I recently read in a cosmo article that stated scrubs are not supposed to be used on darker skin due to scarring risks.


If you use a scrub/peel what brand do you use?

I use coffee grounds with honey but I am considering using something else, just haven't found a substitute yet.

Sugar or baking soda mostly. 

St. Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub when I remember to buy it.

St Ives Apricot scrub. 

An aesthetician told me some years ago that it's harsh for facial skin but I haven't had any problems.

Facial Sponge or Lactic Acid......also have the St Ives but Mr00 uses it.....
 
 
I was researching making a scrub from jojoba beads and Azduki beans because they dont have those jagged edges like Apricot shell do....let me see if I can paste a recipe I like.....fyi the idea cam from a scrub mad by bobbi brown that i was too cheap to buy.

DIY: Daily Cleansing Grains:

5 parts oat flour
3 parts adzuki bean flour
2 parts bentonite clay
1 part rice flour

First, grind the adzuki beans in coffee grinder until they are a fine powder. Using a fine mesh strainer, sift the ground adzuki beans and discard coarser pieces (see http://floraesthetics.blogspot.com/2013/01/diy-adzuki-body-scrub.html" rel="nofollow - Adzuki Body Scrub recipe for using coarse adzuki). Depending on your preference, you can leave the adzuki powder a little coarse or you grind and sift the powder a second time to get a fine, even texture. I do it twice.
 

Then combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. To get a uniform consistency, I grind and sift the cleansing grain mixture one more time, but this is not necessary. Store the cleansing grains in a clean glass jar or spice shaker with a sifter top.  

I make about 6 oz by replacing "parts" with "tablespoons" in the recipe, but I recommend trying out a small batch first. You can adjust the ratios or add new ingredients as you experiment with new batches.

To use, mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of the grains with warm water in a small bowl. I use a small glass votive candle container. Stir the mixture into a paste and gently massage onto your face. For a mini facial, leave the grains on your skin for 1-2 minutes. Then rinse off with warm water. It sounds simple, but I find that people can be intimidated by the prospect of "mixing" their cleanser to the right consistency. I never get it exactly right. And sometimes, that's my favorite part.

Lactic acid lotion (thanks BHM) and exfoliating 2x/week for my face. It's keeping my face from looking dusty this winter lol

It doesn't touch my mouth area tho. Sh*t took a thin strip of color off my lip about 3 months ago.Ouch

There was a thread recently with tips to lighten uneven lips

If someone could bump that it'd be nice!

latic acid and kojic san...has been the ish in just 3 weeks. I want to wait 2 months before I post before and afters.  I want to start SA peels and then move into tca.
 
lactic acid isn't dramatic but it shrunk my pores and made me bright not light if tha makes sense

And I also have a clarisonic and a facial brush from ULTA. I favor my ULTA brush slightly over my clarisonic. I also use kojie san soap and tca peels. I like putting the baking soda or sugar on my ULTA brush and using it on my face.
