A lot of people these days always go through skincare problems particularly with the face well Beauty Revolution Studio has something for you. Beauty blogger, BeautyInLagos on YouTube treated the topic of Hyperpigmentation, Acne & Acne Scars with the help of Dr. Bakare ( Head of Clinicals- Laserdemic Clinics).
To start with the question of Why, not a Spa? she answered by saying in a spa one is basically going to relax and de-stress and with a dermatologist, it is quite different, the entry level of facial treatment is MICRODERMABRASION which literally takes out dirt from the face.
Q: How do i tackle hyper pigmentation and uneven skin tones?
Dr. Bakare: First, start with a Face wash and I don't advice you use a regular bar soap to wash your face because they have different PH level so you do not want your face to be too dry or too oily, look out for products that contain Glycolic Acid ; it resurfaces your skin, the Retina A which is a night cream it could be Retina A (Acne Prone Skin) or Retinol (Normal Skin type) and finally sunscreen. You can also use Kojic Acid, Arbutin, Lactic Acid and Vitamin C they are natural lighters. In the long run using Hydroquinone and when you stop it creates a rebound of hyper pigmentation but the natural lighteners can be used as alternatives for the long run.
Q: How do you treat acne and acne scars?
Dr Bakare: Acne leaves a spot behind called PIH (Post Inflammatory Hyper pigmentation) so to prevent PIH getting worse it is advised to use Vitamin C. How to deal with normal Acne; this depends on the age, Number one treatment that is prescribed are contraceptives most frequently Dianette which is known for curing Acne but not a contraceptive appeal.

Dear Naturalistas ,
Have you been wondering on how to achieve a flawless Two Strand twist on 4C natural hair. Well wonder no more because you know you're not in wonderland. LOL. Whitney Madueke on her YouTube channel showed us how to achieve an amazing two strand twists with four products namely;
Jane Carter Solutions Curls to go;
Untangle Me weightless leave-in
Shine On Curl Elixir
Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor oil strengthen and restore lock and braid butter
Oye Shea Butter Mix. (which all work together)
First, she starts with her freshly washed hair and fluffs it out, then applies the untangle me weightless leave in( which she says sleeps well and is sooo moisturizing) all round the hair, then gradually applies the other products gradually. note that she uses lock method to apply the products;next apply the restore lock and braid butter which she says so thick and a great butter; then the shine on curl elixir which serves as the oil and the tip adds the shea butter mix. It is also important to detangle along the way. Something else you should know is to do tight twists which would last longer and lock method is the best to use for moisturizing. The twists can also be styled in whatever way you'd prefer, she used pins to pin it all the way back which looked absolutely amazing. And to emphasize how easy and good this style is she was watching her favorite show on Netflix while she was making the video.
