Hopefully what I discover, will help you in your skin care regime.
Edit: For my personal experiment, I will use AMBI along with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter to clear my skin.
My Skin Betrays Me
So there I was putting on my summer dress I have not worn in at least four years and when I stood before the tall mirror, I gasped.
Now. Where. Did. THAT. Come from?
I am brown skinned but there were discoloration hues beginning from my neck, shoulders and arms on down.
Basically wherever my short sleeve shirts for the past five years have been covering. I am the shade of Muenster cheese from the neck down now. And my pretty summer dress barely hid that fact. It looked as if I had gone to the beach and tried to trick the sun; and I don’t do beaches in Virginia. Too hot.
My husband sat on the bed and said, “Well, do you have a nice blouse to wear over it?”
I did, but it ruined the “beautifying moment”. I yanked off the dress and pulled on a skirt and nice shirt before we went out.
AMBI to the Rescue…I hope.
I remember AMBI soap from the 90s when mom used to have it in the medicine cabinet. A beige box with a weird design on the front.
I did some online searches to seek products to help even skin tone problems. It is such an unattractive problem to have and I am far from vain. I hadn’t cared this long.
But it is summer and that means being able to wear my arms out and back exposed occasionally.
With some research I found that my skin discoloration could be due to sun damage. Yes. It is quite possible for blacks. And so here is what I found to be the solution:
- Use AMBI Fade Cream.
- Use cocoa butter.
- Use sun scream, at least SPF 15.
I need for my skin to glow like when I was 21 years old.
I will test out the black soap theory an report back to you.
