Ly-Na Pearl Cream, Skin Update

I have been using this as a mask every night and I think it has been making me break out with white heads! I really want it to work for me. I am usually not an observant person so.. I took pics of my before and hopefully within a week, I will update you with results, (if there are any.)

I know I made a review a few weeks ago about the Artistry products. I am deciding that I will return the products because as much as I like it, it does not do much for my acne besides balance my skin. Artistry has a 180 day guarantee so I am actually pretty happy with that. I will use the money to buy myself Mario Badescu products. I fell in love with my samples but I ran out and was currently using Artistry. SO LONG ARTISTRY!

GAHHH! I want a bare canvas to work with, not a pizza face!! What do you all suggest to help scars fade. I've tried Tea Tree Oil and this Ly-Na already.

Thanks for dropping by my blog :) I added you to my blog roll and I'm now following you on twitter. hahah! :)

Anywho, I'm sorry the Lyna is not working yet. I had that problem before (scars on my chin) and I guess I'm lucky that it faded. WHat I did is I used a lightening/whitening soap to fade my scars, then took vitamin E capsules to brighten up my skin. I also exfoliate like 3x a week and it helps me get rid of the dead skin cells.

The blot powder, do you want me to reserve it for you? :)

aww poor hun

im sorry you're having skin issues -- i would def. follow iyah's skin regiment, just seeing her before/after pix alone inspires me to change my own beauty routine.

+ taking into consideration weather changes, stress, lack of water or sleep, changes in diet, "aunt flow" (LOL) -- those reak havoc on the face.

Ly-Na cream has been working out fantastic for me. I usually use a peeling gel, to rid the dead skin, and exfoliate. then spot treat my scars or acne, then do the all over application of Ly-Na green cream, sleep on it stinky and then in the morning just use a good facial scrub, Ive been using the new neutrogena grapefruit scrub =)

keep us posted!!!

It's super difficult to fade scar, and sometimes more difficult for some than others. My skin heals really slowly, so my scars are super stubborn. I think La Mer works well to lighten my skin overall, but on top of that, I use whitening masks from Japan. Silk Whitia makes AWESOME whitening masks. They work so well you can see the results immediately. They're sold on Sasa.

Diane, you should try Top-Gel cream. That's what I use and it works great for me!

omg i thought it was just me. i think ly na works for me some days and others not so much : (

I find that with pearl creams, things get worse before they get better. Give it a couple of weeks before you write it off as junk!

Fei said...

Yes, yes. Just let it help your skin purge the zits that would've come out anyway. :D

Iyah said...

Oh, the blot powder is in medium shade :)

When using Ly-na, make sure your face is squeaky clean. acne actually gets worse when face is not that clean. Although I don't use any toner. :/
