The above products are two of my most used skincare items, I would have to say – they’re both well-loved and nearly empty but they do my skin a whole lotta good. After a good few months of constant breakouts, my skin is looking a lot clearer – except for the marks and dark scars they’ve left behind. This is a bit of an annoyance, but I know this combination will sort me right out…
The Kiehl’s Overnight Biological Peel (£29.50) is one of my favourite chemical exfoliators, it works wonders for smoothing and evening out the complexion and it feels so velvety once applied. The formula encourages the skin’s own renewal process, so you shed the dead skin cells (yum) that are dulling the complexion and wake to a more brighter skin tone. It works like a peel to ensure the skin always looks fresh and healthy, but it’s not harsh on the skin – it never feels painful or whatever and I always feel happier with the overall look of my skin come morning. It’s a miracle worker for dark marks because it’s constantly stimulating the skin restoring process.
I prefer to apply this than exfoliating toner for example because it pumps out like a serum and is just a lot easier to apply – and it feels instantly so smooth on the skin.
Another product that I can’t recommend enough for dark marks or uneven tone is of course the Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil (£20) – rosehip oil is known for its regenerating properties and it’s something I always reach for day and night. For one, I think it helps my blemishes (especially those under the skin nasties) clear up in no time, it also nourishes the skin so nicely and it really helps my complexion on the whole. This combines a blend of rosehip and seed oils and is volcanically-sourced so it keeps all the goodness the ingredients have to offer.
It’s very light, feels incredible once applied and keeps skin feeling oh so supple. I love applying this and it really agrees with my skin. It’s one of those products that I can’t stop recommending…
I tend to rotate these or apply the Kiehl’s product first and then work in the oil – I’m not sure which works best but they really make such a big difference to my skin. Obviously it takes a while for dark marks to disappear, you have to really be patient with these things but I do start to see a difference quickly.
Have you tried either of these?
