Hey Insiders! Welcome to the Well.
I’m on an infographic kick lately because I’ve been writing my eyeballs of in other areas of my life (school, work, journal). Fortunately, I am in the final weeks of my MSW, which really exciting for me but not great for this blog. Luckily, there are so many awesome cool visually pleasing infographics out there on wellness topics that I can share with all my pals here at the insider well!
Please enjoy this jaunt into the history of skin care, as well as a look at some tips for taking care of your fleshy self.
Have you ever used sandpaper to exfoliate your skin? (Ouch!?) Anonymous over at Market Treasury has, and this is what they have to say:
“I’ve been using a P240 grade sandpaper to dull out my acne scars for the past month. I’ve been taking it slow and giving my face a lot of time to heal in between each scrubbing.
It seems to be working. Yes, there is discoloration (hyper pigmentation)but I’m hoping to even out the rest to the same tone before long.
So there you have it. My scars are fading and I didn’t spend a dime (I found the sandpaper in a tool cabinet). I was hesitant to try it out but after all the peels I’ve done I figured I could handle a little sand paper. With a few pore cleanser applications I should be able to get rid of the residual lines the scraping causes. And, of course, cheap, at home chemical peels will keep my skin very near matching tones.
I’m sorry, but I lost the option to model once the scarring developed….and I’m broke.”
I’d love to read your favorite skin care tips in the comments. Thanks for stopping by the Well!
