8 musts to repair your skin… for pickers!


I’ve tried everything! Trust me.  Especially from the many many… many Sephora samples I get from being a VIB Rouge member… believe me… I’ve tried them all. These are just some of my favorite things I’ve come to find over the years.  I promise not to disappoint.  I’ve been told I have “good skin” but what’s keeping it that way?  I’m about to tell you.

I’ve had my set of problems and set backs and what I like to call “stay at home days” because yes I am a picker (I found something for that too).  My Mom’s even said, “I’ve ruined my face” but guess what, there is hope.  You can come back from it!  With lots of work and the perfect products!  So I’m here to help shed some light on this skin care situation.

These opinions are purely my own and I’m not saying I know everything so PLEASE if you have found something that’s your “FAVORITE” help a sista out!!! I’m down to try anything at least once!! Post your fab find in the comments below! I’m not only writing this for you but as a nice little reminder to myself to save face, if you will.

Here are some of my abs fave skin care products!

1. Renee Rouleau skin care

Love this brands! Especially her anti cyst treatment!

2. Mario Badescu skin care

Everything here is great but I highly recommend the drying lotion (it’s like sulfer lotion)

3. No picking toy

To keep your hands distracted and away from your face!

4. Regenica Repair

It has a growth factors in it so it heals the picking damage over night! I put it anywhere I have a cut, even if it’s not on your face it will heal it overnight! It’s crazy. Regenica specializes in anti aging collagen production and scarless wound healing!

5. Facials

Microdermabrasion is my personal favorite to remove dead skin but just having regular facials, even at home would be great.  Try ones that are collagen producing.  One of the coolest ones I’ve tried is the vampire facial. If you’re in the Atlanta area I recommend heading to Atlanta Face and Body to see Dr.Elizabeth! She’s THE Face Specialist in Atlanta and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

6. Skin lightening cream

I’ve tried them all but I’m currently trying Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

7. Weekly face masks

I’ve tried the bubble mask, detox mask, illumask, and my favorite peel mask like Boscia. Boscia Peel Off Masks (all of them are great) but I especially love the black luminizing mask. This masks won the NEW BEAUTY award. It’s my favorite peel-off mask ever! It helps boost skin clarity and minimizes the appearance of pores. Removes dirt and impurities, absorbs excess oil and reveals a healthy looking complexion.

8. V Beam

If you’ve done the unthinkable and scarred your skin (cough cough) V Beam is my jam!  You see results immediately.  Tightens pores, reduces redness, visibly reduces scars!  You will look like you got stung by 30 bees when you leave but that doesn’t last more than a day so no worries.  It’s worth it.  It’s EXTREMELY less expensive than Fraxel and can be yours for around $200/treatment.  Depending on the severity you may only need 1 but those bad boys that have been around awhile may need up to 4.  As long as you remember not to do any damage in between sessions.  This means use your picking distraction toy!

Just to get this out of the way, am I being paid for this post, No.  Although that would be nice.  For some money I’d show you a before and after picture but we’re not that close yet.  Plus, that’s not a pretty picture. However I was gifted these products to test.  And there are some (not all) affiliate links within the post and at no extra cost to you, I will make a small commission if you make a purchase.  It helps the blog run free for you! #sponsored  Thank you for supporting Verbal Gold Blog!
