Have you seen those before and after make-up pics on Instagram? It’s hard not to miss them. Why? Usually the model has discoloration of some sort. Hyperpigmentation and dark spots are also quite normal.
Truth is, most of us are so self-conscious about our looks and make up is our best defense. I’m sure a ton of make-up is used to blend out and even skin tone. That’s not something we want to do every day.
Drop your concealer, lay off the filters. Here are some of Kenya’s own skin care products to help clear acne scars. They’re super affordable too and won’t have you breaking the bank. Say good bye to hyperpigmentation!
Bu.Ke activated charcoal soap bar
Activated charcoal is so popular right now. This humble ingredient is being used in almost every skin care product you can think of and Bu.Ke wasn’t left behind.
The activated charcoal soap bar is great at fading stubborn acne scars and clogged pores. Bu.Ke’s activated charcoal soap is about 450sh for 100gm. The all natural activated charcoal soap is gentle. It works by pulling out toxins, dirt and bacteria from the skin leaving it fresh.
Sheth Naturals Rosehip Oil
I bet you never thought of Rose hip oil. If you’re into clean beauty and organic products then am sure you have a few bottles of carrier and essential oils.
Sheth Naturals rosehip oil from their Mizizi range is about 1500sh for 125ml. Rose hip oil is loaded with skin nourishing vitamins, anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and moisturize skin. Its best for all skin types and skin that’s hard to recover from scars.
A bonus, rosehip oil is also anti-aging.
Femme Organics Green tea and Salicylic Acid Shea acne Cream
Femme organics acne cream
I accidentally bumped into this little known skin care product. The salicylic acid present in Femme organics is a great option for acne prone skin. It fades dark spot and scars while improving the complexion.
Green tea on the other hand is packed with anti-oxidants to help hydrate your skin. Helps reduce blemishes and oil production. Femme organics green tea and Salicylic acid is about 450sh for 60gm. The cream has Shea butter as its main ingredient. It’s light and won’t clog you pores. It’s also good with sensitive skin.
