How I Get Rid Of Dark Spots in Just Two Weeks: My Updated Skincare Routine

Beauty, Life


Feb 9, 2023


My skincare journey and routine has been quite an interesting ride over the past five years. That’s when I first developed cystic acne and dark spots brought on by hormonal imbalance.

The one thing that helped to clear the breakouts, settle my skin and fade the dark spots left behind, was a chemical peel. I actually documented the entire process in my most popular YouTube video to date. It has over 700,000 views!

Since then, my skin has been fairly good to me. I’ve had the occasional breakout, as expected, with life, diet and weather conditions constantly changing, but while I could handle a pimple or two, I absolutely cannot stand the dark marks they leave behind.

These pesky dark spots on the face that linger for weeks, months and sometimes years are a nagging problem I have with my skin now. I hate the fact that they make me rethink my makeup-free days and even when wearing makeup they sometimes poke through.

I’ve tried a whole bunch of products that promised to remove my dark marks, but…lies! That is until I recently adopted a new skincare regimen.

I’ve been implementing this routine into my daily self-care process for a while now and it works wonders with fading my dark marks in just a few weeks. I consistently use a total of nine products from three brands and they’re literally like my holy trinity for clear skin.

Here are the products I use in order:

Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Cleanser || The Ordinary Glycolic Acid toner || The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser || The Ordinary Hyaluronic acid || The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin serum || The Ordinary Niacinamide serum || Good Molecules discoloration correcting serum || The Ordinary Natural Factors Moisturizer || Black Girl Sunscreen
