Baby Steps to Better Skin- Update

So far, hmmm….

Face Cleanser: I’m using the AMBI Complexion Cleansing Bar for now. When this bar runs out, I’ll see how much better my face is. If I still have pimples, I’m going for a liquid cleanser with salicylic acid.

Face Moisturizer: I’m not on this yet, because I’m still treating my dark spots with AMBI Fade Cream. As soon as they’re all gone, I’ll decide what to use.

Body Lotion: My skin reacted negatively to E-45 so I stopped it. Right now I’m using Vaseline Cocoa Butter. It doesn’t really give my skin enough moisture, but I’ll stick with it until I finish this bottle. Then I’m getting AMBI moisturizing lotion with Olive Oil and Shea Butter.

Exfoliating: The gloves are working just fine!

Baby Step 6: Bye-Bye Vaseline

I’ve been using Vaseline Sheer Infusion for over a year now. Before that, I was a Dove Lotion faithful. Neither of them has impressed me, so I’m looking to try something different. E-45 dermatological cream is at the top of my list right now. Cheryl Cole swears by it, and my good friend Obiajulu (who is even naturally lighter than I am) uses it too. I’m also considering Shea Butter by Vanity Oils.

I would have gone for Fair and White, but it lightens the skin and I’m staying far away from hydroquinone and kojic acid. I’m hoping that my natural complexion will be restored without any lightening agent. What do you think?
