How I Cured My Acne And Found My Glow!


I've seen a recent spike in my DM's with comments such as

"You're glowing sis"

"Oh my god, your skin is everything"

"Yassss, Melanin!"

But you should know that my skin has not always looked the way that it does now. I never had terrible acne when I was younger. But when I moved to NYC my skin started breaking out. I went to a few dermatologist that only made my skin worse. I searched for years and years before I found a routine that works for my skin.

Before and After

The photo on the right is what my skin looked like 2 years ago. I would get around 4-5 pimples each month that would leaver very dark scars. Those scars seemed to last forever. And once they were gone, they'd just get replaced by new scars.

But there is a God, because the photo on the left is what I look like NOW! I don't spend a ton of money on products. And my medicine cabinet literally only has four face products in it... and without further ado... here's what they are!

STEP1: Vivant Skincare 3 in 1 Mandelic Acid Cleanser

Vivant Skincare Mandelic Acid 3 in 1 Acid

I was my face with this cleanser morning and night. The active ingredient in this cleanser is a AHA called Mandelic Acid. This particular AHA is formulated specifically for darker skin. And if you don't know, AHA is a chemical exfoliate. The exfoliation helps to turn over new skin cells. So bye bye old scarred skin and hello new baby soft clear skin.

I especially love this product because it doesn't irritate or overdry the skin. But it IS strong. When you initially start using this product, I would suggest only using it every other day. You need a week or two for your skin to acclimated to the product. If you use it too often, too soon you will experience dryness and flakiness.
