I miss the days when my skin was clear, I definitely took it for granted as a teenager. I was blessed with half decent skin, unfortunately, as I got into my early twenties, acne started to rise. Ever since, it has been a battle to find out what my skin likes.
I thought I would share my views on a product I have been really loving at the moment as I have seen real improvements after using it.
Here is my skin a few months ago, showing the redness and the state of my skin at a medium level of acne.
The product I wanted to talk about is the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Light Therapy Spot Treatment. You used to be able to purchase these as full face masks, however, they have since been recalled due to harsh effects on the eyes. You can buy these from other brands on Amazon and Ebay, but I wouldn’t suggest purchasing a similar product if the original has been recalled.
“Light Therapy is a clinically proven, effective acne technology used by dermatologists for over a decade. The energy from red and blue lights gently filters through skin and has been scientifically proven to target acne-causing bacteria, reducing the appearance of spots. Blue light targets acne causing bacteria while red light penetrates deeper to reduce inflammation.”
I purchased it from TK Maxx for £9.99 and the batteries are replaceable, so it can be used again and again.
It suggests that you use it for two minutes on each area and hold it there until it switches off. I use it on the areas that are most effective and since using it, I have genuinely experienced an improvement in my skin. I use it once or twice per week, alongside my usual routine. It calms down the redness and helps the stubborn spots reduce overnight.
I have used a lot of harsh products on my skin such as salicylic acid and Benzyl Peroxide and they do work but they will leave my skin sore and dry. Using something which doesn’t have any chemicals in is helpful, as there are no obvious damaging effects on my skin.
Have you tried light therapy for acne? What did you think?
