser, or The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque. Whichever product you choose, start by using salicylic acid a couple times a week for a few weeks to see how your skin tolerates it. Then you can increase usage if you want; some folks can safely use BHA daily, but others can’t because BHA can be drying. Do you already use a BHA product?

Reducing acne scars can be a gradual process, and different treatments work for different individuals. Here are several suggestions for addressing acne scars: zoro tv apkTopical Treatments:Retinoids: Over-the-counter or prescription retinoid creams can promote skin renewal and reduce the appearance of scars over time.Vitamin C Serum: Vitamin C can help brighten the skin and improve collagen production, which may aid in reducing scars.Chemical Peels:Chemical peels, performed by dermatologists, involve applying a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate the outer layer. This can improve the appearance of mild to moderate acne scars.Microneedling:Microneedling involves the use of tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen production. This can improve the texture of the skin and reduce the appearance of scars.Laser Therapy:Laser treatments, such as fractional laser therapy, target specific areas of the skin to promote collagen production and improve the skin's texture.Dermal Fillers:Injecting dermal fillers can help raise depressed scars, making them less noticeable. This is a temporary solution and needs to be repeated over time.Silicone Gel or Sheets:Silicone-based gels or sheets can be applied to scars to soften and flatten them. They are available over the counter.Professional Dermabrasion:Dermabrasion involves removing the top layer of skin, helping to minimize the appearance of scars. This is typically done by a dermatologist.Sun Protection:Always use sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Sun exposure can worsen the appearance of scars.Patience and Consistency:Scar treatments often take time. Be consistent with your chosen treatment, and give it sufficient time to show results.Consult a Dermatologist:If over-the-counter treatments are not providing the desired results, consult a dermatologist. They can assess your skin and recommend professional treatments based on your specific needs.
