**Video Post** Hey Stars!  I want to share something with you that I’ve been struggling with.  It’s one of my personal goals that I’ve been trying to accomplish since the beginning of the year, but have been failing at horribly 😀  My skin.  I’m on a quest to achieve healthy & beautiful skin before the end of 2013 and Lactic Acid Peels are gonna help me get there. 

Lactic Acid Peels for Dark Acne Prone Skin - Results with Pics

I have very sensitive, oily & acne prone skin and have spent many years battling adult acne & hyperpigmentation from acne scarring.

You name it and I’ve probably tried it. Proactive, Acne-Free, Murad’s, Dermatologist prescriptions, The Oil Cleansing Method, Oxy, Neutrogena, Olay, Aveeno (which I need to revisit – their colloidal oatmeal face lotion was the Shizznit).  And to fight the hyperpigmentation I tried, Palmers, Black Soap, Nadinola, Ambi, Pure Vitamin E.

All of this over the last 15 years and never have I experienced such a drastic & dramatic experience as I’m having with Lactic Acid Peels.

Lactic Acid Peels

Let me give you a little background.

One night a few weeks ago, I hopped on YouTube to do a search on oily and acne prone skin remedies. I was specifically looking for vídeos aimed at darker complexions or African-American skin. I was able to narrow down my search to a group of videos focused on chemical peels & microdermabrasion for darker skin tones.

One Vlogger whose videos I fell in love with was My Invisible Chyrsalis. She had some candid videos showing her TCA peel results and also showed her love of Lactic Acid Peels, which was pretty convincing.

Well, I’m not one of those people who follows things all willy nilly straight from YouTube so I coupled my videos with a lot more research of Medical websites & Dermatology articles talking about Lactic Acid and the benefits of using it on facial skin. Then I spent some time researching the dangers of chemical peels & jotted down tips about performing them safely at home.

So with all of that information, I thought about it, talked to my husband & some of my fam about what I was planning on doing, bought my supplies & got to work!

You really can have the skin you’ve always wanted with just a little extra TLC.  You don’t have to spend ridiculous amounts of money on expensive creams & dermatologist visits.  You can achieve great skin from the comfort of your home.  The trick is understanding your specific skin care needs and taking care of yourself by drinking lots of fluids daily (Water, Milk, Juices etc.)   Also, I stay away from pre-formulated skin peels with added ingredients like you might find on Amazon or Ebay.   I strictly use pure Lactic Acid and Distilled Water.   Simple Ingredients and Stellar results.

    Does it help with hyperpigmentation and dark spots? That’s my problem. Not so much the acne. I’ll get a pimple here or there, and then I’m left with dark spots that seem to never go away 🙁

      Yes it does Ciara. It’s not immediate though. For me it took a few months before the spots faded. Because the hyperpigmentation tends to go deep into the layers of the skin, it’ll take a few peels to tackle the problem. I noticed a difference after 2 months of use, which really isn’t that long. Hope this helped.

    I get great results from peels also, I need to get back to doing them. At first the only option was the dermatologist – not covered by insurance of course. Then I was going to the spa. Kinda pricey. Now there are all kinds of options available! Thanks for the reminder 🙂

    Great post! I have had stellar (heh) results with my LA peels. I did a 40% peel every Sunday for 6 weeks and now just maintain it once a month. It really is amazing, especially for lifting clogs and increasing turnover. Thanks for the ping back too!

    You talk about the percentage of the solution to use but I’m confused as to how exactly you are to mix the solution and with what? Did I miss something?

      Yup you missed an important part! You mix it with Distilled Water 🙂 You can use tap water too, but if you know you have hard water in your area, then use distilled.

    Awesome! I’ll be sure to check out your videos and try this. I’ve had this problem for many years as well. It became even worse about a month ago when I had a horrible hormonal outbreak. Thanks so much!
