For the past few days I’ve been using a 3 step regimen for even & clear skin by Ambi and I really like the outcome so far. Of course I’m not expecting unrealistic results over night, but my skin is already responding well to the products.
When I was younger I never had to worry about my skin, it was flawless and I rarely experienced breakouts. Although I give a lot of credit to good genes, I also took care of my skin. I never slept in my makeup, I drank plenty of water and I learned early on about the benefits of good skincare products. But after I turned 35 my skin started to change, I don’t know if it was stress, hormones or the fact that I started to get lazy with my skincare regimen; but I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror. I felt like I went back in time to those awkward teenage years when big unattractive pimples popped up right before an important event or a date.
The major issues I’ve experienced with my skin over the years have been connected to discoloration and hyperpigmentation . Like myself, many women of color have been plagued with those unsightly dark marks and trying to get rid of them can be a little frustrating. There are many procedures on the market today to reduce the appearance of dark spots, but they can be very costly and if you neglect your skin…they’ll be back. The best way to prevent breakouts, fade the ones you have and protect your skin from sun damage is to add products to your regimen that are designed to give you ‘Even & Clear’ skin.
Step 1 : Even & Clear Foaming Cleanser (6 oz.)
The Even & Clear Foaming Cleanser is light weight and requires one pump to cover the entire face. I massaged the cleanser into my skin, and rinsed with lukewarm water. After I lightly dried my skin I noticed that it didn’t feel tight and because of the salicylic acid, I experienced instant exfoliation and glowing skin.
- Vitamins C & E
- Salicylic Acid
Step 2: Ambi Fade Cream ( 2 oz.)
Next,I used the Ambi Fade Cream to spot treat the dark areas on my face. Trust me, a little goes a long way, so just a small amount on my finger tip covered each dark spot and faded without leaving a greasy after feel. This product is formulated with 2% Hydroquinon, which is a skin bleaching agent that works to restore skin in just 2 weeks if used as directed.
- Alpha Hydroxy Acid
- Vitamin E
- 2% Hydroquinon
- Available for normal 0r oily skin
Step 3: Even & Clear Daily Moisturizer ( 3 oz.)
The final step and one of the most important in the skincare regimen is the Even & Clear Daily Moisturizer. After the skin is cleansed and the fade cream applied to the discolored areas, the moisturizer is needed to nourish and protect the skin. I have meet many women of color over years who have said they don’t where sunscreen, because they don’t need it. Although it’s a fact that darker skin is equipped with natural sun protection I still recommend using moisturizer with at least SPF 15, but SPF 30 is better.
The daily moisturizer comes with a SPF 30 and only a few pumps are needed. This product not only contains sunscreen but vitamins C & E and natural soy. One of the biggest issues I face when using sunscreen, is that some don’t blend well with darker skin tones and they leave a white residue on your face. But I’m happy to report I didn’t experience that with the daily moisturizer and my skin didn’t feel heavy or greasy.
- Nourishes & protects skin
- Reduces the appearance of dark spots
