So I have NEVER had super clear skin in my life and it sucks. I just got off of accutane and want my face just to be clear. Right now there are some acne marks, these black dots (not moles so i am guessing they are black headsears but I've had them for like y) and just relatively uneven brown skin. The accutane has cleared up the acne and I am super pleased with it...but my face just has some acne scars mixed with minor craters...at the end of the day I'm upset at my genetics and I just want to fix it starting topically and perhaps later considering dermatologic lasers (fractional lasers, fraxel, etc...) Its the skin and not so much my facial features I am upset about (so its not like im thinking about plastics or anything)
With this in mind, I was curious from someone who went from bad skin to perfectly super clear skin of the same texture and without any specks (acne, whiteheads, blackheads)...what regimen worked best for you? I have been cleansing with cetaphil and st ives exfoliator and using likas papaya soap and they are good products...but I don't think they are really dealing with the problem at hand. What products/regimen worked for you guys...? I'd like to get that natural brown shiny tone based on my ethnic look. Or are topicals simply futile and do I need to start seeking out procedures?
Thanks a lot!
