I have always suffered from hyperpigmentation. My siblings had the clearest most beautiful skin, but I was never that lucky. Growing up, my cheeks were full of dark marks, (left over from acne). Man it was hard being a teen (thank Heavens for my discovery of concealer and foundation). Even now as a grown woman I still get occasional zits (especially when it's my time of month!) and after that I know I'll have to work heavy duty to get rid of the brown mark left behind. Peels are a huge part of helping my dark marks go away and one I've been doing once a week for the last six weeks that I like is June Jacobs Pumpkin Enzyme Mask. This contains 15% pumpkin extract. Pumpkin extract is seriously nutrient rich with essential fatty acids, and zinc (Zinc is a natural anti-inflammatory) . This mask is also power packed with antioxidants, like green tea and red wine. So here's how i use it. The mask is fairly thick, a gel like consistency, and smells delicious, like pumpkin (I'm all about pumpkin recently, maybe it's because of thanksgiving.). I apply to my face, and leave this on for 10 minutes. I once left it on for 20 minutes (big mistake, skin was so red). I then remove. After 10 minutes, my skin is left glowing and soft. I don't know if this is the reason my marks have been going away so fast lately (remember I use about 10 products a day) but what i do notice is right after using this, my skin really feels smooth, and silky, and when I use my foundation, it just seems to apply better. I also love the massive sources of antioxidants in this. You girls know the plan: Looking 21 Forever! My qualm with this product is the name. This is def not a peeling masque. You have to wash it off.
All in all if you've never tried June Jacobs Mask you may want to give this a whirl.
