Wax on, Wax off

I went to see my dermatologist sometime ago because I wanted to know what she could recommend me to get rid of my post acne marks.

(I don't have an acne problem and my skin is radiant and glows or should I say shine, LOL, but I had all these marks left over)

She recommended this $125 tube of stuff that would get rid of my hyperpigmentation marks.

Will this make me lighter... ?
No, it won't bleach your skin, just even your tone.
Are you sure...? I don't want to lose CHOLATEYNESS!

*Laughs* You'll still be chocolate, but you need to wear sunscreen everyday from now on.
*I looked at her like she was crazy* I'm Black , what I need sunscreen for??
For the same reasons White people need to--to protect your skin.

Lol.. I'm guessing it'll peel the top layer of your skin or something..
Might be why she says it "evens your skin"

Maybe you should just stick to foundation?!

I miss the good old days, when we could just slop on the Hawaiian Tropic and fry at will.

I'm not white, I'm clear :) with lots of freckles. . .and melanoma runs in my family, so I have to use sunscreen, too.

You'll get used to it. There are all kinds of sunscreens on the market - sprays, oils, non-comedigenic (sp?) Even makeup and moisturizers have them built in now.

Since I've had kids, that pink bottle of Coppertone Baby 50 has been a staple in my house. All summer long, I smell like baby butt :)

Yes, WE do need sunscreen, but for some reason WE don't use it or don't think we need it.
Hopefully, the $125 dollar tube will get the job done. You usually get what you pay for, so it BETTER work!

well, you can go to the health food store and buy some astringent like sea breeze and use it on your face...if you have dry skin u will need to mosturize afterwards...this will even your skin tone and it won't cost u 125.. you can get a derma peel and in 3 days your new face will be here...and then avon or marykay has something u can use at home
