I’ve been helping women with skin care issues for a long time, and although certain advice (such as baking soda face scrubs) are fairly well known, derma rollers are something barely anybody knows about and it’s a real shame, because this incredibly simple tool is largely responsible for 80% of the success I see with women looking to get rid of acne scarring, get rid of wrinkles, increase the elasticity of their skin, and get that youthful glow you always hear about.
So what is it? It’s pretty simple really – it’s a small roller comprised of hundreds of tiny little needles that you roll over your skin.
Okay, so I know what you may be thinking – “Why would I want to roll sharp needles all over my skin! That doesn’t seem like it’ll help.”
In order to get a better idea of the benefits of a derma roller, check out Mariah McLean’s review and demonstration of it: https://youtu.be/weK-6nMz_aY
Suffice it to say, the derma roller essentially pierces down to the dermis layer of skin, which stimulates collagen and fibroblast proliferation. This causes new skin to grow within the surrounding areas, smoothing over old scars, creating a youthful radiance.
This process, although simple, has stunning results getting rid of – not only scars – but also uneven skin tone, sagging skin, wrinkles and fine lines, large pores, and hyperpigmentation.
Step Four - Use a Vitamin C Serum
You hear about the powerful effects of vitamin C all the time – it boosts the immune system, it reduces your risk of cancer, it helps eliminate free radicals from the body, and the list continues.
Again, like many of the methods on this post, many people don’t think to put it on their face (which is understandable).
However, vitamin C serums help take all the health benefits of this vitamin and super-charge it for your skin. It will help fade spots and scars from acne (as well as sun spots), refine skin texture, restore the elasticity of your skin, and even out any discoloration you may have.
Again, my recommended brand for Vitamin C serum is Petunia Skin Care’s serum, because, not only does it contain organic and natural ingredients, they are a vegan and cruelty free brand. I’m a big fan of all-natural products.
If you want a little more information on its benefits, Channon Rose recently reviewed a Vitamin C serum as part of her skincare routine and made a video about it: https://youtu.be/IHjqbX1S-H0
Step Four - Moisturize With Honey
Sticky, sweet, delicious honey has been used for thousands of years as an additive to a variety of foods, but its unique antibacterial properties also aid in reducing skin inflammation and redness while simultaneously smoothing the skin.
However, it’s important to note that you shouldn’t just go get any honey from the store. You need to find raw or Manuka honey, as it is the most effective. For less money than it would take to see a dermo
Simply use a q-tip to dab the honey directly onto your face. This will not only help moisturize your skin, it will reduce inflammation. All of these methods work together to help reduce, or even completely eliminate acne scarring.
For less money than it would take to see a dermatologists or do one session of laser scar removal, you can use all-natural products in your very own home to not only remove your acne scars, but the overall state of your skin in every way.
So, don’t despair! Go to the store, grab some baking soda, honey, and sandalwood and head over to Petunia Skincare for your Derma Roller and Vitamin C Serum. Once you implement this daily skin-care regimen, you’re going to see some amazing results and get a big boost of self-confidence.
