I plan on buying a dermaroller and some oils to tackle these on coming stretch marks.




The question is should I begin now or wait until I give birth ?

maybe becoz i exfoliate everyday when i shower and then every other day i add the coffee/sugar scrub that i dont see that much dead skin being sloughed off...i just have more control with gloves and can scrub myself really well, the mitts not so much Disapprove

i dont think preemptive start on the stretch marks is a bad idea....it might be harder if you wait till they appear. i have both the 0.5mm and the 1.5mm....i use the 0.5mm more often

I use my koren italy towel after I have soaped with kojic acid soap and let sit on my skin for 10min then rinse off then thats when I use the KIT on my skin to exfoliate. I think soaking the skin with kojic soap prepares it for the exfoliation.

Someone stole mine i dont know which cousin, they both deny it. When i was raving and bragging about it i saw the green eyed monster in their eyesOuch

Midna can you speak to post peel skin care please. i asked a few pages back but you may have missed it.


Hey there, Diane~ My apologies for missing your last post!

First off, your cousins might be some broke ass haters if one of them really did steal it. Plus that is nasty, that is not something I'd willingly share.

For post peel care, you've got to protect and baby your skin all you need to. Ideally, you should stay indoors to protect your skin from UV rays but I understand we're all living our lives and may have to go out on a daily basis. In that case, use sunblock on your face and use it generously! Wear sunglasses, too! Are your car windows tinted for UV protection? Roll them suckas up wherever the sun hits your face!

At home, it's good to keep your skin moisturized, especially for not-so-superficial peels like the TCA. To keep my skin moist, I'll put some hyaluronic serum, my moisturizer, and "seal" it with a layer of Aquaphor. The Aquaphor keeps my skin moist for hours and prevents any tight feeling. I tend to use Aquaphor for only deeper peels like the TCA.

But if you're doing lighter peels like lactic or glycolic, I don't see a need for the Aquaphor.

Regardless, the main goals of post-peel skincare are moisturization and protection!

Bought AmLactin 12% lactic acid lotion.

It's not as thick as I expected, but it's very moisturizing! Definitely far more moisturizing than the Hempz I bought.

I haven't been using LAA for the past couple of weeks.

I've been using a sample of this:



Oh my god, this stuff is lovely

It makes my skin look so nice!! I like that it's not acidic so there's no uncomfortable stinging at all.
I love it so much and I'd buy the full bottle.. but hell no to that price tag!!
That ish is $85+!

I'm sticking to leeching samples from Sephora or I'll look for a travel size version to buy!

My face wont stop having this "look"
like it's breaking out no matter how much medicine I put it keeps staying and

I did a honey lemon cinnamon and nutmeg mask and it felt good but it's back to dry again

I got that epiliator for my face waiting for it to come... will it make my face look lighter? will the hair grow back stronger ?
