    I never used to pick at my face. Now, from just the last year and a half I have these black spots all over from picking at my face. My skin tone is all uneven also. Has anyone here successfully cleared these marks up? What was your routine?

    Obagi, combined with Retin-A.

    It's expensive, but oh-so worth it. I've only been using the system for a month, and it's done more for my skin than any other product I've used, and I've tried pretty much everything, including black soap, proactiv, shea butter, aloe vera, etc. The whole routine is a little time-consuming and you do have to go through a rough stage, but when it gets better, it gets a lot better.

    I used to have serious acne...black spots and uneven skin tone...I used Nature's cure for face and body...I used Ambi for the black spots and uneven skin tone (I know people say this stuff is the devil...), and now I use African black soap and a little cocoa butter at night...In the day time I use Oil of Olay...

    Black opal fade serum is good for targeting dark spots(you will see the spots literally peel off with this serum, great stuff. Hydroquinone in it and retinol as well as kojic acid). I also rub some rose hip seed oil and grapeseed oil all over my face afterwards.

    I use African Black Soap and Rose Hip Seed Oil. The black soap helps balance the oil, get rid of acne, and fade dark spots. The Rose Hip Seed Oil has high concentrations of natural Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C, and Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. The natural Retinol does not burn or irritate the skin like unnatural ones. The Rose Hip Seed Oil fades dark/age/acne spots and it has anti aging properties.

    Black soap and shea butter (or vit E oil) did it for me. Also washing with a white wash cloth ONCE and then putting it in the wash and using a fresh washcloth everytime I wash my face made a HUGE difference. (a wet washcloth is a bacteria breeding ground)

    i like the simplicity of this routine.

    that tonic seems like a skin treat so i think i&#39;ll make a batch of it myself. question though-- how long does this keep? does it need to be refrigerated or should i just use this up within a week?

    also, i&#39;ve been wondering where to purchase clay soap and i noticed you listed it. so, where do you go for this and is it purely clay or is it mixed with some other ingredients?

    thanks for sharing this NappilyInLove ^_^

    The Fruit of the Earth aloe vera gel has been helpful to me. The dark spots I have are steadily becoming lighter.
