PMD Decollete Update

  This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network and PMD. All opinions are my own. As promised, here I am, back with an update on the PMD Personal Microderm and how things are going with fixing my terrible lack of suncare this summer.

Retinoid update: how I got rid of my acne discoloration

  Alright ladies & gents, let’s talk skincare here for a little bit. Waaaaay back in the day before it ever even occurred to me to have a blog, I made a post on reddit about post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (AKA dark spots or flat acne scars) & how to treat it because at the time it was the bane of my existence. The process of writing that up was actually one of the things that inspired me to start a blog in the first place, so I ended up posting it right here too.  ...
